Tail Pooja/Puja for Hanumanji for 48 days: How to accomplish your hearts desire

Tail Pooja of Hanumanji

Tail Puja is one of the other important Hindu rituals. It is the offering of sandalwood paste and Sindoor with Jasmine Oil to the tail of Shri Hanuman’s image for 48 days.

Ritual to be followed:

1) After your morning ablutions and bath, clean the photo of Hanumanji, (an example photo is given in this post, but for a more accurate snap mail us here- admin AT(replace with @ astropeep.com with a soft muslin/cotton cloth

2) Make a thick past of sindoor with chameli (jasmine) oil or chandan with water and with the middle finger of the right hand apply to the base of the tail, i.e start this ritual for 48 days continuously starting at the base (near Hanumanjis Dhoti.)

3) Apply some white clarified white butter (loni) to his chest where the photo of Shri Ram  with Lakshman and Sitaji is present and some to be smeared to this mouth as if to signify that he is eating it.

4) Start this puja on a  Tuesday or Saturday, a New Moon day or a Moola Nakshatra day and continue  applying in small proportions till the top of the tail for continuous 48 days.

5) For ladies, if continuity is a problem, then it is recommended that someone else in the family continues it for them for the 4 days of their absence.

6) Show 3 rounds of camphor, and light 2 aggarbattis to please the lord.

7) Fold your hands and ask for your hearts desire and surely at the end of the stipulated time, you will be rewarded with your hearts desire.

8 ) Reciting the Hanuman Chalisa will doubly benefit you.


Here Sindoor does not mean Kumkum or  the  sindoor that women apply to their forehead, it is vermilion and  bright orange in color. The sindoor which is applied on Lord Hanuman is an orange colour sindoor called the Bhakra Sindoor in Bihar. This sindoor when mixed with Chameli tel or ghee is then applied on Lord Hanuman.

Dear Readers, I  have experienced it and I want all the good souls out there to experience his power.

Keep the Sindoor with the Chameli tel(Jasmine oil) in a small container and continue applying the same paste day after day. This is called as “Chola” for Hanumanji.

Special tips for readers based outside India and with the paucity of time: We have Special photos  for the purpose of this pooja…showing Hanumanji’s long tail with a small bell tied in the end.  Write in a mail to us at admin AT astropeep.com and our team will send you a mail. You can take a printout in a photo studio on Kodak paper and frame it and start your worship. For people who are find it difficult to count the nos of days(48), it is advisable that you take small red sticker bindis (the one that women apply on their forehead. ) from the market and  stick 48 bindis on the tail and each day apply the sindoor on one bindi each. It is simple really, one only needs the shraddha(devotion) and Hanumanji is the epitome of Devotion. Any ways you call out the name of Rama, he will protect you.


  1. Hi. I have tried to find the photo frames for the Hanuman tail pooja but they are not available anywhere.
    I stay in mumbai. Can anyone please let me know as to where from can I get the photo frame for the tail pooja.

      Dear Mr Chetan, we have sent you a photo of Hanumanji that you can frame and start your pooja.

    • Sindoor is never applied on photo there is a separate murti which we call sinduri murti. On sinduri murti sindur is applied, firstly cover the murti wid sum parda then remove the langot then start putting sindur wid the palm of ur right hand nd continue it for as long as u can nd keep on chanting hanuman chalisa then aftr finishing put a fresh langot on maharaj ji nd then remove the parda. He will bless u wid evrythng u want. U will urself feel happy frm inside. Do it my way for any help u can call me 9034111386

    Respected Sir,


    I would like to be clarified regarding showing of 3 rounds of Camphor. Is the Camphor required to be lighted. Some blogs suggest that Hanumanji’s Tail Puja is to be started from the BASE of the TAIL and finished at the tail of the TAIL. Can you please clarify how it should be apportioned exactly so that it finishes at the TAIL on the 48th day.

    I shall also be obliged if you kindly send me the soft copy of the Photo required for Tail Puja.

  7. hi !

    I have been hearing it since my childhood that a female should not touch hanuman ji .That’s why i have never put any sindoor or even touched hanuman bhagwan in my life .It makes me feel real bad . Can anyone advice me anything on this please.
    I hope all of the unanswered questions above along with mine will be answered very soon.


    • Hi,

      Its nothing like that, god created humans as two different categories mostly males and females. Both are important, otherwise there is no births, deaths, good, bad, greed, anything etc….Even hanumanji was born to an female (anjana devi). So it is completely an myth, there is nothing wrong for females in worshiping hanumanji. He is an devotee of lord rama and sita both. But i can say that hanuman tail puja cannot be completed by females within 41 days because, in Indian mythology there is an condition, during the menses times females should not enter into the temples and should not worship the god at homes, if you believe in this condition then you are not eligible to start the hanuman puja otherwise you can start the hanuman puja also. It only depends on the truth and honesty of your soul. btw i am not a pandit, my email id is sjayanth@yahoo.com if you have any doubts contact me.
