Hanuman Chalisa is a poetic work written in Awadhi which describes the qualities and actions of Lord Rama’s (the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu), great devotee Hanuman Ji in forty verses. This is a very small work in which beautiful praise has been given to Pawanaputra Shri Hanuman Ji. In this, not only is there the sentimental prayer of Bajrang Bali, but Shri Ram’s personality is also engraved in simple words. ‘Chalisa’ means ‘forty’ (40). There are 40 verses in this devotional hymn (excluding the Dohe (couplets) of introduction and end).
Hanuman Chalisa’s author is Goswami Tulsidas Ji, a saint-poet, reformer, and philosopher of the 16th century and renowned for his devotion to Shri Rama. Tulsidas Ji was considered in his lifetime to be a reincarnation of Sage Valmiki, the composer of the original Ramayan in Sanskrit. The Chalisa reflects his knowledge and devotion to Rama. Tulsidas starts the hymn with the praising of the Guru (teacher) and mentions his name in the last verse of the Hanuman Chalisa. The 39th verse of the Hanuman Chalisa says that one who will cant Hanuman Chalisa with total devotion will obtain Siddhi (accomplishment or liberation) by Hanuman’s grace. It is a prevalent belief among Hindus that chanting the Hanuman Chalisa invokes Hanuman’s divine intervention in grave problems.
Hindus consider Hanuman Ji as an icon of bravery, courage, and devotion. Hanuman Ji is also called by the names Bajrangbali, Pawanaputra, Marutinandan, KesariNandan, Mahavir, etc. It is believed that Hanuman Ji is one of seven immortals as per Sanatan Dharm. By remembering Hanuman Ji every day and chanting Hanuman Chalisa, all the fears of a human being are removed. It is said that the recitation of Hanuman Chalisa removes fear, eradicates distress. Hanuman Chalisa awakens devotion along with superior knowledge in mind.
