Before I meditate

My Supreme Lord,
Before I meditate on You
To destroy my uncomely, unaspiring
And undivine thought-world,
May I meditate on You
To grant me a pure, progressive
And promising thought-world,
May I?


My Supreme Lord,
Before I meditate on You
To grant me a pure, progressive
And promising thought-world,
May I meditate on You
To completely silence my thought-world,
May I?


My Supreme Lord,
Before I meditate on You
To completely silence my thought-world,
May I meditate on You
To grant me,
Out of Your boundless Bounty,
An adamantine will-world,
May I?


My Supreme Lord,
Before I meditate on You
To grant me an adamantine will-world,
May I meditate on You
To richly bless me
With an unalloyed, unreserved
And unconditional surrender-world,
May I?
