Sri Hanuman has been so closely associated with divine legend of Sri Ram that to think of the latter as distinctive from the former is almost like thinking of fish detached from water and a flag without its mast.

If ever there was one who could carry aloft the flag of Sri Ram's glory; who could steal the thunder, as it were, of all the worldly exploits of Sri Ram; who could realize the true nature of Sri Ram as being the other form, or a resonance as it were, of the absolute formless Eternal All Pervading Blissful Truth called Braham; whose whole life, very existence, every pore of body, every hair, breath, thought was immersed and steeped in the wisdom of Sri Ram; who could qualify himself to the exalted pedestal of making Sri Ram feel indebted towards him and be called Ram's foster-son; and who showed by deeds what it really means by devotion, faith, loyalty, service, knowledge, wisdom, courage, strength, humility, surrender, persevearance etc. then surely it was none other than Hanuman.

His virtues and wisdom are legendary, and so are his valour, devotion, fame and steadfastness of purpose.

Like a cup dipped in ocean can only collect a sample of the vast, measureless, fathomless water, even so no one can la claim ever to narrate all that is there to be narrated about the glories of Sri Ram and Hanuman. But like that symbolic cup of water, this compilation still represents an humble attempt at trying out what essentially is immense, eternal and beyond mesurement.

So, in this book glories of Hanuman and legends attached with his have been sung in a very modest way, using various related woks of Goswami Tulsidas, Vedas and host of others. The presentation gives a panoramic view of the great deeds of Hanuman, as well as his great qualities. As far as possible, simple, to the point, verse by verse translation and explanation is done.

As a prologue, the author uses on verses from Vinai Patrika as a means of prayer as well as submission before the Lord. The actual text starts with 'Invocational Prayers' (Chapter No. 1) consisting of assorted Sanskrit verses with full text and translation from Ram Charit Manas, Vedas, Narad Puran, Anand Ramayan Etc.

Tulsidas 'major separate works on Hanuman are contained in Chapter 2-5 viz., - Hanuman Bahuk, Astak, chalisa and Bajrang Baan. Then follows a chapter (No. 6) on marvelous Sanskrit verses called Stotras, such as Panch Ratna (by sankaracharya), Hanumat Stotra (by Vibhishan) Maruti and Sankat Mochan Stotras. This is followed by Chapter-7 which has devotion full verses from Vinai Patrika. Chapter-8 throws light on Hanuman with reference to Vedas and Upanishads. Interesting and amazing facts about Hanuman relating to his birth, name, boons, wisdom, weapons, mounts, age, anecdotes-are all contained in Chapter-9 titled 'The legend of Hanuman'.

For epilogue, another verse from Vinai Patrika seeks forgiveness for all commissions and omissions. The 'Gospel of Hanuman' is culled from Hanuman Sanhita while the author's own prayer sums up the essential motivation for the book.

Along with the author's other books (Biography of Lord Sri Ram with complete Vairagya Sandipani, Dohawali, Kavitawali, Vinai-Patrika and Geetawali), this work would serve to present a comprehensive picture on the subject - legends of Sri Ram and Hanuman as visioned by Goswami Tulsidas and other. The books would act as the wheels of the chariot, as it were, to carry forward the fame and glory of Ram & Hanuman.

With all humility and sincerity the author begs forgiveness for all errors of omission and commission, considering the fact that Ram's holy name and Hanuman's fame are so glorious and self luminous that they do not require any attempt by anyone to highlight their splendous. It's like showing lamp to the Sun.

It's just to purity his pen, his thoughts, his mind, his time, his intellect and just as well as a Thanksgiving to his Lord that the author gathered courage to write these two books; these are like offerings to his dear Ram and the revered guru Hanuman, as it were.

He also seeks the blessings of all who go through the pages of these two books, and would regard his efforts rewarded when the reader tastes the nectar and enjoys its ethereal and everlasting sweetness. Amen.
