Prátah smarámi hrdi samsphuradátmatattvam

saccitsukham paramahamsagatim turiyam

yatsvapna jágarasussuptamavaiti nityam

tadbrahma niskalamaham na ca bhutasañghah


At dawn I remember the Reality which is the Self, shining brilliantly in the heart, existence-consciousness-happiness, the goal of Paramahamsa sasannyasins (sages), the Fourth; That which knows always the states of dream, waking and deep-sleep, that Brahman which is partless I am, not the cluster of elements.


Pratarbhajámi manasám vacasámagamyam

vaco vibhánti nikhilá yadanugrahena

yanneti neti vacanair nigamá avocam

-stam devadevamajam acyutam áhur agryam.


At dawn I sing the praise of That which is unattainable by mind and speech, but by the grace of which all words shine. That which the scriptures declares through the words `not this', `not this'- That God of gods, they say, is unborn and un-changing.


Prátarnamami tamasah paramarkavarnam

pürnam sanátanapadam Purushottamakhyam

yasminnidam jagadasesam asesamurtau

rajjvam bhujamgama iva pratibhasitam vai.


At dawn I bow to that which is called the Highest Self which is beyond darkness, of the hue of the Sun the ancient goal which is the plenum - That, the residuless form (i.e. the whole) in which the entire universe is made manifest like a serpent in a rope.

Thought for Today

On this Auspicious Day of Shankara Jayanti , let me share my favorite verse with you all !

tvam Girija matih, sahacharaah praanaah, sariram griham,
Pujaa te vishayopa bhoga rachanaa, nidraa samaadhih stitih,
Sanchaarah padayoh pradakshina vidhih, stotrani sarvaa giro,
Yadyat karma karomi tattadakhilam Sambho! tavaaraadhanam".

"My self is Sambhu (yourself); my intellect is Girija; my vital
breaths are your attendants; my body is your temple of residence; my
enjoying the objects of senses is your worship; my sleep is the state
of meditation; all movement with the pair of feet is doing
pradakshina to you and all my words are your praises. O Sambhu!
Whatever I do is entirely an act of worshipping you."

Shiva manasa puja

Jaya jaya shankara

Hara hara shankara
