On waking, pray every morning of your life, "Oh Lord, I am born now from the womb of sleep. I am determined to carry out all tasks this day as offering to Thee, with Thee ever present before my mind's eye. Make my words, thoughts and deeds sacred and pure; Let me not inflict pain on anyone; let no one inflict pain on me; direct me, guide me this day." And when you enter the portals of sleep at night, pray, "Oh Lord, the tasks of this day, whose burden I placed on you this morning, are over. It was You who made me walk and talk and think and act; I therefore place at Thy Feet all my words, thoughts and deeds. My task is done. Receive me, I am coming back to You." Adopt these as your daily prayers.
