Publisher's Summary

Reflecting on one of Hinduism’s most popular prayers for positive energy

Acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik demystifies the Hanuman Chalisa for the contemporary listener. His unique approach makes the ancient hymn accessible. 

Every time we experience negativity in the world and within ourselves, every time we encounter jealousy, rage and frustration, manifesting as violation and violence, we hear or read the Hanuman Chalisa. Composed over 400 years ago by Tulsidas, its simple words in Awadhi, a dialect of Hindi, and its simple metre musically and very potently evoke the mythology, history and mystery of Hanuman, the much-loved Hindu deity through whom Vedic wisdom reached the masses. As verse follows verse, our frightened, crumpled mind begins to expand with knowledge and insight, and our faith in humanity, both within and without, is restored.
