Spirituality 12 - O God! Let Me Be A Charitable Spirit
Let me be hale, hearty and healthy,
by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
Let me enjoy working to earn my bread,
Let me work with honesty and sincerity,
Let me be able to share whatever I possess!
O God! Let me be a loving, charitable spirit!
Only a healthy person can physically serve others,
Only a noble mind can share sorrows with others,
Only a generous heart can bestow valuables on others,
Only a noble heart can pour out sympathy on others,
O God! Make me a compassionate, charitable spirit!
Let me remove the impurities that still cling on to my body,
Let me remove the mental blocks that still persist,
Let me remove the clutter in my house to make space,
Let me remove all that is undesirable and unwanted
O God! Let me be a free, boundless, charitable spirit!
May I be able to use my hands for every good purpose!
May I be able to use my legs to tread a worthy path!
May I be able to talk with the sweet sound of wisdom!
May I be able to smile like the pretty flowers of my garden!
O God! May I become like the trees with a charitable spirit!
Let me be filled with love and love only!
Let me share my wealth with the poor around me!
Let me share my knowledge with all my students!
Let me learn and learn to give more and more!
O God! May I be able to recognise the good spirit in me!
