Prayer from Rig Veda

The Rig Veda

God Makes The Rivers To Flow



"God makes the rivers to flow. They tire not, nor do they cease from flowing. May the river of my life flow into the sea of love that is the Lord.


May I overcome all the impediments in my course. May the thread of my song be not cut before my life merges in the sea of love.

Guard me against all danger, O Lord. Accept me graciously, O King of kings.

Release me from my sorrows, which hold me as ropes hold a calf. I cannot even open my eyes without the power of your love.

Guard us against the grief that haunts the life of the selfish. Lead us from darkness into light.

We will sing of your love as it was sung of old. Your laws change not, but stand like the mountains.

Forgive me all the mistakes I have committed. Many mornings will dawn upon us again. Guide us through them all, O Lord of Love".

The Rig Veda contains the most ancient portions of the Hindu scriptures. Hymns, from which this selection has been chosen, make up the first part of each Veda; in the latter parts are found the Upanishads. (translation by Eknath Easwaran)
