Man, by application of his thoughts

And prayers,

Ascends to divine perfection.

Where the breath is still in prayers,

So is the mind.

A harmonious assembly

Of body, mind and spirit

Adds strength to the inner world of man.


Prayer is a vital force,

It is the most powerful and beautiful

Form of energy that one can generate.

It is through prayer that the good soul

Cultivating excellence, improves the body.


So many people are misled

By blinding ignorance,

Fake cults and fake Gurus who claim

To have empirical experiences,

Powerful enough to change your stormy life.

Such Gurus are like empty river beds

Who have never felt the flow of water.


The Guru, O man  is seated

In your heart.

He has the ability

To suppress your woes

And help you let go

Old ways of thinking and behaving.


Don’t let the worldly worries,

Like weeds, eat your life out,

Pray.  keep praying not only in moments of distress

But in bright days of joy as well.

Don’t ask, for God knows your needs.

And when you pray,

Pray for all

In your recognition and adulation,

Of the supreme Force, your Creator.
