Prayer is one of the essential activities of our life.It is hard to believe the evolution of any culture/society without prayer.It is universal.Prayer takes us back to source of life.it is acting like a connecting bridge between our limited self and super consciousnesses.It is a bridge to the absolute,a way to connect with some thing greater,knowledgeable,more powerful then our individual self.
Prayers helps to release our ego,and realize us our limitation,ignorance and dependence.Prayers helps many ways,various medical scientists have found compelling evidence of the benefits of prayers,meditation and relaxation,on individuals who pray. Even the distant prayers also beneficial.
In the process of prayer Purity of our heart and faith is most important then our scholarly attitude. God/Ishwar or that higher self is not bother about your language,how much you know about rituals,how sophisticate ,lengthy and beautiful prayers you can make.Prayer must comes from your heart.Even a single meaning less word/sound from your heart is most important then you recite thousand mantra,prayers with out putting your heart,feelings.
God understand every things .He knows all the languages .Many children communicate with their mother without any meaningful word,sound.No one else can understand this kind of communication except Mother.When child cries in certain way only mother understand if child is hungry or have some pain or need to change dipper.In the same way the ultimate,absolute Mother(God /ishwar/super consciousness)knows about us even without speaking a single word.Just feel,have faith She knows every thing .our heart must pray not lips,nor head.Mother is hungry for our feelings She is always there to help, protect .
A simple prayer
God anything that is good for me you know .I am your child Guide and Direct me .
