The Hanuman Chalisa is 40-verse prayer in the Indian tradition, in praise of Hanuman. We will talk a little about Hanuman and the prayer and chant the prayer 11 times together as a group with musical accompaniment. Nina Rao learned traditional chants from her grandfather in a village in south India when she was nine years old. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. She is Krishna Das's (http://www.krishnadas.com) assistant and tours with him, and leads chanting herself in Brooklyn and beyond.
