Hanuman Chalisa Chanting
Sri Swamiji entered the Guinness Book of World Records as having the largest gathering of chanters assembled together at one time. On January 31, over 128,000 chanters repeated the popular Hanuman Chalisa. Since then Sri Swamiji has created another goal ~ to have 7 billion repetitions of Hanuman Chalisa. One for each person on the planet:). The count has begun! I hope you all can join the TriYoga Mantra Team! We will post weekly our combined count to the Hanuman Chalisa website.
Hanuman Chalisa is authored by Tulsidas, one of the greatest saint-singer-poets. He lived in the 16th century yet his influence lives on as his compositions are chanted throughout ashrams today. Tulsidas’ great devotion to Rama inspired him to rewrite the Ramayana. His blazing intellect was softened with bhakti as he told the story of Hanuman and his devotion to Rama. He extols the virtues of śraddhā (faith), tapas (discipline), dharma (duty), bhakti (devotion). Through chanting the Hanuman Chalisa, these qualities permeate the mind.
To participate in this, one can
1) Listen to Sri Swamiji chanting

Send your count to firstname.lastname@example.org once a day/once a week depending on your convenience.
