Legend about the birth of Lord Hanuman
It is mentioned in ancient texts that the servant of Devguru Brihaspati named Punjikasthala was given a curse to be born as a female monkey. It was announced that only if she could give birth to an incarnation of Lord Shiva that she would be released from the curse. She then was born as an Apsara named Anjana, she performed vigorous tapa or penance to impress Lord Shiva. She succeeded in her goal and pleased with her devotion; Lord Shiva granted her the desired boon of begetting His incarnation.
At the same time, king Dashratha of Ayodhaya was performing a yajna to seek divine progeny. He also after pleasing Agni devta was blessed to have four divine children. The Lord of fire gave him a bowl of sacred kheer to be fed to all his four queens as Prasad after which they will beget king’s divine children. While the queens were consuming the sacred kheer, a kite came to snatch a little part of the divine Prasad to drop it near Anjana, where she was meditating. Lord Pavana, the God of wind then put the prasad into her hands. Anjana consumed it and gave birth to Lord Hanuman. It is the reason that Lord Hanuman is also called Rudra Avatar of Lord Shiva. With Lord Pavana as his godfather, he came to be known as Pavanaputra Hanuman.
