In this modern world, we all are highly ambitious in our lives and we all are driving ourselves to attain success and a bright future. We try to keep ourselves updated with the modern outlook and ideologies that somewhere we have suppressed our spiritual self. Our Hindu culture has immense faith in Lord Hanuman and we all have heard people saying that he still exists on our earth.
Lord Hanuman is known as the ardent devotee of Lord Rama and he is an incarnation of Lord Shiva. He is known to be highly intellectual with immense strength and humongous body like that of a mountain. He is an eternal symbol of bravery, courage, energy, focus, destroyer of evils and is popularly known for his incredible control on emotions.
So the question is whether Lord Hanuman is alive today? As per ancient scriptures, he is still present on earth as he had been blessed with immortality. There are many evidences that prove his presence such as some people have spotted large footprints in the snowy mountains of Himalayas, which are expected to be Lord Hanuman’s. If you are a true believer of Lord Hanuman, read these 6 signs that indicate existence of Lord Hanuman to know if he really lives on the earth:
1. Nothing About His Death Is Mentioned In Scriptures
If you conduct a deep research on the birth, growth and about the works of Lord Hanuman in the Treta Yuga (the period in which Ramayana happened), then you will notice that none of the age old scriptures will ever mention about the death of Lord Hanuman. In fact you will come across a fact that the soul never dies, it keeps on incarnating in different forms. As per ancient Hindu mythology, some creatures have been blessed to reincarnate in the same form as they had originally incarnated and they live for ages. One of such creature is Lord Hanuman.
2. Lord Hanuman Is Immortal
Lord Hanuman is immortal as per many Hindu scriptures because his presence has been mentioned during the Treta Yuga and even in Dwapar Yuga (during Mahabharata). He is also said to have lived in the Kali Yuga, which is a proof that he is blessed to re-born in the same avatar for ages.
3. He Represents Lord Rama On The Earth
Being Lord Rama’s beloved devotee, Lord Hanuman had been blessed that he would be accessible to all devotees of Lord Rama till the end of this earth and will pass on his preachings to his true devotees.

4. There Are Evidences
It is believed that Lord Hanuman lives in the jungles of the Himalayas. Recently many big footprints on rocks have been photographed on the location and it is believed to be Lord Hanuman’s gigantic footprints. Also, on the internet you can see a picture sketched in 1988, which is claimed to be of Lord Hanuman’s.
5. His Presence In Rameswaram
Apart from Himalayas, Lord Hanuman is also believed to live on the Gandmadana mountain in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu. As per Ramayana, Lord Rama had to worship Lord Shiva to repent for the sin of killing a Brahmana named Ravana, who was the demon king in Sri Lanka. For worshipping, he needed the largest lingam and for seeking it, he sent Lord Hanuman to the Himalayas. Meanwhile, Goddess Sita built a small lingam out of sand and it was named as Ramalingam. The one which Lord Hanuman brought was called as Vishwalingam. Both these lingams are at Rameswaram and since Lord Hanuman was closer to Lord Rama’s heart, Lord Rama instructed that whenever anyone will come here to worship Shiva, they will perform the puja on Vishwalingam first. So this place is said to be Lord Hanuman’s residence as it is a memoir of Lord Rama for him.
6. He Reportedly Met People In Kali Yuga
In Kali Yuga, there are many wise and learned people who have seen and met Lord Hanuman. In 13th century AD, it is said that sage Madhavacharya was enlightened by the visit of Lord Hanuman. Even in the early 16th century, Tulisdasa was inspired by Lord Hanuman to write the whole story of the great epic, Ramayana. Also saints such as Raghavendra Swami, Swami Ramdas and Sri Sathya Sai Baba are said to have graced by the glimpse of Lord Hanuman.
