From the Unreal lead me unto the Real,
From Darkness lead me unto Light,
From Death lead me unto Life External..
- Vishva Bandhu

I Need Cleansing and Purification of Thoughts and actions
I have many failings and Weaknesses
May The Enlighted One help me cleanse and purify my Body and Soul,
My mind and Intellect, my Words and Actions.
O Lord, Make me Pious and Pure....
- Yajurveda 19.
