I bow to that camphor-hued, white complexioned

(Lord Shiva), who is Incarnation of compassion,

Who is the very essence of (consciousness; the

Knowing principle) of life (of the embodied soul);

Who wears snakes as garlands, whose eternal abode

is in the heart of the devotee, I bow to Him (Lord

Shiva) and His consort Bhavaani (Uma or Parvati).

 

Mangalam Bhagawaan Vishnu

Mangalam Garuda Dhwaja

Mangalam Pundari Kaaksha

Auspicious is Lord Vishnu;

Auspicious is He whose flag bears

the emblem of Garuda;

Auspicious is He who is lotus-eyed;

Hari is the abode of auspiciousness

O the most auspicious among those that are auspicious!

To Thee (Lord Siva and to Thy consort (Parvati),

To Thee, O Narayani, our salutations!

From The Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10

The Blessed Lord said:

 

I am the source of all; from Me everything evolves;

understanding thus, the wise, endowed with meditation,

worship Me.

Ch.10 Sloka 8.

 

With their mind and their life wholly absorbed in Me,

enlightening each other and ever speaking of Me, they

are satisfied and delighted.

Ch 10 Sloka 9.

 

To them who are ever steadfast, worshipping Me with

love, I give the Yoga of discrimination by which they

come to Me.

Ch.10 Sloka 10.

 

Out of mere compassion for them, I, dwelling within

their Self, destroy the darkness born of ignorance

by the luminous lamp of knowledge.

Ch. 10 Sloka 11.
