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
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.
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
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.
