Many people say that we should not keep individual Anjaneya photo in our house for worship. He should always be with Lord Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. Any evidence from age old puranas or scriptures supporting this sentence?

  • An opinion - till the camera made it to India, I am sure the Indians and their forefathers used metal/clay etc. idols for worship at homes etc. Now it is believed that an appropriate metal statue stores the energy when you worship it ! Anjaneya is a celibate, having high calibre and immense knowledge of the 64 arts and so on. He is an ascetic more or less and a symbol of strength, sacrifice and selflessness. To host and worship such a god requires a similar lifestyle which is impossible for a family. Not in the house but at the entrance or the village entry, Anjaneya can be found Sep 22, 2016 at 16:31
  • @KA--He can take a small roop also. In samudra he entered in the mouth of a rakshashi and came out in few seconds. Sep 24, 2016 at 7:09
