This article will explain one simple way where you can inevitably have the grace of Lord Hanuman showered upon you.But importantly you must must possess the qualities of love,devotion,humility and sincerity.
As we know,Lord Hanuman is the expression of the divine as an epitome of devotion.Lord Hanuman's devotion to Shri Rama was beyond boundaries.Being an ambassador of the path of devotion ( bhakti ) there are many leelas and stories of Lord Hanuman that will simply shake our spine upon understanding His depth of heroism and devotion to Shri Rama.
It is said that wherever and whenever the name 'Rama' is being chanted,Lord Hanuman shall be present with palms folded and tears draining from His eyes !
So what other simpler sadhana could possibly be there to please Lord Hanuman other than the name of Rama ??
Many identify 'Rama' with only a form.'Rama' is not limited to any form.Atma is Rama.
Sage Vasishta said , '' Ramo Vigrahavan dharma ( Rama is the personification of dharma - righteousness''.Dharma itself incarnated in the form of Rama
'Rama' is not limited to only the incarnate - bodied form of Shri Rama.God is beyond all forms.As Krishna explains in the Geetha,God takes an avatar/incarnation to establish dharma.Lord Rama comes in a form of a man with bows and arrows so that common people can appreciate God in a form similar to him.
Utilise Rama Nama and feel the presence of Lord Hanuman.
People generally do this in various forms.Some choose to pen down the name.Others chant.Then there are devotees who vow to utter nothing other than the name of 'Rama'.Even if they wanted to call someone,they only referred to them as 'Rama'.After all,God resides in all.So why not see the residing god-consciousness within men ?
He appeared to examine every pearl in the necklace and once in awhile,he would bite a pearl.Mother Sita was shocked by this behaviour.Was Hanuman proving that after all,he was a monkey ? She demanded an explanation from Hanuman for what he was doing
With great humilty Hanuman replied,''Mother,for me the name of Rama is supreme.An object is worthless if it does not resound with the name of Rama.Some of these pearls are not emitting the proper sound and so I am chewing them up''.Sita was neither convinced nor amused and tersely remarked,''Pearls do not emit sound''.
Hanuman replied,''Everyting that is saturated with the Rama principle will always chant the name of Rama.Let me demonstrate.''So saying,Hanuman plucked a hair from his body and offered it to Rama.When Sita took it near her ear,she could clearly hear the chant of Rama's name !
Remember that Sage Vishvamitra got enlightened just by nama-smarana ( He chanted ' Mara' in a streak.Chanting 'Mara' continuously became chanting of 'Rama' )

When divine grace is pouring,all you need to do is open up to it.Break your ego and with humility,bow to the universe,and grace shall pour into you.
''Chanting RAMA'S Name Destroys all the sins - When you utter the word "RAM", you first open the mouth with the sound" RA". All your sins go out when your mouth is open. When you utter "M" by closing the mouth, the entry is barred against the sins that have gone out. Everyone should recognise the sweetness, the sacredness and the divinity enshrined in the name "RAMA".
