Forty verses to the King of the Monkeys

Hanuman-chalisa is known by heart by many ordinary Indians, it was performed by various Indian singers, such as the recently deceased ‘classical voice of Indian radio’ Hari Om Sharan, Anup Jalota, Tamil singer Subbulakshmi and others. The West came to know it through such legends of American kirtan as Krishna Das and Jai Uttal.
However, the song filled with the spirit of bhakti, love of the Deity and the divine, doesn`t focus on professionalism, but on emotions.
