Aapan tej samhaaro aapei

Tinau Lok Hank Te Kanpei

Your might and brilliance can be controlled by you alone, and when you roar the three worlds tremble.

Bhoot pisaach nikat nahi aavei

Mahabir jaba naam sunavei

Ghosts and monsters never come near him who utters your name, Lord Mahaveer.

Hanuman chalisa, verses 25 & 26

Hanuman is the main deity associated with strength and prana (vital life force). He has the strongest vitality, and because this vitality is used only in the spirit of devotion to the Divine Will, it gains additional power which cannot be stopped. When our strength and vitality is used in pursuit of the path which is laid out by the Divine Will, our capability grows manifold. Hanuman helps counsel us to discover this path.

When Hanuman roars, all three lokas (planes of existence) tremble. The three worlds are: the gross material world, the subtle world (also known as the astral plane) and the causal. Hanuman, as the greatest of Yogis, has power which expands to all planes of existence.

Bhoot and Pisachas (ghosts and other malign spirits) never come near him who utters your name, Lord Mahaveer.

Mahaveer (“of Great Bravery”) is one of the names of Hanuman. Hanuman is a very fierce protector of his devotees, and protects us against malign influences of all kinds, on all planes of existence. It is said that many people are particularly susceptible to negative astral influences which delude them and take them on the wrong path. This is particularly the case for persons who spend a lot of time in imagination. Hanuman protects us from such influences which take us towards wrong turns in life. He is invoked for protection against evil of all kinds, both internal and external.
