Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the “Rig Veda”. This month’s spiritual devotion within these sacred scriptures is taking place between May 1 – May 31, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, As I am in a new life cycle, I know where my passions lie, and I seek these passions continually. As I set forth on the path of this new nine-year cycle, I know where I am going. And I know from where I have arrived. I am exceedingly excited on this new path, this new beginning. I am at harvest, and the fruits of my labor are glorious. Thank You infinitely for all of this. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“HYMN XXXIX. Indra.
1. To Indra from the heart the hymn proceedeth, to him the Lord, recited, built with praises;
The wakening song sung forth in holy synod: that which is born for thee, O Indra, notice.
2 Born from the heaven e’en in the days aforetime, wakening, sting aloud in holy synod,
Auspicious, clad in white and shining raiment, this is the ancient hymn of our forefathers.
3 The Mother of the Twins hath borne Twin Children: my tongue’s tip raised itself and rested silent.
Killing the darkness at the light’s foundation, the Couple newly born attain their beauty.
4 Not one is found among them, none of mortals, to blame our sires who fought to win the cattle.
Their strengthener was Indra the Majestic he spread their stalls of kine the Wonder-Worker.
5 Where as a Friend with friendly men, Navagvas, with heroes, on his knees he sought the cattle.
There, verily with ten Daśagvas Indra found the Sun lying hidden in the darkness.
6 Indra found meath collected in the milch-cow, by foot and hoof, in the cow’s place of pasture.
That which lay secret, hidden in the waters, he held in his right hand, the rich rewarder.
7 He took the light, discerning it from darkness: may we be far removed from all misfortune.
These songs, O Soma-drinker, cheered by Soma, Indra, accept from thy most zealous poet.
8 Let there be light through both the worlds for worship: may we be far from most overwhelming evil.
Great woe comes even from the hostile mortal, piled up; but good at rescue are the Vasus.
9 Call we on Maghavan, auspicious Indra, best Hero in the fight where spoil is gathered,
The Strong, who listens, who gives aid in battles, who slays the Vṛtras, wins and gathers riches.”
This completes our one-month spiritual devotion within the “Rig Veda”. I attribute this spiritual devotion to Yeshua, as this month’s path within these scriptures was inspired by Him. I am deeply grateful to have taken part in this experience, and I extend this gratitude to all. Amen.
