Prayer No. 1
O Lord, thou art self-luminous and self-existent,
Eternal, perfect, pure, free and all-pervading,
Beginningless, endless and unfathomable,
Without pain, sorrow, or any distinction thou art.
Thou are the source and sustainer of all life,
Becoming all, thou permeates all as the all,
Thou art the way, source, goal, truth and the life,
With form and without form, like ice and steam thou art.
Seeing without eyes, hearing without ears,
Working without hands, tasting without tongue,
Knowable through intuition, never through intellect,
The law, law-giver and eternal law thou art, O Lord.
Thou are not responsible for one's wealth or poverty,
All bear the fruits of their own thoughts and deeds,
The greatest doctor, engineer and mathematician,
The greatest magician too thou art, O Lord.
Lord, thou art the manifest and unmanifest,
The breath of all breath, prana of all pranas,
The Self of all selves, the one ultimate truth,
Unborn, undying, everlasting and ever-existent.
