Oxytocin: social bonding, sexual reproduction
Epiniphrine (adrenaline): "fight or flight", blood flow to muscles

Manoj will also be teaching about the Bhakti (devotion) of Hanuman to Ram and Sita and how we can realize the Self through Bhakti (a real, genuine search for Atma that begins, continues and ends in Love).
