Hanuman Ji History In After The Ramayana War:


After the war, and after reigning for several years, the time arrived for Rama to depart to his supreme abode Vaikuntha. Rama knew that Hanuman won't let him go as he was his greatest ardent devotee.And so Rama took off his ring and threw into a small crack in the ground. He then let Hanuman know about this and asked him to go and get it. At the words of his Lord, Hanuman minimized his body to the shape of an ant and went inside to find the ring. Rama then went to the Sarayu River for his final journey. Meanwhile, Hanuman encountered Vasuki The King of Naglok. Hanuman told him about the ring and then Vasuki took him to the centre of NagLok where many rings were kept. Hanuman picked one up and it was Raghunandan's. But then he picked another one and it was Rama's also. Hanuman couldn't understand. Vasuki then told Hanuman that "When Shri Rama's ring will fall, it is a sign that Rama is leaving Earth". Hearing this Hanuman with the ring quickly went to meet his Lord at the Sarayu River .Many of Rama's entourage, including Sugriva, decided to depart with him. Hanuman, however, requested from Rama that he will remain on earth as long as Rama's name was venerated by people. Rama accorded Hanuman that desire, and granted that his image would be installed at various public places, so he could listen to people chanting Rama's name. He is one of the immortals (Chiranjivi) of Hinduism.[23]

Hanuman Ji History In Hanumad Ramayana:



After the victory of Rama over Ravana, Hanuman went to the Himalayas. There he scripted a version of the Ramayana on the Himalayan mountains using his nails, recording every detail of Rama's deeds. When Maharishi Valmiki visited him to show him his own version of the Ramayana, he saw Hanuman's version and became very disappointed.

When Hanuman asked Valmiki the cause of his sorrow, the sage said that his version, which he had created very laboriously, was no match for the splendour of Hanuman's, and would therefore go ignored. At this, Hanuman discarded his own version, which is called the Hanumad Ramayana. Maharishi Valmiki was so taken aback that he said he would take another birth to sing the glory of Hanuman which he had understated in his version.

Later, one tablet is said to have floated ashore during the period of Mahakavi Kalidasa, and hung at a public place to be deciphered by scholars. Kalidasa is said to have deciphered it and recognised that it was from the Hanumad Ramayana recorded by Hanuman in an extinct script, and considered himself very fortunate to see at least one pada of the stanza.
