॥दोहा॥
श्रीगुरु चरन सरोज रज, निज मनु मुकुरु सुधारि।
बरनउँ रघुबर बिमल जसु, जो दायकु फल चारि।।
Doha
With the dust of guru’s lotus feet having,
I cleanse the mirror of my soul sparkling,
Raghuvar’s spotless glory I be singing,
The four fruits of life it ever is giving.

बुद्धिहीन तनु जानिके, सुमिरौ पवन-कुमार।
बल बुद्धि विद्या देहु मोहि, हरहु कलेस बिकार।।
I void of all the wisdom but realizing,
On the son of the wind am meditating,
Strength, wisdom, knowledge be his blessing,
Of the suffering and sin – may he be removing.

॥चौपाई॥
जय हनुमान ज्ञान गुन सागर। जय कपीस तिहुँ लोक उजागर।।
राम दूत अतुलित बल धामा। अंजनि-पुत्र पवनसुत नामा।।
Chaupai
Hail Hanuman! Ocean of knowledge and virtue be,
Hail God-Monkey enlightener of the Worlds truly,
Ram’s envoy having incomparable might you be,
Son of Anjani and called Pavansuta lovingly.

महाबीर बिक्रम बजरंगी। कुमति निवार सुमति के संगी।।
कंचन बरन बिराज सुबेसा। कानन कुंडल कुंचित केसा।।
Mighty, valiant, radiant as thunder-bolt you be,
Banisher of wickedness, befriender of wise surely,
Golden –hued, brilliant and bedecked charmingly,
Ear pendants sparkling and your head hair curly.

हाथ बज्र और ध्वजा बिराजै। काँधे मूँज जनेऊ साजै।।
संकर सुवन केसरीनंदन। तेज प्रताप महा जग बंदन।।
Your strong hands with thunderbolt and Ram’s flag be,
Across our shoulder holy `Janau’ ornamented surely,
O Shankara’s son – the delight of Kesari earnestly,
And world-wide is adored your greatness and glory.

बिद्यावान गुनी अति चातुर। राम काज करिबे को आतुर।।
प्रभु चरित्र सुनिबे को रसिया। राम लखन सीता मन बसिया।।
Learned, accomplished and wise exceedingly,
Relentlessly carrying out Ram’s work unerringly,
And Ram’s actions as a beloved you hear eagerly,
In your heart Ram, Laxman and Sita dwell certainly.

सूक्ष्म रुप धरि सियहि दिखावा। बिकट रुप धरि लंक जरावा।।
भीम रुप धरि असुर सँहारे। रामचन्द्र के काज सँवारे।।
Before Sita you appeared in a subtle form only,
But burnt Lanka in your awesome form clearly,
In your gigantic form you slew demons certainly,
And handled the work of Ram Chandra earnestly.

लाय संजीवन लखन जियाये। श्रीरघुबीर हरषि उर लाये।।
रघुपति कीन्ही बहुत बडाई। तुम मम प्रिय भरतहि सम भाई।।
You saved Laxman by getting `sanjivini’ swiftly,
Then Lord Ram clasped you to himself joyously,
And Raghupati praised you ever whole-heartedly,
“You as dear to me as my brother Bharat surely”.

सहस बदन तुम्हरो जस गावैं। अस कहि श्रीपति कंठ लगावैं।।
सनकादिक ब्रह्मादि मुनीसा। नारद सारद सहित अहीसा।।
`My entire body and self sings in praise your glory’,
So saying Sripath, Lord Vishnu, embraces fondly,
Sanaka and Brahma – and other sages so holy,
Along with Narad and Sharad do also sing your glory.

जम कुबेर दिगपाल जहाँ ते। कबि कोबिद कहि सके कहाँ ते।।
तुम उपकार सुग्रीवहिं कीन्हा। राम मिलाय राज पद दीन्हा।।
Yama, Kuber and Digpal but ever sing earnestly,
As poets and scholars in your praise eternally,
To Sugriva you rendered your service gracefully,
Bringing Ram to him – showing kingdom’s path totally.

तुम्हरो मंत्र बिभीषण माना। लंकेश्वर भए सब जग जाना।।
जुग सहस्त्र जोजन पर भानू। लील्यो ताहि मधुर फल जानू।।
Vidbhishan on heeding your advise humbly,
Became Lanka’s King, the world knows – finally,
From thousands of miles in childhood fantasy,
You swallowed the sun thinking it fruit juicy.

प्रभु मुद्रिका मेलि मुख माही। जलधि लाँघि गये अचरज नाहीं।।
दुर्गम काज जगत के जेते। सुगम अनुग्रह तुम्हरे तेते।।
With Lord Ram’s ring in your mouth totally,
You hopped across the Ocean – not surprisingly,
However difficult be all the tasks worldly,
By your favor be rendered possible easily.

राम दुआरे तुम रखवारे। होत न आज्ञा बिनु पैसारे।।
सब सुख लहै तुम्हारी सरना। तुम रच्छक काहु को डरना।।
You the guardian of Ram’s gate certainly,
Without your order none can enter clearly,
All bliss begot by surrender to you fully,
If you be the Savior fear is lost totally.

आपन तेज सम्हारो आपै। तीनो लोक हाँक ते काँपै।।
भूत पिसाच निकट नहि आवै। महाबीर जब नाम सुनावै।।
You but control your blazing splendor only,
The three worlds tremble with your roar surely,
Ghosts and goblins dare not come near fearfully,
When your name `Mahavir’ is sung repeatedly. 

नासै रोग हरै सब पीरा। जपत निरंतर हनुमत बीरा।।
संकट तें हनुमान छुडावैं। मन क्रम बचन ध्यान जो लावै।।
Illness destroyed and pain removed be,
Who repeat your name ever unceasingly,
Hanuman frees one from all the calamity,
Who on his thoughts, words, deeds meditating be.

सब पर राम तपस्वी राजा। तिन के काज सकल तुम साजा।।
और मनोरथ जो कोई लावै। सोइ अमित जीवन फल पावै।।
Though Ram the supreme ascetic lord be,
Yet Hanuman fulfils his work successfully,
Whoever craves for you will undoubtedly be,
Sipping life’s nectar through life contently.

चारो जुग परताप तुम्हारा। है परसिद्ध जगत उजियारा।।
साधु संत के तुम रखवारे। असुर निकंदन राम दुलारे।।
Through all four ages famed is your glory,
With all the fame you enlighten the world fully,
You the protector of saints and sages clearly,
Demons’ destroyer and Ram’s dear certainly.

अष्ट सिद्धि नौ निधि के दाता। अस बर दीन जानकी माता।।
राम रसायन तुम्हरे पासा। सदा रहो रघुपति के दासा।।
You of eight siddhis nine nidhis giver be,
As Mother Janki gave this boon happily,
You the store-house of Ram’s love surely,
Remaining Ram’s servant ever unceasingly.

तुम्हरे भजन राम को पावै। जनम जनम के दुख बिसरावै।।
अंत काल रघुबर पुर जाई। जहाँ जन्म हरि-भक्त कहाई।।
Ram enjoys your praise and hymns clearly,
Freeing the sadness of rebirths transmigratory,
In last days your worshipper – Ram achieves,
In birth – ever known as Hari’s devotee.

और देवता चित्त न धरई। हनुमत सेइ सर्ब सुख करई।।
संकट कटै मिटै सब पीरा। जो सुमिरै हनुमत बलबीरा।।
Those who don’t cherish any other God be,
By serving Hanuman still enjoy bliss fully,
Anyone repeating Hanuman’s name repeatedly,
Removes the sufferings and the calamities.

जै जै जै हनुमान गोसाई। कृपा करहु गुरुदेव की नाई।।
जो सत बार पाठ कर कोई। छूटहि बंदि महासुख होई।।
To Hanuman – All the Jai’s and glory,
Be gracious to me as my guru finally,
Those reciting these lines certainly be,
Bondage free – enjoying endless bliss only.

जो यह पढै हनुमान चालीसा। होय सिद्धि साखी गौरीसा।।
तुलसीदास सदा हरि चेरा। कीजै नाथ हृदय महँ डेरा।।
Those reciting the `Hanumanchalisa’ be,
Attaining perfection – Lord Shiv guarantees,
Tulsidas imploring Hanuman ever consistently,
To reside in his heart as in Ram Hanuman does be.

॥दोहा॥
पवनतनय संकट हरन, मंगल मूरति रुप।
राम लखन सीता सहित, हृदय बसहु सुर भूप।।
Doha 
Pavanputra’ – of all calamities you dispelling,
The very embodiment of all the blessings,
King of immortals, in my heart be dwelling,
With Ram, Laxman and Sita be ever residing.

संकट मोचन हनुमानाष्टक

मत्तगयन्द छन्द
बाल समय रबि भक्षि लियो तब तीनहुँ लोक भयो अँधियारो।
ताहि सों त्रास भयो जग को यह संकट काहु सों जात न टारो।
देवन आनि करी बिनती तब छाँड़ि दियो रबि कष्ट निवारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥१॥
When as a child you lapped the sun, darkness on the triple world fell,
The worlds thus got into trouble and a crisis that none could dispel,
The gods then prayed to you to spare the sun and you did so quell,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
बालि की त्रास कपीस बसै गिरि जात महाप्रभु पंथ निहारो।
चौंकि महा मुनि साप दियो तब चाहिय कौन बिचार बिचारो।
कै द्विज रूप लिवाय महाप्रभु सो तुम दास के सोक निवारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥२॥
Sugriv scared of Bali, sent you to the Great Lord and on hill dwelt,
Startled sage’s curse then – what advice he needed you did then tell,
Guised as brahmin, you fetched the Lord – relieved the devotee’s hell,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
अंगद के सँग लेन गये सिय खोज कपीस यह बैन उचारो।
जीवत ना बचिहौ हम सो जु बिना सुधि लाए इहाँ पगु धारो।
हेरि थके तट सिंधु सबै तब लाय सिया-सुधि प्रान उबारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥३॥
Alongwith Angad you searched for Sita as the ape king did declare,
“None be spared till you trace Sita – if you return or try herein to dwell!”
On seaside when all dispared, you found Sita and saved their life swell,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
रावन त्रास दई सिय को सब राक्षसि सों कहि सोक निवारो।
ताहि समय हनुमान महाप्रभु जाय महा रजनीचर मारो।
चाहत सीय असोक सों आगि सु दै प्रभु मुद्रिका सोक निवारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥४॥
When Ravan struck fear into Sita, ordering demonesses to sorrow sell,
Then great Hanuman – you reached and to the demons did death spell,
Sita under the Ashok tree sought fire, you gave Lord’s ring, woe quelled,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
बान लग्यो उर लछिमन के तब प्रान तजे सुत रावन मारो।
लै गृह बैद्य सुषेन समेत तबै गिरि द्रोन सु बीर उपारो।
आनि सजीवन हाथ दई तब लछिमन के तुम प्रान उबारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥५॥
When Ravan’s son arrow on Laxman’s chest had a very fatal flow delt,
You brought physician Sushen and the shrub on Drona where Laxman fell,
Arrived on time with Sanjivani helped save Lakshman’s life and get well,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
रावन जुद्ध अजान कियो तब नाग कि फाँस सबै सिर डारो।
श्रीरघुनाथ समेत सबै दल मोह भयो यह संकट भारो।
आनि खगेस तबै हनुमान जु बंधन काटि सुत्रास निवारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥६॥
When Ravan carried on the war and serpent noose over heads dispelled,
Raghunath and the whole corps were deluded as a hard blow he dealt,
Then came Garud, thanks to Hamuman, cutting bonds ending the impel,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
बंधु समेत जबै अहिरावन लै रघुनाथ पताल सिधारो।
देबिहिं पूजि भली बिधि सों बलि देउ सबै मिलि मंत्र बिचारो।
जाय सहाय भयो तब ही अहिरावन सैन्य समेत सँहारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥७॥
When Ahiravan abducted Raghunath with the younger brother to hell,
To propitiate the goddess ritually and offer sacrifice, He called in for help,
You assisted instantly and Ahiravan with his army laid low in fear dwelt,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
काज कियो बड़ देवन के तुम बीर महाप्रभु देखि बिचारो।
कौन सो संकट मोर गरीब को जो तुमसों नहिं जात है टारो।
बेगि हरो हनुमान महाप्रभु जो कुछ संकट होय हमारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥८॥
Great feats for gods you did, O Brave, Lord the Great, look and think well,
I know all types of crisis on poor me you can easily blow over and expel,
O Hanuman, the Great Lord, remove any danger towards me – do quell,
Who doesn’t know in the world your name `The Problem Solver’ bells?
दोहा
लाल देह लाली लसे अरू धरि लाल लँगूर।
बज्र देह दानव दलन जय जय जय कपि सूर॥
Body anointed with red vermilion, sporting as long-tailed red Simian nobel,
Thunder-bolt like body that crushes demons, hail Victor Kapi – all worry dispel.

Primer Of Hanuman

by Munindra Misra
Hanuman, the Hindu Monkey God, an avatar of Lord Shiv be,
Known as Anjaneya, Pavanputra, Anjaniputra and Bajrang Bali,
He is a symbol of physical strength, perseverance and sincereity,
Love, dedication and devotion also known as Hanumat and Maruti.

Sri Hanuman assisted to locate Sita – Sri Ram’s wife unfailingly,
Abducted by Ravan, the demon king of Lanka, unrepentantly,
He helps Sri Ram in his expedition against evil forces devotedly,
He is known for his ability to inspire and conquer obstacles fully.
-2-
Son of Anjani and Kesari, beloved of Wind God `Pavan’ truly,
His love and devotion for Sri Ram is unparrelled exceptionally,
With blind love and devotion and total sincerity with simplicity,
Saffron coloured as he bathed like Sita in Ram’s love childishly.

मनोजवं मारुततुल्यवेगं, जितेन्द्रियं बुद्धिमतां वरिष्थम्।

वातत्मजं वानरयुथमुख्यं, श्रीरामदुतं शरणं प्रपद्धे॥

I prostate to the Lord Hanuman, the son of wind God, reverently,

Foremost of the `vanaras’ or monkeys, and Lord Ram’s devotee.

अतुलितबलधामं हेमशैलाभदेहं, दनुजवनकृशानुं ज्ञानिनामग्रगण्यं।

I adore Hanuman, who is the abode of incomparable strength truly,

Whose body as a mountain of gold, who kills demons undoubtedly,

Who is the chief among the wise with unlimited intellect in infinity,

Crescent-shaped triple mark on your forehead adorable be,

On your head crown of gems, freeing devotees from anxiety,

O Kaartikeya’s brother – beloved son of Shiva and Gauri,

Attired in your beautiful yellow silken dress so elegantly,

Wearing wooden sandals studded with gems beautifully,

You are the source of the blessings of the world totally.

-5-

ॠद्धि सिद्धि तव चंवर सुढारहिं । मूषक वाहन सोहित द्वारहिं ॥

तव महिमा को बरनै पारा । जन्म चरित्र विचित्र तुम्हारा ॥

Over you wave royal chowries accomplishment and prosperity,

Your vehicle, the mouse, adds to your splendor and glory,

And the story of your life is so strange filled with mystery,

Who can describe your magnificence, which passes all stories?

-6-

एक असुर शिवरुप बनावै । गौरिहिं छलन हेतु तह आवै ॥

एहि कारण ते श्री शिव प्यारी । निज तन मैल मूर्ति रचि डारि ॥

A demon disguised as Shiva tried repeatedly,

To delude Gauri who in order to foil his folly,

Moulded you as her own son with all glory,

A divine form from the very scurf of her body.

-7-

सो निज सुत करि गृह रखवारे । द्धारपाल सम तेहिं बैठारे ॥

जबहिं स्वयं श्री शिव तहं आए । बिनु पहिचान जान नहिं पाए ॥

Gauri assigned you to guard her home – your duty,

Stationed you at the very entrance for her security,

When Shiv, her husband, approached unknowingly,

He being unrecognized was not allowed any entry.

-8-

पूछ्यो शिव हो किनके लाला । बोलत भे तुम वचन रसाला ॥

मैं हूं गौरी सुत सुनि लीजै । आगे पग न भवन हित दीजै ॥

Shiv asked, “Whose son are you?” softly,

And you even replied then so pleasantly,

“I am the son of Gauri do hear undoubtedly,

And do not step towards the house” firmly.

-9-

आवहिं मातु बूझि तब जाओ । बालक से जनि बात बढ़ाओ ॥

चलन चह्यो शिव बचन न मान्यो । तब ह्वै क्रुद्ध युद्ध तुम ठान्यो ॥

You asked Shiv to wait for your mother’s consent clearly,

Shiv avoiding to prolong talk with a child undoubtedly,

Attempted to enter – ignoring your words unmindfully,

And you then challenged him to war determinedly.

-10-

तत्क्षण नहिं कछु शंभु बिचारयो । गहि त्रिशूल भूल वश मारयो ॥

शिरिष फूल सम सिर कटि गयउ । छट उड़ि लोप गगन महं भयउ ॥

At that moment Shiv without thought plainly,

Hurled his trishul (Trident) hitting you squarely,

Severing your head from your body immediately,

Which soared into the sky and disappeared fully.

-11-

गयो शंभु जब भवन मंझारी । जहं बैठी गिरिराज कुमारी ॥

पूछे शिव निज मन मुसकाये । कहहु सती सुत कहं ते जाये ॥

And then Shiv entered the house unheedingly,

Wherein sat the daughter of Himalaya – Gauri,

Shiv inquired from her – within but smilingly,

“Hey Sati how you give birth to your son?” openly.

-12-

खुलिगे भेद कथा सुनि सारी । गिरी विकल गिरिराज दुलारी ॥

कियो न भल स्वामी अब जाओ । लाओ शीष जहां से पाओ ॥

The legend of your birth unfolded with her story,

And Gauri fell to the ground learning your tragedy,

“You did not do good – My Lord go sincerely,

Bring his head wherever you find it eventually.”

-13-

चल्यो विष्णु संग शिव विज्ञानी । मिल्यो न सो हस्तिहिं सिर आनी ॥

धड़ ऊपर स्थित कर दीन्ह्यो । प्राण वायु संचालन कीन्ह्यो ॥

Shiv accompanied by Vishnu searched hopefully,

Could not find your head – tried unsuccessfully,

Brought back a baby elephant’s head eventually,

Placed it on your body, gave you life and immortality.

-14-

श्री गणेश तब नाम धरायो । विद्या बुद्धि अमर वर पायो ॥

भे प्रभु प्रथम पूज्य सुखदायक । विघ्न विनाशक बुद्धि विधायक ॥

Then you were thus named Shri Ganesh appropriately,

Blessed with knowledge, wisdom and immortality,

Shiv pronounced – you will be worshipped first eternally,

Removing all obstacles, bring joy, intellect unmistakably.

-15-

प्रथमहिं नाम लेत तव जोई । जग कहं सकल काज सिध होई ॥

सुमिरहिं तुमहिं मिलहिं सुख नाना । बिनु तव कृपा न कहुं कल्याना ॥

Name of Shri Ganeshji if remembered initially,

Embarking on any mission concludes successfully,

Who meditate on you get happiness, peace and security,

Without your blessing there be no success finally.

-16-

तुम्हरहिं शाप भयो जग अंकित । भादौं चौथ चंद्र अकलंकित ॥

जबहिं परीक्षा शिव तुहिं लीन्हा । प्रदक्षिणा पृथ्वी कहि दीन्हा ॥

Your curse caused the universe to be effected wholly,

With earth’s reflection on moon on 4th day of Bhado truly,

When Shivji wanted to assess your intelligence justly,

He asked you to circumambulate the earth speedily.

राम नाम महि पर लिखि अंका । कीन्ह प्रदक्षिण तजि मन शंका ॥

You sat relaxed and took out a simple solution intelligently,

Writing Rama’s name on the ground meditating truthfully,

You went around the name written on the ground completely.

श्री पितु मातु चरण धरि लीन्ह्यो । ता कहं सात प्रदक्षिण कीन्ह्यो ॥

पृथ्वी परिक्रमा फल पायो । अस लखि सुरन सुमन बरसायो ॥

You with utmost devotion grasped your parent’s feet reverently,

And circumambulated them seven times affectionately,

Thus achieved blessings equal to the task given essentially,

Pleased were gods – showered flowers on you delightedly.

‘सुंदरदास’ राम के चेरा । दुर्वासा आश्रम धरि डेरा ॥

विरच्यो श्रीगणेश चालीसा । शिव पुराण वर्णित योगीशा ॥

Sundardaas while staying in Durvasa’s hermitage holy,

Being also a dedicated and sincere Rama’s devotee,

Composed this Sri Ganesh Chalisa ever so lovingly,

Just as the Rishi composed Shiva Purana – so aptly.

-20-

नित्य गजानन जो गुण गावत । गृह बसि सुमति परम सुख पावत ॥

जन धन धान्य सुवन सुखदायक । देहिं सकल शुभ श्री गणनायक ॥

The wise persons who hymn the glory of Ganesh daily,

Be blessed with intelligence and supreme bliss joyfully,

And Sri Ganesh ever blesses all his faithful devotees,

With wealth, happiness, auspicious objects and progeny.

श्री गणेश यह चालिसा,पाठ करै धरि ध्यान ।
