Hinduism also known as the Sanatan Dharma is one of the greatest and finest of ancient religions. Its mythological stories and religious books have mentioned that in order to attain Moksha, one should be closer to God. Being close to God will also make our life peaceful and will keep us away from negative happenings.
So how to be close to God? God cannot be seen, he cannot be touched, he can only be felt. Then how is it possible for us to be close to him? Worship him! Worshipping him will enable us to attain a spiritual satisfaction, positive energy and a peaceful mind.
Here are certain prayers you should chant when you get up in the morning.
It is believed that the first thing you see on waking up determines how good or bad your day will be. Our palms are said to have the presence of three Goddesses. Lakshmi(Goddess of prosperity) lives in the tip of the palm, Saraswathi(Goddess of knowledge and power) lives in its middle, and Gowri(Goddess of life) lives at its base. Hence, as soon as you wake up you are supposed to see your palm and recite the following mantra.
Karagre vasathu Lakshmi, Karamadhye Saraswathi,
Karamoole sthitha Gowri, Prabhate Kaa Darshanam.
कराग्रे वसतु लक्ष्मी, करमध्ये सरस्वती,
करमूले स्थितः गौरी, प्रभाते का दर्शनम.
Next, comes the prayer to mother earth. Before we step our foot on the ground, we need to ask her pardon.
Samudhra vasane devi, parvatha sthana mandithe,
Vishnu pathni namasthubhyam pada sparsam kshamasva mae.
समुद्रा वसने देवी, पर्वथा स्थान मंडिते,
विष्णु पत्नी नमस्तुभ्यं पड़ा स्पर्शाम क्षमस्व मए.
Before we start any of our daily activities we should pray the Gods who are responsible for our birth. This mantra means that we are requesting God to make things auspicious for us.
Brahme muhurte chotthaya chintayedatmano hitam
Smaranam vasudevasya kuryat kalimalapaharam
ब्रह्म मुहूर्ते चोथाय चिंतायेदात्मनो हितम
स्मरणम वासुदेवस्य कुर्यात कलिमलापहरम
Worship the creation and the existence. May the sages, Sanathkumara, Sanaka, SanathaNA, Aasuri and Pingala, Let the seven musical notes and let those seven nether worlds, make this morning great for me.
Santhkumara, sanaka, Sananthana, Sanathano apyasoori pingalow cha,
Saptha swara, saptha rasa thaani, Kurvanthu sarve mama suprabatham.
संतकुमारा, सनका, सनन्तना, संगठनो प्यसुरी पिंगलो च,
सप्तः स्वरा, सप्तः रसा ठानी, कुर्वंतु सर्वे मां सुप्रभातम.
Let the seven oceans, Seven mountains, Seven sages, seven forests, Seven Islands and Seven Lokas, make this morning great to me.
Satharnva Saptha kulachalascha,
Saptharshayo dweepa pavanani saptha,
Bhooradhi kruthwa, bhuvanai saptha,
Kurvanthu mama suprabhatham.
सथारणवा सप्तः कुलाचलाश्चा, सप्तर्षयो द्वीप पवननि सप्तः,
भूऱाधि कृत्वा, भुवनै सप्तः, कुर्वंतु मां सुप्रभातम.
Then we should worship the Sun – the cause of existence and source of energy. Before reciting this mantra we need to face towards the East. We need to worship him for long life, wealth and intelligence.
Bhano, bhaskara Marthanda, Chanda rasmai, divakara,
Ayur, arogyam, budhim, sree yamscha dehi mae.
बहनो, भास्कर मारठंडा, चंदा रस्मी, दिवाकर,
अय्यर, आरोग्यम, बुद्धिम, श्री यमश्चा देहि मए.
Then comes the prayer to bring in harmony of the mind, body and spirit. In this prayer, we promise God that we will work with vigor and maintain peace.
Saha veerya karava vahai,
Sahana navathu.Sahanou bunakthu. Saha veerya karavavahai.
Tejaswinaa vadheedamasthu maa vidwishavahaii.
Om shanthi, shanthi, shanthi.
सहा वीर्य करावा है, सहना नावथु.सहनौ भुनक्तु. सहा वीर्य करवावहै.
तेजस्विना वधीदामस्तु माँ विद्विषावही. ॐ शांति, शांति, शांति.
