The Hanuman Stavan is a collection of stotras in praise of the powers, deeds and devotion of Lord Hanuman. The stavan is separated into six main parts and the sanskrit and romanicized versions are given here to promote proper pronunciation and understanding. Sample audio clips (sung beautifully by Shri Anup Jalota) of each of the six parts are also included to aid in understanding of this beautiful dedication to Sri Hanuman.

Please accept me and my prayers at your feet.

Whenever Lord Rama's (raghunaatha-) name is chanted (kirtanam-), you are present with your head bowed (krita-mastika-) and with devotion in your eyes (-anjalim). You, Lord Hanuman, always have your eye on the entire universe of your devotees through your divine and complete (paripurna-) vision (lochanam-). You are like the wind (marutim-) and the destroyer of the demons (rakshasa-) on this earthly plane.
