Selected verses from Hanuman Chalisa by Krishna Das

Shree Guru charana saroja raja nija manu mukuru sudhari
Taking the dust of my Guru’s lotus feet to polish the mirror of my heart

Baranaun Raghubara bimala jasu jo daayaku phala chaari
I sing the pure fame of the best of Raghus, which bestows the four fruits of life.

Buddhi heena tanu jaanike sumiraun pawana kumaara
I don’t know anything, so I remember you, Son of the Wind

Bala budhi vidyaa dehu mohin harahu kalesa bikaara
Grant me strength, intelligence and wisdom and remove my impurities and sorrows

1. Jaya Hanumaan gyaana guna saagara,
Jaya Kapeesha tihun loka ujaagara
Hail Hanuman, ocean of wisdom/
Hail Monkey Lord! You light up the three worlds.

2. Raama doota atulita bala dhaamaa,
Anjani putra Pawanasuta naamaa
You are Ram’s messenger, the abode of matchless power/
Anjani’s son, “Son of the Wind.”

3. Mahaabeera bikrama bajarangee,
Kumati niwaara sumati ke sangee
Great hero, you are a mighty thunderbolt/
Remover of evil thoughts and companion of the good.

4. Kanchana barana biraaja subesaa,
Kaanana kundala kunchita kesaa
Golden hued and splendidly adorned/
with heavy earrings and curly locks

37. Jai jai jai Hanumaana Gosaaee,
kripaa karahu gurudeva kee naaee
Victory, Victory, Victory Lord Hanuman/
bestow your grace on me, as my Guru!

38. Jo sata baara paata kara koee,
chootahi bandi mahaa sukha hoee
Whoever recites this a hundred times/
is released from bondage and gains bliss.

39. Jo yaha parai Hanumaana chaaleesaa,
hoya siddhi saakhee Gaureesaa
One who reads this Hanuman Chaleesa/
gains success, as Gauri’s Lord(Shiva) is witness.

40. Tulasee Daasa sadaa Hari cheraa,
keejai naata hridaya mahaan deraa
Says Tulsi Das, who always remains Hari’s servant’/
“Lord, make your home in my heart.”

Shree Raama Jai Raama, Jai Jai Raama

Sita Raama, Sita Raama, Sita Raama, Sita Raama
