    @RakeshJoshi You are asking as if i am his PA..anyways obviously he is doing what he is supposed to do. I will tell u short true story that happened with my first Guru Mother. " Once my Guruji was going out of station and he said to Hanumanji to take care of Guru mother. After that Guruji left Calcutta. And, thereafter, wherever Guru Ma went, be it her kitchen or the marketplace she felt that some white colored being is always following him.. White colored since all body hairs have turned white..So Hanumaji is obviously doing what he is supposed to do i.e protecting his devotees. – Rickross Aug 8 '17 at 5:58

Yes Lord Hanuman is still on this planet. Shrimad Bhagvat Puran Canto 5 Chapter 19 mentions that he lives in the Kimpurush Varsha listening to Ramayan being sung by the denizens of the place and himself joining them in the singing:

किंपुरुषे वर्षे भगवन्तमादिपुरुषं लक्ष्मणाग्रजं सीताभिरामं रामं तच्चरणसंनिकर्षाभिरतः परमभागवतो- हनुमान् सह किंपुरुषैः अविरतभक्तिरुपासते ।

आर्ष्टिषेणेन सह गन्दर्वैरनुगीयमानं परमकल्याणीं भर्तृभगवत्कथां समुपशृणोति स्वयं चेदं गायति ॥

English Translation:

  1. S'rî S'uka said: 'In the land of Kimpurusha the supreme and greatest devotee Hanumân delighting in service at His feet is together with the people always engaged there in worship of the Supreme Lord Râmacandra, the Original Personality who as the elder brother of Lakshmana is so pleasing to Sîtâ.

  2. Together with Ârshthishena [the leader of Kimpurusha] attentively listening to the stories about his most auspicious master and Lordship being chanted by a company of Gandharvas, he [Hanumân] himself prays thus.

Coming to the location of Kimpurush Varsha, it is stated to be situated north of the Himalayas which could refer to the northern range of the mountains since Mansarovar Lake is also associated with it.

    @Rohit. Can you go and see Shiva on Kailash? In this kind of Holly place humans are forbidden. They can visit that place only after death. Coz it is divine rule that Human can't meet Lord with their body made by panch tatva until they don't do Tapas. Since Hanuman also a Lord now, worshiped by world so you can't see him. – Vishvam Aug 8 '17 at 14:54

    @Rohit. Stardom....? Well why not, After all they are real ultra mega super duper star of world. The things that they have done to the world, you can't do even in ur imagination, They live whole life for others. Always did help to the world. What you have done for this world except making baseless comments? – Vishvam Aug 8 '17 at 20:42

Lord Rama told Hanuman to stay on earth on his death time so that he can spread Rama's story and devotion in humans. And Hanuman is following that order of Rama till now. He is spreading Rama Naam in world in many unknown ways and in different forms. As we all know that He can take any form and by this ability of him he participate in devotion process in different form (not in his actual form) so that no one can recognize him. Hanuman's responsibilities on earth are to spread Devotion so that people can be aware of truth about world.

How he is performing his duties assign by Lord Rama to him?

Hanuman is one of the most intelligent Lord (gyaan gun sagar), so he has tons of ways to spread devotion without being noticed by anyone. He does all his work secretly.

Here is an example of his work that he is doing since Rama's death. This video will help you to know that Hanuman is still alive and living in Himalya.

  1. संकेत जो साबित करते हैं कि हनुमान जी आज भी जीवित है
  2. हनुमान के ज़िदा होने का सबसे बड़ा ये है सच
  • 'Hanuman is still alive and living in Himalayas' - why did Hanuman pick only Himalayas? Why not Ashoka garden in Lanka or Ayodhya or Kishkinda - the place he first met Rama? – Say No To Censorship Aug 7 '17 at 17:12
  • @sv. It's his personal choice, what we can say about it. May be he found Himalya as most peaceful place. – Vishvam Aug 8 '17 at 4:14

Hanuman is a son of Vayu. According to Valmiki Ramayana he lived in Kishkinda the capitol of the Apes which were called "Kimpurushas" in Srimad Bhagavatam 11.16.29 and are according to Mahabharata 1.66.8 offspring of Pulaha. Therefore Kimpurusha Varsha seems to be identical with Kishkinda which was located in a hole in the Himalayas. It is said that Hanuman would live as long as the story of Rama (the Ramayana) is told (Valmiki Ramayana 7, 50 + 121; Mahabharata 3.291.44 + 48 f.). According to Mahabharata 3.149.7 ff + 38 he has to change his shape in every yuga. According to Indonesian Ramayana The Uttarakanda 64 his existence will end with the end of our Kaliyuga (according to Rigveda 5.87.4b and Mahabharata 3.189.33 this will take place when the constellation Orion - identical with Vishnu - will arrive its upper point of return in the course of the precession which will be the case in short time).
