Hello...Happy Independence Day..hope this message finds all well. My fiance wakes up every morning and says under his breath "Jai Bajrang Bali" as he getting up. I ask him what this means and he says it is a prayer for strength. I understand it means "Victory to Lord Hanuman". I am very familiar with Hanuman, but what is the particular meaning/context of this mantra as opposed to others?

it has its origin in the ramayana.

when lakshman fell sick, the medic suggested that a special root of a special plant can cure the disesase. he gave the location of the mountain where it can be found. immediately, hanuman ran to the mountain and, since he could not identify the specific root, he uprooted the whole mountain and brought it back!

just adding to what sadhuji has just said,

this slogan is normally chanted before doing any hard work or work that needs strength like lifting a heavy weight or even on start of a war etc.

Other phrases used instead of or along with 'Jai Bajrang Bali' are

1. Har Har Maha Dev
2. Ganapati Bappa 'Moriya'
3. Bolo Shri Rama Chandra Ki 'JAI'

Perhaps he needs the strength of Hanuman to take him through the day with his relationship/marriage.

I had a feeling of what it meant, I interpreted it as a prayer for strength to get through the day ahead...He works hard at a high pressure job...on the other hand, I had a feeling that I was opening myself up for a hurtful shot, though, by asking to be sure...

Hanuman is known for his indomitable strength...like Obelix... and infinte sagacity.

Hanuman complex: Not knowing the full potential of one's own strength. Hanuman had to reminded of his own strength by his friendfs when they set out to search for Sita. He was the only one who could leap from the mainland onto the island of Lanka in one bound...he never knew he could do it. The other monekys had to remind him and motivate him to do it. Once motivated, Hanuman draew upon his strength and never looked back...
...and I took the road less travelled.

Indian people used to sing / talk about about God at all times.
In the modern day they try saying their Gods names at least once a day... thats it.

It has nothing to do with your excessive shopping habits... j/k.

I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle.
