Hanuman represents the ideal of service – Swami Vivekananda

You have now to make the character of Mahavira (Hanuman) your ideal. See how at the command of Ramachandra he crossed the ocean. He had no care for life or death! He was a perfect master of his senses and wonderfully sagacious. You have now to build your lie on this great ideal of personal service. Through that, all the other ideals will gradually manifest in life.

Obedience to the guru without questioning, and strict observance of Brahmacharya – this is the secret of success.

As on the one hand Hanuman represents the ideal of service, so on the other he represents lion’s courage, striking the whole world with awe.

He has not the least hesitation in sacrificing his life for the good of Rama. A supreme indifference to everything except the service of Rama. Only the carrying out of Shri Rama’s behest is the one vow of his life! Such whole-hearted devotion is wanted.
