Hanuman, the monkey-god, is one of the central characters in the ancient Hindu Epic Ramayana, he is also mentioned in several other texts, such as the Mahabarata and the various Puranas. Hanuman is considered the ideal brahmachari, the one who follows the path of Brahma.
Hanuman is the quintessential yogi having a perfect mastery over his senses, achieved through a disciplined lifestyle tempered by  celibacy and selfless devotion, bhakti, to Lord Rama and Shri Sita. He performs his actions with detachment, acting as an instrument of destiny rather than being impelled by any selfish motive.
