"We sing the Chalisa to remind Hanuman who he is, and in the very last verse, we ask him to come live in our hearts. Hanuman is the "knower of all hearts" and lives only to serve God within us and prepare us to live fully in the spirit. His entrance into our lives brings about the fulfillment of every desire. It's not necessary to ask Hanuman for anything, for he knows all. But as human beings, we honor and express the longing in our own hearts, recognizing our predicament - that we are stuck in the feeling of separateness. This reaching out destroys the sense of distance from the Beloved." - Krishna Das, from Flow of Grace.
