To gain full benefit from your devotional practice, you should always feel the presence of your guru and God by your side as sakshi (all-pervading) and antaryami (pervading the inner self) ...
Prarthana, The Prayer Book, contains the daily prayer and arati, including those written by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, that are sung every morning and evening in the spiritual centres of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat. The translation of each prayer is first presented in full as poetry and then in Hindi, line-by-line, with the English transliteration and meaning directly underneath each line.
Each obeisance is a complete work and encapsulates the true meaning of spirituality. Collectively, they act as a reminder to the spiritual aspirant of the gratitude and humbleness he should feel towards his guru, worshipable deity and the sacred abodes. Sung joyfully with loving meditation, each bhakti song is an integral part of an aspirant's devotional life.
On auspicious occasions such as Janmashtami, Radhashtami and Ram Navami there are other arati's performed to Shri Krishna, Shri Radha and Lord Ram, and so these have also been included. A rarity in this publication is the inclusion of Kripaluji s own guidelines for practicing bhakti, a priceless guide to be followed routinely if you desire to give your devotion meaning and reap the full benefit of meditation.
