Salutations to Goddess Rajarajeswari,
Who gets pleased by worship of Sree chakra,
Who is store house of all the good qualities,
Whose face resembles the shining full moon,
Who makes her lord of the soul happy,
Who is full and more than full,
Who is the consort of Lord Shiva,
Who enjoys nectar as her food,
Who is complete in all respects,
Whose only food is nectar,
And who is Goddess Saraswathy,
The Goddess of knowledge.

Yoga is not different from life

The best way to begin the day is to start it early by doing Bhuta Shuddhi or cleansing of the elements. Follow it up by Hatha Yoga to get the best start to the day.

As you do each activity, be mindful at the present moment. That is also yoga. Utter prayers after waking up, while taking bath, before meals and before sleeping. You can chant japa whenever you have some free time.

In the evening, you can Yoga Kriya and then eat food. Most important thing to remember is you should keep a 4 hour gap between eating meals and doing Hatha Yoga or Kriya yoga. But there is no restriction to mindfulness. We can be mindful and choicelessly aware at any given point of time.

Yoga is life. Of course, going to temple, singing devotional songs, chanting slokas and mantras are part of the bhakti yoga tradition. Another great and powerful meditation is “Who am I ?” meditation. Keep doing your best. And remember willpower is everything. Never give up!

 

Sri lalitha navarathna malai

 

(The garland of nine gems to Lalitha)

By

 

Sri Guru Haridas Giri Swamigal

 

Translated

By

P.R.Ramachander

 

(This is a very moving prayer to Goddess Lalitha.It is divided in to nine sections and each sections gets its name from one of the nine precious gems. Though in some of the stanzas , the name of the gem occurs, in others , the name of the gem is not used as its name but is split in to two and while singing, you will hear the name of the gem.

My Malaysian Tamil friend Sri Thanigasalam sent me a CD consisting of the explanation of this prayer by Sri Hari Das Giri himself a few days back. Hearing it made me want to translate it. I do not know whether I have done a good job. If you find some mistakes, please write to me.)

Bhavani, Bhavani, Bhavani, Trivaram,

Mudaram mudha sarvadha ye japanthe,

Na soko , na moho na papam , na bheethi,

Kadachi, kadanchit kuthashrijananam.                   17

 

Three times repeat the holy name of Bhavani,

With devotion and repeatedly  for ever,

And get rid of sorrow, passion, sin and fear,

For all time and for all ways.
