  • Prayers

    कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मीः करमध्ये च सरस्वती ।
    करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥

    In this prayer three parts of the palms are identified with three deities. Is there a logic behind which deity at which part of the palm ? It seems, there is !

    • लक्ष्मीः is the goddess of wealth. She is assigned the position at tips of fingers. Whatever one would hve at the tips of fingers would be more readily given away. That is how it should be for wealth to be acquired. It should be given away ! Philanthropy adorns the hands !
    • Whatever is held at करमध्ये has quite some firmness in the hold.  सरस्वती is the deity of knowledge. It should better be held firmly. So करमध्ये च सरस्वती !
    • गोविन्दः is कृष्णः He reared cows in his childhood. Hence his name गोविन्दः ! Rearing cows denotes compassion and affection for the animal world. It is best done with patting. Patting is best done by करमूल | So करमूले तु गोविन्दः connotes compassion for the animal world, rather compassion even for the animal world, in turn compassion for all the living !
    • प्रभाते करदर्शनम् Having focused on the three parts of the hands meditating on the three deities in this manner, praying that urge for philanthropy, knowledge and compassion be cultivated over the day, take a wholesome look at both the hands, fold them together in prayer, rub them together and run the warmth all over the face. This will certainly arouse freshness ! That becomes good waking up, awakening !
