Prayers and Hymns from the
Vedic Scriptures to Recite

Te'na Tyakte'na Bhunjitha,
Maa Gr.dhah Kasyasvid Dhanam || || 1 ||
All this - whatever exists in this changing universe - should be covered by the
Lord. Protect the Self by renunciation. Lust not after any man's wealth.
e've'h Karmaani Jijeevisetsatam Samah: |
E'vam Tvai Naanyatheto'sti na Karma
Lipyate' nare' || || 2 ||
If a man wishes to live a hundred years on this earth, he should live performing
action. For you, who cherish such a desire and regard yourself as a man, there
is no other way by which you can keep work from clinging to you.

are those enveloped in blinding darkness, and to them go after death, those people
who are the slayers of the self.
Manaso Javiyo nainad de'vaa Apnoovan Poorvamarsat |
Tad dha avato'nyaan-atye'ti

That non-dual Atman, though never stirring, is swifter than the mind. The Devas
(senses) cannot reach It, for It moves ever in front. Though Standing still, It
overtakes others who are running. Because of Atman, Vayu (the world Soul) apportions
the activities of all.

Thad antharasya Sarvasya Thadhoo
sarvasyaaya Baahyatah:|| || 5 ||
It moves and It moves not; It is far and It is near; It is within all this and
It is outside all this.
Sarvaani Bhootaani Aathmany -e'vaanupasyathi |

The wise man beholds
all being in the Self and the Self in all being; for that reason he does not dislike
Sarvaani Bhoothany Aathmaivaabhudh Vijaanathah: |
Thathra ko Mohah: kah: Sokah
E'kathvam Anupasyathah: || || 7 ||
To the seer, all
things have verily become the Self; what delusions, what sorrow, can there be
for him who beholds that oneness?

It is He who pervades all - He who is radiant, bodiless, devoid of sinews, pure
and untouched by evil. He who is the seer, the thinker, all-pervading, self-existent,
has duly distributed through endless years the objects according to their natures.

eternal through knowledge.

greater darkness enter those who delight in the manifest.

Ithi Soosruma- dheeranaam Ye' nas-thad
Vicha-chaksire' || || 13 ||
Distinct indeed, they say, is what results from the manifest; and distinct, they
say, is what results from the unmanifest. Thus have we heard from the wise who
taught us this.
Cha Vinaasam Cha Yas- thad Veddobhayam Saha |
Vinaase'na mr.thyum Theerthva
Sambhoothyaa Amr.tham Asnuthe' || || 14 ||
He who understands
the manifest and the unmanifest both together, crosses death through the unmanifest
and attains life eternal through the manifest.

The face of truth is covered with a golden disc. Unveil it, 'O Nurisher', so that
I who love the truth may see it.

of Yours which is the fairest. I am indeed He who dwells there.

the total immortal air; Now O' my lord, please remember all my sacrifices, and

O' Lord of fire, O' Omnipotent one, now I offer You all obeisances, falling at
your feet. O' my Lord, please lead me on the right path to reach You, and since
You know all that I have done in the past, please free me from the reactions to
my past sins so that there will be no hindrance to my progress.
