Prayer of Gratitude

When you make your first step through prayer, through chanting, the Divine will run to you. And it is possible to attain Him. Open up the mind, surrender it to Him, and let the Love which you have inside of you flow. If you have not yet attained this Love, do everything to attain it. That’s who you are and that’s what you are here for.

We should always use our common sense. It is of no use to take off and ‘fly around.’ We have to stay grounded and also do our work on this Earth. We have to proceed patiently and with respect to the Divine and to ourselves.

-Sri Swami Vishwananda

Prayer of Gratitude

Oh, Lord, our God. . .
The road we travel in this life
Is wrought with strife and toil.

When we pray and meditate
Your Atma Kriya with sincerity,
Though . . .
Our Heart becomes pure and afire
With Love and Truth of Divine Light.
This Love-Light lives within our Heart
That has become so open to
The truth of life now.
This is Your God-given human right
Since You breathed into us
Your breath of life.

The road to hell lies within the material world
When we ignore Your Truth Within.
For in our Heart
We are Your Love from the beginning.
And Love we ever shall be
From the beginning without end
Throughout Your eternity.

Amen and OM.
