May I overcome all the impediments in my course. May the thread of my song be not cut before my life merges into the sea of love.
Guard me against all danger, O Lord. Accept me graciously, O King of kings.
Release me from all 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.
I 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, O Lord of Love.
--The Rig Veda, transl. Eknath Easwaran
