Hanuman dwadasa nama Stotram or 12 names of Hanuman to get rid of fear


Many practices are followed by religious minded or even common people to get rid of or get protection against various problems faced in life.

Some people wear yantras or lockets offered by holy people or sadhus and priests. Some recite mantras prescribed for these purposes as mentioned in our vedas and puranas.

One such method of chanting mantras or hymns is that of the reciting of 12 names of Lord Hanuman which are uttered along with another concluding sloka to proclaim 'Amen' to the wish that it will yield fruitful and divine results. This dwadasa nama stotram is composed in a lyrical form as given below.

As usual, I am giving hanuman dwadasa nama stotram in all three languages of Telugu, Hindi and English with meanings.
