Prayer and Meditation in Honor of Ravi Shankar

Prepare for this meditation by choosing a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. If the weather is pleasant, sit outdoors in a private spot.

Sit up straight on a cushion and fold your legs in, or if sitting on a chair, sit up as straight as possible and place the soles of your feet firmly on the floor or ground for balance.

Fold your hands in your lap or place them palms up or palms down on your thighs.

Begin even and regular breathing such as one count to breathe in and one count to breathe out. Continue this rhythmic and unstressed pattern throughout your meditation. Even breathing quiets and harmonizes body, mind and emotions, giving you a chance to rest into your essential nature.

Read the One with Nature Prayer out loud or silently. Repeat the prayer as you would a mantra until you feel at one within yourself and your surroundings.

One with nature
Ever we are
Traveling on silent wings
Near and far
One with all
People animals plants rocks
Ether water fire
Visions thoughts
Fabric of creation
Aspects of Divinity
Heart soul
One with Divinity.

~ Prayer by Susan Helene Kramer

This prayer is a good way to begin your daily spiritual practice. I recommend beginning each meditation with a prayer after you seat yourself. You could also memorize a portion of the prayer and use it as a calming mantra. I wrote the prayer on 12/12/12 inspired by the strong all-pervading energy of this day, with thoughts on the passing and life of Ravi Shankar.

Finish your meditation by taking a deep breath in and slowly releasing it. Keep in mind that we are ever one with each other in spirit and part of the universal family in the Divine.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
