Vedic prayer

An old ancient Vedic prayer is,

‘God of the wealth is in the beginning of my palm, residing in my palm. God of wisdom is residing in my palm. God’s valor is residing in my own palm. So let the good things happen through me’.

This is how we are supposed to wake up and look at our hands.

~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The way to pray

"If you look to God, if you pray to God, with a full heart, dropping sorrow, then whatever you desire, will be given to you."

~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Sri Banke Bihari ji ke sawaiya, 38 of 144, Prayer to Krishna

३८.

ऐसी करा नव लाल रंगीले जू चित्त न और कहूं ललचाई।

जो सुख दुख रहे लगि देहसों ते मिट जायं आलोक बड़ाई॥

मागति साधु वृन्दाबन बास सदा गुण गानन मांहि विहाई।

कंज पगों में तिहारे बसौं नित देहु यहै ‘ध्रुय’ को ध्रुवताई॥

३५.

मन में बसी बस चाह यही प्रिय नाम तुम्हारा उचारा करूं।

बिठला के तुम्हें मन मंदिर में मन मोहन रूप निहारा करूं॥

भर के दृग पात्र में प्रेम का जल पद पंकज नाथ पखारा करूं।

बन प्रेम पुजारी तुम्हारा प्रभो नित आरती भव्य उतारा करूं॥

A Quiet Mind, a poem by Ruskin Bond

Blue water lily

Lord, give me a quiet mind,
That I might listen;
A gentle tone of voice
That I may comfort others.
A sound and healthy body,
That I may share...
In the joy of walking,
And leaping and running.
And a good sense of direction,
So I might know just where I am going.

~ Ruskin Bond, To Live in Magic
