Prayer to God

3355683652?profile=original

O Sustainer of the universe, O Commiserator of the afflicted, O Purifier of the fallen, O Almighty Lord, O Befriender of the meek, O Narayana, O Hari, have mercy on me. Be gracious to me. O Inner Controller of all, you are well known in the world by the epithet 'Ocean of mercy'. Hence it is but natural for you to shower Your grace on me.

O Lord, if You enjoy the title of 'Purifier of the fallen', be good enough to appear before me at least once. Prostrating myself before You again and again, I implore You to bless me with Your sight. O Lord! Other than You in this world there is none whom I call my own. Be pleased, therefore, to show Your countenance to me, to reveal Yourself before me. Tantalise me no more. You go by the name of Visvambhara( Sustainer of the universe). Why, then, do You not grant my hope? By showing grace to me Your stock of mercy will not grow less in any measure. An iota of Your mercy is capable of redeeming the whole world. On what account is it, then, for You to redeem an insignificant creature like me? If You take into account the record of my doings, there can be no hope whatsoever of my being freed from the trammels of mundane existence. Therefore, recall Your own title of 'Patita-Pavana' (The purifier of the fallen) and bless this insignificant creature with Your sight. I know nothing either of Devotion or of Yoga or of any ritual by virtue of which I may hope to be blessed with Your sight. Be pleased, therefore, O Lord! To manifest Yourself before me but once.
