Under the title Hanuman chaalisa, i am going to transliterate and translate the slogas from the devotional song for Hanuman .
There are 40 verses in this, and that is why it is called Hanuman Chaalissa( Chaalis means 40 in hindi)
It is a poem written by Tulsidas in Awadhi language , spoken in the Awadh region, Uttar Pradesh, India.
I will try my best to give the accurate meaning. If there is any mistake, please post the corrections in the comments section.
