Analysis of Hanuman Chalisa (श्री हनुमान चालीसा) in English

Hanuman Chalisa is the only Devine song that help clean our human spirit, removes the suffering and shortcomings. The lord Hanuman to hold the supreme power among the breed of monkey. The lord Hanuman identified by three main things one who is unbeatable lover of lord Rama. Second, the hub of unknown Devine power, and son of Anjali. Furthermore, known as the son of wind. The great Hanuman is not less than a hero who is unconquerable and mighty one who take away evil power. However, always found within the heart of good people. Hanumant, you look the same as other beautiful monkey, but the only difference is you have earrings, curly think hair. Mace in your hand and flag of equality brings the brightness in life. You are embodiments Lord Shiva and son of Kesari. Your glory only fit into the sky (endless Sky) and the entire universe worships you.

The three things occupied in the hearts of Hanuman that obey only to three gods, Ram, Mother Sita and Laxman. Therefore, they live in your heart forever. Metaphoric you are, you appeared in front of Mata Sita in elusive form, burnt the Lanka (the kingdom of Raavan). You are a giant form like Bhima (one of the five pandavas) extinguished demons as per the given task by Lord Rama. The magnifying look of your save Laxman. You were the one who brought the entire hill of magical herb. As well as, Ram said that you are my dear brother like Bharat and appreciated you.

Thus, Lord Rama embraced Hanuman. Brahma, Saraswati and the king of serpents sings your glory. Your glory is difficult to express not even by poet, Kubera and other scholars. Your saying is prime, Vibhishan became king complying them. You the one dared to swallow the sun thinking it a red fruit. You crossed the ocean thus all the difficult task of Rama became  easy. Furthermore, you are guardian for someone to reach Ram. It is possible with your blessing, at your feet lay only comfort and happiness. However, one who lives besides you don't need to scared of anything.

Only you withstand yourself. Your roar trembles the three world (Swarga, Akash & Patal). The black magic would never touch to one who takes your name. All the deceases, pains gets lost when one chant your name. However, chanting your name brings brightness in our life. Meditating with your name one get free from any kinds of crisis. The greatest king of the king was lord Rama. But it is true that without you, it couldn't have had possible.

One who comes to you with sincerity obtains only fruit of love, undying throughout the entire life. All the four yug (krita, Trita, Dvapara & Kali) know you and your strength. As well as your popular glory throughout the world. You are a guardian to man feature kindness and destroyer of demons. You are a blessed child of Janaki. Hanuman can only grant the Siddhi (eight different power) and Nidhis (nine different kinds of wealth) you are always humble and devoted servant. When someone praises you, he gets to meet Ram, resulted in relief from the sorrow. And after the death one remains immortal devoted.

If you serve the lord Hanumant, it gives you all you need, no need worship of other God. The troubles, traps soon to end the pain. One who read Hanuman Chalisa he becomes accomplished in any of his work. Lord Shiva is witness to it. Therefore, at the end of this holy prayer, the poet Tulsidas said that he always remain a servant, a devotee to lord Shri Ram and you may always reside in my heart.

पवन तनय संकट हरन, मंगल मूरति रूप।
राम लखन सीता सहित, हृदय बसहु सुर भूप।।

Hanuman Chalisa in English

Jai Hanuman gyan gun sagar
Jai Kapis tihun lok ujagar
Ram doot atulit bal dhama
Anjaani putra Pavan sut nama
Mahabir Bikram Bajrangi
Kumati nivar sumati ke sangi
Kanchan varan viraj subesa
Kanan kundal kunchit kesa
Hath vajra aur dhvaja viraje
Kaandhe moonj janeyu saje
Shankar suvan kesri nandan
Tej pratap maha jag vandan
Vidyavan guni ati chatur
Ram kaj karibe ko aatur
Prabu charitra sunibe ko rasiya
Ram Lakhan Sita man basiya
Sukshma roop dhari siyahi dikhava
Vikat roop dhari lank jarava
Bhima roop dhari asur sanghare
Ramachandra ke kaj sanvare
Laye Sanjivan Lakhan jiyaye
Shri Raghuvir harashi ur laye
Raghupati kinhi bahut badai
Tum mam priye Bharat hi sam bhai
Sahas badan tumharo yash gaave
Asa kahi Shripati kanth lagaave
Sankadhik Brahmadi Muneesa
Narad Saarad sahit Aheesa
Yam Kuber Digpaal jahan te
Kavi Kovid kahi sake kahan te
Tum upkar Sugreevahin keenha
Ram milaye rajpad deenha
Tumharo mantra Vibheeshan maana
Lankeshwar bhaye sab jag jana
Yug sahastra jojan par Bhanu
Leelyo tahi madhur phal janu
Prabhu mudrika meli mukh mahee
Jaladhi langhi gaye achraj nahee
Durgam kaj jagath ke jete
Sugam anugraha tumhre tete
Ram dwaare tum rakhvare
Hoat na agya binu paisare
Sub sukh lahae tumhari sar na
Tum rakshak kahu ko dar naa
Aapan tej samharo aapai
Teenhon lok hank te kanpai
Bhoot pisaach nikat nahin aavai
Mahavir jab naam sunave
Nase rog harae sab peera
Japat nirantar Hanumant beera
Sankat te Hanuman chudavae
Man kram vachan dhyan jo lavai
Sab par Ram tapasvee raja
Tin ke kaj sakal Tum saja
Aur manorath jo koi lavai
Soi amit jeevan phal pavai
Charon jug partap tumhara
Hai persidh jagat ujiyara
Sadhu Sant ke tum rakhware
Asur nikandan Ram dulhare
Ashta sidhi nav nidhi ke dhata
As var deen Janki mata
Ram rasayan tumhare pasa
Sada raho Raghupati ke dasa
Tumhare bhajan Ram ko pavai
Janam janam ke dukh bisraavai
Anth kaal Raghuvir pur jayee
Jahan janam Hari Bakht Kahayee
Aur Devta chit na dharahi
Hanumanth sehi sarve sukh karehi

Jo sumirai Hanumat balbeera
Jai Jai Jai Hanuman Gosayin
Kripa karahu Gurudev ki nyahin
Jo sat bar path kare kohi
Chutahi bandhi maha sukh hohi
Jo yah padhe Hanuman Chalisa
Hoye siddhi sakhi Gaurisa
Tulsidas sada hari chera
Keejai nath hridaye mein dera
Pavan tanay sankat harana, Mangal moorati roop I
Ram Lakhan Sita sahit, Hridaya basahu sur bhoop II
