children Lav and Kush always watched with wonder while their mother
SITA performed Pooja i.e. daily worship and prayers. She would sing
hymns to them while performing Pooja; hymns of love for God and hymns
of worldy knowledge as well. On one such occasion, she explains to
them about truthful labour and prosperity.
|| Prosperity ||
Some offer prayers,
Some try to be wise.
One who humbles himself
The Lord will be his.
Who can give anything,
Who can receive it?
The Lord Jagannath,
Everything is His.
He has given intellect,
Your deeds you mus purify,
When you can add value
Your wealth will multiply.
Jagannath:Means Lord of the world.
of Life ||
It is not too late even now,
Oh! My devotee beloved
To turn your steps
In the path of the Lord.
Source of the river is a pure spring
So also life starts as a pure being
When water gets muddied on its journey
With alum crystals you can render clear
If life be sinful by indiscretion,
With good deeds you can make it pure
