प्रातः स्मरामि भवभीतिहरं सुरेशम्
गङ्गाधरं वृषभवाहनमम्बिकेशम् ।
Many posts in this blog were written by other authors on different forums, and were not contributed to this blog. I have collected a few that I found interesting, and they are linked back to the original source.
At present, most of these posts are taken from Narasimha Rao’s public posts on facebook and the vedic-wisdom yahoo group. The complete archives of the vedic-wisdom mailing list (in the unix mbox format) can be downloaded from here.
This is a nice short स्तोत्र which takes 16 names of विष्णु and puts them into context. Though a few of the relationships are forced, most of them are natural.
औषधे चिंतयेद् विष्णुं भोजने च जनार्दनम् ।
शयने पद्मनाभं च विवाहे च प्रजापतिम् ॥
Amongst the varied sets of slokas popularly recited each morning are the पञ्चायतन प्रातः स्मरण slokas. These are a set of 3 slokas for each of the पञ्चायतन देवताः – i.e. सूर्य, गणेश, शिव, देवी and विष्णु. They are short and simple, and yet varied and expressive. The first of these follows.
प्रातः स्मरामि खलु तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यम्
रूपं हि मण्डलमृचोऽथ तनुर्यजूंषि ।
सामानि यस्य किरणाः प्रभवादिहेतुम्
