Even if you do such a simple thing , as, repeating a prayer, while you go to bed and leave your bed, that will bring a marvelous change , in less than six months. Let the prayer be in your natural language. Don’t insist on Sanskrit. In what language , do you actually think? If that is English, welcome English. Let that be any language. Welcome that one. Repeat this: –
(1) Oh Mother, enable me to live my life with sincerity, purity, austerity and charity. ( Stop at each of the four words, to enable you to form a picture of what each word means).
(2) Oh Mother, let me not utter a word of falsehood. Let me not harm anyone. Let me not covet anyone’s wealth or possessions. Let me not have any sexual agitation. Let me not drifted away by my body-senses or mind to do anything which does not please Thee.
(3) Oh Mother, emancipate me from the enslavement of these six enemies over me that have taken full possession of my life – wrathfulness, pride, greed, infatuation, envy and desire.
(4) Oh Mother, teach me to be contented with my lot. Let my relishfulness for the pleasure of the world, gradually dry away. Let me have full faith in Thy protection and help; enable me to bear my burden with every endurance.
Not only such a prayer elevating, but whether you feel pleasure and continue your prayers or feel disgusted and stop (except when you rise higher), is in itself an indication and a proof where you stand.
