Prayers to sacred rivers of India
Manthra Manasika snana stotram
Om Ali Neela Ghana shyamam , nalinayatha lochanam , Smarami Pundarikaksham thena snatho bhavamyaham
Expression of wish: Om I meditate on God who is black like a dark blue cloud, Who has eyes similar to lotus and I want to be given a bath by him.
Ananthadhithya samkasam Vasudevam chathurbujam, Sankha chakra Gadha padma dharinam vana malinam, Shyamalam, Santha hrudayam , prasanna vadanam shubham, Divya chandana lipthangam charuhasam suveekshanam, Vanamala parivrutham Naradadhibhir architham,
That Vasudeva lying on Anantha shining like a sun, who has four hands , Who holds conch, wheel mace and lotus flower , Who wears forest garland, Who is black , who has a peaceful mind , Who has an auspicious pleasant face , Who is anointed with divine sandal paste, who has a pretty smile, who looks at you nicely , Who is surrounded by forest garlands, Who is worshipped by sage Narada and others,
Suvarna kanganai deeptham , kinkini bhi virajitham, Keyura harinam devam suvarna makutojwalam , Aneka rathna sanchanna sphuran makara kundalam , Dwaja Vajrangusa dharam pada padma sushobitham, That pada pankajath gangam pravahanthim swamoordhni, Chinthaye brahma randhrena pravisanthim swakam thanum, THaya samkshalaye deham bahyamabhyantharam malam, Anthar bahirschs sudhyarthambahyam abhyantharani cha.
Who shines wearing golden bangles, who also shines due to the bells, Who is the God with the crown and garland, which makes his head shine , Who wears the fish like ear globes made of several shining gems, Who carries the flag and a diamond goad and has a shining lotus like feet. And from his lotus feet flows the river Ganga from where it commences itself, Flowing of the aperture in the crown of Brahma it takes its own path. I am sprinkling her water on my body which is filled with dirt inside and outside With an aim of cleaning inside and outside of my body, I use it outside and inside. Manthram
Om Namashivaya Gangayai Shivadhayai Namo nama, Nama stripada gaminyai manthra moorthyai namo nama. Achyuthoham, ananthoham govindoham , aham hari, Anandoham, Aseshoham Ajoham Amruthasmyoham, Nithyoham Nirvikalpoham Nirakaroham avyaya , SAchidananda roopoham paripoornaasmyaham sadaa
Salutations and salutations Om Salutations to Shiva , Ganga and all that belongs to Shiva , Salutations to her who goes in three ways who is the lord of manthra, salutations and salutations, I am Achyutha, I am endless, I am Govinda, I am Hari, I am joy , I am everything, I am one who cannot be defeated, I am the deathlessness, I am forever, I am one who never wavers, I am shapeless and imperishable , I am the form of divine joy and I am always complete . Paribhasha (definition)
Ida Bhageerathi ganga , Pingala yamunathuthaa, Thayor madhye gathaa naadi sushmnakhyaa Saraswathi, Dhyanahrudhe jnana jale raga dwesha malapahe, Yo snathi manase theerthe sayathi parmam gathim.
The Ida Nadi is Ganga brought by Bageeratha , Pingala nadi is Yamuna, And Sushmna nadi which goes in between them is the Saraswathi , In the mind meditates dirts like desire and hatred about in the water of wisdom, And he who is able to take bath in that mind would attain the ultimate goal.
Phala sruthim : Idham mansika snanam proktham hariharadhibhi, SArdha trikoti theertheshu snanath koti gunadhikam, Yo nithyamachara devam savai narayana smrutha, Kala mruthyurathikramya jeevathyeva na samsaya.
Benefits : This mental bath which is addressed to Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva , Grants more benefits than bathing in half of three crores sacred waters, Those who practice it daily and then meditate on Narayana, Would outlive time and death and without doubt live.
Ithi Manthra manasika snana stotram sampoornam
Thus end the prayer of mental bath using the chants.
