Shri Anna Ganapati Navgraha Siddhapeetham Nashik Maharashtra India

ll श्री अन्ना गणपति नवग्रह सिद्धपीठम् नाशिक ll


Shri Hanumanji or the devout of Shri Rama, the embodiment of strength, valor and courage is born of our epics to inspire in us the urge to stand up to our daily challenges and face life’s hurdles, difficulties, enemies and other not–so good factors with equal mental strength and courage.

Shri Panchamukha Hanuman is one of the most important upasana deity of our Guru Parampara. Inspite of rapid strides in technology, there is a growing insecurity for the average human being, both at emotional and physical levels. Sri Panchamukha Anjaneya Swami promises this security to all devotees.

Every Face of Shri Panchamukha Hanuman has significance

    Sri Hanuman faces east. He grants purity of mind and success. The Narasimha faces south. He grants victory and fearlessness. The West facing Garuda removes black magic and poisons. The North facing Varaha, showers prosperity, wealth.


    The face towards the East is Sri Hanuman Mukha in its original form. This face removes all blemishes of sin and confers purity of mind (Chitta Suddhi).

    Sri Karala Ugravira Narasimha Swami, facing the South, removes fear of enemies and confers victory.

    The face facing the west is that of Lord Shri Mahavira Garuda and this face drives away evil spells, black magic influences etc and removes all poisonous effects in one’s body.

    Sri Lakshmi Varaha murthi facing the North wards off the troubles caused by bad influences of the planets and confers all prosperity–Ashta Aishwarya.

    The Urdhva Mukha Facing upwards of Sri Hayagriva Swami confers knowledge, victory, good wife and progeny.

    Sindhoor (Vermillion) is a modified version of saffron made into a paste which is commonly found applied in Lord Hanuman temples. The colour morphs into a deep red which symbolizes the immense strength of Lord Hanuman and is the colour also of boldness. What better attribute can describe the divine strength and courage of the Vayuputra? Also the colour red signifies the muladhara chakra (the very first chakra in the human body) and it is the basis of the survival instinct and deep rooted fear complexes. Gazing at this deep red releives some of the fears and hence that is why the Lord of courage Lord Hanuman is painted a deep red colour in temples.

    The application of the Hanuman sindhoor reminds us to never give up and fight with life’s problems with renewed vigour. It is the colour of the warriors.

  • Maruti as the servitor (Dasmaruti) and Maruti as the courageous one (Virmaruti) :

    Hanuman has two forms namely Maruti as the servitor and Maruti as the courageous one.

    The servitor form is the one in which Hanuman stands in front of Rama with His hands folded in obeisance, His tail resting on the ground.

    The stance of Maruti as the courageous one is that of one ready for battle. His tail is upright and His right hand is turned towards His head. Sometimes even a demon crushed under His feet is depicted. To overcome problems of possession, black magic, etc. Maruti as the courageous one is worshipped.

  • Maruti with five faces (Panchmukhi Maruti) :

    One finds quite a few idols of the five–faced Maruti. The five faces are of an eagle (garud), a boar (varaha), a hayagriv, a lion and a monkey. The idol has ten arms wielding a flag, a sword, a noose, etc. One explanation for the five faces of a deity is that the deity keeps vigilance and has control over the five directions – north, south, east, west and the upward direction/zenith.

    Maruti is worshipped in the context of energy for the following reasons:

    1. To overcome distressing energy: To overcome problems due to spirits, black magic, ancestors’ subtle bodies, suffering due to Shani, etc.

    2. To control pleasant energy: If there is any obstacle in the pathway of the activated kundalini (spiritual energy) then to overcome it and channelise it appropriately.
