Lord I am born from the womb of sleep
I am determined to carry out all tasks
As an offering to you ever present before my minds eye
Make my words thought and deeds sacred and pure
Let me not inflict pain on anyone; let no one inflict pain on me.
Direct me guide me this day. Amen, Amen, Amen

Swamiji taught us to pray this prayer at the beginning of our day

The Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen

Swamiji taught us to pray this prayer

God made all things.
There is only God
When you know this,
Desire melts away.
Clinging to nothing,
you become still.

-Ashtavakra Gita 11:2

Swamiji taught us the true meaning of God

O Lord the tasks of this day whose burden I place on you are over
It was you who made me walk, talk, think and act
I therefore place on your lotus feet all my words, thoughts and deeds
My task is done receive me; I am coming back to you.

Swamiji taught us to pray this prayer at the end of the day.

This is the Truth
