There is no mention of Hanuman made anywhere in Vedic literature. Anjani gave birth to Hanuman. After birth, thinking that the rising sun was a golden fruit He leapt into the sky for it.
Lord Sree Hanuman (Maruti) has intense desire to attain Sree Rama. This means attaining His grace. The same desire is present in every human's heart in the form of God-Realisation in a manifest or unmanifest form. The manifest intense desire is similar to Lord Sree Hanuman's (Maruti's) form.
Hanuman has two forms namely Maruti as the servitor and Maruti as the courageous one. The servitor form is the one in which Hanuman stands in front of Rama with His hands folded in obeisance.
