Shri Datta Swami

Posted on: 06 Apr 2021


Can You please prescribe a prayer which my students can recite daily?

[An online spiritual discussion was conducted on March 06, 2021, in which several devotees participated. Some of the questions of devotees answered by Swāmi are given below.]

[Smt. Sudha Rani asked: Padanamaskaram Swami! Thank you, Swami, for every help I have been receiving from my birth till date. Actually, You were my real helper in all of my past births and You are going to help me in all my future births too. Thank You so much for all of that.

As a language teacher also explain dharma to my students. Swami, can You please give a suitable hymn which I can pass on to my students for their daily prayers?]

Swāmi replied: The following hymn has been spontaneously composed by God Datta existing in Me to fulfil your desire:

Dharmapriyāya saṃsāre,
Dharmātītāya ca svayam,
Namaste Paramātmane.

This hymn salutes to God (Paramātman) and its meaning is given below:

In the world You always like justice.
Yet, You are beyond justice and injustice;
You are indeed greater than justice.
You are unimaginable by Yourself;
Yet, You become imaginable and visible;
By merging with an external body or medium.
My salutations to You, O absolutely-real God.
