Hanumanji also goes by the titles Sankatmochan and Dukhbhanjan since it is thought that he helps and guided people in overcoming their difficulties and sorrows. Hanuman was born and brought up by Anjana, an Apsara who had been cursed.
According to mythology, she was freed from the curse after giving birth to Hanuman. It is believed that Anjana and her husband Kesari prayed to Rudra for a child, and under his guidance, Vayu transferred his male energy to Anjana's womb and that is why Hanuman is known as the son of Vayu.

It is when Lord Hanuman saw Mata Sita applying sindoor on her forehead, he asked her why she did it and she replied that it was for the long life of her husband. Then Lord Hanuman applied vermilion all over his body to ensure the immortality of Lord Rama.
