“You live what you create.”
Having an awesome day is one wish that we have almost every day. We desire that every moment should stay at the right place and we enjoy everything we do. We try to stay away from conflicts. Indeed, we all do deserve to be happy, and having a joyful day is our birthright. Here, I am sharing a simple and effective practice that brings positive energy to your day. The daily morning practice helps in creating exuberance and boosting high spirits. Let’s dig deeper!
What is it?
This easy practice includes a mantra (chant) combined with a hand gesture. I was grown up watching my parents doing the practice every morning. Lately, I started trying it myself. I went up into a troll of research behind the science of the mantra and included it in my daily routine. When I started to experience the joy and feel the vibes of a constructive day, I, thus, decided to share it with others.
Where it comes from?
The mantra is taken from Vishnu Purana, which is an ancient Vedic text of Hinduism. It is one of the Maha-Puranas that was the part of smriti literature of the Vedic period. Vishnu Purana is dedicated to Lord Vishnu who is part of the trinity in Hinduism that includes Bramha (the creator), Vishnu (the nurturer), and Mahesh (the destroyer).
Who can do it?
Since the mantra is taken from a Hindu Vedic text, nothing binds you to do it. However, you can perform this practice whether you belong to any gender, age group, ethnicity, or religion.
When is the right time?
It is to be done right away once you wake up in the morning. As soon as you get up, this is the first thing you do without stepping down from your bed. Afterward, resume your day.
Kar aagre vas-te Lakshmi,
Kar madhye Saraswati,
Kar moole tu Govinda,
Prabhaate kar dar-shanam.
Understanding the Mantra
The mantra mentions names of Goddess Lakshmi (bestower of wealth and wisdom) on agre (front/top), Goddess Saraswati (bestower of knowledge, education, music) on madhye (middle), and Lord Govinda (bestower of stability and prosperity) on mool (base/bottom) on your kar (hands). Prabhate means morning. Lastly, darshanam refers to seeing with reverence. Altogether it means, In the morning I see my hands to rever Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Saraswati, and Lord Govinda who reside on the top, middle, and bottom of my hands.
The Morning Practice
- When you get up, sit with your eyes open. Relax.
- Join both your palms facing upward.
- Now visualize Goddess Lakshmi on the top of your hands (tips of your pinkie fingers).
- In the middle, visualize Goddess Saraswati (near the lines forming semi-circle).
- At the bottom, visualize Lord Govinda (Lord Vishnu).
- Now, chant the mantra thrice or eleven times.
- Keep focusing on your palms while chanting. Feel the shifting vibrations within.
- Once finished fold your hands and thank the divine powers together.
- Resume your day as usual.
How the practice benefits you?
- Fulfillment of daily funds and knowledge.
- You stay grounded.
- Increases your daily productivity.
- Ideas flow to your mind naturally.
- Boosts your creativity.

- You learn to work wisely.

The daily morning practice gradually transforms into everlasting wisdom, wealth, and prosperity. Do thank you for the daily changes you observe in your life. More is the observation and gratitude larger are the results.
P.S. A little practice goes a long way.
