Secrets of the Hanuman Chalisa (Part 1)

The Hanuman Chalisa is a powerful technology to provide all-round benefits

A powerful technology for all-round benefits

The Hanuman Chalisa has benefited millions across generations through its mantra-shakti and ability to incite the deepest devotion in the most intensely troubled sadhak.

But do not think it to be limited to merely improving your state of mind! It is indeed an intensely powerful stotra (hymn) which can endow the saadhak (spiritual aspirant) with real power – physical, metaphysical and spiritual; and both for daily life and also for esoteric purposes.

A quick recap of the basics….

We have already covered the basic benefits of the Chalisa – building character and Ram Bhakti. You can read the prior articles on Hanuman by clicking here and here; they provide a quick refresher on his attributes and the general benefits of Hanuman worship.

…then onto the master class!

The Hanuman Chalisa is a hymn of 40 verses adoring Hanuman and his great achievements in the context of the epic Ramayana. Each verse is also known as a chaupai (4 legged) and consists of a rhyming couplet.

It is the essence of the Sundara Kand of the Ramayana. In fact this is one of the very reasons for its unbelievable power to help any devotee – the Sundara Kand is prescribed to anyone with a strong will to make something happen which is beyond their control – one prominent example is hastening marriage.

There are of course a much broader set of benefits to reading or listening to the Chalisa daily – here is a full list:

  1. Removes bad karma of unknowingly insulting or harming a Guru or fellow devotee
  2. Wisdom and strength
  3. Divine knowledge
  4. Remove bad habits and company
  5. Cultivates bhakti
  6. Protection from snakes and bites
  7. Fame
  8. Restores and improves career/social status
  9. Protection from malefic effect of planets
  10. Accomplish difficult tasks, break obstacles
  11. Rescue from crisis
  12. Fulfilment of desires
  13. Protection from Black Magic and spirits
  14. Health
  15. Ability to bear physical pain
  16. Victory over enemies
  17. Siddhis (occult powers)
  18. Wealth
  19. Mental peace
  20. Ethical judgement
  21. The Grace of Hanuman

This series will highlight which specific verses provide each of the benefits. within the Chalisa can be recited on their own as ‘mini-mantras’ to gain specific benefits.
