This book - an English poetic rendering of forty couplets by saint poet Tulsi Das - carries transliterations in English below the original text on verso of the page. The English translation of the text rendered in poetry is given on recto of the page.
Much like Edwin Arnold's poetic rendering of the Bhagvad Gita, rhythmic translation of Hanuman Chalisa is meant to provide a wider audience to the spiritual and psychological values of the invocation which is daily chanted by millions of devotees for wisdom, courage and enlightenment.
The unique prayer comprising forty couplets known as Shri Hanuman Chalisa, Shri Sankatamochan Hanumanashtak, Shri Bajrang Baan and other invocation of Hanuman were originally composed in the Avadhi dialect of Hindi and Sanskrit.
