“Jai siya ram jai jai hanuman”

What does it mean? (Source: Reddit)
it’s a sanskrit chant.. Jai/jaya is ‘hail/praise’, siya is a variation on Sita, who is the wife of Ram/Rama which is one of the manifestations/avataras of God in vaishnavita hinduism.
Hanuman is the monkey devotee of Ram that has immense power but is not aware of it (when he was just born, the legend says he swallowed the Sun because he thought it was a fruit) and never uses it for no other purpose than getting closer to his Beloved/God.
The famous hindu epic Ramayana (equivalent to the greek odyssey for example) is about Rama’s war against the evil demon lord Ravana who has abducted Sita at the Island of Lanka. Hanuman rescues Sita with the help of Ram’s brother Lakshmana. Lakshmana gets badly injured and Hanuman shapeshifts to enourmous size and conjures up the power to lift up the himalayan mountains to retrieve a life-restoring herb from beneath them. Thereby saving Lakshmana as well. The common depictions of Hanuman in artwork is of him lifting the mountains or of him ripping his chest open, exposing his heart wherein Rama, Sita and Lakshmana dwell.
In the bhakti tradition Hanuman is hailed as a symbol of a true devotee who treats every moment as an opening/a possibility to get closer to the One. In general in India, Hanuman is greatly revered and seen as a protector and destroyer of evil. People are encouraged to pray to Hanuman in times of trouble or anguish for Hanuman will protect you and remove the obstacles in your path.
The most widespread and popular Hanuman kirtan/praise song is the Hanuman Chalisa.
There is a good Krishna Das version of that one with English subtitles. http://youtu.be/7H15Ds3rGjQ
The chant in From The Heart basically is ‘praise Sita and Ram, praise Hanuman’.
