Thus wearing the trophies of his first battle, fought while still in his mother's womb, Hanuman gloriously entered this world.Indeed, having both Shiva and Vayu as his illustrious fathers, he was no ordinary child.Hanuman was restless, spirited, energetic and inquisitive.He was obviously endowed with awesome strength and the scriptures abound in tales expounding on his remarkable feats.Taken aback by the child's spirited and playful defiance, Indra stuck at Hanuman with his thunderbolt, and the wound thus inflicted hurtled him speedily down to the earth.His father Vayu immediately sprung to his rescue and caught him in mid air.The sight of his beloved son lying helpless in his arms infuriated the wind-god.He drew in a mighty breath and sucked away all the air from the cosmos. The gods, realizing their folly, went in unison to Vayu and asked for his forgiveness.
When the unsuspecting mother was asleep, he directed the missile into her womb.Since they were in simian form it was but natural that the offspring born of such a union too would be a monkey.Not desiring to go against the laws of nature, Shiva directed the wind god Vayu to carry his semen from Parvati's womb, and deposit it into that of Anjana - a female monkey, who at that very moment was praying for a male child.It will be seen later how this apparently insignificant matter lays bare the symbolical significance of Hanuman. "During the day I ride across the sky, and at night I am too tired to do anything." "Then teach me as you ride across the sky during the day.As he grew up, Hanuman sought to educate himself and for this purpose he chose Surya the sun god as his guru saying: "You see everything there is to see in the universe and you know everything there is to know. I will fly in front of your chariot, facing you from dawn to dusk." Impressed by Hanuman's zeal and determination, Surya accepted him as his pupil.
