श्रीगुरु चरन सरोज रज, निज मनु मुकुरु सुधारि।
बरनउँ रघुबर बिमल जसु, जो दायकु फल चारि॥

With the dust of guru’s lotus feet having,
I cleanse the mirror of my soul sparkling,
Raghuvar’s spotless glory I be singing,
The four fruits of life it ever is giving.

Munindra Misra
“संकट मोचन हनुमानाष्टक
मत्तगयन्द छन्द

बाल समय रबि भक्षि लियो तब तीनहुँ लोक भयो अँधियारो।
ताहि सों त्रास भयो जग को यह संकट काहु सों जात न टारो।
देवन आनि करी बिनती तब छाँड़ि दियो रबि कष्ट निवारो।
को नहिं जानत है जग में कपि संकटमोचन नाम तिहारो॥१॥

When as a child you lapped the sun, darkness on triple world fell,
The worlds so got into trouble and a crisis that none could dispel,
Gods then prayed to you to spare the sun and you did so quell,
Who doesn’t know in this world your name `Problem Solver’ bells?

Munindra Misra, Chants of Hindu Gods and Godesses in English Rhyme

“On the path of devotion, the relationship between the devotee and deity is personal and unique. Your father’s Hanuman can be different from your Hanuman. Maybe his Hanuman doesn’t allow him to cut nails on Tuesday, your Hanuman might allow. The devotee assigns characteristics to the deity out of love. There are as many deities as there are devotees.”

“Nothing is unattainable, my Lord, to him who enjoys Your grace. Through Your might, a mere shred of cotton can surely burn a submarine fire (the impossible can be made possible).”
