Practical exercises as taught by Sirshree

Be in a state of prayer throughout the day

1.       Prayer on waking up in the morning

 O God! My gratitude to You for showing me another new day!

You have given me another chance to sing your praise.

O God! Today this temple [body] opened at 6 o’clock [the time you wake up].

Let this temple be clean and pure throughout the day,

Grant me this blessing.

Let the bells that ring in this temple

help to increase the feeling of devotion in people.

Thank You for fulfilling my prayer.

2.       Prayer before having food

When you sit to have food, close your eyes for two minutes and bring in front of your eyes all those who were responsible for the food to reach you, and thank them.

Thank the farmer who cultivated the crops.

Thank nature, which provided water and sunlight.

Thank the person who sold the grains.

Thank the servant or family member

who brought the grains to your house.

Thank the person who prepared the food.

In the end, thank God, who gave you hunger

so that you can satisfy it

and experience the joy of gratification.

3.       Prayer before you sleep

O God! You made my day right and proper.

I could remain happy throughout the day.

Now let my night be excellent too.

For all the grace you have showered on us, Thank You!
