Hanuman Chalisa can be recited by any individual, irrespective of religion, for termination of evil spirits and negative energies.
Before reciting – take bath daily in the morning, stay calm and clean, without eating or touching anything, think about Lord Hanuman and chant Hanuman Chalisa. Practicing celibacy for 40 days while daily reciting the Hanuman Chalisa would create wonders for the reciter. And would help to internalize it by heart.
Hanuman Chalisa was composed by Tulsidas Ji the great Sage whom Hanuman Ji gave darshan personally and told him about several incidences of Ramayan.
The composition of Hanuman Chalisa is made in such a manner that in each doha (couplet) you find mention of at least one God, which makes it so powerful that the reciter is protected by Lord Hanuman – Rudra Avatar of Lord Shiva himself. There are millions of Indians living in India or abroad who have experienced the power of chanting Hanuman Chalisa to ward off evil spirits, remove negativity and generate positivity.
It is very famous among Indians who recite it regularly even to achieve success on common materialistic problems – exams, interviews, business and contracts. For each individual, associated with any sort of career, if intentions are good and motives are pure then no one can stop from getting success with recitement of Sri Hanuman Chalisa.
Though proper translation of Hanuman Chalisa is not possible since the meaning of the words changes due to contamination of impure english language. But still an attempt was made by Venkatesh Ji to translate it, so that more people could comprehend the essence of Hanuman Chalisa and how it is able to generate so much power when one recites it. You find it below original Hanuman Chalisa.
