Hanuman ji's role in Mahabharata

What was the importance of Hanuman present on Arjuna's chariot? 

Hanuman ji is the most popular god of entire India.  There is hardly any village where there is no Hanuman temple.  His great popularity in his youth is due to his strength, wisdom and knowledge and he is the giver of all these.  Which is most important for the youth.


Hanuman ji's role in Mahabharata

In those times people used some flags, like every political party uses a flag today.  The Congress party uses the flag bearing the 'claw' symbol, the other party uses the 'lotus flower' symbol.  Similarly, in ancient times, they used Hanuman because it is a sign of victory and Krishna chose it because whatever action Krishna took in his hands, he always won.

He told Arjuna "It would be better if you accept Hanuman as the flag", so he chose Hanuman.  He listened attentively to Shri Krishna.

Hanuman was a symbol of victory in the previous era, when Rama fought the most prosperous state of Sri Lanka, he fought that battle with a less of Vaanar soldiers, his team was very weak.  And the party that was against them was very powerful who had a lot of power and wealth. It is said, Sri Lanka was so rich in those days that the roof of every house was made of gold there.  It was the city of gold.  The pillars of each house were filled with precious stones. So when Ram went to Sri Lanka with Lakshmanan, he said that 'this city is incredible!  But even though it is very full of gold and very rich, I would still like to visit my motherland.  For me, my motherland is better than heaven. ' Therefore Lord Rama went back to Ayodhya after winning the war.  Hanuman was a symbol of victory over direct weakness.  One who looks physically weak but spiritually powerful.
The Pandavas were only five and the Kauravas were hundred.  It was not equal in any way for the fight, there should be equal number of people on both sides to fight.  Therefore, to give justice, moral and emotional strength to Arjuna, Krishna said, 'We keep Hanuman as our flag.  So think that if they can do this, then you can do it now.

 Krishna always used to say this.

This has happened in the context of Mahabharata, let us understand it through a story now.

Success mantra: learn by mistake and proceed success.
Human beings work very hard to get ahead in life.  But when he does not know how to succeed, he gets frustrated, stops working.  If we look at this from another point of view then the failures in our life give us experience and protect us from making mistakes.  Therefore, a man should never be discouraged, he should keep working hard.  One day it will come that the fruits of hard work will turn into success.  This is the story of Arun.
Arun enthusiastically prepared for the exam.  Despite this, he could not top it and he remained very depressed and disappointed.  In the grief of failure, he gave up trying as before.  When Arun's trouble was found out by his teacher, who was his guide, he called him to his house one day.  He asked Arun the reason for the problem.  Arun told them that 'he worked hard day and night but the results did not come as he wanted, so he is desperate.
After listening to Arun, the teacher asked him to walk in the garden with him.  He took it to the tomato plants and said that look at this spoiled and dead tomato plant. When I had sown this plant, I watered it from time to time, also fertilized and pesticide.  Sprayed, but still it damaged .  So what ?, Arun said.  After giving so much hard work, so much money and time, if we do not get the result we want, then what is the benefit of doing so much?
The teacher said that it is not so and pointing to a door, he said that once you open this door and look.  Arun opened the door and saw that there were huge tomatoes in front of him.  He asked, where did all these come from?  The teacher said, the loss of one tomato plant does not mean that all the plants have gone bad.  Similarly, you worked hard but could not top it, but it does not mean that your day and night hard work went bad and you failed.
Many things matter while taking the exam, including speed of writing, health, mood and more which is not just a measure of hard work.  What you learned will work at every turn of your life.  Not getting what you want despite working hard does not mean that you have failed.  This means that you have climbed another ladder to reach success.


Lesson of this story:

 - If we lose today, we can win tomorrow.  It is not a mature decision  to left the trying to improve the grief of defeat.
 -Instead of getting frustrated, think about where we have missed.
