A Hanuman Chalisa for a lazy Sunday

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.

  1. hey steve,
    thanks 🙂
    you certainly made me smile this morning, which is what i need because i’m about to go get a mysore ass-whoopin’ with david garrigues and i’ve gotta bring my happy face.
    glad you liked my post.

      1. Once my hip flexors and back recover, I will have post up with some notes from his lectures…. but in short, it was a super awesome weekend and DG was on fire….

  2. Oh Steve…This is awesome. We feel so special, although you’ve blown my cover as Fiance Yogi…what will the guys at elephant think of me now? Glad that you enjoyed.

    You should definitely check out the temple in Laguna (actually both temples, the Kali temple and the ISKCON temple are both awesome…lots of good spiritual vibes there)…we had one of the nicest visits there when we came through a couple years ago. They have some of the only ashes of Neem Karoli Baba that didn’t go into the Ganga. Absolutely worth checking out.
