Query from: Sohini, India, 04/01/09
Topic: POOJA      Submitted on: Ammas.com
Subject: Can girls/females do Hanuman Puja

I have come to hear of something like girls cannot do Hanuman Pooja...and neither can they accept the prasad of the God....I believe it is because of the fact that Hanumanji has been a brahmachaari throughout his life...So does that mean that a girl cannot ask for his blessings....Can't worship him like other Gods and Goddesses???

I am quite confused as I have a brother who has bad vision and he is suffering from the ill effects of saturn....In order to reverse the effect I was supposed to help him with the pooja ...to chant the mantras and perform the prayers....Hanuman puja on any tuesday early in the morning is very effective...So now I don't know what to do...Will my chanting the mantras cause any ill effect...?...Please advise!

hi

so surely go ahead with hanuman worship -- hanuman as a great devotee of rama is preferrable for you instead of hanuman as a nitya bramha chari.

there are few reasons which make people think that hanuman should not be worshipped by a female.WHICH ARE ALL FALSE.

anuman chalisa gives immense strength not only physical but also mental strength which is a kind of shield for women to survive in this fear infested society! so you can very well read it but with undoubting faith in GOD!

good luck

Hello Sohini

Hanuman pooja can be performed by both males and females. There are no restrictions. The worship of Hanumanji can be done at home or in the temple.Normally saturdays and thursdaya are considered auspicious days for Hanuman worship.

You can also read Hanuman Chalisa everyday at home for the benefit of your brother. Hanumanji like Ganesha removes Sankat of anyone praying to Him.

Only good things will happen when you worship Hanumanji.

Best wishes

sohini,

Women pray to Sri Hanuman all over India. Women are not allowed to touch the sthapit moorti of Hanuman ji. This practise exists in various temples of many other Gods as well.

(http://sawaal.ibibo.com/puja-and-ri…)

You can also chant Sri Hanuman Chalisa daily or on Tuesdays and Saturdays. You can chant 108 times. You can also chant 11 times every day for 40 days.

It is extremely important that every Hanuman chalisa chanting should be done only after shower wearing just washed and dried clothes in a pure_only_for_God place. Its preferable to do the Hanuman Chalisa chantings before taking food for the day.

Importance of Hanuman Chalisa :

Hanuman Chalisa is a very powerful devotional work that has been left to posterity by Goswami Tulsidas whose devotional work - Tulsi Ramayan has revolutionized Bhakti movement by enabling common man to recite the glorious legend of Shri Rama in his native tongue.

Hanuman Chalisa has been found to be highly effective in controlling the evil effects of Saturn transit or Saturn's major/ minor periods. Those who are under such influences will get benefitted by chanting the Chalisa for 8 times on Saturdays.

Hanuman Chalisa praises Lord Hanuman the Foremost Devotee of Lord Shri Rama. Shri Hanuman is the epitome of Selfless Service, Courage, Humble disposition, and Bhakti all rolled into one. Venerating that noble Devotee of Raamaa is sure to benefit us.

Those who have major tasks to accomplish should recite the appropriate Chaupayi with devotion 1008 times on an auspicious Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday or on a Moola Nakshatra day.

They can also do tail pooja along with this (offering sandal wood paste and kumkum/sindoor to the tail of Hanumanji’s image for 48 days).

Others can just recite it 12 times, 24 times, 32 times, 36 times, 54 times, 108 times, 1008 times, or even 10008 times based on time availability and convenience.

Absolute Faith and the correct attitudes combined with this recital can definitely help one to achieve all that one sets out for in life.

There is nothing like that. Everyone can do pooja for hanuman. Only thing u have to maintain cleanliness always.

The simplest and best sloka for hanuman is hanuman chalisa. U can tell this sloka 11 times on that day. Moreover he likes red flowers and fruits like mango, guava, bananas. So take a bath, wear clean clothes, wear bindi and if possible a red dress. Then keep red flowers for hanuman, offer him fruits and light incense sticks. then u can tell hanuman chalisa. This is the best form of pooja for him. All the best.

there is noo such rule that hanuman pooja cannot be done by girls. he is great saint who worshiped rama with immense trust. he is ready to serve rama at anytime. we think he is a servant. but rama never treae4d him lke a servant. he treated hanman like his brother bharath. anyone can worship saint. he is still alive. whenever you chant the name of rama he will be present so before you worship hnuman chantrama naam for some times so that he will be with you happily and receive your prayer.

hi sohini,

the information i gathered to your question is --

YOU CAN RECITE HANUMAN CHALISA & ALSO CAN GO TO HANUMAN MANDIR FOR DARSHAN BUT GIRLS CANOT PERFORM THE POOJA BECAUSE HANUMANJI IS BAL BRAHAM CHARI......THAT IS WHY WOMAN DOES NOT PERFORM HANUMANJI POOJA...so you can chant hanuman chalisa daily and visit the hanuman temples so that you will be blessed and your wishes will be fulfilled.

best wishes

Dear Sohini, Dont worry. Chanting the mantras of hanuman wont give any ill effect. You can do hanuman puja. There is no objection for you as because you are a girl.Infact if anybody do hanuman puja will get strength and will power. The god give us strength both morally and physically. hanuman is such a god that he is able to locate Sita (who is in an island of Ravana) and make rama happy giving him the news. that means he can do impossible things possible. Your brother will get all the blessings from hanuman. please chant hanuman mantras without any doubt. with blessings, lakshmi.

all can pray and do puja to hanuman in the house. To do puja in the house, no rules need be followed as it is personal and athmanumbhavam. All gender differences ( male and female ) is there only BOOLOKA and in suvarloka, it is only athman and no gender.As such one need not be restricted based on their sex to do puja.

hi

girls can also do hanuman pooja. Hanuman Chalisa------ It has gained enormous popularity among the modern-day Hindus. Many of them recite it as a prayer every day (or every week, generally on Tuesdays or Saturdays). Hanuman is a bachelor deity and many bachelors are staunch devotees of Shri Hanuman.

It is believed that the person who chants the Hanuman Chalisa 100 times daily for 100 days will become free from the cycle of birth and death and enjoy the highest bliss, as stated in verse 38.

you can worship Lord Hanuman with out any hesitations and with out any doubts. He is lord and there is no question,that rises He never accepts the prayers of women. and dont believe in those things. but do whatever your puja at early morning time inbetween 4.30am to 5.30am only and if possible and like to do in evening also,you do it in evening at 5.30pm to 6.30pm

read HANUMAN CHALISA daily with whole heart and belief will protects and leads us in good way.

if possible try to keep your brother along with you aside and let him also read HANUMAN CHALISA along with you atleast in early morning time.

# i would like to suggest, to do whatever prayer you perform and whatever you do to offer your beloved GOD or GODDESS.. do it with whole heart and full belief.

Dear, it is only said that girls are not suppose to touch the Hanuman God. But nothing else than this is mentioned. I think you should go ahead to do your Karma. Let me tell you one thing dear, you are a very good sister, and god is going to listen to you very soon.

God bless you.

Hello Sohini,

Yes its true hanuman has been a strict bramhachari. It doesn't mean we cannot pray to him. You have to be very clean when you pray to him and especially avoid menstural days upto 7 days and be very clean when you do pooja to him. No God will punish for telling prayers and prayer to them dont get you can also pray to lor surya for eye related problem and visit Kurathalwar temple in Tamilnadu for good vision...

There is a school of thought that regards that only Kanyas (young girls) and Matas (grandmothers) can worship Shri Hanuman ji, because of him being a Brahmachari. If you have been told to worship him in order to nullify Mangal Dev or Shani Dev, you can visit a Navgrah Temple instead and worship Mangal Dev on Tuesday or you can bathe Shani Dev with Mustard oil (Sarson Ka Tel) on Saturday. The oil remedy is extremely effective. DO NOT use mustard oil even for lighting a Deepak if you are worshipping Mangal Dev.

You can also visit the Shiv Panchayat in any Shiv temple and worship them. Of the Panchayat, first worship Ganpati Jee, then Gauri Maa, then Nandishwar Jee, then Nagdev, and finally, Shankar ji. You will feel considerable relief.

Anybody can do Hanuman pooja. Hanuman is bhakta of Shri Ram. People can reach Ram by worshipping Hanuman. How then can girls be prevented from doing Hanuman pooja.

Girls can definitely do Hanuman Puja. No where in our sastras or vedas mentions anything that prohibits girls from doing hanuman puja. I encourage you to do the puja and not pay heed to such blind beliefs.
