MANTRAS and PRAYERS

Navagraha Mantra

Brahma Murari stri purantu karve

Bhanu Sashi Bhoomi-Sutra Budhascha

Guruscha Sukra Sani Rahu Ketuva

Kurvante Sarve Mam-Sutra Bhataam

 

(Praise for the seven planets, rahu and ketu)

 

Mrityunjaya Mantra

Om, Tryumbakam yayamahe

Shugandhim pushti Vardhanam

Urdvaru Kamiva Bandhanan

Mrityor, Mukshi ya Mam ritaht

 

We meditate on Shiva, the three-eyed one of sweet fragrance, who expands spiritual growth.

Like the fully-ripened fruit easily snapped from its stem

May I be free from the bondage of death and attachment in life, but not from immortality

 

Gatayri Mantra

Om Bhur Bhuvah Svaha

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo, Devasya Dhimahi

Dhiyo yo nah, Pracho dayat

 

Earth, Atmosphere, Heavens

We meditate on the sacred light

of the effulgent source.

Let that inspire our thoughts.

 

  

Doxology

Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow
Praise Him All Creatures here below

Praise Him above ye Heavenly Hosts

Praise Father, Sun and Holy Ghost.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who Art in Heaven

Hallowed be Thy Name

Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done

On Earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors

Lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from Separateness

For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory

Forever.

 

The 23rd Psalm

The Lord is My Shepherd, I shall not want

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures

He leadeth me beside the still waters

He restoreth my Soul.

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death,

I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me

in the presence of mine enemies.

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
