Brahma's Prayer


Brahma said:

vavande devamīśānaṃ sarveśaṃ sarvagaṃ prabhum /
omīśāna namaste 'stu mahādeva namo 'stu te // LiP_1,16.6 //
namo 'stu sarvavidyānām īśāna parameśvara /
namo 'stu sarvabhūtānām īśāna vṛṣavāhana // LiP_1,16.7 //
brahmaṇo 'dhipate tubhyaṃ brahmaṇe brahmarūpiṇe /
namo brahmādhipataye śivaṃ me 'stu sadāśiva // LiP_1,16.8 //

Oṁ! O Īśāna, O Mahādeva!O Lord with the Bull as Your conveyance, obeisance be to You.O Lord of living beings, obeisance be to You.O Overlord of Brahmā, obeisance be to You.Obeisance to Brahman in the form of Brahmā.Obeisance to the Overlord of Brahmā. O Sadāśiva, may auspiciousness befall me.

oṅkāramūrte deveśa sadyojāta namonamaḥ /
prapadye tvāṃ prapanno 'smi sadyojātāya vai namaḥ // LiP_1,16.9 //
abhave ca bhave tubhyaṃ tathā nātibhave namaḥ /
bhavodbhava bhaveśāna māṃ bhajasva mahādyute // LiP_1,16.10 //


O Lord representing Oṁkāra in the physical form, obeisance be to You!I resort to You! I have resorted to Sadyojāta. Obeisance to Sadyojāta.Obeisances to the Unborn; the Source of [all] birth,And who is beyond the worldly existence. O Bhava, O Īśāna, O Source of the worlds,O Deity of great luster, bless me.

vāmadeva namastubhyaṃ jyeṣṭhāya varadāya ca /
namo rudrāya kālāya kalanāya namo namaḥ // LiP_1,16.11 //
namo vikaraṇāyaiva kālavarṇāya varṇine /
balāya balināṃ nityaṃ sadā vikaraṇāya te // LiP_1,16.12 //


O Vāmadeva, obeisance to You,The eldest Being [Jyeṣṭha], O Granter of all boons.Obeisance to Rudra, to Kāla, the Reckoner of time.Obeisance to the Lord as the mind,To the Lord dark in hue,To the Lord as a religious Student,To the Lord as the Strength in the strong,And to the Lord devoid of organs and their function.

balapramathanāyaiva baline brahmarūpiṇe /
sarvabhūteśvareśāya bhūtānāṃ damanāya ca // LiP_1,16.13 //
manonmanāya devāya namastubhyaṃ mahādyute /
vāmadevāya vāmāya namastubhyaṃ mahātmane // LiP_1,16.14 //
jyeṣṭhāya caiva śreṣṭhāya rudrāya varadāya ca /
kālahantre namastubhyaṃ namastubhyaṃ mahātmane // LiP_1,16.15 //


Obeisance to the Suppressor of bala,To the strong One, O form of Brahman.Obeisance to the Overlord, the Suppressor of living beings.Obeisance to the Lord, the Impeller of the mind,Obeisance to the Lord of great luster,Obeisance to the refulgent Vāmadeva,And to the Supreme Soul.Obeisance to the Eldest and the Greatest,Obeisance to Rudra, the Bestower of boons.Obeisance to You, the Slayer of Kāla.Obeisance to You possessed of noble soul.


Liṅga Purāṇa I.16.6-15
