about

The Hanuman Chaleesa is one of the most chanted of Hindu Prayers. Written in Sanskrit, the ancient language of the East over 400 years ago, this prayer has inspired hundreds of different melodies across our world.
The story behind the Chalisa is that Hanuman, son of the God of Wind, was very full of himself as a youth, parading his superhuman strength to all. The gods stripped Hanuman of all memory of his innate power. In this way, Hanuman could no longer act from a place of ego, but rather out of a call to love. Each verse trumpets the 1 of 40 amazing feats Hanuman victoriously won for the greater good of all!

Winded during a spin with pneumonia, I began chanting the Chalisa daily and put it to memory. For me, Hanuman symbolizes our vital breath; that essential unseen force in life. The melody on this cd was born from the healing. The writings about breath, inspired from the chanting.

They say when the Chalisa is chanted, that Hanuman can remember his power. With every verse of this Hanuman Chalisa, I pray that we, like Hanuman, can awaken the intimate and sacred potency of our breath.
Gracefully, may we recall the superhuman divinity breathing within us all ~

The Song of Breath ~
Although we can’t hear it, our Breath has a song. The inhale, a song of our Birth, singing that breath is a part of Life, an invitation to blossom and grow amidst the life giving sun and the darkest of moons... the exhale, melody of Transitioning, a visceral ‘letting go’ punctuated with the promise
that nothing on our beloved earth was ever designed to be permanent and that we are all music makers in this symphony of life!

Jai Hanumana gyana guna sagar
Jaya Kapisha tihun lok ujagar

Rama doota atulita bala dhama
Anjaani-putra Pavana suta nama

Mahabira Bikrama Bajrangi
Kumati nivara sumati Ke sangi

Kanchana varana viraja subesa
Kanana Kundalaa Kunchta Kesha

Hatha Vajra Aura Dhuvaje Viraje
Kaandhe moonja janehu sajai

Shankara suvana kesri Nandan
Teja prataapa maha jaga bandan

Bidyavaana guni ati chatur
Rama kaja karibe ko aatur

Prabu charitra sunibe-ko rasiya
Rama Lakhana Sita mana Basiya

Sukshma roopa dhari Siyahin dikhava
Bikata roopa dhari lanka jarava

Bhima roopa dhari asura sanghare
Ramachandra ke kaja sanvare

Laye Sanjivana Lakhana Jiyaye
Shri Raghuvira Harashi ur laye

Raghupati Kinhi bahuta barai
Tuma mama priye Bharata-hi-sama bhai

Sahasa badana tumharo jasha gaave
Asa-kahi Shripati kanta lagaave

Sanakadhika Brahmaadi Muneesa
Narada-Sharad sahita Aheesa

Yam Kubera Digpaala Jahan te
Kabi kobid kahi sake kahan te

Tum upkara Sugreevahin keenha
Rama milaye rajpada deenha

Tumharo mantra bibheeshana maana
Lankeshwara Bhaye Saba jaga jana

Yug sahastra jojana para Bhanu
Leelyo tahi madhura phal janu

Prabhu mudrika meli mukha maheen
Jaladhi langhi gaye achraja naheen

Durgaama kaja jagatha ke jete
Sugama anugraha tumhre tete

Rama dwaare tuma rakhvare
Hoata na agya binu paisare

Saba sukha lahae tumhari shara na
Tuma rakshaka kahu ko dara naa

Aapana teja samharo aapai
Teenhon loka hanka ten kanpai

Bhoota pisaacha Nikata nahin aavai
Mahabira jaba naama sunavae

Nase roga harae saba peera
Japata nirantara Hanumata beera

Sankat te Hanuman churavae
Mana Karama Bachana dyana jo lavai

Saba para Rama tapasvee raja
Tina ke kaja sakala Tuma saja

Aura manoratha jo koi lavai
Sohi amita jeevana pala pavai

Charon Juga paratapa tumhara
Hai persidha jagata ujiyara

Sadhu Santa ke tuma Rakhware
Asura nikandana Rama dulhare

Ashta-sidhi nau nidhi ke dhata
As-bara deena Janki mata

Rama rasayana tumhare pasa
Sada raho Raghupati ke das

Tumhare bhajana Rama ko pavai
Janama-janama ke dukh bisraavai

Antha-kaala Raghubara pur jayee
Jahan janama Hari-Bakhta Kahayee

Aur Devta Chita na dharehi
Hanumata se hi sarve sukha karehi

Sankata kate-mite saba peera
Jo sumirai Hanumata Balbeera

Jai Jai Jai Hanumana Gosahin
Kripa Karahu Gurudeva ki nyahin

Jo sata bara patha kare kohi
Chutehi bandhi maha sukh hohi

Jo yaha parhe Hanumana Chalisa
Hoye siddhi sakhi Gaureesa

Tulsidasa sada hari chera
Keejai Natha Hridaye mahan dera

Pavana Tanaya Sankata Harana
Mangala Murati Roopa

Rama Lakhana Sita Sahita
Hridaya Basahu Soora Bhoop
