Hanuman Chalisa



Hanuman is considered the foremost devotee of Lord Rama. Whenever the story of Rama is narrated, Hanuman would be present.

Whoever recites the Hanuman Chalisa (40 stanzas in Hindi praising Hanuman), written by Tulsidas, for 40 mornings, will realise health, wealth, happiness, courage, valour and wisdom. Devotees reciting this chalisa 108 times will overcome all obstacles.

Whenever someone is in distress, if they recite the Hanuman Chalisa, they would be protected from all enemies.

Here is the Hanuman Chalisa sung by MS Subbulakshmi.

Thank you for a great reading,

I am very happy to Read the commentry on Hanuman Chalisa.

But, I would like to tell you abt a small error:
Prabhu Charittra Sunibe Ko Rasiya,
Ram Lakhan Sita man basyia

Here "Ram Lakhan Sita man basiya" means
"you have made your heart as the dwelling place of Rama, Lakshman and Sita"
and not that he is dwelling in their hearts
This has a story behind it,
After the Ravan Vadh, Rama and his parivar returns Ayodhya. He is made the king, in that festival, Seetha Maa gives a pearl garland-sort of thing as a token of appreciation to the son-like Hanuman. He breaks it, and removes each and every pearl and looks for some thing. When someone asks what his was doing, he replies, he is looking for Ram in that, as he like to see him everywhere, then to make fun of him that person asks whether Ram was inside him, then Hanuman tears his chest and shows Ram, Seetha and Lakshman . This is a story i heard from my elders.

Thanks for your patient reading
