Daily Meditation: Show Us The Way

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a poem by 12th century female Hindu poet Mahadeviyakka, included in The Little Book of Prayers. Her piece is a reminder that we all lose our way at times, but we may still recover the path.

Cut through, O lord,

my heart's greed,

and show me

your way out.

O lord white as jasmine.

After this body has known my lord

who cares if it feeds

a dog

or soaks up water?

Like an elephant

lost from his herd

suddenly captured,

remembering his mountains,

his Vindhyas,

I remember.

O lord white as jasmine

show me

your ways.

Call me: Child, come here,

come this way.
