True. Human did marry Suvarchala Devi. At the same time he is also considered as Brahmachari as he did not have any marital relationship with her. Sage Parashar had written a biography on Hanuman. In that he has mentioned that Hanuman approached Surya Devatha for learning the grammar. Surya told him this subject can be taught only to a married person. So in order to enable Hanuman to learn the grammer from Surya Dev a maiden was created using sun's rays and she was named Suvarchala and a marriage ceremony was conducted between Hanuman and Suvarchala to make Hanuman a married man so that he could learn the grammar from the sun god.

Yes very true.

The boons granted by the gods made Hanuman invincible. The monkey child became uncontrollable. He became very mischievous. His pranks irritated many. He did not spare the sages even. He would pounce on them and tear their dress. He would throw fruit and leaves, perched atop trees. They bore with him patiently being aware of his future. One day a sage was very much disturbed by Hanumantha. The sage went into a rage and cursed Hanumantha: May you forget your strength with which you have caused us so much of pain. The curse changed the life of Hanuman altogether. He became very calm and inert. The change pained the sages. They altered the curse on him. They blessed him thus: If any one reminds you of your strength, you would recognize your strength and abilities and succeed.

This boon chastened Hanumantha. He became a well-behaved child and an epitome of virtuousness.

Hanuman was growing older. His mother told him: Son! It is time to get educated. There is no bett ...more

HANUMAN Is "A" PRAJAPATYA BRAHMACHARI THE CREATION HAS EVER WITNESSED.
HANUMAN IS THE GREATEST BRAHMACHARI THE CREATION HAS EVER WITNESSED.

HANUMAN DID NOT PRACTICE CELIBACY ,HE IS CELIBACY ITSELF.HE IS THE EMBODIMENT OF PURITY , CELIBACY AND BRAHMACHARYA .
THERE IS NO BRAHMACHARI LIKE HANUMAN AND THERE WILL BE NO BRAHMACHARI LIKE HANUMAN.

A PERSON CAN BE CALLED AS BRAHMACHARYA WHEN HE BECOMES A BRAHMACHARI,THE WORD BRAHMACHARI SIGNIFIES HOW A PERSON IS OR WHAT KIND OF LIVE THE PERSON LIVES TO BE CALLED AS A BRAHMACHARI.

THE WORD BRAHMACHARI IS VERY SMALL FOR HANUMAN, FOR WHAT HANUMAN IS WORDS CANNOT EXPLAIN
FOR HANUMAN ITS NOT ABOUT BEING A BRAHMACHARI OR A MARRIED MAN. ...more

For the purpose of pooja whether in a temple or at home it is impertive to include the sakthi aspect ( usually depicted in female form) along with the moola virat. ( when god is worshipped in female form automatically both the purasha and sakthi are assumed in one ( a sort of ardhanareeswara tattwa), hence when hanuman ( an askhalitha brahmachaari) is worshipped we say suvarchala sametha hanumaan . similarly lord datta is worshipped as anaghadevi sametha sri datta etc. here both suvarchala ( stree aspect of sundara) and anagha ( purity) are the sakti aspects of the respective god heads
