jaise kūdi sindu wahi pārā
surasā badana paiṭhi vistārā
āge jāya laṅkini rokā
mārehu lāta ga-ī suralokā[Come running] just like when you leapt accross 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 mahāṅ borā
ati ātur 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.

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”.

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.

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.

O Hanuman, Lord of the Monkeys, I invoke you with the Tantric mantra Oṁ hrīn hrīn hrīn and Oṁ hũ hũ hũ. 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.

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.
