Prasanna Anjaneya Swamy (Abhaya Anjaneya Swamy, Karyasiddhi Hanuman) is the first incarnation of Hanuman’s Navavatara (9 forms).
This incarnation has hands, one showing the Abhaya Mudra, the gesture of raised palm as protection, while the second hand is holding the mace down on earth. His face is very peaceful. His tail is generally upwards, sometimes down. He is showing his blessing hand to the devotees to get rid of their problems and to fulfil their desires.
If this form of Hanuman has clasped hands, then that form is called as Dasa Anjaneya, Bhakta Anjaneya and Prapati Anjaneya Swamy (Pabbathi Anjaneya Swamy). Prapati means devotion.
‘Prasanna Hanuman’ was worshipped by Vijaya, a Kshatriya King, who ruled a kingdom to get rid of bondings. Hanuman blessed him in the form Prasanna Anjaneya Swamy and got him out of his materialistic pleasures. Parashara Samhita’s 15th Chapter ‘Vijaya Charitham’ explains this story.
