Hanuman Chalisa, literally Forty verses on Lord Hanuman, is a devotional hymn addressed to Hanuman Ji. It is traditionally believed to have been authored by 16th-century poet Tulsidas in the Awadhi language, and is his best known text apart from the Ramcharitmanas. The word chalisa is derived from chalis, which means the number forty in Hindi, as the Hanuman Chalisa has 40 verses. It is recited to get energy and concentration. Hanuman Ji is the source of immense energy and focus. Reciting Hanuman Chalisa channelizes energy and gives a total focus of mind and body. It's most powerful hymn to ward of evils, ghosts, and disturbing spirits. Reading the chalisa has a purifying effect on both body and mind, and is spiritually uplifting. It saves one from all dangers and helps gain spiritual wisdom and confidence in life. The verses should be chanted for 40 days to have ones prayers answered and to gain merit.
Hanuman Chalisa is attributed to Tulsidas, a poet-saint who lived in the 16th century CE. He says in the last stanza of the Chalisa that whoever chants it with full devotion to Hanuman, will have Hanuman's grace. Tulsidas was a Hindu poet-saint, reformer and philosopher renowned for his devotion to lord Rama. A composer of several popular works, Tulsidas was acclaimed in his lifetime to be a reincarnation of Valmiki, the composer of the original Ramayan in Sanskrit. Tulsidas lived in the city of Varanasi until his death. The Tulsi Ghat in Varnasi is named after him. He founded the Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple dedicated to Hanuman ji in Varanasi, believed to stand at the place where he had the sight of Hanuman Ji. The impact of Tulsidas and his works on the art, culture and society in India is widespread and is seen to date in vernacular language, Ramlila plays, Hindustani classical music, popular music, and television series.
Tulisidas ,was called by the Emperor Akbar in his court, after hearing that Tulsidas had Darshan of Lord Rama. Akbar doubted and he asked Tulsidas to prove the existence of lord Rama. Tulsidas replied that Shri Ram gives Darshan only to his ardent Devotees. Offended, Akbar imprisoned him. In the prison Tulsidas wrote Hanuman Chalisa , in the praise of Lord Hanuman. After completing Hanuman chalisa a force of monkeys attacked the kingdom of Akbar. The entire army force of the Akbar couldn't prevent the monkeys from doing the mischief in the town. Finally the ministers advised Akbar to release Tulsidas and at this decision all the disturbing monkeys quit the town immediately. 🐒🕉📿🐵💪📖🙏🏻
