2-Less Known Information About Hanumaan-2
Hanumaan's Education and Marriage
Hanuman stood facing the Sun and started walking backwards. Soorya was moving forward and was teaching Hanuman. Lord Shiv is said to know all and Hanumaan, who is Lord Shiv's incarnation, proved to be one who knows all as well. Within a week of his education, he astonished Soorya by his knowledge. Soorya praised Hanumaan. Hanumaan wanted to continue his education. Instead of walking backward, he put one foot on the rising hill and the other one on the setting hill to face the Sun god. Hanuman's interest and devotion pleased the Sun god. Soorya taught all that is to be taught to Hanumaan.
Birth of Suvarchalaa
Soorya remembered Brahmaa Jee's utterance. By than Hanuman's education was complete. He was ready to graduate. He bowed to Soorya and said - "O My Divine Teacher, Thanks to you I am educated now. I would like to take your leave now. I would like to offer you an appropriate fee as Guru Dakshinaa. Kindly order me." Soorya immediately replied - "O Hanumaan, you are the incarnation of Lord Shiv who bore the poisonous Halaahal (poison) to save the universe when the ocean was churned. You are also son of Agni, the fire god. Viswakarmaa separated a part of my luminescence and the world is unable to bear it. You are the only one who can bear it. So I want to offer you my daughter Suvarchalaa formed from my "Varchas" (luminescence), in marriage. Marry my daughter. Since husband is the one who is to bear, you also bear my "Suvarchas" by marrying Suvarchalaa. Your marrying her shall be my Guru Dakshinaa."
Hanuman listened to his teacher and replied politely - "O Lord, I have decided to follow Brahmacharya throughout my life. How can I marry?" Soorya replied - "O Hanumaan, this Suvarchalaa is a divine one, A-Yonijaa (who is not born normally from vagina). She would be a devoted wife to you. I am giving you the boon that you would still be a Brahmchaaree even after marriage. You would continue to be a Prajaapatya Brahmchaaree. Your marriage is only for the welfare of the Universe and it would not affect your chosen course of celibacy. You were a born Brahmchaaree with a Yagyopaveet (Sacred thread). Brahmacharya will be your eternal pursuit. Since you are going to be a Brahmaa in future, Suvarchalaa will then occupy the place of Vaanee (Saraswatee)."
Hanumaan obeyed his preceptor's advice. Soorya presented Suvarchalaa to Hanumaan. It is stated in Paraashar Sanhitaa, that Soorya offered his daughter Suvarchalaa in marriage on Jyeshth Shukla Dashamee. It was a Wednesday under the star Uttaraa.
