“Those who dwell in the realm of Pure Actions, their words are powerful with the ability to connect the listener with Ram. No one can take their power away. In this realm, dwell great warriors who have mastered their mind, body and senses. They are completely imbued with Ram. Where there is the Sun-like Ram, there is the Moon-like Sita, who threads coolness and tranquility in to the fabric of their being.” – Guru Nanak Dev ji (Guru Granth Sahib, 8)
This painting of Hanuman ji was inspired by the species of Indian monkeys named after him, known as ‘Hanuman Langur’. Even though most people associate the image of Hanuman ji with ‘Rhesus Monkeys’, I thought it would be interesting to see Hanuman ji with the facial characteristics of the ‘Hanuman Langur’, with black-skin and white fur.
