Hat tip to Frances at Lilablog (whose partner is Thad, our contact at elephant journal) for finding this version of the Hanuman Chalisa.
I feel like maybe we should have discovered it first; the artist, Trevor Hall, lives in Laguna Beach, CA. That’s about five miles from where we lived for about seven years and still just 50 or so from us now.
I guess Frances’ bhatki has ours beat!
Here is what Frances has to say about him on her blog, Lilablog:
He writes the most beautifully poetic devotional songs, but in a very contemporary style. If you’ve never heard of him, I highly recommend you check him out. Definitely give a listen to his song “My Baba” that he does with Krishna Das – it’s one of my favorites! He’s actually coming to Charlottesville in July….FY and I very psyched for that show.
FY is Thad; I believe it stands for Fiance Yogi.
And here’s the Chalisa video:
As MC Yogi might say, Hanuman rocks. Frances’ blog does, too.
