Those devotees who recite these verses with love and unwavering faith have all their beneficial desires fulfilled by Hanuman.
jaya hanumanta santa hitakāri
suni lījai prabhu araja hamārī
jana ke kāja bilamba na kījai
ātura dauri mahā sukha dījai
Glory to Hanuman, the benefactor of saints. Please listen to our prayer. Do not delay in doing the work of your devotees. Please rush to do it and give us immense peace.
jaisé kūdi sindu wahi pārā
surasā badana paiṭhi vistārā
āgé jā-i laṅkinī rokā
māréhu lāta ga-ī suralokā
[Come running] just like when you leapt across the ocean, entered and then emerged from the expanded mouth of Surasa [who tried to obstruct your path], and on landing in Lanka sent the demoness Lankini to the heavenly abode by kicking her to death [when she tried to prevent you from entering the city].
jāya vibhīshaṇa ko sukha dīnhā
sītā nirakhi parama pada līnhā
bāga ujāri sindhu mahaṅ borā
ati ātura yamakātura torā
In Lanka you gave pleasure to Vibhishan [by meeting him] and attained the supreme position [of being loved by Sri Ram] due to Sita’s merciful benediction. Then you laid waste the Ashoka grove and dumped the trees in the ocean, symbolically breaking the knife of Yama, the God of Death.
akshay kumār ko māri saṅhārā
lūma lapéti laṅka ko jārā
lāha samāna laṅka jari gaī
jaya jaya dhuni surapura manha bhaī
You killed Akshay Kumar (Ravana’s son) and burnt Lanka with your tail. Lanka burned like lac (molten wax) and the heavens were filled by the sound of “Hail to Hanuman’s glory”.
aba bilamba kéhi kāraṇa swāmi
kṛpā karahu ura antarayāmī
jaya jaya lakhana prāṇa ké dātā
ātura ho-i dukha karahu nipātā
Why are you delaying now my Lord; you know what resides in the minds of your devotees, so have mercy on me. Glory to you who restored the life of Lakshman. Quickly dispel my fears.
jai giridhara jai jai sukha sāgara
sura samūha samarata bhaṭa nāgara
oṁ hanu hanu hanu hanumanta hatīlé
bairihiñ māru vajra ké kīlé
Hail to you, holder of the mountain! You are an ocean of happiness, wisest amongst gods and the most skillful. O you of indomitable spirit kill the enemies (lust, anger, greed…) as if they were nailed by the strike of a thunderbolt.
gadā vajra lai bairihiñ māro
mahārāja prabhu dāsa ubāro
oṁkāra huñkāra mahāvīra dhāvau
vajra gadā hanu vilamba na lāvo
O Lord! Relieve your servant by hitting the enemies with your mace as if it were a thunderbolt. Saying the thundering sound of OM, challenge the enemies and crush them with your mace.
oṁ hrīm hrim hrim hanumanta kapīsā
oṁ huñ huñ huñ hanu ari ura shīshā
satya hohu hari shapata pāyaké
rāmadūta dharu māru dhāyaké
O Hanuman, Lord of the Monkeys, I invoke you with the Tantric mantra Oṁ hrīm hrīm hrīm and Oṁ huñ huñ huñ. Strike the enemy in the chest and head. I swear by the name of Hari that all that I say is the truth. O messenger of Sri Ram, rush to attack the enemy at once.
jaya jaya jaya hanumanta agādhā
dukha pāvata jana kéhi aparādhā
pūjā japa tapa néma achārā
nahiñ jānata hauñ dāsa tumhārā
Glory to you, o fathomless Hanuman! Due to which offence is your devotee suffering so much? This servant of yours knows nothing of worship, sacred mantras, penance, or the discipline of rituals and virtuous acts
bana upavana maga giri gṛha māhīñ
tumhare bala ham darapata nāhiñ
pānya parauñ kara jori manāvaūñ
yahi avasara aba kéhi gohrāvaūñ
Relying on your strength, I have no fear anywhere – whether in the forest, garden, mountains, on the road, or in the house. I fall at your feet and entreat you with folded hands [to help me]. For whom else shall I call at this hour?
jaya anjanī kumāra balavantā
shaṅkara suvana bīra hanumantā
badana karāla kāla kula ghālaka
rāma sahāya sadā pratipālaka
Hail Hanuman! All-powerful son of Anjani and brave son of Shiva. You have a fierce and terrifying body and are the slayer of even the God of Death’s minions. You are always by the side of Sri Ram and are the benefactor of all.
bhūta, preta, pisācha, nisāchara
agni baitāla kāla māri mara
inhéṅ māru tohi shapatha rāma ki
rākhu nātha maryāda nāma ki
Slay all evil spirits: ghosts, spirits, hobgoblins, demons, fire, vampires, calamities, and epidemics. Kill all of them in the name of Lord Sri Ram thereby maintaining the sanctity and truth of the holy name.
janakasutā hari dāsa kahāvo
tākī shapata bilamba na lāvo
jaya jaya jaya dhuni hota akāshā
sumirata hota dusaha dukha nāshā
You are the servant of Sri Ram and Mother Sita. I implore you in their names – make no delay. The sky is reverberating with the sound of your glories, the mere remembrance of which dispels all sorrows.
charaṇa sharaṇa kara jori manāvauñ
yahi avasara aba kehi goharāvauñ
uṭhu uṭhu chalu tohi rāma dohā-ī
pāñya parauń kara jori manā-ī
I have come to take refuge at your feet. I plead with you; who else shall I call for help in this time of urgent need? Get up, get up, come along! I urge you with folded hands to swing into action.
oṁ chãṁ chãṁ chãṁ chãṁ chapala chalantā
oṁ hanu hanu hanu hanu hanumantā
oṁ hañ hañ hāṅka déta kapi chañchal
om sam sam sahami parāné khaladal
I implore you O nimble-footed Hanuman with the call of Oṁ chãṁ chãṁ chãṁ chãṁ and Oṁ hanu hanu hanu hanu. Strike swiftly like lightning! O Hanuman, you are swift. Whenever the monkeys roar, the crowd of evil-doers flee in terror.
apané jana ko turata ubāro
sumirata hoya ānanda hamāro
yahi bajarañga bāṇa jéhi māré
tāhi kaho phir kauna ubāré
Save this devotee of yours immediately. I get immense pleasure remembering you. Who can save one who is attacked with the arrow of Bajarang Baan (literally meaning an arrow as strong as a thunderbolt)
pāṭa karai bajarañga bāna ki
hanumata rakshā karaiń prāna ki
yaha bajarañga baṇa jo jāpai
téhi té bhūta préta saba kañpai
Those who recite these verses of Bajarang Baan are protected for life by Hanuman. Even ghosts and evil spirits tremble out of fear of those who chant this Bajarang Baan.
dhūpa déy aru japai hameshā
tāké tana nahiñ rahai kaleshā
Those who wave incense sticks in front of you and chant your holy name are always free from bodily torments of all kinds.

sadā dharai ura dhyān
téhi ke kāraja sakala shubha
siddha karaĩ hanumān
