Prayer and Meditation

NIDHI PARKASH's picture



May my speech be engaged in the narration of Thy attributes;
May my ears be engaged in hearing about Thee;
May my hands be occupied with the performance of Thy deeds;
May my mind ever remember Thee;
May my eyes constantly see the holy persons, Thy embodiments;
May my head be engaged in bowing down to this universe, Thy abode.

— Srimad Bhagavatam
X: 10.38



Prayer and Meditation

NIDHI PARKASH's picture



I bow to Thee, O Thou Pure Existence, the one Support of all the worlds;
I bow to Thee, O Thou Pure Intelligence, the one Self of the multiform universe;
I bow to Thee, the Non-dual Being, the Giver of Freedom.
I bow to Thee, Supreme Brahman, Limitless and Absolute.
