The Birth Of Hanuman:

Ramayana Stories

Lord Hanuman, one of the incarnations of Lord Shiva was born to Anjana by the blessings of Vayu, who later became Hanuman’s godfather. When Anjana was praying to Lord Shiva for her son, King Dasharath was also performing a Yagna to have children. He received a bowl of sacred pudding from the God of Fire to share amongst his three wives. By divine order, an eagle snatched some of the pudding and dropped where Anjana was meditating. Vayu, the deity of wind, transported the fragment of the dessert to Anjana’s hands, who ate it. Lord Hanuman was born soon after.
