Lord Hanuman is known to be an earnest devotee of Lord Rama. He not only represents valour, but is also an epitome of devout. If there is anything we can learn from Him, it's the firmness of mind and confidence in bodily strength to face all the obstacles in life with courage.

Panchamukhi Hanuman is the form of Hanuman which represents five faces of the lord. There's an interesting story behind this. According to the legend, Lord Hanuman adopted the 5-faced avatar in order to rescue Lord Rama from Ahiravana – the lord of hell.

In order to rescue Lord Rama, Hanuman must extinguish the five lamps at a time in order to kill Ahiravana. So this made Lord Hanuman have five faces: Hanuman, Hayagriva, Narasimha, Garuda and Varaha

They signify:

Hanuman: Purity and success.

Narasimha: Courage.

Garuda: Dispenses poison.

Varaha: Wealth.

Hayagriya: Knowledge.
