Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the ancient Sanskrit texts of “The Rig Veda”. This month’s spiritual devotion to these sacred writings is taking place between May 1 – May 31, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Thank You for these enlightenments and re-enlightenments. As I awaken and enlighten, I know that I am awakened, yet enlightenment is a continual expansion. With awakening, there is no turning back. With enlightenment, there is always rebirth available — again and again. Thank You for this expansion. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed texts in my hands and opened them to reveal this passage:
“HYMN LXXII. Aśvins.
1. COME, O Nāsatyas, on your car resplendent, rich in abundant wealth of kine and horses.
As harnessed steeds, all our laudations follow you whose forms shine with most delightful beauty.
2 Come with the Gods associate, come ye hither to us, Nāsatyas, with your car accordant.
‘Twixt you and us there is ancestral friendship and common kin: remember and regard it.
3 Awakened are the songs that praise the Aśvins, the kindred prayers and the Celestial Mornings.
Inviting those we long for, Earth and Heaven, the singer calleth these Nāsatyas hither.
4 What time the Dawns break forth in light, O Aśvins, to you the poets offer their devotions.
God Savitar hath sent aloft his splendour, and fires sing praises with the kindled fuel.
5 Come from the west, come from the cast, Nāsatyas, come, Aśvins, from below and from above us.
Bring wealth from all sides for the Fivefold People. Preserve us evermore, ye Gods, with blessings.”
—THE RIG VEDA
It is within the devotion to these writings that I am present to my new becoming. I am ready to move forth in action. I love all people. This signifies a time to begin. This sets a leadership role. It is I who must accept this position. It is simple to accept love for all people. It is a challenge to accept leadership. And I am ready.
