  8. I learnt Hanuman Chalisa through Smt. M.S.Subbulakshmi ?Amma’s CD and got byhearted. On 27/12/ 2005 i met with a very big accident in main road. My right leg tibia broke on the spot and i could not get up. Buses, cars and two-wheelers were plying continuously. I called one of my friend who was walking ahead in a feeble voice and she came back running to help me. But, she also could not lift me single-handedly. No one around were ready to help. At that time, one auto came and stood. Auto man got down, lifted me and put me in the auto. He told that he presumed me to be his sister and took us to the hospital. He waited patiently. After the initial first-aid help, i remembered to give money for him. When I asked his name, he told that his name is MARUTHI. There are thousands and thousands of name in this universe. But his name was MARUTHI. And it do not see this as a co-incidence. Till date i feel that Lord Hanuman sent me this person to help me.

  11. Hi Reia, You can recite Hanuman Chalisa in English-if you are finding it tough to recite in Hindi. Results that you get will be the same irrespective of the language. Only thing is that you have to do the same with confidence.

  12. If someone want chant hanuman chalisa 1008 times.. In how many days he should complete 1008 times.. Because it’s not possible doing it in 24 hours. I did once 108 times and it’s took me 5 en half hours so I want know how and when I can chant 1008 if want to.. Please help me with right information about it..

  13. Dear Sunny,
    There is not a particular rule to chant about 1008 times in Hanuman Chalisa itself written (Jo Saath baar path kar koi, chute Bandhi Maha Sukhi Hoi) so chanting 108 times as written is good. But if you want to chant 1008 times then you can either choose Tuesday , Saturday or Sunday and chant 108 times on these days and complete it as per your wishes.

  14.

  16. Hanuman chalisa is powerful but we are in kal yuga and if we get complete benefits from this powerful verses of god then we have to chant chalisa 11,21,51 or 108 times daily because chanting 1 time is not sufficient.If anyone totally became hopeless from life then if he/she chant chalisa daily for 100 times for 40 days or 100 days then his/her any problem guaranteed removed and all his/her wishes complete but remember good wish and not bad/harmful wish.

    Thank You

  17. Hi all viewers,
    I shared my daily life experiences after fully devotee of Lord Hanuman ji.I chant Hanuman chalish 108 times on Hanuman jayanti (According to eastern India,Oriya Panji) every year since 2005.I already faced and am facing a lot of problems in my life regarding education delay,field changing attitude in job,lack of concentration, internal and external confidence due to Rahu Mahadasha and badly placed jupiter in D-9(Navamansa) chart which is placed excellent in D-1(Langa) chart.Jupiter is significator of 11 houses in my kundli. (I know astrology very well)
    But due to Lord Hanuman Ji’s blessing and dedication to chant Hanuman Chalish on Hanuman Jayanti I survived from ill effect of Rahu and Jupiter and other malefic planets till now.I have complete faith on Lord hanuman Ji which gives me courage to face all obstacles in my life.
    So my advice to all chant Hanuman Chalisha daily which gives u a lot of courage to face the real world.
    Jai shree Ram…….

  18. My family and I starting the 41 days human fast during this time do my husband and I have to sleep separately, we are doing this fast to open our way and we would like to observe every thing correctly. And we are hoping god will answer our prayers for a son to

  19. i want to recite 1008 times hanuman chalisa on moola star day.but it is impossible to complete 1008 times on that single day.please tell me how can i complete 1008 times on moola star day. because i want to recite on that day only

  20. Dear Ananya,

    Thank you for your comments.

    God NEVER asks for anything. It is We commit to god that for instance, I will do this much chanting, I will fast for the whole day like this.

    Also, the number of counting is Not important, even if you chant 108 times kindheartedly, your faith, belief and concentration on the chanting is very very important.

    So you decide the number counting, as said above, chant the Hanuman chalisa on the Moola star day, Lord Hanuman Ji will bless you on your prayers.

    Note : Before chanting, chant Sri Rama mantra and start the Hanuman chalisa everytime, so tta Hanuman Ji will be very happy to shower his Grace and blessings.

    Thanks & Regards,
