When the wind blows, there is life and movement. The trees bend and sway with surrender and life. Maharaj-ji always said that Hanuman is the “Breath of Ram”, the flow of grace from God to the devotee; the Spirit that gives life to the Soul. He is called Son of the Wind, Destroyer of Calamities, Remover of Suffering, Abode of Grace, Ocean of Compassion.
Pranawun Pawanakumaar khala bana paawaka gyaana ghana,
Jaasu hridaya aagaar basahin Raama sara chaapa dhara
I bow to the Son of the Wind
A fire to burn the forest of the wicked, and a rain cloud of wisdom
O wide hearted one, Shri Ram, the holder of the bow
Lives in you.
Atulita bala dhaamam, hemashailaa badeham,
Danujawana krishaanum, gyaaninaama graganyam.
Your body shining like a mountain of gold
Is the home of immeasurable power.
You are the fire that burns the whole demon race…
The wisest of the wise
Sakala guuna nidhaanam, vaanaraa naama dheesham
Raghupati priya bhaktam, vaata jaatam namaami
First among monkeys! All goodness finds a home in you.
You are the most beloved of Ram’s devotees.
Son of the wind, I bow to you.
Goshpadee krita vaareesham, mashakee krita raakshasam
Raamaayana mahaamaala ratnam, vande neelaatmajam
For this world you are like Ram
For the demons, you are like fire.
You are the great jewel in the garland of the Ramayan
Son of the Wind, I bow to you.
Anjanaa nandanam veeram, Jaanakee shoka naashanam
Kapeesha makshahantaaram, vande Lankaa bhayankaram
You are Anjani’s heroic son,
The destroyer of Sita’s suffering.
Lord of Monkeys, Killer of Demons,
Terrorizer of Lanka, I bow to you.
Manojavam Maaruta tuulya wegam, Jitendriyam buddhimataam warishtam
Vaataatmajam vaanara yuuta mukhyam, Shree Raamaduutam sharanam prapadhye
You have conquered your mind, you move as fast of the wind
You have conquered the senses, You overflow with wisdom and mercy.
Son of the Wind, you are Ram’s messenger in this world.
Lion Among Monkeys! Give me refuge !
Bolo Bajarangbali Hanuman Kee Jai!
Hail to the Thunderbolt-bodied One, Hanuman), Hail!
