आरति कीजै हनुमान लला की |

दुष्ट दलन रघुनाथ कला की ||


जाके बल से गिरिवर कांपै |

रोग - दोष जाके निकट न झांपै ||


अंजनी पुत्र महा बलदाई |

सन्तन के प्रेम सदा सहाई ||


दे बीरा रघुनाथ पठाये |

लंका जारि सिया सुधि लाये ||


लंका सो कोट समुद्र सी खाई |

जात पवनसुत बार न लाई||


लंक जारि असुर संहारे |

सिया रामजी के काज सँवारे ||


लक्ष्मण मूर्छित पड़े सकारे |

आनि सजीवन प्रान उबारे||


पैठि पताल तोरि जम - कारे |

अहिरावन की भुजा उखारे ||


बायें भुजा असुर दल मारे |

दहिने भुजा सन्तजन तारे ||


सुर नर मुनि आरती उतारे |

जै जै जै हनुमान उचारे ||


कंचन थार कपूर लौ छाई |

आरती करत अंजना माई ||


जो हनुमान जी की आरती गावै |

बसि बैकुंठ परम पद पावै ||


लंक विध्वंस किये रघुराई |

तुलसीदास स्वामी कीर्ति गाई ||


आरति कीजै हनुमान लला की |

दुष्ट दलन रघुनाथ कला की ||



honours  Shortly after he is crowned Emperor upon his return to Ayodhya, Rama decides to ceremoniously reward all his well-wishers. At a grand ceremony in his court, all his friends and allies take turns being honoured at the throne. Hanuman approaches without desiring a reward. Seeing Hanuman come up to him, an emotionally overwhelmed Rama embraces him warmly, declaring that he could never adequately honour or repay Hanuman for the help and services he received from the noble Vanara. Sita, however, insists that Hanuman deserved honour more than anyone else, and Sita gives him a necklace of precious stones adorning her neck. When he receives it, Hanuman immediately takes it apart, and peers into each stone. Taken aback, many of those present demand to know why he is destroying the precious gift. Hanuman answers that he was looking into the stones to make sure that Rama and Sita are in them, because if they are not, the necklace is of no value to him. At this, a few mock Hanuman, saying his reverence and love for Rama and Sita could not possibly be as deep as he implies. In response, Hanuman tears his chest open, and everyone is stunned to see Rama and Sita literally in his heart.

Hanuman was born to the humanoid creatures called the vanaras. His mother Anjana was an apsara who was born on earth as a female vanara due to a curse. She was redeemed from this curse on her giving birth to a son. The Valmiki Ramayana states that his father Kesari was the son of Brihaspati and that Kesari also fought on Rama's side in the war against Ravana. Anjana and Kesari performed intense prayers to Shiva to get a child. Pleased with their devotion, Shiva granted them the boon they sought.

The Sanskrit texts mention several legends about how Hanuman got his name. One legend is that Indra, the king of the deities, struck Hanuman's jaw during his childhood. The child received his name from the Sanskrit words Hanu ("jaw") and -man (or -mant). The name thus means "one with prominent or disfigured jaw". Another theory says the name derives from the Sanskrit words Han ("killed" or "destroyed") and maana (pride); the name implies "one whose pride was destroyed".
