Overview: Pattanaik. Hanuman

Title: My Hanuman Chalisa
Author: Devdutt Pattanaik
Year: 2017

Comments: This is a beautiful verse-by-verse commentary on the Hanuman Chalisa, and it also contains many legends about Hanuman, including stories not found in the traditional Ramayana. You can use this to listen to recordings of the Hanuman Chalisa at YouTube; there are hundreds of them you will find there, and this book contains the Devanagari text, a transliteration, plus the translation and commentary.

Kindle: You can buy your own Kindle copy from Amazon for $3.07 (checked price November 2017); more about Kindles.

Length: two weeks. I've divided the reading into four parts: Part A - Part B (one week) and Part C - Part D (second week).

Part A: Doha 1-2 plus Chaupai 1-10
Part B: Chaupai 11-20
Part C: Chaupai 21-30
Part D: Chaupai 31-40 plus Doha 3
