Sweetest Mother of all mothers


Sweetest Mother of all mothers

A POEM OFFERED TO THE DIVINE MOTHER
SRI LALITHA DEVI

Ma, the Sweetest Mother of all mothers
What a folly of my mind
I offer not the flowers of the heart
Unto Thy lovely blessed lotus feet.

Ma, the Sweetest Mother of all mothers
What a folly of my mind
I chant not Thy loveliest Names
That can redeem all from the dismal world.

Ma, the Sweetest Mother of all mothers
What a folly of my mind
I hanker to indulge in all pleasures
Not basking in Thy self-sacrificing presence.

Ma, the Sweetest Mother of all mothers
I offer this tiny prayer at Thy Lotus Feet
To banish all thoughts and desires of the folly mind
Merging in Thy Eternal, Blissful, True, Blessed Self.

Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
