Hanuman is believed to represent mind of a man and since we have heard many stories about Hanuman in our childhood, we could extrapolate from the stories how our mind works.
- Hanuman could expand and contract at will. We could extrapolate it to understand that mind is capable to expanding and contracting in any given situation. We could look at things in a narrow minded manner or broad minded manner. While things may look obvious one way, the other way is always possible.
- Hanuman was the greatest devotee of Ram. We could extrapolate it – mind should be a strong follower and not a leader.
- Hanuman had a curse that his powers will be forgotten by him and only upon reminding him and praising his powers will Hanuman be able to use the powers. Mind too needs reminder that it is powerful – praise is its fuel.
Now that you get the drift – happy learning about your mind 🙂
