About Hanuman Jayanti
According to the tales narrated in the Puran, Sage Narad once performed immense penance in the Himalayas for attainment of further spiritual enlightenment. The demi-gods tried to break His penance but were unsuccessful in doing so. Sage Narad was bound by ego when He came to this realisation and boasted to (Bhrama, Vishnu, Mahesh) about His achievements. This ego had to be broken for Narad’s own welfare in devotion.
Narad visited the kingdom of King Sheelnidhi where He fell in love with princess Shirmati and wanted to marry her. He came to know that the King had organised a Swayamvar (where a woman chooses her future husband among host of eligible suitors). He went to Lord Vishnu and asked him to make him as handsome as the Lord Himself. Lord Vishnu granted him the handsomeness of his physic but made his face look like a monkey.
