Hanuman chalisa

hanuman seen in this form in this age
Hanuman chalisa is very powerful tool to invoke the grace of lord anjaneya or hanuman. This hanuman chalisa is composed extempore by great Rama devotee, sant tulasidas 600 years ago. From that time onwards , this hanuman chalisa became the mantra for all the hanuman devotees to communicate with lord maruthi , or anjaneya. Tuesday is very auspicious day for anjaneya as well as saturday. Hanuman devotees flock the temples of anjaneya on these days and worship him. They recite hanuman chalisa or perform sahasra archana for the monkey god, maruthi. Anjaneya idol will always be available in every temple of rama. In south india , all vaishnava temples will have anjaneya idol in krishna temples, rama temples and balaji temples. Anjanyea likings: Vadas, or appams (andhra type, sweet) are very pleasing offerings, bhogas for hanuman swami. People cook these and offer to him. In tamilnadu vada malai is prepared, that is a garland with vadai and offered to anjaneya. Anjaneya idol is smeared with sindhoora or red color mercury oxide , all over his body. Sindhoora is a specialised tilak , tikka offered from hanuman temples. There is a story telling why anjaneya smeared sindhoor all over his body , which will be discussed later in some other place.In tamilnadu and southern india, the temples smear butter to the mouth of anjaneya to reduce the pain he got when the indra's wepon hit him on his mouth. That is the vajrayudha. Indian devotees speciality is they feel the pain of the God on to them and compassionate for the god on that issue. This would be liked by God. Anjaneya also likes beatle leaves. So, hanuman devotees offer 108 or more beatle leaves to please him. Some devotees write sree rama nam on a paper thousand times and offer that work to lord hanuman to please him
