Gratitude Bath

Good and God’s morning ….. 

this morning while walk in the nearby garden , Moon is still there and little dark ….but after some time there comes a time when light and darkness is in equilibrium

It is regarded that prayers made at this time reach directly to the God. Early Morning Shloka (Sloka) is given here which also serves as the first prayer of the day to the almighty.

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मिः करमध्ये सरस्वति ।
करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥
Karaagre Vasate Lakssmih Karamadhye Sarasvati |
Karamuule Tu Govindah Prabhaate Karadarshanam ||

Meaning:
The front part of the hands (the finger tips) is credited to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth…. 

The middle part or palm is credited to Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning……

and the root (the part of hand near the wrist) to Govinda or divine God … 

So, every morning, one should have a reverent look at one’s hand which represents sincere labor or worship of work ….

what exactly one do is rub both hands lightly and then with both palms cover both eyes ….. rubbing 2 or 3 times the hands …. the effect it has inside is equilibrium between objective brain and subjective brain …..

and this equilibrium of horizontal dimension of time which is linear between past and future and vertical dimension of timelessness brings us to a dimension of now or present which we can feel but can not put into words …. 

to feel this presence without words is true meditation and art of seeing the beauty of divine …..

seeing the first ray of sunlight and as sun comes on the horizon ….our whole family will fold our hands in gratitude to Sun God …..so almost 30 years ago my elder son asked me ….. father does you think Sun is God ?….. 

I replied …..God or no God does not matter …..who ever do good to you is God ….. so for me Sun is God ……. Earth is God ….. every atom is God ….you are God …..your mother is God …

with this sincere prayer for earth …

Samudravasane Devi Parvatastanamandale, 
Vishhnupatni Namastubhyam Paadasparsham Kshamasva Me

I bow to Mother Earth, who has mountains and jungles on her body and whose clothing is made by the ocean. The wife of Lord Vishnu, please pardon me for touching you with my feet. 

what a way to have a Gratitude Bath …Wisdom of scientific and spiritual way of  living civilization …. I call it Sanatana Dharma ……. the Law Of Eternal Zero

with love and gratitude to everything and to all my divine friends and world family …

love all…

One thought on “Gratitude Bath

  1. Dear Ram
    Today I learnt something quite beautiful. I had often wondered about the Hindu attribution of divinity to wealth (as Lakshmi). I thought — what pettiness. But when you put the sloka up there, I realised that ascribing divinity to wealth makes it a common property for cultivation and enrichment; not something private and petty meant to be hoarded and envied. To conjoin the pursuit of wealth, learning, and divinity in an act of joining hands during early sunrise presents is to cultivate something beautiful in God’s glory, with a heart ever open to learning and improving.
