SANKAT MOCHAN – SHRI HANUMAN ASHTAKAM
The Sankat Mochan also known as Shri Hanuman Ashtakam, which follows the devotional classic Shri Hanuman Chalisa, is one of the most popular compositions of Goswami Tulsidasji. It is a moving prayer from a lamenting heart, pleading with the ever compassionate Hanumanji, who is well-known for alleviating the distresses of even the most exalted spiritual personalities. It also reveals secretly the causes of our inner bondage and sorrows and how these can be removed effectively.
Swamiji not only brings out the beautiful sentiments of these verses but also inspires readers to invoke Sankat Mochan Shri Hanumanji to extinguish the causes of sorrow in their lives and to find peace at the feet of Lord Rama’s most extra ordinary devotee.
