So today in this article we will be understanding the meaning of the Hanuman Chalisa and will be looking at the several health benefits it has to offer us. Let’s begin.
In mythology, It is said that Lord Shree Ram advised Hanuman to stay on earth till the end of Kalyug. It is believed that Hanuman is still on earth and provides his devotees with the amount of courage they require to face everyday life challenges. Chanting Hanuman Chalisa acts as a mantra to please Hanuman and get his blessings to overcome various challenges of life. The process of chanting the Hanuman Chalisa is very simple and easy, unlike the mantras of other Hindu gods and goddesses.
Health Benefits of chanting Hanuman Chalisa
Easy to chant, no need to follow any complicated way and easy to get blessings from Hanuman. Who wouldn’t love to chant this mantra? Especially, when it helps in improving your overall mental and physical health. It is believed that you should chant Hanuman Chalisa 7 times a day, including 5 repetitions of the mantra, but even reading the mantra once a day, will make you feel the difference. Tuesdays and Fridays are the two days when you should chant the Hanuman Chalisa mantra at least twice. Getting back to the actual topic, here are the several health benefits of the Hanuman Chalisa mantra.
1. Keeps you safe from the evil aura
Chanting the Hanuman Chalisa mantra keeps you away from evil aura and spirits. Hanuman is believed to be a God of power and strength. He acted as the main ally of Lord Ram to fight against evil Raavan and defeat him. It is believed that chanting this mantra pleases Hanuman and helps you to develop a positive aura that prevents and protects you against any negative aura. For people who feel afraid at night, Hanuman Chalisa helps you to overcome your fear.
2. Protects you from Shani’s dhaiya
Hanuman Chalisa is very popular in the field of astrology as well. Shani’s dhaiya has several side effects which include heel cracking, developing fear out of nowhere and so on. You can please Shani Dev by chanting Hanuman Chalisa, which in turn impresses Shani Dev as well. This is because Hanuman helped Lord Shani once and in return Shani dev said that he won’t harm anyone who worships Hanuman, This is how this mythological fact came into existence.
3. Cures Rahu dosha
We have seen various birth charts that state that this person is affected by Rahu and Ketu Dosha. Rahu impacts someone’s life by making them lazy and puts on several hurdles in their respective journeys to achieving something. Chanting Hanuman Chalisa with full concentration every day will help you to overcome doshas related to rahu.
4. Cure sadness and minor diseases
“Nase rog harai sab peera
Japat nirantar Hanumant beera“
This line from Hanuman Chalisa itself states the fact that chanting this mantra every day will take away all your diseases and sadness from your life and keep you healthy. But one needs to chant it with full devotion to achieve this. This does not necessarily mean that this mantra can be replaced by the treatment of serious diseases by a doctor.
5. Gain self-confidence
Chanting Hanuman Chalisa on a regular basis boosts your self-confidence. Many have confirmed the fact that Hanuman Chalisa has worked as a miracle to boost their confidence levels in every aspect. People who are not so confident about certain things should definitely chant it on Tuesdays to boost their self-esteem levels. This is because the mantra is so sacred in nature that it makes you mentally strong to face any difficulties. To be precise you actually become a “not afraid of anything” type of personality.
6. Boosts memory and concentration
Chanting Hanuman Chalisa just like the Mahamrityunjaya mantra helps you to boost your memory, focus and concentration power. It’s very similar to meditation where you focus on something for a longer time. Similarly, chanting Hanuman Chalisa on a regular basis makes you calm and improves your overall concentration power and focus. As a result, this hymn is recommended for students who want to develop their overall focus and memory power.
7. Increases the luck factor
It’s hard to believe in luck and luck factor as there are no certain proofs related to it. But have you ever experienced something like a tough exam that couldn’t be passed by many but you passed it in the first shot itself? Yes, definitely it was your hard work but even your luck factor worked along with it. Chanting the Hanuman matra 108 times will help you to increase your luck factor.

“Anth kaal Raghuvir pur jayee

Aur Devta Chit na dharehi
Hanumanth se hi sarve sukh karehi “
These lines generally mean that you enter the divine abode of Shri Ram, and you do not need to worry about your future births as you will be born as Shri Ram’s devotee.
