INVOCATION

We invoke the global being

whose body is the physical cosmos,

whose fabric we share as our bodies,

and whose celestial shroud is revealed to us

when we are attuned to our celestial being,

whose thinking is customized in our thought,

and whose emotion arouses ecstasy in our soul,

when we are moved to glorify the splendor behind what we see.

We invoke the global being
whose body is the physical cosmos,
whose fabric we share as our bodies,
and whose celestial shroud is revealed to us
when we are attuned to our celestial being,
whose presence is always there, mostly unbeknownst to ourselves,
and whose reality transcends any concept we could make of him/her.

Amin.
InvocationToward the One,
the Perfection of Love, Harmony, and Beauty,

United with all the Illuminated Souls,
Who form the Embodiment of the Master,
the Spirit of Guidance.


SaumPraise be to Thee, Most Supreme God,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent, All-pervading,
the Only Being.

Raise us from the denseness of the earth.
Thy Beauty do we worship,
To Thee do we give willing surrender.
Most Merciful and Compassionate God,
The Idealized Lord of the whole humanity,
Thee only do we worship,
and towards Thee alone we aspire.
Open our hearts towards Thy Beauty,
Illuminate our souls with Divine Light.
O Thou, the Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty!
All-powerful Creator, Sustainer, Judge and Forgiver of our shortcomings,
Lord God of the East and of the West,
of the worlds above and below,
And of the seen and unseen beings.
Pour upon us Thy Love and Thy Light,
Give sustenance to our bodies, hearts and souls,
Use us for the purpose that Thy Wisdom chooseth,
And guide us on the path of Thine Own Goodness.
Draw us closer to Thee every moment of our life,
Until in us be reflected Thy Grace,
Thy Glory, Thy Wisdom, Thy Joy and Thy Peace.
Amen.
May the Message of God reach far and wide!PirInspirer of my mind, consoler of my heart, healer of my spirit,
Thy presence lifteth me from earth to heaven,
Thy words flow as the sacred river,
Thy thought riseth as a divine spring,
Thy tender feelings waken sympathy in my heart.
Beloved Teacher, Thy very being is forgiveness.
The clouds of doubt and fear are scattered by Thy piercing glance.
All ignorance vanishes in Thy illuminating presence.
A new hope is born in my heart by breathing Thy peaceful atmosphere.
O inspiring Guide through life´s puzzling ways,
In Thee I feel abundance of blessing.
Amen.


SalatMost gracious Lord,
Master, Messiah, and Savior of humanity,
We greet Thee with all humility.
Thou art the First Cause and the Last Effect,
the Divine Light and the Spirit of Guidance,
Alpha and Omega.
Thy Light is in all forms,
Thy Love in all beings:
in a loving mother, in a kind father, in an innocent child,
in a helpful friend, in an inspiring teacher.
Allow us to recognize Thee in all Thy holy names and forms:
as Rama, as Krishna, as Shiva, as Buddha.
Let us know Thee as Abraham, as Solomon, as Zarathushtra, as Moses, as Jesus, as Mohammed,
and in many other names and forms, known and unknown to the world.
We adore Thy past,
Thy presence deeply enlighteth our being,
and we look for Thy blessing in the future.
Messenger, Christ, Nabi, the Rasul of God!
Thou Whose heart constantly reacheth upward,
Thou comest on earth with a message,
as a dove from above when Dharma decayeth,
and speakest the Word that is put into Thy mouth,
as the light filleth the crescent moon.
Let the star of the Divine Light shining in Thy heart
be reflected in the hearts of Thy devotees.
May the Message of God reach far and wide,
illuminating and making the whole humanity
as one single Family in the Parenthood of God.
Amen.
Pour upon us Thy Love and Thy Light!NabiA torch in the darkness, a staff during my weakness,
A rock in the weariness of life,
Thou, my Master, makest earth a paradise.
Thy thought giveth me unearthly joy,
Thy light illuminateth my life´s path,
Thy words inspire me with divine wisdom,
I follow in thy footsteps, which lead me to the eternal goal.
Comforter of the broken-hearted,
Support of those in need,
Friend of the lovers of truth,
Blessed Master, thou art the Prophet of God.
Amen.


KhatumThou, Who art the Perfection of Love, Harmony, and Beauty,
The Lord of heaven and earth,

which constantly cometh from within.

which is hidden in our souls,
that we may know and understand life better.

Raise us above the distinctions and differences which divide us,
Send us the Peace of Thy Divine Spirit,
And unite us all in Thy Perfect Being.

Wakener of the world from sleep,
Deliverer of the Message of God,

The light of the whole universe,
The fulfillment of God´s purpose,
Thou the life eternal, we seek refuge in thy loving enfoldment.
Spirit of Guidance,
Source of all beauty, and Creator of harmony,
Love, Lover, and Beloved Lord.
Thou art our divine ideal.
Amen.
