Gods blessing Hanuman

After being hit by Vajra Hanuman became unconscious and this upset Vayu deva and he went into seclusion, taking the atmosphere with him. As living beings began to asphyxiate, Indra withdrew the effect of his thunderbolt (Vajra), and the devas revived Hanuman and blessed him with multiple boons. Image Courtesy:sanatansociety.com
