Everlasting Omnipresent Peace


Prayer/Study/Sacrifice 5

Thank You Aum.  Thank You Ra.  Thank You Gye Nyame.

Thank You Aum.  Thank You Ra. Thank You Gayatri.

Aum Tat Sat.  Aum Ra.  Namo Namaha.



 You are within and beyond the sun, moon, and the stars.  

Thank You for teaching us how to be beyond thought, 

and how to re-align with You.  This is how we  restore  our 

lower consciousness, consciously, to its former position of  

Eternal, Divine  Nature.  

We think to be restored to our Original, Eternal, Divine 

Nature is our greatest wealth.  It is the best blessing we 

can pass on to our children, the present, and future 


As far as we are concerned, that which is eternal is the only 

truly worthwhile pursuit for our thoughts, word, or deeds.

We think of You as the Eternal Loving Presence pervading 

and beyond all Sentient Beings.  Through spiritual practices 

and Your Grace, You can be experienced as One's own 

Supreme Reality.

The change in our value system entails seeing the self as 

eternal spirit, consciousness, awareness, or energy, rather 

than as temporary body, mind, intellect, or ego.   We think of 

You as Eternal, Supreme Being, Consciousness, Awareness, 

or Energy.  The Source of all that be.

We meditate on You as our Supreme Consciousness, Most 

Righteous, the Greatest Witness, and the Most Subtle.  You 

are within and beyond controller and controlled, and any 

species of life. 

Surely,  You, the Ultimate Goal of our assertions, are our 

Moral Connection with Spirituality, and the One who gives 

meaning and purpose to our life.  All of our activities are an 

humble offering to You.

We think of You as the Source of our conception of  

 Spirituality and Morality.  Surely, You are the Power behind 

and in front of our individual and social, spiritual and 

moral uplift.

We think of You as Supreme Being of Infinite Consciousness 

and Intelligence.  Thank You for helping us realize that the 

best learning comes when the students are educated based on 

a foundation based on a knowledge and devotion to You, 

Nature's Divinity.

 One of the main avenues from which this knowledge and 

devotion to You comes is the spiritual practice of prayer, 

study, and nonviolent sacrifice to You. We think of You as the 

Supreme Unity within the vast diversities of sentient 


Our prayer is thanking, praising, and offering all to You.  

Our study is centered in finding out the Truth about You.

Our nonviolent sacrifice consists of chanting Your Holy 

Names.  We meditate on You as the Witness of Silence,

 Stillness, and the Witness Ad infinitum. 

We think of You as the Unoriginate One, the Source and Pure 

Intelligence within all.  Thank You for teaching us knowledge 

of Self and how to realize it through prayer, study, and 

nonviolent sacrifice. 

We think we suffer because of our own Karma.  We continue 

to suffer until we come back into consciousness of You.  

We do this by engaging in a spiritual practice of purifying 

our consciousness and seeing the self as energy or spirit. 

The closer we return to consciousness with You, we are 

able to give up nonsense illusory attractions and reach 

exceedingly greater heights of culture and excellence.  We are 

able to do this by constant remembrance of You.

You, the One who pervades and transcends all feelings of all 

Sentient Beings, are the foundation of all awareness 

throughout the cosmic manifestation. You are Supernatural 

in all respects.  None can compare with Your Omnipresence, 

Omnipotent, and Omniscience.

Thank You for teaching us how to string together prayer, 

study, and sacrifice to You. This spiritual practice has 

survived the ravages of the elements, and of time itself.  

Moreover, it is proven to help us get ever closer to You.

"From where does this “I” arise? Seek for it within; it then 

vanishes. This is the pursuit of wisdom. When the mind 

unceasingly investigates its own nature, it transpires that 

there is no such thing as mind. This is the direct path for all. 

The mind is merely thoughts. Of all thoughts the thought “I” 

is the root." – Ramana Maharshi

Moreover, we know from experience that this spiritual 

practice of remembering You is definitely helping us return to 

harmony with You.  Through You, we are in harmony with 

the universe and all within it.

“Inner silence is not just the absence of thoughts. No! Silence 

is the blossoming of our indomitable inner will. Silence is our 

inner wisdom-light.”

— Sri Chinmoy

Of all structural bodies, You are the keel. Of guides, You are 

the Supreme Helsman, Pilot, Co-pilot and Steward. Thank 

You for allowing us the intelligence to choose You and Your 

Most Righteous Will, The Way of Peace. 

You, the Most Holy and Wise, pervade and transcend the 

oceans, the air, the original primeval sound, the most 

subtle vibrations, and the Original "I" thought.  Truly, You 

are the Original and last Witness of the Original "I" thought.

We think of You as the Source and Perpetuator of our unity 

and strength. Thank You for helping us to always remember 

You through prayer, study, and nonviolent sacrifice.  This 

practice helps us associate with You, contemplate You and 

unite with You evermore.

You are within and beyond the five temporary material 

elements from which this body is made.  All things and being, 

including the illusory mind, intelligence, and ego are within 

Your permanence, and Your permanence is within them. 

While Your permanence is within all, simultaneously It is 

eternal and infinitely beyond all.  Thank You for helping us 

regain the will and intelligence to wake up and help our self 

in the best way.  This is done by always thinking of You.

Always thinking of You cleanses our consciousness.  As this 

happens, our dormant will and intelligence shines through, 

dispelling the clouds of ignorance.  The greatest ignorance is 

ignorance is ignorance of  Self.  Thank You for showing us 

how to know and master "Me" by always thinking of You.

We think of You as Supreme Intelligence and enlightenment, 

within and beyond the consciousness and the elements from 

which the body is made. The five material elements from 

which this body is made are:  Earth, water, fire, air, and 


We think of You as the primordial energy, the Most Subtle  

Life Force, the Prana.  All things and beings are within You 

yet, simultaneously, You are infinitely outside and 

infinitely beyond their temporary nature.

"Meditation is not something that should be done in a 

particular position at a particular time. It is an awareness 

and an attitude that must persist throughout the day."

– Annamalai Swami

All praise to You, Most Merciful and Completely Generous 

One. Thank You for Your ceaseless mercy upon us. Thank 

You for showing us that forgetfulness of You leaves us 

ignorant and disunited with ourselves and others.

  Thank You for showing us that remembering You leads us 

forward to wisdom, enlightenment, unity, and familyhood 

with all Sentient Beings.  We think of You as the Be All in All, 

the Totality of the Consciousness in and of all.

We think of You as the Most Pure.  Thank You for showing us 

the benefits of always thinking of You.  Thinking of You, we 

associate with You.  Associating with You our consciousness is 

purified.  The more our consciousness is purified, the more 

we can love You with all our body, mind, intellect, and might.

Thank You for encouraging us in our humble efforts to always

remember You.  
As a result of always studying about You, 

praying to You, and making our nonviolent sacrifices to You, 

we are rising in boldness, and strength, taking responsibility 

for our condition, the results of our own Karma

We think of You as the Source of  "Others." 

 "They," whether "They" be persons, places, events, or 

circumstances, are simply instruments, Your various 

disguises, through which our Karma, our own doings, 

has come back to us.  We are reaping what we have done in 

thoughts, words, and deeds.

"In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer 

light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into 

crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after 

Truth."– Mahatma Gandhi

You are The Supreme Teacher, Ruler and Most Righteous 

Guide. Awakening our dormant love for You by always 

studying about You is resuscitating us to our original Pure 


This resuscitation is uniting with our Self.  We must unite 

with our self before we can truly unite with anyone else. The 

ultimate goal of all we think, feel, will, say and 

do as an offering, a sacrifice, to You, is for conscious union 

with You.

                                                                                  Isha Upanishad

 We think of You as the Supreme, Pure, Consciousness of  all. 

This is the Source of our virtue, vigor, compassion.  Our 

grace, mercy, patience, perseverance, zeal, and will are all 

 rooted and grounded in You.  

Surrendering all to You is one of the means we are utilizing to 

accomplish our end, which is union with You.  We think of 

You as our Eternal Friend, Companion, Guide, and Divine 


  "Meditation is listening to the Divine within." – Edgar Cayce

You, Divine Providence, are the All Attractive One. When we 

are constantly thinking of You we gradually realize our 

original fulfillment and peace.  When we associate with You 

and are purified, we can love You with all our might.  Then 

we can love others as we love ourselves.

Awakening and experiencing the reality of You, we cease 

running from one illusory thing to the next, thinking that the 

next sense pleasure will surely bring freedom, justice, joy and 

fulfillment. Thank You for showing us how to get out of 

illusion and attain salvation.

As we remember You through our prayer, study, and 

sacrifice, our consciousness is being purified, expanded, and 

we are behaving in a more polite, even-tempered, and self-

controlled manner.  Thank You for passing down a message 

that is setting us free from desire and egoism.

When we meditate, we come to the Silence of Consciousness.  

Sometimes we might have to use Mantras or breathing 

techniques to clear thoughts out of consciousness and bring It 

back back to the Crystal Silence of Pure Consciousness. 

We meditate on You by being conscious of You as the Silence, 

Stillness, and the Awareness of all.  When we do this often,

 we actually reenter our natural state of consciousness 

which is increasingly calm, still, and silent, free from 


We thank You for helping us to be fully aware of the arrival

a uninvited thought inside our consciousness.  That one 

thought, if not driven out and neutralized by thoughts of 

You, will invite other uninvited thoughts, related and 


Those related and unrelated thoughts will invite their 

associates into our naturally pure and quiet consciousness.   

  Before long they will be a mob in our consciousness 

wreaking havoc.

With the gathering of the mob, quickly, our otherwise pure 

consciousness is polluted with random, uncontrolled, more or 

less, unedifying,  uncontrolled, thoughts.  Always thinking of 

You solves this very serious problem. 

Remembering You purifies the consciousness by filling it with 

thoughts of You, the Most Pure One.  Gradually, our 

consciousness is cleansed of the mob and returns to Its 

original Purity and Peace. 

The more we think of You, we are purified and strong enough 

to resist, drive out, and keep out, any unedifying thoughts, 

from our consciousness.  We think of You as our Balm in 

Gilead that makes the wounded whole, our Balm in Gilead 

that heals the sin sick soul.  
                                                                               Jeremiah 8:22

Gradually, the more we fill our consciousness with 

remembrance of You, we are able to experience nothing other 

than the natural Peace, Stillness, and Awareness of our Pure


 Deep within the Stillness of Pure Consciousness we 

 we experience our Eternal Pure, ever Blissful Existence.  We 

meditate on You as Silence, Existence, and the Omnipresent 

Peace of Now.

We are at ever greater peace with ourselves and our worlds 

by applying this spiritual practice of always remembering 

You. Thank You for accepting our humble offerings of 

praise and thanksgivings.  

Thank You for revealing to us this method of remembering 

You.  Thus we are using our higher Self to raise our lower self 

from a more or less savage and barbaric nature back to 

Divine consciousness and You.

We think of You as predominating all genders and levels of 

awareness. The closer we come back to You, the greater our 

unity with each other.  Gradually we experience the fact that 

there is no other.  There is only You, the Source of the 

awareness of all.

The illusion does not exist.  Having no independence, it has  

no endurance, it comes and goes. You are the One True, 

Pure Consciousness.  The only reality, watching the comings

 and goings of the temporary existence is You, all else is 


We meditate on You as Silence, Awareness, Eternal Stillness.  

As we do this, thoughts dissolve out of our consciousness, 

leaving it pure, inside of in eternal pure awareness or pure 

consciousness.  Thank You for helping us experience our 

Divine Destiny. 

We did not know we were such diseased sin-sick souls until we

realized we were not the material body.  We are the eternal 

soul, the knower of the body.  Our struggle is to be completely 

free of the material disease by always remembering You. This 

is real freedom, spiritual freedom, consciously in union with 

You again

Through meditation one discovers one’s own light. That light 

we can call Soul, Self, Allah, Brahman, Gye Nyame, God, 

Divinity, whatsoever word we chooseowe can "just remain 

silent because it has no name.  It is a  a nameless experience, 

tremendously beautiful, ecstatic, utterly silent," but it gives 

us "the taste of eternity, of timelessness, of something beyond 


– Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

This Pure Consciousness and the Awareness that observes It 

is without objectification.  It is knowing without thoughts, 

Subject without object.  When we are thinking of You, and 

 purifying our consciousness we are gradually returning to 

our Infinity of Pure Awareness.  Thank You for helping 

us think of You and rise out of the wretchedness of
