SRI HANUMAN CHALISA PARAYANA SIGNIFICANCE
About Hanuman Chalisa
Hanuman Chalisa consists of forty-three verses – two introductory Dohas, forty Chaupais and one Doha in the end. The first introductory Doha begins with the word shrī, which refers to Shiva, who is considered the Guru of Hanuman. The auspicious form, knowledge, virtues, powers and bravery of Hanuman are described in the first ten Chaupais. Chaupais eleven to twenty describe the acts of Hanuman in his service to Ram, with the eleventh to fifteenth Chaupais describing the role of Hanuman in bringing back Lakshman to consciousness. From the twenty-first Chaupai, Sri Tulsidas describes the need of Hanuman's Kripa. At the end, Sri Tulsidas greets Lord Hanuman with subtle devotion and requests him to reside in his heart and in the heart of all devotees. The concluding Doha again requests Hanuman to reside in the heart, along with Ram, Lakshman and Sita. ಶ್ರೀ ರಾಮ್ ಜಯ ರಾಮ್ ಜಯ ಸಿಯಾ ರಾಮ್ श्री राम जय राम जय सिया राम శ్రీరామ్ జయ రామ్ జయ సియారామ్ Sri Ram Jaya Ram Jaya Siyaram Rama Mantra gives immense energy and spiritual energy if chanted at any of the below places.
