Lord Hanuman is one of the most revered Gods in the Hindu religion. Lord Hanuman, the devout bhakt of Lord Rama is the symbol of bravery courage, loyalty and pure devotion. Lord Hanuman inspires us to face all the odds and to fight all the challenges life throws at us bravely. The Panchamukhi Hanuman is a form (avatar) that Lord Hanuman takes where Lord Hanuman is depicted with five faces. Every face holds specific significance and there is significance associated with this avatar. The Panchamukhi Hanuman is a very powerful form of Lord Hanuman and blesses by liberating the worshipper from all kinds of fears, enemies and negativity.
He is one of the prominent Yogis who is known to have gained complete control over the Pancha Indriyas (five senses) according to the ancient Holy Scriptures. The importance of number 5 is wonderfully given in the Tamil version of the epic Ramayana known as Ramavataram and popularly known as Kamba Ramayanam as it was written by the Tamil poet Kambar.
Let us take a look at the importance of number five as given below
Lord Hanuman is the son of one of the five elements (son of wind – Pavana Thanaya)
Lord Hanuman risked His life and crossed the one of the five elements, the water body to save Lord Rama
He could fly in the air which again is one of the five elements namely the sky,
He met daughter of Earth which again is one of the five elements – Sita Devi
Hanuman burnt the entire Lanka by Fire which is again one of the five elements (fire).
This may be one of the reasons why we take pradakshina 5 times around the idol of Lord Hanuman or in digits which if summed results as five like 14, 23 or 41
Story of Panchmukhi Hanuman
The Story of Shree Panchmukhi Hanuman finds its mention in the renowned and great epic of Ramayana. During the fierce battle between Lord Sri Ram and demon king Ravana, Ravana sought assistance and help from Mahiravan, the king of Patala Loka (underworld or netherworld). After learning that Ravana has sought help from Mahiravan, Vibhishan alerts Hanuman and tells Him to protect Ram and Lakshman during the nights. Lord Hanuman built a fortress with His tail around the place where Rama and Lakshman were sleeping. The entry to this fortress was only possible through entering the mouth of Lord Hanuman Himself and the exit was through his ears. Stealthily, the demon king of Patala, king Mahiravan disguised himself as Vibhishan and entered the castle pretending to check the arrangements Lord Hanuman has made for Ram and Lakshman's comfortable sleep. Mahiravan contracted the size of Lord Ram and Lakshman through His magical powers and carried both (Ram and Lakshman) of them away in his betel leaves box. At dawn when Lord Hanuman opened the fortress He was shocked to see that Lord Ram and Lakshman were missing. Hanuman understood that it was the conspiracy of Mahiravan and without wasting much time Hanuman quickly rushed to Patala Loka. While battling with Mahiravan, Lord Hanuman learned that Mahiravan was invincible as his life was preserved and safeguarded in five different lamps which were kept in five different directions, far away from one another. Mahiravan could only be killed if the five lamps were extinguished at the same time. This is when Lord Hanuman took the powerful avatar (form) of Panchamukhi and extinguished all those five lamps at once and thus killed Mahiravan and saved Ram and Lakshman.
Significance of Panch mukhis of the Panchmukhi Hanuman:
The five heads of the Panchmukhi form include Hayagriva, Narasimha, Hanuman, Varaha and Garuda. Among these five faces, the three faces namely Narasimha, Hayagriva, and Varaha are Lord Vishnu’s incarnations. Therefore the Panchamukhi Hanuman avtar holds the combined powers of Lord Hanuman and Lord Vishnu. All the five heads of the Panchmukhi Hanuman hold a specific significance which is as follows:
Hayagriva (the horse face)
The Hayagriva face is always seen facing the sky. This Hayagriva face offers superior knowledge, generates goodwill and will be blessed with good progeny. It blesses the devotees with the zeal and passion to achieve what they aim for and help them in attaining salvation.
Narasimha (the lion face)
The Narasimha faces the south. It blesses by liberating the worshipper from all kinds of fears, helps to stay away from sins and protects from evils. This avatar blesses the worshipper with victory and fearlessness.
Garud (the eagle face)
The Garud face is seen facing the west. This avatar wards off all kinds of negativities, black magic and ailments.
Varaha (the boar face)
The Varaha faces the north. This face is said to showers all kinds of wealth and prosperity to the worshipper.
Hanuman (the monkey face)
The Hanuman faces the east direction and blesses His devotees with happiness and fulfilment of their desires.
Panchamukhi Hanuman Mantra:
Panchasyachutamaneka vichitra veeryam Sri shanka chakra ramaniya bhujagra desam Peethambaram makara kundala noopurangam Dhyayethitam kapivaram hruthi bhvayami
