Re: A prayer for the unfortunate ones
Date: Thu Dec 30 1999 - 19:53:57 PST

Dear Bhagavatas
I fully agree with Sri Sampathkumar that we should pray for the safety of the 
unfortunate victims. In this connection, I have one suggestion to make. 
Sri Anjaneya is known for saving those on the brink of death.
1. He saved Lakshmana by bringing the Sanjeevi mountain, when he lay 
motionless on the verge of death.
2. He saved Sri Sita Piratti when she was so dejected as to contemplate 
committing suicide.
3. He saved Bharatalwar, when he was about to enter the fire ordeal in 

I have personally experienced several instances of the miracle of saving by 
Sri Anjaneya. There is a particular Slokam which is found very simple but 
very effective in such circumstances. 

It reads as follows:
"asAdhya sAdhaka swAmin, asAdhyam thava kim vadha /
rAma dhootha kripA sindhO: math kAryam sAdhaya prabhO://

Let each one of us resolve to recite this Sloka as many time as possible 
(1008 / 108 / 28 / 10) to the best of our ability and circumstances and pray 
to him to rush the much needed succor to these victims.

Hopefully, if we do this with sincerity, he will respond immediately. 

Let us also resolve to offer our thanks to Sri Hanuman on the Hanumath 
Jayanthi day that falls on 6th January 2000 in whichever way we find it 
possible individually.
