The Universal Prayer that found me

I believe things happen for a reason, but that faith has shaken in the recent years. Still I found myself in a sanctuary of an Airbnb in Brooklyn, a yoga institute, and this prayer was in a book I opened at random. I was struggling, missing Mia and worried about work.

Although I try to meditate, it escapes my rushing mind and this prayer being in french forced me to slow down and find the true meaning of each word. My mind could not drift and it is a beautiful prayer. I think that the “Universal Prayer” of Swami Suryadevananda found its way to my hands just as it was meant to. And so I am sharing the beautiful words, translation and meaning with you.
