Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the “Rig Veda”. This month’s spiritual devotion to these ancient sacred texts will take place between May 1 – May 31, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Thank You for leading me to take leaps of faith, day by day. I am eternally grateful for my faith. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I meditated within the ancient Sanskrit text and opened it to reveal this passage:
“HYMN XXXIX Maruts.
1 WHEN thus, like flame, from far away, Maruts, ye cast your measure forth,
To whom go Ye, to whom, O shakers of the earth, moved by whose wisdom, whose design?
2 Strong let your weapons be to drive away your foes, firm for resistance let them be.
Yea, passing glorious must be your warrior might, not as a guileful mortal’s strength.
3 When what is strong ye overthrow, and whirl about each ponderous thing,
Heroes, your course is through the forest trees of earth, and through the fissures of the rocks.
4 Consumers of your foes, no enemy of yours is found in heaven or on the earth:
Ye Rudras, may the strength, held in this bond, be yours, to bid defiance even now.
5 They make the mountains rock and reel, they rend the forest-kings apart.
Onward, ye Maruts, drive, like creatures drunk with wine, ye, Gods with all your company.
6 Ye to your chariot have yoked the spotted deer: a red deer, as a leader, draws.
Even the Earth herself listened as ye came near, and men were sorely terrified.
7 O Rudras, quickly we desire your succour for this work of ours.
Come to us with your aid as in the days of old, so now for frightened Kaṇva’s sake.
8 Should any monstrous foe, O Maruts, sent by you or sent by mortals threaten us,
Tear ye him from us with your power and with your might, and with the succours that are yours.
9 For ye, the worshipful and wise, have guarded Kaṇva perfectly.
O Maruts, come to us with full protecting help, as lightning flashes seek the rain.
10 Whole strength have ye, O Bounteous Ones; perfect, earth-shakers, is your might.
Maruts, against the poet’s wrathful enemy send ye an enemy like a dart.”
My relationship with God was my first calling, which continues throughout my life. My continued calling was my relationship with my family, which continues throughout my life. My further continued calling was Prophecy and Intercessory Prayer, which continues throughout my life. My further continued calling was “The Biggest Audience”, which continues throughout my life, yet has a stated completion within this lifetime. And my further continued calling is writing and communication, which continues throughout my life. I am deeply grateful for these callings. And I am within them. I am within God. I am within family. I am within prophecy and intercessory prayer. I am within “The Biggest Audience”. And I am within writing and communication. Amen. Satnam. Namaste.
