Hanuman Chalisa Lyrics in English with Translation


Lord Hanuman Chalisa full lyrics with English Translation. Every profound devotee of Lord Hanuman must chant this Hanuman Chalisa everyday in order to gain fruits of his worship. And, since there is no use of chanting this maha-mantra without knowing its meaning, you must also be conscious of the message and idea behind each and every word/stanza that you recite.

I have been reciting Hanuman Chalisa for past 15 years now. When I was composing this post, even I found out to my surprise that i didn't have complete knowledge on some stanzas of this Chalisa. Hope this post will remove all your doubts regarding the meaning of this great Hanuman prayer.
