Repentance Prayer

Om Parabrahma Parmatma

Ya Yazdan; La - illaha illallaha

Oh God Father in Heaven

We repent , O God Most Merciful, for all our sins;

For every thought that was false , unjust or unclean;

For every word that was spoken that ought not to have been spoken ;

For every deed done that ought not have been done ;

We repent for every deed and word and thought inspired by selfishness and for every deed and word and thought inspired by hatred.

We repent most especially for every lustful thought and every lustful action; for every lie; for all hypocrisy; for every promise given but not fulfilled; and for all slander and backbiting.

Most especially also, we repent for every action that has brought ruin to others; for every word and deed that has given others pain; and for every wish that pain should befall others.

In Your unbounded mercy we ask You to forgive us

O God, for all the sins committed by us and to forgive us for our constant failures to think and speak and act according to Your Will .

Australian Aarti

By Francis Brabazon

O glorious , eternal Ancient one

Your face is a bright transcendental Sun

Lighten this dark world and the tears I weep

My heart Meher I give to You to keep.

 

Creator yet creationless you are

Truth and Truth's Body Divine Avatar

Who through, compassion the three worlds maintains

Destroy this ignorance that life sustains.

 

These five lights are the whirling spokes of breath

Of the world's wheel that bears me unto Death

Unless you who are infinitely kind

Break the wheels hub which is conditioned mind.

 

This incense is my love these fruits my art

Which to please you I have shaped from my heart.

Accept them as you would a simple flower

That has no use beyond it's shining hour.

 

You are my Self I sing to you in praise

And beg your love to bear me through the days

Till you the Ever living Perfect One

Illume my darkness with your shining Sun.

 

American Aarti

By Hank Mindlin

 

How can we fathom your fathomless being?

How can we know you we see with gross eyes

A glimpse of your shadow has blinded our seeing

How can your Glory e'r be realized

Refrain

Thoughts cannot reach you and words cannot speak you

Infinite Ocean of unending bliss

Though we beseech you, how can we seek you?

How can the finite know limitlessness?

Refrain

At your command suns and stars give their light

What in the worlds can I offer as mine?

Even my gift of love would be naught in your sight

But veiled reflections of your love Divine

Refrain

You are the Ancient One Lord of creation,

How can we measure your true majesty ,

You are the Christ the Divine Incarnation

Dear Lord please Don't be indifferent to me .

Refrain

You are the beginning and end of all things ;

'Tis you alone who assumes every role

Sinners and saints, beggars and kings

You are the source and you are the goal

Refrain

How can we fathom your fathomless being?

How can we know you we see with gross eyes

A glimpse of your shadow has blinded our seeing

How can your Glory e'r be realized

 

Refrain

Consumed is my mind in your fire and flame ;

Accept it O Meher in Oneness

Consumed is my heart , in the sound of your name

Accept , O Meher my Aarti

Accept, O Meher my Song.
