Neeb Karori Baba MaharajjiO Ocean of Compassion! Lord of all beings! In my heart I offer you a throne studded with precious stones, a bath of cool water, divine robes adorned with many gems, saffron-scented sandal paste, jasmine and champaka flowers, bilva leaves, rare incense, and a shining flame. Kindly accept them.

O God! Kindly accept ghee, sweet rice in a golden bowl inlaid with nine gems, the nectar made from the five edibles including milk, yogurt, bananas, fresh water made fragrant with many herbs, camphor, and betel leaf - all prepared in my heart with devotion.

O Almighty Lord, please accept these objects of worship created in my heart for you: an umbrella, two yak tail fans, a spotless mirror, a vina, kettledrums, a mridanga and other instruments accompanying it, songs and dances, full prostrations filled with reverence, and many kinds of hymns.

You are the soul. The goddess Parvati is my buddhi [reason/mind]. My five pranas are your attendants. My body is your abode. All the objects of sense pleasures are for your worship. My sleep is your state of samadhi. Wherever I walk I am walking around you. Everything I say is in praise of you. Everything I do is in devotion to you O benevolent Lord!

Whatever sins I have committed with my hands, feet, ears, eyes, body or mind, whether prohibited by the scriptures or not, whether prescribed by destiny or arbitrary, or due to past karma, please forgive them all. Jai! Jai! O Ocean of Compassion! O Great God! O Benevolent Lord!
