A Mother’s Blessing for Her Child (Poota Mata)

February 27, 2011

O son (child), this is your mother’s blessing, hope, and prayer,
May you never forget for even an instant the Lord God
and ever remember the Universal Lord.

May the True Guru be kind to you, and may you love the society of saints.
May the preservation of your honor by the Transcendent Lord
be your clothing, and may the singing of his praises be as food to you.

Drink the immortalizing Nectar that you may ever have long life,
and contemplation of the Lord give you infinite delight.

May joy and playful pleasure be yours, may your hopes be fulfilled,
and worries never trouble you.

Let your mind be the bumble bee, and the Lord’s feet be the lotus flower.

– Sikh prayer
