How Hanuman Got the name Bajrang Bali?

Bajrang Bali means the strong one and is a popular name of Hanuman. Legend has it that Hanuman was given the title Bajrang Bali by Devas or Demi Gods. It is believed that the Gods blessed Hanuman with immeasurable strength.

Hanuman in his childhood reaches for the sun thinking it to be a fruit. Indra uses his thunderbolt to stop Hanuman. The thunderbolt strikes Hanuman on his cheek and child Hanuman falls on to earth. Vayu picks him up midair and goes into a cave.
An angry Vayu avenges this attack on his son by removing air from earth. Soon all beings suffocate. Terrified, Devas approach Brahma who tells them the reason.
Soon Devas and Brahma reach the cave. Brahma revives Hanuman. All the gods present their give Hanuman a boon each.
Devas blessed him with unfathomable strength, which will never diminish and Agni blessed him that fire will not touch him.
After attaining such powers, Hanuman was called Bajrang Bali by the Devas.

All my talks are conceptual entertainment – Nisargadatta Maharaj

The highest state is the unborn state, in which there is no experience.

As long as you take yourself to be a person, a body and a mind, separate from the stream of life, having a will of its own, pursuing its own aims, you are living merely on the surface and whatever you do will be short-lived and of little value, mere straw to feed the flames of vanity.
All this profound talk is nothing but mental entertainment. As you go further into spirituality you will realize that the 'I Am' is the very God or soul of an infinite number of universes, but the 'I Am' is again entertainment. All my talks are conceptual entertainment. Nisargadatta Maharaj
