Uke: Shri Hanaman was a great Rishi. Is there any documented evidence in the accepted shastras/the purans where he worshipped the formless Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omni scient God? If no available evidence exists, what could have happened?
Swami Ramswarup: Documentary evidence is Valmiki Ramayan written by Rishi Valmikiji. Here, it should be known that Shatpath Brahmin Granth states that “Devaha” i.e., learned of Vedas always state truth and “Manushya Anritam vadanti” i.e., ordinary man state lies. So, being a learned of Vedas, Rishi, i.e., Valmikiji told the true story of Sri Ram in his Valmiki Ramayan wherein he also wrote Sri Ram as a man and a Yogi.
In his Ramayan, Kishkindha kand, sarg 2 (commentary written by Paramhans Jagdishwaranand Saraswatiji), Rishi Valmikiji states that when Sri Ram and Laxman met with Hanumanji then Sri Ram told Laxman that Hanumanji is a learned of four Vedas which proves that according to Vedas, Hanumanji worshipped Formless God.
Sid: Pranam Guruji, Guru ji its is said that “karam karo fal ki ishha mat karo” does that mean that one should not have goals or ambitions in his life. As many a times it is the possible result that drives one to do more hard work. Pranam Guru ji.
Swami Ramswarup: My blessings to you. We must settle our pious motto and work hard but we must not waste our energy to dream for our results.
