A Universal Prayer

O Lord! Thou art the Creator of this universe. Thou art the Protector of this world. Thou art the grass and the rose. Thou art in the sun and the stars. Salutations unto Thee! O bestower of joy and bliss!

O Sweet Lord! Let me be free from the clutches of death. Let me be able to look upon all beings with equal vision. Let me be free from impurity and sin. Give me strength to control the mind. Give me strength to serve Thee and the humanity untiringly. Make me Thy fit instrument for Thy work. Make me pure and strong.

I bow to Thee, O Indweller of my heart! O Secret of secrets! Remove my weakness, defects and evil thoughts. Make me pure so that I may be able to receive Thy grace and blessings. O Lord! Thou art the thread-soul that connects all beings. Thou pervadest all, permeatest and interpenetratest all things of this universe.

Thou art light divine. Thou art the dispeller of ignorance. Thou art the All-merciful Lord. Give me a life without disease. Let me remember Thee always. Let me develop all sublime virtues.

Thou art self-luminous. Thou art my father, mother, brother, friend, relative and guide. Let me realize the Truth. Let me be free from greed, lust, egoism, jealousy and hatred. Prepare me as Thy sweet messenger on this earth so that I may radiate joy, peace and bliss, to the whole world. Let me utilise this body, mind and senses in Thy service and the service of Thy creatures. Breathe unto me Thy breath of immortality. Let me recognize the universal brotherhood of man. Let me love all as my own Self. Salutations unto Thee, O Lord of compassion!
