Bajrang Baan (Bajaraṃga Bāṇa)
niścaya prema pratīti te, vinaya karaiṃ sanamāna .
tehi ke kāraja sakala śubha, siddha karaiṃ hanumāna ..
Those devotees who recite these verses with love and unwavering faith have all their beneficial desires fulfilled by Lord Hanumāna.
jaya hanumanta santa hitakārī . suni lījai prabhu araja hamārī ..
jana ke kāja vilamba na kījai . ātura dauri mahā sukha dījai ..
Glory to Hanumāna, the benefactor of saints. Please listen to our prayer. Do not delay in doing the work of your devotees. Please rush to do it and give us immense peace.
jaise kūdi sindhu vahi pārā . surasā badana paiṭhi vistārā ..
āge jāya laṃkinī rokā . mārehū lāta gaī sura lokā ..
(Please come running) just like when you leapt accross the ocean, entered and then emerged from the expanded mouth of Surasā (who tried to obstruct your path), and on landing in Lankā sent the demoness Lankinī to the heavenly abode by kicking her to death (when she tried to prevent you from entering the city).
jāya vibhīṣaṇa ko sukha dīnhā . sītā nirakhi parama pada līnhā ..
bāga ujāri sindhu maṃha borā . ati ātura yama kātara torā ..
In Lankā you gave pleasure to Vibhīṣaṇa (by meeting him) and attained the supreme position (of being loved by Śrī Rāma and then became the king of Lankā) due to Sītā’s merciful benediction. Then you laid waste the Ashoka grove and dumped the trees in the ocean, symbolically breaking the knife of Yama (the God of Death).
akṣaya kumāra ko māri saṃhārā . lūma lapeṭi laṃka ko jārā ..
lāha samāna laṃka jari gaī . jai jai dhuni sura purama meṃ bhaī ..
You killed Akṣaya Kumāra (Rāvaṇa’s son) and burnt Lankā with your tail. Lankā burned like lac (molten wax) and the heavens were filled by the sound of “Hail to Hanumāna’s glory”.
aba vilaṃba kehi kāraṇa svāmī . kṛpā karahu prabhu antaryāmī ..
jaya jaya lakṣmaṇa prāṇa ke dātā . ātura hoī dukha karahu nipātā ..
Why are you delaying now my Lord; you know what resides in the minds of your devotees, so have mercy on me. Glory to you who restored the life of Lakṣmaṇa. Quickly dispel my fears.
jai giradhara jai jai sukha sāgara . sura samūha samaratha bhaṭa nāgara ..
oṃ hanu-hanu-hanu hanumaṃta haṭhīle . vairahiṃ mārū bajra sama kīlai ..
Hail to you, holder of the mountain! You are an ocean of happiness, wisest amongst gods and the most skillful. O you of indomitable spirit kill the enemies (lust, anger, greed…) as if they were nailed by the strike of a thunderbolt.
gadā bajra tai berihīṃ mārau . mahārāja nija dāsa ubāroṃ ..
suni haṃkāra huṃkāra dai dhāvo . bajra gadā hani vilamba na lāvo ..
O Lord! Relieve your servant by hitting the enemies with your mace as if it were a thunderbolt. Saying the thundering sound of OM, challenge the enemies and crush them with your mace.
oṃ hrīṃ hrīṃ hrīṃ hanumaṃta kapīsā . oṃ huṃ huṃ huṃ hanu ari ura śīsā ..
satya hohu hari satya pāya kai . rāma duta dharū māru dhāī kai ..
O Hanumāna, Lord of the Monkeys, I invoke you with the Tantric mantra Oṁ hrīṃ hrīṃ hrīṃ and Oṁ huṃ huṃ huṃ. Strike the enemy in the chest and head. I swear by the name of Harī that all that I say is the truth. O messenger of Śrī Rāma, rush to attack the enemy at once.
jai hanumanta ananta agādhā . duḥkha pāvata jana kehi aparādhā ..
pūjā japa tapa nema acārā . nahiṃ jānata hai dāsa tumhārā ..
Glory to you, o fathomless Hanumāna! Due to which offence is your devotee suffering so much? This servant of yours knows nothing of worship, sacred mantras, penance, or the discipline of rituals and virtuous acts
vana upavana jala-thala gṛha māhīṃ . tumhare bala hama ḍarapata nāhīṃ ..
pām̐ya parauṃ kara jori manāvauṃ . apane kāja lāgi guṇa gāvauṃ ..
Relying on your strength, I have no fear anywhere – whether in the forest, garden, mountains, on the road, or in the house. I fall at your feet and entreat you with folded hands (to help me). For whom else shall I call at this hour?
jai aṃjanī kumāra balavantā . śaṃkara svayaṃ vīra hanumaṃtā ..
badana karāla danuja kula ghālaka . bhūta piśāca preta ura śālaka ..
Hail Hanumāna! All-powerful son of Aṃjanī and you are the incarnation of Śaṃkara himself. You have a fierce and terrifying body and are the slayer of even the agents of Yama (God of Death). You are always by the side of Śrī Rāma and are the benefactor of all.
bhūta preta piśāca niśācara . agni baitāla vīra mārī mara ..
inhahiṃ māru, toṃhi śamatha rāmakī . rākhu nātha maryāda nāma kī ..
Slay all evil spirits: ghosts, spirits, hobgoblins, demons, fire, vampires, calamities, and epidemics. Kill all of them in the name of Śrī Rāma thereby maintaining the sanctity and truth of the holy name.
janaka sutā pati dāsa kahāo . tākī śapatha vilamba na lāo ..
jaya jaya jaya dhvani hota akāśā . sumirata hota susaha duḥkha nāśā ..
You are the servant of Śrī Rāma and Mother Sītā. I implore you in their names – make no delay. The sky is reverberating with the sound of your glories, the mere remembrance of which dispels all sorrows.
caraṇa pakara kara jori manāvau . yahi avasara aba kehi gauharāvauṃ ..
uṭhu-uṭhu cala tohi rāma duhāī . pām̐ya parauṃ kara jori manāī ..
I have come to take refuge at your feet. I plead with you; who else shall I call for help in this time of urgent need? Get up, get up, come along! I urge you with folded hands to swing into action.
oṃ caṃ caṃ caṃ caṃ capala calantā . oṃ hanu hanu hanu hanu hanu hanumaṃtā ..
oṃ haṃ haṃ hāṃka deta kapi caṃcala . oṃ saṃ saṃ sahami parāne khala dala ..
I implore you O nimble-footed Hanumāna with the call of Oṁ Caṃ Caṃ Caṃ Caṃ and Oṁ Hanu Hanu Hanu Hanu. Strike swiftly like lightning! O Hanumāna, you are swift. Whenever the monkeys roar, the crowd of evil-doers flee in terror.
apane jana ko kasa na ubārau . sumirata hota ānanda hamārau ..
tāte vinatī karauṃ pukārī . harahu sakala duḥkha vipati hamārī ..
O Lord, you are such an ocean of joy that your devotees rejoice as soon as they remember you, now get me out of the troubles soon. Oh Lord, I am calling you humbly and praying for the destruction of my sorrows.
aisau bala prabhāva prabhu torā . kasa na harahu duḥkha saṃkaṭa morā ..

Your strength and prowess is endless, but even then why are you not redressing my troubles? O Bajrang Bali, Please come at the speed of the arrows of Śrī Rāma, do not leave me in lurch and take care of all my miseries and troubles and please grace me with your divine presence.

O almighty king of monkeys please do the needful please do not loose this opportunity to help me. I am your devotee servant please do not dissapoint me. O Almighty son of wind please kill all my woes.

ehi prakāra gāvata guṇa śeṣā . pāvata pāra nahīṃ lavaleṣā ..
rāma rūpa sarvatra samānā . dekhata rahata sadā harṣānā ..
Your glory is such that even the Śeṣā (thousand headed serpent) himself cannot describe your majesty even if they praise you for eternity. You have Ram embodied in you by visualising it you stay pleased and in bliss.
vidhi śāradā sahita dinarātī . gāvata kapi ke guna bahū bhām̐ti ..
tuma sama nahīṃ jagata balavānā . kari vicāra dekhauṃ vidhi nānā ..
Goddess Saraswati (goddess of knowledge and sound) duly describes your qualities in different ways, but still not able to completely describe your greatness. O Lord, I have thought and searched in many ways, yet I have not seen any other being poweful and supreme like you.

bhairavādi sura karai mitāī . āyusa māni karai sevakāī ..
