Hanuman is the Monkey God that symbolizes powerful energy and incredible strength. Hanuman mantra chanting is a powerful tool you can use to gain physical strength, stamina, and devotion. In addition, the Hanuman mantra helps to get rid of the negative influence of Saturn and Mars on your life, thus, saving you from serious problems and troubles, and removes obstacles in your way.
Hanuman – the Personification of the Subordinate Mind
In Hindu symbolism, a monkey represents the human mind, which is constantly in anxiety. Our mind is exactly what we have to achieve total control over. We cannot control the world around us, but we can control our mind. The very important thing we should always remember is that we should accept what we cannot change and wisely and consciously choose our reactions to any events in our life.
According to the Hindu point of view, there is no objective world; the whole manifested world is a subjective phenomenon created by our own self. We, as humans, have the unique ability to control our mind. In other words, we are able to change the way we perceive life. By changing our perceptions of life, we have the power to change the world we live in, the reality we choose for ourselves.
Hanuman mantra practice helps us to gain control of the mind and turn the victim (that we used to be) into a hero (that who we really are inside).
He is a symbol of the perfect mind, embodying the high potential of great opportunities.
The Story of Hanuman Birth
Hanuman was born to Anjana and Kesari. He is also called the son of the deity Vayu (Wind God) due to the legends associated with Vayu’s role in Hanuman’s birth.
When Anjana was worshiping Shiva, the King Dasharatha of Ayodhya was also performing the ritual of Putrakama yagna in order to have children. As a result, he received some sacred pudding (payasam) to be shared by his three wives which led to the births of Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata, and Shatrughna. By divine ordinance, a kite snatched a fragment of that pudding and dropped it while flying over the forest where Anjana was engaged in worship. Vayu (Wind God) delivered the falling pudding to the outstretched hands of Anjana, who consumed it. Hanuman was born to her as a result.
According to Vedic legends, Hanuman was born in the Kingdom of Kishkindha.
Hanuman – One of the Main Characters of the Epic Poem “Ramayana”
Hanuman came to earth at the same time as Rama, the great ruler of the Solar Dynasty, who ruled for 11,000 years. The time of his reign is referred to as “Rama Rajya” – the Golden age. He strengthened the foundations of Dharma on Earth. During that time, righteousness, virtue, and piety among our planet were the norm. His reign was not tainted by suffering, grief, humiliation, and injustice. Each person was the personification of the brightest qualities. No one thought anything bad. There was absolute compliance with the principles of “Yama and Niyama” known to us as quite difficult to fulfill in our period of Kali-Yuga.
Ramayana tells us about a highly developed civilization that once existed on our planet. Rama was incarnated on Earth in order to become a model of ideal behavior for his people, to show by his example what qualities everyone should have. He came to Earth in order to relieve people from suffering and to give happiness, for he who has power, bears great responsibility for his people.
Also, Rama’s mission was to highlight to humanity in the example of the demon Ravana – his antipode – all the vices that he possessed, whether lust, anger, or greed, and show all their meaninglessness and decay, as well as what they lead to. Ravana was to become the personification of those qualities that Rama’s Light had to destroy. The confrontation of Rama and Ravana led to the victory of the forces of Light, which is the evidence of the inevitable outcome of the eternal struggle between good and evil.
Many Gods also were embodied in this time on Earth. Hanuman was one of them.
The Hanuman Yantra is a sacred geometric structure, the conductor of cosmic energy, harmonizing space and giving the concentration on certain qualities, as well as transforming the energy of low vibrations, raising it to the higher level.
When focusing on the center of the Hanuman yantra during your Hanuman mantra chanting it provides protection from adversity, gives strength and courage to overcome difficulties, gives bravery, provides confidence and removes self-doubt.
Place the Hanuman yantra on your altar in such a way that it’s facing the North or East. This Yantra will be powerful protection for your house!
Some important rules:
- do not allow anyone to touch the Hanuman Yantra;
- do not allow it to get dusty;
- keep the place where the Hanuman Yantra is located very clean;
- as well as the place where it stands, should always be kept clean, as it will be charged with energy emitted by amber;
- every time you meditate on mantra you should chant Hanuman mantra.
Hanuman Chalisa is a poem praising Hanuman. It was written by the Indian medieval poet, sage and philosopher Goswami Tulsidas.
It is believed that anyone who sings Hanuman Chalisa 100 times daily with sincerity gets freedom from the shackles of the material world and reach the highest realms of the spiritual Kingdom. Those who chant the Hanuman Chalisa 40 times daily will get freedom from all financial and other material difficulties.

Keejai Nath Hridaye mein dera
Pavan Tanay Sankat Harana
Mangala Murati Roop
Ram Lakhana Sita Sahita
Hriday Basahu Soor Bhoop
Hanuman Chalisa Translation:
After cleansing the mirror of my mind with the pollen dust of holy Guru’s Lotus feet. I Profess the pure, untainted glory of Shri Raghuvar which bestows the four-fold fruits of life.(Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha).
Fully aware of the deficiency of my intelligence, I concentrate my attention on Pavan Kumar and humbly ask for strength, intelligence, and true knowledge to relieve me of all blemishes, causing pain.
Victory to thee, O’Hanuman! Ocean of Wisdom – All hail to you O’Kapisa! (fountain-head of power, wisdom, and Shiva-Shakti). You illuminate all the three worlds (Entire cosmos) with your glory.
You are the divine messenger of Shri Ram. The repository of immeasurable strength, though known only as Son of Pavan (Wind), born of Anjani.
With Limbs as sturdy as Vajra (The mace of God Indra) you are valiant and brave. On you attends good Sense and Wisdom. You dispel the darkness of evil thoughts.
Your physique is beautiful golden colored and your dress is pretty. You wear earrings and have long curly hair.
You carry in your hand a lightening bolt along with a victory flag and wear the sacred thread on your shoulder.
As a descendant of Lord Sankar, you are a comfort and pride of Shri Kesari. With the luster of your Vast Sway, you are propitiated all over the universe.
You are the repository of learning, virtuous and fully accomplished, always keen to carry out the behests of Shri Ram.
You are an ardent listener, always so keen to listen to the narration of Shri Ram’s Life Stories. Your heart is filled with what Shri Ram stood for. You therefore always dwell in the hearts of Shri Ram, Lakshman, and Sita.
You appeared before Sita in a Diminutive form and spoke to her in humility. You assumed an awesome form and struck terror by setting Lanka on fire.
With over-whelming might, you destroyed the Asuras (demons) and performed all tasks assigned to you by Shri Ram with great skill.
You brought Sanjivan (A herb that revives life) and restored Lakshman back to life, Shri Raghuvir (Shri Ram) cheerfully embraced you with his heart full of joy.
Shri Raghupati (Shri Ram) lustily extolled your excellence and said: “You are as dear to me as my own brother Bharat.”
Thousands of living beings are chanting hymns of your glories; saying thus, Shri Ram warmly hugged him (Shri Hanuman).
When prophets like Sanka, even the Sage like Lord Brahma, the great hermit Narad himself, Goddess Saraswati and Ahisha (one of the immeasurable dimensions).
Even Yamraj (God of Death) Kuber (God of Wealth) and the Digpals (deputies guarding the four corners of the Universe) have been vying with one another in offering homage to your glories. How then, can a mere poet give adequate expression of your super excellence.
You rendered a great service to Sugriv. You united him with Shri Ram and he installed him on the Royal Throne. By heeding your advice, Vibhishan became Lord of Lanka. This is known all over the Universe.
On your own you dashed upon the Sun, which is at a fabulous distance of thousands of miles, thinking it to be a sweet luscious fruit.
Carrying the Lord’s Signet Ring in your mouth, there is hardly any wonder that you easily leaped across the ocean.
The burden of all difficult tasks of the world become light with your kind grace.
You are the sentry at the door of Shri Ram’s Divine Abode. No one can enter it without your permission,
All comforts of the world lie at your feet. The devotees enjoy all divine pleasures and feel fearless under your benign Protection.
You alone are befitted to carry your own splendid valor. All the three worlds (entire universe) tremor at your thunderous call.
All the ghosts, demons and evil forces keep away, with the sheer mention of your great name, Oh Mahaveer!!
All diseases, pain, and suffering disappear on reciting regularly Shri Hanuman’s holy name.
Those who remember Shri Hanuman in thought, words and deeds with Sincerity and Faith, are rescued from all crises in life.
All who hail, worship and have faith in Shri Ram as the Supreme Lord and the king of penance. You make all their difficult tasks very easy.
Whosoever comes to you for the fulfillment of any desire with faith and sincerity, Will he alone secure the imperishable fruit of human life.
All through the four ages, your magnificent glory is acclaimed far and wide. Your fame is Radiantly acclaimed all over the Cosmos.
You are Saviour and the guardian angel of Saints and Sages and destroy all Demons. You are the angelic darling of Shri Ram.
You can grant to anyone, any yogic power of Eight Siddhis (power to become light and heavy at will) and Nine Nidhis (Riches, comfort, power, prestige, fame, sweet relationship, etc.). This boon has been conferred upon you by Mother Janki.
You possess the power of devotion to Shri Ram. In all rebirths, you will always remain Shri Raghupati’s most dedicated disciple.
Through hymns sung in devotion to you, one can find Shri Ram and become free from sufferings of several births.
If at the time of death one enters the Divine Abode of Shri Ram, thereafter in all future births he is born as the Lord’s devotee.
One need not entertain any other deity for Propitiation, as a devotion of Shri Hanuman alone can give all happiness.
One is freed from all the sufferings and ill fated contingencies of rebirths in the world. One who adores and remembers Shri Hanuman.
Hail, Hail, Hail, Shri Hanuman, Lord of senses. Let your victory over the evil be firm and final. Bless me in the capacity as my supreme guru (teacher).
One who recites Chalisa one hundred times becomes free from the bondage of life and death and enjoys the highest bliss at last.
All those who recite Hanuman Chalisa (The forty Chaupais) regularly are sure to be benedicted. Such is the evidence of no less a witness as Bhagwan Sankar.
Tulsidas as a humble devotee of the Divine Master stays perpetually at his feet, he prays “Oh Lord! You enshrine within my heart and soul.”
Oh! conqueror of the Wind, Destroyer of all miseries, you are a symbol of Auspiciousness. Along with Shri Ram, Lakshman and Sita, reside in my heart. Oh! King of Gods.
