Some people claim to have seen His footprints at various places in
India. They not only worship these footprints, but also set up temples
Lord Rama himself commanded his ardent devotee to remain on earth,
even while he gave up his own mortal form. Obeying his command, Lord
Hanuman began to reside in the jungles.
While he was resident in Sri Lanka’s jungles on Piduruthalagala
(tallest mountain), some tribals came forward to serve Lord Hanuman.
Pleased with their devotion, he gave them a special mantra, which
would make him visible to them. He further assured them that he would
return every 41 years, in order to deliver Atman Gnan to future
generations. The tribals still live in the same place, performing
Charan Puja to invite the Monkey God during the specified time. The
headman even maintains a logbook to record every word uttered by Lord
Hanuman during his visits.
The mantra is available to all, but comes with two conditions
attached. While chanting Kaaltantu Kaarecharanti Enar Marishnu,
Nirmukter Kaaletwam Amarishnu ((कालतंतु कारेचरन्ति एनर मरिष्णु,
निर्मुक्तेर कालेत्वम अमरिष्णु) repeatedly, the chanter should feel a
soul connection with Lord Hanuman. This is possible through
contemplation and meditation. They should follow the chanting.
Secondly, no other human being, who does not feel this connection, may
stay within the vicinity, when the chanter is going through this
exercise. The distance between the chanter and the onlooker, should be
Strictly according to the Vedas, the fountain-head of Hinduism – there are three entities which are beginningless and immortal – Purusha, Prakriti and Parameshwara – that, kind of, takes care of the immortal aspect of Hanumana. Now, even our (mine and yours) atmas (meaning – self) do not technically die! They are immortal and just changes bodies – as we reject old clothes! This is what the Geeta teaches us! Hence, whether it is separately mentioned – or not – Hanumana, too has a ‘self’ that cannot be destroyed!
Life without air .
Hanuman’s enraged father decided to go on a strike until the one who hurt his child was punished. Imagine if there is no wind on earth! How would it be? No gentle cooling breeze when the sun blazes down. No power to move the rain-bearing clouds. Why, after a point, both humans and animals couldn’t breathe. Vayu’s strike made life on earth difficult.
The gods knew they had to placate Vayu. So, they offered the baby a multitude of boons. Brahma said that no weapon would ever hurt Hanuman and that he would be able to change his form at will and travel wherever he chose. Indra’s boon was that the Vajra would no longer hurt the child and that his body would be stronger than the weapon. Varuna, the god of the ocean, offered him protection from water.
Agni, the god of fire, blessed him with immunity to fire. Surya, the sun god, gave him the power to change the size of his body. Yama blessed him with good health and immortality. Vishwakarma, the divine architect, offered a boon that Hanuman would be safe from all objects of his creation.
With all these boons, Hanuman became a great warrior who played a crucial role in the Ramayan. But that story is for another time.
“Whoever studies this Hanuman Chaleesa will attain success in whatever project he undertakes. He will attain the highest perfection. May Lord Shiva be the witness to my statement.” Thus says Saint Tulsidas.
Not a single recitation of the Hanuman Chaleesa goes in vain. A devotee continues to be enriched spiritually until he becomes free of the bondage of the world-process and attains the supreme bliss of Liberation. This is the firm declaration made by Saint Tulsidas in the name of Lord Shiva.
Whoever recites this Hanuman Chaleesa (the forty verses in praise of Lord Hanuman) a hundred times, becomes free of all types of bondage and enjoys supreme Bliss.
Since the Hanuman Chaleesa has been recited by countless devotees from ancient times, it has gained immense mantra-related potency. Recitation of a mantra can be done in three ways: vaikhari (verbal), upanshu (semi-verbal or whispering), and mahasik (mental). As devotional feeling deepens, the japa becomes increasingly mental. Reciting “a hundred times” simply implies sustained practice of japa until the goal is reached.
Glory, glory to Lord Hanuman! Shower Your Grace on me, even like a compassionate Guru.
Divine Grace appears in four forms: Ishwar Kripa (Grace of God), Guru Kripa (Grace of Guru), Shastra Kripa (Grace of scriptures) and Atma-Kripa(Grace of one’s own self). By adoring Hanuman (Divine faith) an aspirant becomes the recipient of all the four forms of Grace.
All the troubles of life terminate and all sufferings cease for one
whose mind dwells on Lord Hanuman constantly.
By letting the mind dwell on Lord Hanuman—by repeating the Mantra, “Om
Sri Hanumate Namah!” (or any Ishta Mantra), blended with divine
feeling and the act of surrender, all adversities are overcome, all
miseries come to an end. This is the goal of Hanuman-smaran, constant
remembrance of Lord Hanuman, Who is the boundless source of spiritual
Without being distracted by many gods, one who worships Hanuman with a
one-pointed mind attains all the happiness (of here and hereafter).
An aspirant must worship his Ishta Devata with the help of his Ishta
mantra(Rama) with the insight that all Gods and Goddesses are
different aspects of Rama (THE God). As long as the mind is restricted
by desires (sakamya), it cannot grasp the Non-duality of the Self. An
aspirant who lacks purity of heart turns to God for transient
attainments. In so doing, he is worshipping “other gods.” Since
Hanuman is the gateway to Rama, a devotee should develop unwavering
devotion to Him. This is the secret of attaining the boundless ocean
of Divine Bliss. This insight echoes in the saying of Lord Jesus:
“Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven (God). All else shall be added
