1 Answer 1


स सर्वरुपः सर्वज्ञ सृष्टिस्थितिकरोऽवतु। स्वयं ब्रह्मा स्वयं विष्णु साक्षाद देवो महेश्वरः।।

(नारद पुराण पुर्व तृतीय पाद ७८. २४-२५)

हनुमान सभी रुपों में अभिव्यक्त हैं , वे सर्व ज्ञानी है तथा वे ही ब्रह्मा रुप में जगत के रचयिता, विष्णु रुप में संचालन तथा महादेव के रुप में संहार करते हैं।


Hanuman is manifested in all forms, he is all-knowing and he is the creator of the world in the form of Brahma, the operator in the form of Vishnu and the destroyer in the form of Mahadev.

  • Do you have link to this chapter in the Purana? Interested in the context as the shloka listed here doesn't mention Hanuman
