Hanumatpañcaratnam

I shine forth Hanumān, Who is the Son of Wind, Who is approached by everyone seeking a wish, Who brings forth joy, Who is free from desires, Who is gladdening, and Who is the foremost in the messengers of Rāma. I think of Hanumān, Whose face is like a red new lotus, Whose corners of the eyes are full of mercy, Who is animating, Whose valor is charming, and Who is the pride of Añjanā.[1—2]

I take support of Hanumān, Who is faster than the arrow of enemy of Śambara (Indra), Who has wide large eyes like the petals of a big lotus flower, Whose throat is shaped like a conch-shell, Who is the fortune of Wind, Whose lips are red like the Bimbā fruit, and Who is unique. May the idol of Hanumān — Who destroyed the pain of Sītā, Who brought forth the resplendence and energy inside Rāma, Who destroyed the glory of Ten-headed Rāvaṇa — appear before me.[3—4]

I saw Hanumān, Who is the leader of the group of monkeys, Who is the Sun for water-lily like lineage of demons, Who is perfect happiness of the poor, and Who is the result of penance of Pavana (Wind). Those who read this five-jeweled eulogy on the Son of Pavana (Hanumān), enjoy all the luxuries for a long time; in the end they attain the devotion of Śrīrāma.[5—6]
