rama images

~Images of devotion hidden in the heart~
The hindu god Hanuman is often depicted tearing his chest open in a manner reminiscent of the christian “sacred heart”, to reveal the images of Rama and Sita within, that is the images of the divine male and feminine universal energies united. Hanuman this way is a symbol of total and perfect devotion leading to completion.
