A group of us from Toronto Esoteric Group visited the Hanuman Park in Ooty last October 2022. The park is beautiful, situated on a small rising hill in the Nilgiri Hills. Statues of Hanuman are placed at various locations as you ascend up the hill. Unfortunately, many of the statues are broken, weather beaten, or very discoloured. We were very disheartened seeing the apparent neglect of the upkeep of the statues of Hanuman. We are Canadian, and spent 2 months in India, visiting the Shri Hanuman Mandir Jakoo in Shimla, and Hanuman Mandir in New Delhi. Having seen other beautiful statues of Hanuman that were in excellent condition, it really saddened us to see these 21 statues of Hanuman in such poor condition. When we were leaving the park, we felt a strong inspiration to find a way to get the Hanuman statues restored, so the Divine essence of Hanuman can properly be expressed through his Divine Rupa. Below is one of my paintings of Hanuman, an expression of my devotion and sadhana. We are serious students of the Sanatana Dharma, and have an understanding of the importance of the Divine form (rupa) of deity. Join us in this effort to raise funds to restore Hanuman Park back to its pristine beauty and Divine purpose.
