the swami you see in the picture was traveling through a city (ratlam, madhyapredesh, india) when he noticed a lot of commotion on a city street.
he stopped to see that lots of people were gathered around a black faced monkey. they were driving away and the monkey started chasing them.
swamiji asked the driver to slow down and looked out the window and said, “hanumanji, come to the ram katha today if you want.”
they did not tell him where it was or anything like that.
shortly after, they assembled somewhere for the katha and as they were doing the prayers, swamiji noticed that the same monkey was sitting in the back.
swamiji, again looked at him and said, “hanumanji” if you want to be part of the ceremony, come and sit up here on the stage, and the monkey got up and came up to the stage and sat with swamiji.
the rest of the story is described in the incredible video you see here.
the languor first went and sat near the singers and listened to the kirtan, held the mic of the Swami, got blessed by him, then “blessed” the Swamis and then sat in front of Sri Ramji’s photo and took some of the flowers (note similar position to Shri Hanumanji in the framed picture) and left quietly.
It is said believed that Hanumanji will come wherever Ramakatha is reading.
Bolo Siyavar Ramchandra ki Jai. Pavanasuta Hanuman ki Jai.
