Navaratra

Prayers without Words

      — by Swami Veda Bharati:

Why are these verses not prayers?

The words are called prayer,
        
but my Divine Mother, my God, is beyond words.
If I say, “I love you,” I love not.
Where feelings overwhelm the senses, there words cease to be.
Only an awareness remains.
Such awareness is meditation, a prayer without words.

A deep wave of peace comes over me in the knowledge that I,
       
a little ring, am part of the cosmic gold.
This, the ring's love for its gold origin is my love for God.

My spark of awareness knows that it came from the same fire of
       
consciousness from which emanate all the stars of the night.
I grow and glow in the knowledge of that majestic peace;
       that is my prayer; the prayer of my innermost being radiating
       in the light of meditation.

Are these verses, then not, a prayer?

Editor’s Note:

A Navaratra Devi-Puja was celebrated 8th - 15th April 2016 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG). 

Swami Veda Bharati has written about these times:

“The 9 sacred days dedicated to Divine Mother... We will have non-stop recitations of the thousand names of Divine Mother and you may come sit and enjoy silence.”

and

“…These events are charged with special spiritual energy and a very special time to renew your silence and sadhana.”

The next Navaratra Devi-Puja at SRSG will be 1st - 10th October 2016. To inquire about accommodations:http://ahymsin.org/main/accommodations-inquiry.html
