- Flight: This has been the question of questions, could Hanuman fly, or like other vaanars, he could only leap distances. Many believe that when he crossed the great sea in search of Devi Sita, in actual he reached Lanka by taking big leaps with the help of the small mountains that fell between Mahendra Giri and Lanka. What Valmiki Ramayan says about it, No &Yes. Strange isn't it, how can there be two contradictory answers for a single question. Being a vaanar, he certainly didn't had the flight ability; but, being pawan putra (son of Vayu, Lord of Wind) he could. We must remember that this wasn't the only instance when Hanuman was depicted flying. In his childhood when he misunderstood Sun with a red fruit/ when he visited Himalayas for sanjeevani [twice! yes two times; details in much later blogs :)]/ when he crossed the great sea; in every episode, he was able to cover the extreme distances by flying, and that was only possible because he was son of Vayu. This... advantage was received by every dev-putra. Neel too, was able to survive Raavarn's aagneyastra attack, because he was son of Agni, lord of fire.
- Lanka Dahan: The famous episode that made Hanuman a nightmare in the minds of the raakshasas. To weaken the morale of the raakshas army and sow fear among the people of Lanka, Hanuman used the same fire that was set on his tail by the raakshasas and burned down whole Lanka.
- Immortality: When Bhagwan Ram decided to leave his human form and proceed to Vaikunth, people of Ayodhya and others also wanted to leave the mortal world with him. Shri Ram granted everyone's wish but asked Jaambvan, Maind & Dwivid to stay on Earth till the end of Dwapar yug. Hanuman, along with Vibhisharn were granted immortality, till there's life on Earth. The reasons behind them; प्रभु की लीला प्रभु ही जाने .
