Yajurveda mantra 32/4
YEN DYOORUGRA PRITHVI CHA DRIDHA YEN SWA STBHITAM YEN NAKHA YO ANTARIKSHE RAJSO VIMANAHA KASMI DEVAI HAVISHA VIDHEMA.
(YEN) the God by whom (UGRA) strong light emitting (DYOHO) heavenly bodies (CHA) and ( PRITHVI) earth and space (DRIDHA) established firmly.
Meaning: The God by whom the strong light emitting heavenly bodies and earth and space etc., have been firmly established.
(YEN) and the God by whom (SWAHA) un-finishing merriment (STABHITAM) is held and (YEN)the God by whom (NAKAHA)salvation is held and (YAHA) the God (ANTARIKSHE) in the space (RAJSAHA) universe/world (VIMANAHA) specially creates (KASMAI) i.e., shape of merriment too.
KASMAI word is made of 'KUM' dhatu of Sanskrit which gives the meaning of merriment. (DEVAAYA) for the dev i.e., God. (HAVISHA) by offerings i.e., aahuti, Yaj /yoga-abhyaas i.e., preach of ashtang yoga. It should be noted that worship of God. If we offer aahuti on havan kund in burning fire, do Yaj and ashtang yoga practice (VIDHEMA) VI=special, DHEM=worship. In this way we do the best worship.
Idea: The worship is of no use if we do not know the real qualities of God. The God has unlimited unchangeable and immortal qualities, which have been mentioned in the Vedas by God Himself. In this mantra some of the qualities are seen. The idea of mantra is that who is God to worship? Mantra says the light emitting heavenly bodies like sun, moon, stars etc., gives us invaluable light etc., and the earth/space where we reside all the said universe is held and created by God only. He is the shape of merriment and the worshiper is provided with the merriment. Salvation is also held by God and God is only powered to bless to real worshipper with the salvation where every sorrows etc., are ended. There is no other God and will never be in future who can do this task. So we have to worship only the God who is one and will remain unchanged, who creates the universe etc., is formless and immortal.
PURURAVO MA MRITHA MA PRA PAPTO MA TVA VRIKASO ASHIVAS U KSHAN,
NA VAI STRAINNANI SAKHYANI SANTI SALAVRIKANNAM HRIDYANYETA
(PURURAVAHA) O! Talkative person (MA) do not (MRITHAHA) get death i.e., A person who does not know about the everlasting love with wife and always talks baselessly, he is being advised not to go to heavenly abode. Because, his false love with baseless attachment and talk will minimize his age and will take him to the death point early.
(MA) do not (PRA PAPTAHA) fall down in the pit i.e., being a human you should get progress but due to the above quoted fault you are degrading yourself.
(MA) do not (TVA) you (ASHIVASAHA) non-beneficial(VRIKASAHA) jackal-meat eater (U) definitely (KSHAN) will eat.
Meaning: Your above quoted fault will decrease your mental and physical power and with the result it may happen that wild animals or any meat-eater may kill you to eat. So leave the unnecessary attachment with the ladies.
(NA) not (VAI)also (STRAINNANI) in connection with ladies (SAKHYANI)friendship/attachment (SANTI) stable.
Meaning: Because baseless attachment with the ladies is not everlasting and is not beneficial.
(ETA) the said attachment is like (SALAVRIKANNAM) AN ATTACK OF JACKALS (HRIDYANI) cruel-hearted/harmful.
Meaning: The baseless attachment with the ladies duly indulged in sensuality is like the cruel-heart of the jackals who attack the living beings to kill and eat them.
Idea: A person must do daily real worship of God according to Vedas to control his perceptions, senses and mind, to avoid baseless, sensual attachment which is always harmful to him, society and the nation.
INDRASHCHIDDHA TADBRAVEETSTRIYA ASHASYAM MANAH, UTO AHA KRATU RAGHUM¨ This mantra has reference to context with the previous mantras wherein it is stated that he who is able to control his five senses, perceptions and mind by studying Vedas and doing hard practice of ashtang yoga, he is only able to get peace and long, happy life. So, this mantra states:
(CHIT) again (INDRAHA GHA) totally controlled learned person also (IDAM) this (ABRAVEET) states.
Meaning: If still a complete learned person, who has full control on his mind, intellect etc., states that (ISTRIYAHA) his wife’s (MANAHA) mind (ASHASYAM) is difficult to follow his Vedic path (UTO AHA) and definitely her (KRATUM) mind and action is (RAGHUM) feeble/weak i.e., if the learned person states that the views and mind of his wife are not according to his Vedic philosophy and it is not possible to turn the wife because her mind and the power to do pious deeds is weak then what to do?
The answer of this question is given in the next mantra 18 that husband and wife both carry the family life like a chariot but the responsibility of the husband to bear the load is more than wife.
Rig Veda mantra 10/90/7
TAM YAJYAM BARHISHI PRAUKSHAN PURUSHAM JAATAMAGRATAHA.
TEN DEVA AYAJANT SADHYA RISHYASHCH YE.
"AGRATAHA JAATAM" famous since eternal times, "TAM" that "YAJYAM" adorable "PURUSHAM" Almighty God "BARHISHI" within heart "PRAUKSHAN" originates/makes him happy "CHA" and "TEN" by the God "DEVAHA" other learned of yoga philosophy i.e., Yogi "YE" who "SADHYAHA" the worship which is complete in all respects which results in realization of God (accomplished worship) "RISHYAHA" he who sees Ved mantras within him "AYAJANT" they do adhyatmik (spiritual) Yajyen.
Meaning & Idea: God is eternal. He is true. Nobody makes God. God is Swayambhu. i.e., neither He is made nor anything is made out of God. He was always in the past, is in Present and will ever remain in the future after final destruction too.
The rishis originate God within their hearts and make Him happy and having the aim of God, the other learned persons of Vedas i.e., Yogi who have done accomplished worship of God i.e., the worship which is complete in all respects and resulting in realization of God and have attained the stage of seeing Ved mantras within them, they do adhyatmik Yajyen i.e., spiritual Yajyen.
Adhyatmik Yajyen means to follow the path of Vedas especially path of Samveda. In short the Vedas state to worship God by listening Vedas from a learned acharya, perform daily Yajyen/havan, name-jaap of God. Hard practice of Ashtang yoga philosophy etc.
In such a way, aspirant, at a stage becomes ascetic and knows Prakriti, soul and Almighty God. He attains Asampragyat Samadhi wherein he realizes God within him. The said worship is according to Vedas and Vedas are eternal knowledge which emanates direct from God. Therefore the present man-made worship does not tally with Vedas.

Meaning: Oh! God you are beneficial to the learned persons, you are the purest and like the eye you see everybody and right from the eternal period you know everything being omniscient. Therefore we pray to see you for 100 winters and may we remain alive till hundred winters. May we listen the Vedas and the pious preach for hundred winters.

May we be alive as unpitiable till 100 winters i.e., till 100 years and more i.e., may we live even for more then 100 winters and may we be listening, preaching and remaining as unpitiable.
Idea: In this mantra, the knowledge to pray God has been given. If we follow the Vedic path and attain the preach of Vedas in life then we will maintain Brahamcharya, good qualities, hard working, honesty, progress in spiritualism as well as in science and in other worldly matters etc. Then while discharging the moral duties for self, family, society and nation, we will get salvation. Also as a result of study of Vedas and Ashtang yoga practice, we may be able to attain ill free, long life with all healthy senses, perceptions, mind and intellect etc., for 100 years and even more.
Rjigveda mantra 6/9/4
Rigveda mantra 6/9/4 states that God as well as soul reside within human body.
AYAM HOTA PRATHMAH PASHYATEMAMIDAM JYOTIRAMRITAM MARTYESHU.
AYAM SA JAJYEN DHRUVA AA NISHATTOAMRITAYASTANVA VARDHMANAHA.
Words Meaning:- Oh! Learned (Pashyat) see (imam) this - God, who is (Dhruvaha) firm- unchangeable cannot be deshaped, cannot be broken into pieces(Nishataha) exists (Prathamaha) the first (Hota) giver (Ayam) this and (Martyeshu) in the destructible bodies (Idam) this-God (Amritam) immortal (Jyotihi) self-enlightened God and (Ayam) this (Amartayahatanva) by human body (Vardhmanaha) seems to be increasing (aa) from all sides(Jajyen) appears (saha) he is soul.
Meaning:- Oh! Learned see this God, who is firm -unchangeable, can not be deshaped, cannot be broken into pieces and exists everywhere. He is the first giver of all matters to us. The God resides in the destructible/perishable bodies. The God who is immortal is like a light of sun i.e., He is self-enlightened. Secondly, the immortal soul also resides in the human body, appears to be increasing from all sides in the shape of human body.
Idea:- In the human body there are two live matters. One is God and second is soul. Both are eternal and self-existing. Of the two one is soul who possesses limited knowledge, and occupies limited place, known when he takes body otherwise remains unknown, faces the result of previous lives deeds- pious deeds or sins.
Second is Almighty, Omnipresent God having unlimited qualities. He is firm, can't be deshaped, knows all about the universe etc., never faces the result of any deeds. Human body is meant to realize soul and God.
YAHA PRANNATO NIMISHTO MAHITVAIK IDRAJA JAGATO BABHOOV,
YA EESHEY ASYE DWIPADASHCHATUSHPADAHA KASMAI DEVAI HAVISHA VIDHEM.(YAJURVEDA 23/3)
(Yaha) The God (Mahitva) by His might/power i.e., being almighty (Babhoov) is/was and will be (it) only (Ekaha) one (Raja) king of (Asya) This (Jagataha) world/universe consisting of (Prannataha) living beings who (Nimishtaha) blink their eyes and have (Dwipadaha) two legs and (Chatushpadaha) four legs. (Yaha) who (Eeshey) creates (Asya) the body of living beings.
(KASMAI) I.E., SHAPE OF MERRIMENT TOO. KASMAI WORD IS MADE OF 'KUM' DHATU OF SANSKRIT WHICH GIVES MEANING OF MERRIMENT, (DEVAAYA) FOR THE DEV, I.E., GOD--- I HAVE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED THE MEANING OF WORD 'DEV'. (HAVISHA) BY OFFERINGS I.E., AAHUTI, YAJ/YOGAABHYAAS, I.E., PREACH OF ASHTANG YOGA --- IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT WORSHIP OF GOD IF WE OFFER AAHUTI IN HAVAN KUND IN BURNING FIRE, DO YAJ AND ASHTNAG YOGA PRACTICE, (VIDHEMA) 'VI' =SPECIAL 'DHEMA'= WORSHIP, IN THIS WAY WE DO THE BEST WORSHIP.
Meaning:- The Almighty God with His power creates the bodies of all living beings who have two legs, four legs or more. He i.e., the God is the only creator of the universe. He was one, is one and will remain one being unchangeable.
Idea:- The God creates, nurses and destroys the universe. He creates the bodies of all living beings. The God having the said qualities is one and unaltered/unchangeable.
So we, all human beings, must only worship the said God who is formless and has unlimited qualities. No one is even equal to Him then what to talk above him.
OM HIRANEYA GARBH HA SAMVART TAGRE BHOOTASYA JAAT HA PATIREK AASEET
SE DADHAR PRITHVIM DHAMU TEMAM KASMEH DEVAYA HAVISHA VIDHEAM
(Hiranygarbhaha) shape of jyoti i.e., God. God enlightens the world, God gives light to sun, moon and others but he does not takes light from anywhere else because he himself is a shape of light, (bhootasya) of (bhoot) i.e., from five bhoot i.e., agni, vaau, jal, aakash, prithivi. So bhootasya means the world made of five bhoots quoted above. (Jaatah) Famous (patihi) Lord (ekah) only one (aaseet) tha i.e., the God who is shape of light was only one famous lord of whole world could made of five matters. Again (agre) before this creation (samvartat) He was present, (sah) the said God (imaam) this (prithiveem) earth, (ut) and, (dyaam) dyulok = heavenly bodies emitting light, (dadhaar) is holding (kasmai) shape of merriment i.e., the God---- here it should be noted that God has unlimited qualities whereas we the souls have limited qualities. So the God as said above is (Hiranygarbhah) i.e., shape of light as well as as (Kasmai) i.e., shape of merriment too. Kasmai word is made of 'kum' dhatu of Sanskrit which gives meaning of merriment, (Devaaya) for the Dev, i.e., God---Ii have previously mentioned the meaning of word 'Dev'. (Havisha) by offerings i.e., aahuti, yaj/yogaabhyaas, i.e., preach of ashtang yoga --- it should be noted that worship of God if we offer aahuti in havan kund in burning fire, do yaj and ashtnag yoga practice, (vidhema) 'vi' =special 'dhema'= worship, in this way we do the best worship.
O! God you are a shape of light by which you enlightens the whole universe. you are almighty i.e./, why you need not to take light etc., from anywhere else. you are only one formless lord of the universe created by you from five matters i.e., agni, jal, vaayu, aakash, prithvee. you was only the creator of the previous creations. (because creation is eternal and before this creation unlimited creations had taken place, nursed, destroyed and again created) of present earth and above quoted heavenly bodies and, will remain only 'You' to destroy and create the universe in future too. You are a shape of merriment. We worship you by means of aahuti, yaj and practice of yoga philosophy, which is the best one in the Vedas. In this worship the holy name jaap, brahamcharya, preaches, good qualities, discharging of moral duties by students, families, vaanprasthis and sanyasis, according to Vedas and other holy books are included. This is the only God who is the shape of merriment (no other equivalent to this God) and we get merriment in return if we worship the said god who creates, nurses, destroys and again creates the universe.
Oh God, you are the source of the Eternal Light to this universe, you have created the Sun and the moon who give light to us. you are the Supreme Master of this universe. You were there before the creation of this universe, and will remain there even after this universe ceases to exist. You are the giver of all the happiness and pleasure . We do your prayer by putting Ahutis in the Havan, by doing Yagya and Yoga Abhyas.
In this Mantra Qualities of the God have been described. God has numerous qualities. There is limit to the qualities of the nature and living beings but God has unlimited qualities. These qualities cannot be counted. In this mantra God has been described as a Creator and the source of eternal light to this universe and there is no one else with such qualities. The God, who has within him, the sun and the moon-the sources of the light to the earth and who was there before the existence of this universe is holding this universe after creating it. He takes care of this entire universe.
In this Mantra it is said that , we should pray to this God, who has countless qualities and there is no one else like him, by doing Yagya and Yoga Abhyas .
We should not pray to the creations of the God but to the God only. OM VISHWANI DEV SAVITAR DURITANI PARASUV. YAD BHADRAN TANYA AA SUV
OM=NAME OF GOD, VISHWANI=ALL, DURITANI=BAD QUALITIES, PARASUV=TO KEEP AWAY, DEV=HERE DEV MEANS GOD, THE LITERAL/COMMON MEANING OF DEV IS HE WHO GIVES US EVERYTHING. SAVITAH=THE CREATOR OF THREE LOKAS/UNIVERSE,YAT=THOSE,BHADRAM=GOOD QUALITIES, TAT=THOSE,NAH= TO US, AASUV= TO GET. O!DEV SAVITAH VISHWANI DURITANI PARASUV YAD BHADRAM TAT NAH AASUV. MEANING---- O! GOD YOU GIVE US EVERYTHING AND YOU'RE CREATOR.KINDLY KEEP AWAY ALL THE ILLUSIONS I.E., BAD QUALITIES FROM US.AND WHATEVER ARE THE GOOD QUALITIES THOSE MAY GIVE US.
Oh Almighty God, theGiver of every thing in and around our life, and Creator of this whole universe, please remove all of our Bad qualities/ ILLUSION, I.E., Laziness ,anger, enviness; attachment to worldly things, cheating, proud etc. etc. and instill in me all the Good Qualities, LIKE SERVICES TO ACHARYA,PARENTS, ELDERS, ETC., AND EFFORTS TO GAIN KNOWLEDGE OF VEDAS ETC., FROM ACHARYA AND INSPIRATIONS TO DONATE TOWARDS RIGHT PATH.
In this Mantra, by saying the word Duritani -we request God to remove all our Bad qualities from our within that make us lazy, proudy, unindustious angry etc.etc. By saying the word Bhadaram, we request God to Give us knowledge to get rid of all these bad qualities, and by virtue of this we can get all the happiness in this life and achieve Moksha. As per the Vedas, Praying to God every day has lot of power and God always listens to the prayers with Vedmantras in a Yagya. Only doing prayer is not useful, what is more important is that we should put in effort through Yoga Abhyas, Pranayam, Dhyan- Meditation, Yagya, havan; engage our mind in good deeds to get rid of the bad qualities from our within and Derive Happiness.
OM YAH ATMDA BALDAHA YASYA VISHWE UPASATE PRASHISHAM YASYA DEVAH YASYA CCHAYA AMRITAM YASYA MRITYUHU KASMEH DEVAYA HAVISHA VIDHEAM.
(YAH) The God who (ATMDA) gives the knowledge of atma, i.e., God gives knowledge right from Straw to Braham (including Prakriti, soul and God), (BALDAHA) gives power/strength (YASYA) whom i.e., for the God (VISHWE) all (DEVAH) learned persons (UPASATE) worship (YASYA) whose i.e., the God's (PRASHISHAM) truth, rules and justice are accepted by the learned persons i.e., The God is truth and He is therefore the SUPREME JUDGE. (YASYA) whose (CCHAYA) shelter (AMRITAM) is salvation, i.e., He who worship God according to Vedas/Holy books of preaches, he one day attains salvation. So the CCHAYA means faith, belief and to follow the true path and daily worship of God, in the shape of Havan/Yagya, His pray, praise, worship and Ashtang Yoga practice (YASYA) without His shelter (MRITYUHU) soul has to face death and birth process with sorrows again and again, (KASMAI) i.e., shape of merriment too. Kasmai word is made of 'Kum' dhatu of Sanskrit which gives meaning of merriment, (Devaaya) for the Dev, i.e., God--- I have previously mentioned the meaning of word 'Dev'. (Havisha) by offerings i.e., aahuti, yaj/yogaabhyaas, i.e., preach of ashtang yoga --- it should be noted that worship of God if we offer aahuti in havan kund in burning fire, do yaj and ashtang yoga practice, (Vidhema) 'Vi' = special 'Dhema'= worship, in this way we do the best worship.
MEANING:- He who i.e., God donates us knowledge and power/strength. The learned persons worship God, whose (God) truth rules and justice are accepted by learned persons whose (God) shelter is salvation, without His shelter there is death again and again. So for the God who is the shape of welfare and merriment, we must offer our offerings (Aahuti) in Yagya and do Ashtang Yoga practice, which is the best worship of God.
IDEA: - The God has created this world and it is a mercy on us that we have been blessed by HIM with human body because from this body only the soul can discharge his moral duties, she can get progress in education, science simultaneously in spiritualism to get salvation as also mentioned in SAAMVED mantra 1429. The idea of divine words "YASYA CCHAYA AMRITAM" is that to listen preaches of Vedas etc., to perform Holy Yagya with Ved mantras, Practice of Ashtang Yoga and to do pious deeds according to Vedas, is a real shelter of Almighty God. Following the said path, aspirant attain "AMRITAM" i.e., salvation. He who is against the Vedas/shastras etc., and does deeds at his own, it means he is not doing real worship and is indulged in illusion and faces death and births process time and again to face sorrows etc.
It is clear in the world that nobody wants sorrows, tensions, diseases etc., so in the absence of true spiritual knowledge he seeks merriment and welfare from money, assets and materialistic articles of the world, which are destroyed one day. So, he who do hard works to get true knowledge to worship God from learned Acharya, he one day realizes God and attains everlasting merriment of salvation.

Idea: They are the real learned persons who never insult a learned acharya of Vedas and they are beneficial preachers who separate/kill our faults/sins and thus make us pious. The said learneds are adorable and are eligible for respects.
SA TWAM NO AGNEVAMO(AGNE+AVAMAH) BHAVOTI NEDISHTHO ASYA USHSO VYUSHTAU.
AVA YAKSHVA NO VARUNNAM RARAANNO VEEHI MRIDEEKAM SUHAVO NA EDHI.
(Rigveda mantra 4/1/5)
(AGNE) learned of Vedas (SAH) he (TWAM) you, (ASYAH) this, (USHAH) of dawn, (VYUSHTAU) in the light, (NEDISHTH) nearest stage, (UUTEE) with protection, (NAH) for us, (AVAMAH) to protect, (BHAV) to be, (VARUNNAM) to preacher, (RARAANNAH) while giving, (NAH) for us, (AVA) to protect, (YAKSHVA) to be, (SUHAWAH) inviting with the best manner, (NAH) for us, (MRIDEEKAM) the deeds which give merriment, (VIHI) please give, (EDHI) to make available.
O! Learned acharya, you be near us and protect us by guiding pious deeds at the beautiful time of dawn, when calm light starts coming and become protective to us. While providing with the best preacher, you kindly become available to us. Because we cordially invite you with respect so teach us the pious deeds which give us merriment and remain available for us.
Idea: The time of dawn is always healthy for all human beings. Its benefits are huge. So a learned acharya of Vedas is compared here with dawn. He is the learned acharya who protects us, duly provided with eternal knowledge of Vedas, separates and protects us from sins, etc., duly provided us with Vedic knowledge.
"Yo Bhootam Cha Bhavyam Cha Sarvam Yashchadhitishthati,
Svaryasya Cha Kevalam Tasmai Jyeshthai Brahmane Namaha"
(Atharvaveda mantra 10/8/1)
(Yo) The God (Bhootam) past i.e., was in past (Cha) and at present (Cha) and (Bhavyam) future i.e., will be in future.
Meaning:- The God was in past, is at present and will ever remain in future and whatever happens in the past, at present or in future, He knows every happening/everything.
(Sarvam) all universe (Yashchadhitishthati) lord/master/controller; creates, nurses and destroys.
Meaning:-God is the lord/master of all universe and He only creates, nurses and destroys the same.
(Cha) and (Yasya) of whom (Swaha) light(Kevalam) ever remains in merriment/form of merriment.
Meaning:- The God is light. So Whose light (the God) is ever a shape of merriment.
(Tasmai) that God i.e., Who contains the above qualities and (Jyeshthai) Who is supreme, for Him i.e., (Brahmanne) for the supreme Brahma (Namaha) I bow down.
Meaning:- So I bow down before the God who contains the above qualities, Who is supreme and Who is Brahma i.e., most superior/supreme.
Idea:- Yajurveda mantra 19/30 states that God is Truth and is realized by hard study, worship and practice of Ashtang Yoga etc. Definition of Truth in Bhagwad Geeta shloka 2/16 is that the matter which is eternal, is not made by any body and is self made, which/who was in the past, is in the present and will ever remain in the future, that is Truth. In this category Almighty God comes.
Yajurveda mantra 2/26 states about the form of the God, that God is "Swayambhuhu" i.e. eternal form which is not created by anybody. So based on the eternal knowledge of Vedas and the experiences of ancient Rishi- Muni, Yogis in the Upanishads and the experiences of the present Rishi-Munis too, the God is Truth. He is eternal, He is "Swayambhu" (not made by anybody). He was in past, is at present and will ever remain in future. He knows every happening of past, present and future. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe. Therefore, He is the lord/master of all universe/souls. He is eternal light, form of merriment etc. Here it may be noted that God has unlimited qualities, out of which only few have been quoted according to the mantra. On the other hand, we all are souls and soul has limited qualities. God has unlimited qualities, that is why, He is God and soul has limited qualities that is why, He is soul. Souls are countless and constant in number where as God is one and within every minutest part of the universe, either alive souls or non-alive matters. So God is separate and souls are separate entities.

God you’re omnipresent i.e., live in every minutest (atom, molecules, electron, neutron, photon and even the minutest parts etc.,) part of the universe. So this earth provided by you for resting on by all human beings, is like our bedding to rest and for other purposes too like cultivation etc., etc.
Hey Amrit Swaroop Ishwer, we are grateful to you for giving us this mother earth which gives us the same pleasure that we derive by sleeping on OUR MOTHER’S LAP, LIKE a cosy/ comfortable bedding. You are present in every single particle of this earth on which we live, play, grow, build our houses, earn our living, and live happily. We thank you for giving us this beautiful earth. Om Amritapidhan Masih Swaha;-

Hey Amrit Swaroop Ishwar, we are grateful to you for giving us this outer space / sky which is just like a blanket. It gives us the same pleasure that we derive by covering ourselves with a warm blanket in a cold night. You are in every particle of the Sun, Moon and all the planets and are HOLDING/balancing this universe. We, all the living beings, derive energy from the outer space for our living and lead a happy and comfortable life. Om Satyam yshaha shree mareyee shree shreyatam Swaha:

MEANING----- O! God the glory/fame and the wealth earned based on truth and hard working may remain always with me in the shape of wealth, because you are the only donor of the same.
Hey Prabhu, you are a Saviour and protect every living being on this earth. I pray to you that I should earn my living by hard work and Honest means and use part of this money for Yagya and other pious deeds and lead a gentleman life BECAUSE YOU DONATE US THE SAME FOR DONATION.
