The  following three longer shlokas (not only for children, but also for all of us) are a form of very intense prayer, whenever one faces any of the following situations:

  1. We are confused about what to do, what is right and what is wrong;

  2. We do not understand some teaching, either in class or elsewhere;

  3. We are overwhelmed with anger or hate and we want to get out of that state; and

  4. We are overcome by intense grief due to causes, self-made,  man-made or otherwise!  OR

  5. We are dazed with a divine marvel!

It is the poor spirit in me which has deprived me of my true nature; my mind is totally confused about what is right and what is wrong. Please tell me decisively what is good for me. I am your disciple; please accept my surrender and bless me!

 24.  त्वमक्षरं परमं वेदितव्यं त्वमस्य विश्वस्य परं निधानम्।

த்வமக்ஷரம் பரமம் வேதிதவ்யம்

த்வமஸ்ய விஶ்வஸ்ய பரம் நிதானம் /

த்வமவ்யயஶ்-ஶாஶ்வத-தர்ம-கோப்தா

ஸநாதனஸ்த்வம் புருஷோ மதோ மே //

You are Imperishable; You are the Supreme to be known; You are the ultimate support for all this universe. You are the  protector of the eternal Dharma. I deem You to be the unborn everlasting Being.

SPECIAL NOTE TO CHILDREN: The statement 'You are the ultimate support for the entire universe’  (tvamasya vishvasya paraM nidhAnaM) has to be explained a little.  God is the support for the universe.  What does this mean? It does not mean that God is lifting the Universe on His head or shoulders. I shall give you two examples to tell you what ‘support’ means here.

All of us have seen the ocean and its waves.  Now what is the ‘support’ for the waves?  The physical support is of course the ocean.  But there is something more that is meant here. Without the ocean, waves cannot exist. Waves exist because of the ocean.  It is in this sense that God is the support for us and the universe.  Without God, we or the universe cannot exist.  This is what is meant by ‘You are the ultimate support for the entire universe’.

Second example. We have all seen movies.  Movies are seen on the screen.  Without a screen, there cannot be any movies. The screen may be a real cloth screen or maybe a computer screen or a cell phone screen.  But a screen has to be there for the movies to exist and be seen.  God is the screen. We and the universe are all movies on that God-screen.  Without the God-screen none of us or the universe can exist.  So just as the screen is the ultimate support for the movies, God is the ultimate support for the entire universe.

25..  त्वमादिदेवः पुरुषः पुराणः त्वमस्य विश्वस्य परं निधानम्।

वेत्तासि वेद्यं च परं च धाम त्वया ततं विश्वमनन्तरूपम्॥

 

tvamAdidevaH purushhaH purANaH tvamasya vishvasya paraM nidhAnam .

vettAsi vedyaM ca paraM ca dhAma tvayA tataM vishvamanantarUpam .. (B.G. XI – 38)

த்வமாதிதேவ ஃ புருஷ ஃ புராணஹ

த்வமஸ்ய விஶ்வஸ்ய பரம் நிதானம் \

வேத்தாஸி வேத்யம் ச பரம் ச தாம 

த்வயா ததம் விஶ்வமனந்தரூப \\

You are the most  ancient Lord, the primal Spirit, the supreme abode of the universe. You are the Knower and also the Object to be known, You are the Ultimate Transcendental One; Oh Being of Infinite forms, You pervade the entire universe.

ADDITIONAL NOTE TO CHILDREN:Here the mention about infinite forms  needs some explanation. ‘anantarUpa’ means Infinite number of forms.  This is one of the most fundamental truths of Hinduism.    God is only one.  There is no second opinion throughout the Hindu religion.  But that One Absolute God, appears and manifests in multifarious forms.  He is Vishnu, He is Shiva, He is Vinayaka, He is Subrahmanya, He is the  same one who appears also in female forms like Lakshmi, Parvati, Saraswati, etc.  Some people  do not understand this truth of Hinduism. They ask ‘Why do you have so many Gods?’, How can there be so many Gods? And so on.  A good answer was once given by Kanchi Maha Periava. Suppose you had in your photo album, photos of your father, one in his office dress, one in his swimming suit, one in his pyjamas, one in his veshti worn in a traditional orthodox way, one in his shorts, which he wears when  he is gardening,  and one in a female dress in which he was acting in a drama… and so on in several dresses.  Your friend  visits you and sees this album. You tell him: All these are my father’s photos.  Suppose he asks you: ‘Do you have so many fathers?’.  Is it not a totally  absurd question? So also is the question ‘Do you have so many gods?’. There is only one God Absolute.  For various purposes He appears in various forms.  Not only the well-known forms of Vishnu and Shiva.  He appears sometimes as a man-lion, sometimes as an ordinary man, sometimes as a boar or a pig or a fish, each time there is a purpose. That is why Arjuna says in this shloka ‘tvayA tatam vishvam anantarupa’.  Hey, God with infinite forms, You have pervaded this entire world. In fact it has more meanings.  Whatever you see in the world, -- a tree, a mountain, an animal, anything, it is all God’s manifestation only.  This is the greatness of Hindu religion. God is in everything, more, Everything is God.  Even more, there is nothing else but God!

Another important fact from this shloka is: knower and the known are both God. In fact, everything is God. Subject and object are both God. The seer (one who sees) and the seen are both God. The One God manifests as everything.

Those who remember and think of Anjaneya are blessed with Intelligence, Strength, Fame, Courage, Fearlessness, Good Health, Alertness and Talent for Speech. 

27. मयि मेधां मयि प्रजां मय्यग्निस्तेजो दधातु
मयि मेधां मयि प्रजां मयीन्द्र इन्द्रियं दधातु
मयि मेधां मयि प्रजां मयि सूर्यो भ्राजो दधातु॥

Mayi medhAM mayi prajAM mayyIndriya indriyaM  daDhAtu

Mayi medhAM mayi prajAM mayi sUryo bhrAjo  daDhAtu //

மயி மேதாம் மயி ப்ரஜாம் மய்யக்நிஸ்தேஜோ ததாது

மயி மேதாம் மயி ப்ரஜாம் மய்யீந்த்ர இந்த்ரியம் ததாது

மயி மேதாம் மயி ப்ரஜாம்  மயிஸூர்யோ ப்ராஜோ ததாது //

May agni, the Fire-God, bestow on me his brilliance with Intelligence and descendents; May Indra, the King of the divines, bestow on me well-kept senses, intelligence and descendents; and may the Sun-God, bestow on me His enlightenment, intelligence and descendents.

SPIRITUAL ARMOUR OF SHLOKAS FOR CHILDREN

I am glad to announce to you all that the video-recording of the teaching of the 27 shlokas, constituting a spiritual armour, to the Purva Fairmont children is now on the youtube, (by the courtesy of  ADVAITA ACADEMY) for the children of the whole world to watch and learn. Here is the link:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ld-A2RsyFbM&list=PL8k2h_FgLow13dUp-1MiOW8LYm_CUwa-L

Even if you are not interested  in  

the children/ the shlokas/ the concept of a spiritual armour,

do have a look at the age-old teaching technique in the video – because that will give you a small micro-sample of how Sanatana Dharma has been passing its vedic traditions purely by word of mouth for several thousands of years, from generation to generation!
