Aarti Bajrangbali Ki


Arti kiyiye hanuman lala ki, duhst dalan ragunath kala ki,      Hanuman ji ki Aarti
Jake bal se girdhar kapen, rug dosh jake nikat na jhake,
Anjani putra maha baldayi, santan ke prabhu sada sahaii
De bida raghunath pdhayae,lanka jari siya sudhi laye,
Lanka so kott samudra si khayi, jat pawan sut war na layi,
Lanka jari ansuri sab mare, sita ram ji ke kaj sanvare,
Laxman morchit pade dharni mein, laye sanjevan pran ubare,
Padhi patal turi jamkare, ahiravan ki bhuja okhare,
Baii bhuja ansur sab mare, dahin bhuja sant ubare,
Sur nar muni jan arti utare, jai jai jai hanuman ucharee,
Kanchan thal kapoor ki bati, arti karat anjana mai,
Jo hanuman ji ki arti gavaen, basi baekunth param pad pave,
Lank vidhvans kiye raghurai, tulsidas swami kirti gayi.
