Book Of Prayer

Author: Renuka Narayanan

"The Book of Prayer is a multi-faith collection of prayers, sayings and devotional poems, brought together as inspirations and reflections for each day of the year. Represented here are all the world’ major faiths and traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism and Zoroastrianism. Prophets, saints, and ordinary seekers, some known, many anonymous, show us the way to a celebration of the Divine and a sacred connection with all life. Contained in these pages is the wisdom of the great religious texts, among them the Upanishads, the Bible, the Quran, the Dhammapada and the Adi Granth. There are verses by mystics and saints-poets like Kabir, Bulle Shah, Lal Ded, Meera Bai, Jnaneshwar, Aandal, Mahadeviakka and St. Francis of Assisi, and poems by famous literary figures like John Donne, Christina Rossetti and Gerard Manley Hopkins. Also included are songs of hope composed by people coping with the compulsions of everyday life?farmers, sailors, doctors and students."
