Prayers


Lord's Prayer translated from Aramaic

 

O Cosmic Birther of radiance and light! Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your presence can abide. Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission. Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire. Endow us with the wisdom to produce and to share what each being needs to grow and flourish.

 

Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes. Let us not be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment for you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth, the power, and fulfillment as all is gathered and made whole once again.

 

 

Gayatri Prayer

 

The Gayatri is a universal prayer which calls upon the Supreme Energy that dwells in the universe to arouse, awaken and strengthen human intelligence, so that it may lead one through spiritual effort and activities to success. It prays for a clear intellect and connection to the divine light  so that Truth may be reflected without any human prejudices.

 

Om bhur

Om bhuvaha

Om swaha

Om maha

Om janaha

Om tapaha

Om tat savitur varenyem, bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yonoha prachodayat.

 

Translation:

 

"Oh thou golden sun of most excellent splendor, illumine our hearts and fill our minds, so that we, recognizing our oneness with the Divinity which is the heart of the universe, may see the pathway before our feet, and tread it to those distant goals of perfection, stimulated by thine own radiant light."

 

 

Prayer for blessing and healing

 

Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings–
those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

 

By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may your heart’s wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon,
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

 

By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
may your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.
