Bajarang Ban English

Those devotees who recite these verses with love and unwavering faith have all their benign desires fulfilled by Hanuman.

Hail to the refuge of the feet of Sita’s husband, Ramachandra.

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.

[Come running] in the same manner as 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].

There you went and 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[son of Ravana] and burnt Lanka with your tail[which
was wrapped in oil-drenched rags and set on fire at the instructions of
Ravana]. Lanka was burnt 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.
Dispel my fears expeditiously.

Hail to the mountain-bearer ! You are an ocean of happiness, wisest amongst
gods and the most skillful. O you of indomitable spirit kill thy enemies
[lust, anger, greed…] as if they were nailed by the strike of a thunderbolt.

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 call of Om hrin
hrin hrin and Om hu hu hu. Strike the enemy in the chest and head. I say on
oath in the name of Hari that all that I say is the truth. O messenger of Sri
Ram, rush to attack the enemy at once.

Glory to you, O Hanuman, the fathomless ! 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.

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 accomplish my work]. For whom else shall I call at
this hour ?

Hail Hanuman ! The 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.

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 propriety of the holy name.

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[being
sung by the gods], the mere remembrance of which dispels all sorrows.

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[to protect me].

I call upon you O nimble-footed Hanuman with the Tantric call of Om cha cha
cha cha and Om 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.

Save this devotee of yours immediately. I get immense pleasure remembering
you. Who can save anyone who is attacked with the arrow of Bajarang Baan[literally
meaning an arrow as strong as a thunderbolt] ?

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.

Those who chant Hanuman’s holy name with faith, devotion, and love and always
remember him in their hearts are sure to have all their desires fulfilled
by Hanuman.

Hail to the refuge of the feet of Sita’s husband, Ramachandra.

Nishchaya prema pratiti te
Binaya kare sanaman
Tehi ke karaja sakala shubha
Siddha karai hanuman

Siya vara ramachandra pada jaya sharanam

Jaya hanumanta santa hitakari
Suni lijai prabhu vinaya hamari
Jana ke kaja bilamba na kijai
Atura dauri mahasukha dijai

Jaise kudi sindhu mahi para
Surasa badana paithi vistara
Age jaya lankini roka
Marehu lata ga-i suraloka

Jaya vibhishana ko sukha dinha
Sita nirakhi parama pada linha

Baga ujari sindhu maha bora
Ati atur yamakataru tora

Akshay kumar ko mara sanhara
Luma lapeta lanka ko jara
Laha samana lanka jari gai
Jaya jaya dhuni surapura nabha bhai

Aba bilamba kehi karana svami
Krpa karahu ura antarayami
Jaya jaya lakhana prana ke data
Atura hoi dukha karahu nipata

Jai giridhara jai jai sukhasagara
Sura samuha samaratha bhata nagara
Om hanu hanu hanu hanumanta hathile
Bairihi maru vajra ke kile

Gada vajra lai bairihi maro
Maharaja prabhu dasa ubaro
Omkara humkara maha prabhu dhavau
Vajra gada hanu vilamba na lavo

Om hri hri hri hanumanta kapisa
Om hu hu hu hanu ari ura shisha
Satya hohu hari shapatha payake
Ramaduta dharu maru dhayake

Jaya jaya jaya hanumanta agadha
Dukha pavata jana kehi aparadha
Puja japa tapa nema achara
Nahi janata kachhu dasa tumhara

Bana upavana maga giri grha manhi
Tumhare bala hau darapata nahi
Pamya parau kara jori manavau
Yahi avasara aba kehi gohravau

Jaya anjani kumara balavanta
Shankara suvana bira hanumanta
Badana karala kala kula ghalaka
Rama sahaya sada pratipalaka

Bhuta, preta, pisacha, nisachara
Agni baitala kala mari mar
Inhe maru tohi shapatha rama ki
Rakhu natha maryada nama ki

Janakasuta hari dasa kahavo
Taki shapatha bilamba na lavo
Jaya jaya jaya dhuni hota akasha
Sumirata hoy dusaha dukha nasha

Charana sharana kara jori manavau
Yahi avasara aba kehi goharavau
Uthu uthu chalu tohi rama dohai
Paya parau kara jori manai

Om cha cha cha cha chapala chalanta
Om hanu hanu hanu hanu hanumanta
Om ha ha hanka deta kapi chanchal
Om sa sa sahami parane khaladal

Apane jana ko turata ubaro
Sumirata hoy ananda hamaro
Yaha bajaranga bana jehi mare
Tahi kaho phir kauna ubare

Patha kare bajaranga bana ki
Hanumata raksha kare prana ki
Yaha bajaranga bana jo japai
Tate bhuta preta saba kampai

Dhupa deya aru japai hamesha
Take tana nahi rahai kalesha

Prema pratiti kapi bhajai
Sada dharai ura dhyan
Tehi ke karaja sakala shubha
Siddha karai hanuman

Siya vara ramachandra pada jaya sharanam
