🌺Hinduism regards all souls as equal & all beings as the manifestation of Supreme Brahman & that's why we see God in everyone of his creation.🌺

Presence of soul in animal bodies may pose some problems to them with regard to their chances of liberation, but it does not..

..alter their essential nature.Beings differ in their ability &intelligence bcoz of presence or absence of certain aspects of Nature, but the soul is same in all. They r manifestations of Supreme Brahman,they deserve to be treated well& allowed to evolve in their own natural way.
Compassion to animals is an important virtue for those who seek liberation or those who want to lead virtuous lives on the path of righteousness to cultivate divine qualities. Killing animals without reason has the same karmic consequence..
..as killing humans, since every living being upon earth has an opportunity to evolve into higher life forms and work for their salvation.

Although animals enjoy the same spiritual status as humans, they are not well qualified to achieve liberation, since they do not..
..possess the higher mind or discriminating intelligence to make intelligent choices. Hence, to achieve liberation they have to take birth as humans. In some extraordinary circumstances, due to past karmas or the grace of God, they may rarely achieve liberation.
Due to Karma only, sometimes human being has to take birth in an animal body to undergo penance. In the end part of each time cycle more animal souls are released into human bodies to give them a chance to achieve liberation or create chaos.
In Hindu spirituality and symbolism, animals represent both divine and demonic nature and different forms of universal energy. Animals also serve as vehicles to gods and goddesses and are worshipped in numerous temples as associate gods.
Legends from the Puranas suggest that highly evolved animals may express love and devotion to God and seek his help when they are in trouble. The story of Gajendra Moksha in which Shri Vishnu comes to the rescue of an elephant to save him from a crocodile is a good example..
..of how God may have a hidden connection with the animal world. Nandi, the vehicle of Shiva, and Sugriva and Hanuman Ji who are known for their devotion are good example. The ten incarnations of Shri Vishnu show how God does not discriminate between humans and animals.
If the situation demands, he chooses an animal body for his incarnation. It is no wonder that three out of nine of Shri Vishnu's incarnations are in animal form, while one was part human and part animal, Narasimha Ji.
According to Vedic legends, once Sri Visnu assumed the form of Hayagriva,with a horse head&rescued the Vedas from 2 demons, namely Madhu-Kaitabha.We also read in the Puranas that gods may often appear on earth in animal form to test the devotion,virtue or faith of devotees.

राम-रावण युद्ध समाप्त हो चुका था। जगत को त्रास देने वाला रावण अपने कुटुम्ब सहित नष्ट हो चुका था।श्रीराम का राज्याभिषेक हुआ और अयोध्या नरेश श्री राम के नेतृत्व में चारों दिशाओं में शन्ति थी।
अंगद को विदा करते समय राम रो पड़े थे ।हनुमान को विदा करने की शक्ति तो राम में थी ही नहीं ।

माता सीता भी हनुमान को पुत्रवत मानती थी। अत: हनुमान अयोध्या में ही रह गए ।राम दिनभर दरबार में, शासन व्यवस्था में व्यस्त रहते थे। संध्या को जब शासकीय कार्यों में छूट मिलती तो गुरु और माताओं का कुशल-मंगल पूछ अपने कक्ष में जाते थे। परंतु हनुमान जी हमेशा उनके पीछे-पीछे ही रहते थे ।

उनकी उपस्थिति में ही सारा परिवार बहुत देर तक जी भर बातें करता ।फिर भरत को ध्यान आया कि भैया-भाभी को भी एकांत मिलना चाहिए ।उर्मिला को देख भी उनके मन में हूक उठती थी कि इस पतिव्रता को भी अपने पति का सानिध्य चाहिए ।

एक दिन भरत ने हनुमान जी से कहा,"हे पवनपुत्र! सीता भाभी को राम भैया के साथ एकांत में रहने का भी अधिकार प्राप्त है ।क्या आपको उनके माथे पर सिन्दूर नहीं दिखता?इसलिए संध्या पश्चात आप राम भैया को कृप्या अकेला छोड़ दिया करें "।
ये सुनकर हनुमान आश्चर्यचकित रह गए और सीता माता के पास गए ।

माता से हनुमान ने पूछा,"माता आप अपने माथे पर सिन्दूर क्यों लगाती हैं।" यह सुनकर सीता माता बोलीं,"स्त्री अपने माथे पर सिन्दूर लगाती है तो उसके पति की आयु में वृद्धि होती है और वह स्वस्थ रहते हैं "। फिर हनुमान जी प्रभु राम के पास गए ।
