22-Use of Hanumaan Chaaleesaa
As told on the first page of Hanumaan, Hanuman Chaaleesaa is the most sung or most recited prayer among people of India. Children sing it with a great enthusiasm. It has been written in Dohaa Chaupaaee meters. Its one Chaupaaee "Bhoot Pishaach Nikat Nahin Aavai, Mahaaveer Jab Naam Sunaavai" is even popular in Muslims also. In all it is a very powerful devotional work that has been left by Tulasee Daas Jee for this world. Hanumaan Chaaleesaa has been found to be highly effective in controlling the evil effects of Saturn transit or Saturn's major and minor periods. Those who are under such influences get benefited by chanting the Chaaleesaa for 8 times on Saturdays. It is called Hanumaan Chaaleesaa because it contains Chaalees (means 40) Chaupaaee (verses). THis Chaaleesaa can be sung in different tunes, but whenever it is sung, whether one knows Hindi or not, enjoys it.
Hanumaan Chaaleesaa has been
written in the praise of Hanumaan, the Foremost Devotee of Shree
Raam. Hanuman is the epitome of selfless service, courage, humble
disposition, and Bhakti all rolled into one. Venerating that noble
Devotee of Raam is sure to benefit us. It is found that specific
verses in the Hanumaan Chaaleesaa are capable of bestowing even specific results
and working miraculously by
--Reciting the Opening Doha of Hanumaan Chaaleesaa many times will remove
the Dosh arising out of having insulted knowingly or unknowingly one’s
preceptor or a Raam Bhakt.
Those who have major tasks to accomplish should recite the appropriate Chaupaayee with devotion 1008 times on an auspicious Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday or on a Mool Nakshatra day. They can also do Hanumaan Jee's tail Poojaa along with this (offering sandal wood paste and Kumkum or Sindoor to the tail of Hanuman Jee’s image for 48 days). Others can just recite it 12 times, 24 times, 32 times, 36 times, 54 times, 108 times, 1008 times, or even 10,008 times based on time availability and convenience. Absolute faith and the correct attitudes combined with this recital can definitely help one to achieve all that one sets out for in life. May the Grace of Lord Hanumaan Bless us all.
