Sarveshaam svastir bhavatu, Sarveshaam shaantir bhavatu
Sarveshaam poornam bhavatu, Sarveshaam mangalam bhavatu.

Let all beings become auspicious, let peace prevail on all.
Let full satisfaction prevail on all, let goodness prevail on all.

Kaayena vaachaa manasendriyairvaa
Buddhyaatmana vaa prakriteh svabhaavat;
Karomi yadyat sakalam parasmai
Naaraayanaayeti samarpayaami.

Whatever activities I perform with my body, speech, mind, senses, intellect or my inner nature, I offer them all to the Supreme Lord Naarayana.

Sarasvati Vandanaa
Sarasvati namastubhyam, varade kaama roopini;
Vidyaarambham karishyaami, siddhir bhavatu me sadaa.

Oh! Goddess Sarasvati, my prostrations to You. You are the fulfiller of all wishes. I am beginning my studies, please grant me Thy blessings.

Invocation Mantras
Karpoora gauram karunaavataaram, Sansaara saaram bhujagendrahaaram
Sadaa vasantam hridayaar vrinde, Bhavam Bhavaani sahitam namaami

Oh! Lord Shiva, who has camphor like fair complexion, who is an incarnation of compassion, who is the essence of this universe, who wears a garland of snakes, please reside in the lotus of my heart. To You and Your consort Bhavaani (Paarvati) I humbly prostrate.

Gaayatri Mantra
Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha, Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimayi, Dhiyo yo naa prachodayaat

This Mantra is dedicated to God in the form of the Divine Mother. Her name in this mantra is Gaayatri. She is Goddess Gaayatri. As the Divine Mother she is the bestower of peace, prosperity and spiritual well-being. All children at the age of 8 or 9 or10 are initiated into this mantra.

This mantra means, I meditate and call upon the effulgent Cosmic Mother, who has created the universe comprising of the three planes of existence—the physical, the astral and the causal. She is fit to be loved, respected , adored and worshipped. May She purify and enlighten my intellect.
