I call upon Gaia, Primeval Prophetess …
The Greek great earth mother.”

Sri Bhoostuti [shloka for the Earth Goddess or Mother Earth]

Bhoomi Devi (Mother Earth) showers boons on her devotees
Boons of a magnitude beyond the hopes of the
devotees
By making them
worthy of getting such boons
She avoids giving harmful boons
sought by devotees through their ignorance.
She is the embodiment of
kshama(forgiving nature).
She forgives the devotees of their sins
and showers them with boons.

Acharya Sri DESIKAR’s praise of Sri BHOOMADEVI [adapted]
Audio of Bhoo Stuthi

Gaia,
you who cradle uranium and the rose
in your arms–
in this vast mysterious universe,
my very bones belong to you.
You witness my love affair
with the tall grass, wind, fox:
my senses–your holy communion.

I stand on your soil
in sunlight, starlight, moonlight,
rain, eclipse and earthquake,
offering a timeless prayer.

I walk in the spirit of you.
Earth. Mother, Gaia.
I speak in your tongues.
I plant your seeds.
Attend my dreams.

Clarify my thoughts.
Inform my acts.
And every day at dawn,
seize my heart anew. Claudia L’Amoreaux Fox

Mother Earth Prayer
by KiiskeeN’tum

Mother Earth hear your child, As I sit here on your lap of grass, I listen to the echoes of your voice In my brother, the Wind, As he blows from all corners and directions. The soft and gentle raindrops are the Tears you cry for your children Teach me the Lessons you offer: To nurture my children, as you nurture yours, To learn the Lessons of the Four Kingdoms, that make up this World of Physical Things, and To Learn to Walk the Path chosen so long ago. Mother Earth, hear your child, Be a bond between the Worlds of Earth and Spirit. Let the Winds echo the Knowledge of the Grandfathers. Who await, unseen, yet visible if I only turn my eyes to their World. Let me hear their Voices, in the Winds that Blow to the East.

From the East: I seek the Lessons of Childhood: To see with the trusting innocence of a small one, The Lessons of Spirit, Given in Love by our Creator.

From the South: to Learn the Ways of Questioning: The Fire and Independence of adolescence, The Truths, and how they help us Grow along this Path.

From the West: where the Grandfathers teach us Acceptance of Responsibility That come during the years of Marriage and Family. That my own children grow Strong, and True.

From the North: where the Elders, who by their long lives Have learned and stored Wisdom and Knowledge. And Learned to Walk in Balance and Harmony with our Mother, the Earth.

Mother Earth, hear your child. Hold my hand as I Walk my Path in this World. Guide me to the Lessons I seek, bring me closer to Our Creator, Until I return to the Western Direction, to once again Enter the World of Spirit, Where the Sacred Fire Awaits, and I rejoin the Council of the Elders, In the Presence of the One Who-Created-All.

Ibu Pertiwi [Mother Earth]
Indonesian National Song

I see Mother Pertiwi
(She is) in sorrow
Your tears is flowing
Remembering your (lost) golds and diamonds
Jungles, mountains, paddy fields, and the seas
Storing the treasure (richness)
Now mother is sad
Sighing and praying

Second verse:

I see Mother Pertiwi
We come to serve (you)
Behold your sons and daughters
Will make mother happy
Mother, we stil love (you)
Your faithful sons
Guarding the heirloom
For homeland and nation
This pretty planet, spinning through space
You’re a garden, you’re a harbor, you’re a holy place.
Golden sun going down,
Gentle blue giant, spin us around.
All through the night.
Safe ’til the morning light.Paramahansa Yogananda
Spreading our (wearing my) long tail feathers as we (I) fly
Spreading our (wearing my) long tail feathers as we (I) fly
We (I) circle around
We (I) circle aroundThe boundaries of the earth,
The planet of our (my) birth
|The sacred mother earth
Joseph ShabalalaEarth My Body
Earth my body,
Water my blood,
Air my breath,
And fire my spirit…
Joseph Shabalala“I am going to venture that the man who sat on
the ground in his tipi meditating on life and its meaning, accepting the kinship of all creatures, and acknowledging unity with the
universe of things, was infusing into his being the true essence of
civilization.” Chief Luther Standing Bear – Lakota Sioux
The Earth is Our Mother
The earth is our mother, we must take care of her
The earth is our mother, we must take care of her
Hey yunga, ho yunga, hey yung, yung
Hey yunga, ho yunga, hey yung, yung

(Her sacred ground we walk upon,with every step we take)

(The sky is our father, we must take care of him)

(His sacred air we breathe it in, with every breath we take)
Joseph Shabalala

There are many things to be shared with the Four
Colors of humanity in our common destiny as one with our Mother the Earth. It is this sharing that must be considered with great care by the Elders and the medicine people who carry the Sacred Trusts, so that no harm may come to people through ignorance and misuse of these powerful forces.”
Resolution of the Fifth Annual Meetings of the Traditional Elders Circle, 1980

Every walk to the woods is a religious rite, every bath in the stream is a saving ordinance. Communion service is at all hours, and the bread and wine are from the heart and marrow of Mother Earth.
John Burroughs

“We are grateful for abundant truth
We are grateful for everlasting love
We are grateful for glorious health
We are grateful for freedom from fear
We are grateful for the great supply of earth resources
We are grateful for the endurance of physical and spiritual strength
We are grateful we can see the future through the newness of each day

We join with all the creatures of our Mother Earth in glorious songs
of praise and thanksgiving for the abundant life that is ours.”

Prophetic Voices of the Sisters of Honua – excerpt by the late ‘Grams’ Twylah Nitsch

May Peace Prevail on Earth
I will pray for the happiness of the people of all the spiritual traditions of the world.
May all the religions and spiritual traditions of the world live together in peace
May Peace Prevail on Earth
World Peace Prayer
Honor the sacred.
Honor the Earth, our Mother.
Honor the Elders.
Honor all with whom we share the Earth:-
Four-leggeds, two-leggeds, winged ones,
Swimmers, crawlers, plant and rock people.
Walk in balance and beauty.
Native American ElderThe spirit of God is a life that bestows life, root of world-tree and wind in its boughs.(St. Hildegarde of Bingen, `Catholic Digest’)

“This is the Earth, healed again, growing green and blue. I want you to remember this exactly as it is, and then go and tell the people that if enough of us hold this image in their minds, we can heal the Earth and make it like it was a long time ago.”
Rolling Thunder

GAIA & THE KARPOI~Orphic Hymn to Gaia~
Oh Goddess, Source of Gods and Mortals, All-Fertile, All-Destroying Gaia, Mother of All, Who brings forth the bounteous fruits and flowers,
All variety, Maiden who anchors the eternal world in our own,
Immortal, Blessed, crowned with every grace,
Deep bosomed Earth, sweet plains and fields fragrant grasses in the nurturing rains,
Around you fly the beauteous stars, eternal and divine,
Come, Blessed Goddess, and hear the prayers of Your children,
And make the increase of the fruits and grains your constant care, with the fertile seasons Your handmaidens,
Draw near, and bless your supplicants.

Hymn to Gaia
Homer

Gaia,
Mother of all
foundation of all,
the oldest one.
I shall sing to earth,
She feeds everything
that is in the world
Whoever you are
whether you live upon her sacred ground
or whether you live along the path of the sea.
You that fly
it is she
who nourishes you
from her treasure store
Queen of Earth
through you
Beautiful children,
beautiful harvest
came
the giving of life
and the taking of life
both are yours.
Happy is the man you honor
the one who has this
has everything.
His fields thick with ripe corn,
his cattle grow heavy in the pasture
his house brims over with good things
These are the men who are masters of their cities

The laws are just, the women are fair
happiness & fortune richly follow them.
Their sons delight
In the ecstasy of youth
Their daughters play
they dance among the flowers
slapping in & out
they dance on the grass
over soft flowers.
Holy goddess, you
honour them
ever flowing spirit.
Farewell
Mother of the gods,
bride of heaven
sparkling with stars
For my song, life
allow me
loved of the heart.
Now
and in my other songs
I shall remember you.

Aboriginal Thanksgiving Prayer
God of Holy Dreaming, Great Creator Spirit, from the dawn of creation you have given your children the good things of Mother Earth. You spoke and the gum tree grew. In the vast desert and the dense forest, and in the cities and at the water’s edge, creation sings your praise.
[ Lenore Parker]

Honor the sacred.
Honor the Earth, our Mother.
Honor the Elders.
Honor all with whom we
share the Earth:-
Four-leggeds, two-leggeds,
winged ones,
Swimmers, crawlers,
plant and rock people.
Walk in balance and beauty.

Native American Elder
Earth, Teach Me

Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain.

An Ute Prayer
Thanksgiving

We return thanks to our mother, the earth,
which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in Whom is embodied all goodness,
and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the earth, our planet home, with its beautiful depths and soaring heights, its vitality and abundance of life, and together we ask that it

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the mountains, the Cascades and the Olympics, the high green valleys and meadows filled with wild flowers, the snows that never melt,the summits of intense silence, and we ask that they

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the waters that rim the earth, horizon to horizon, that flow in our rivers and streams, that fall upon our gardens and fields and we ask that they

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the land which grows our food, the nurturing soil, the fertile fields, the abundant gardens and orchards, and we ask that they

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the forests, the great trees reaching strongly to the sky with the earth in their roots and the heavens in their branches, the fir and the pine and the cedar, and we ask them to

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the creatures of the fields and forests and the seas, our brothers and sisters the wolves and deer, the eagle and dove, the great whales and dolphin, the beautiful Orca and salmon who share our Northwest home, and we ask them to

Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon all those who have lived on this earth, our ancestors and our friends, who dreamed the best for future generations, and upon whose lives our lives are built, and with thanksgiving, we call upon them to

Teach us, and show us the Way.

And lastly, we call upon all that we hold most sacred, the presence and power of the Great Spirit of love and truth which flows through all the Universe, to be with us to

Teach us, and show us the Way.

Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult! Let the sea and all within it thunder, the fields and everything in them exult! Then shall all the forest trees shout for joy, at the presence of the Eternal One, who is coming to rule the Earth.
Psalm 96:11-13

To Thee, whose temple is of Space,
Whose altar earth, sea, skies,
One chorus let all Beings raise!
All Nature’s incense rise!
Alexander Pope, Universal Prayer


The Great Invocation

A World Prayer by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul Original 1945 Version

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power
restore the Plan on Earth.

The Great Invocation
by the Lucis TrustAdapted 2000 Version
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One return to Earth.From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.Let Light and Love and Power
restore the Plan on Earth.

Invocation

We are busy with the luxury of things.
Their number and multiple faces bring
To us confusion we call knowledge. Say:
God created the world, pinned night to day,
Made mountains to weigh it down, seas
To wash its face, living creatures with pleas
(The ancestors of prayers) seeking a place
In this mystery that floats in endless space.

God set the earth on the back of a bull,
The bull on a fish dancing on a spool
Of silver light so fine it is like air;
That in turn rests on nothing there
But nothing that nothing can share.
All things are but masks at God’s beck and call,
They are symbols that instruct us that God is all.
– from Conference of the Birds trans. Raficq Abdulla
Attar

“And if you ask me of God, my God/Where is God that in joy we may worship?/Here on Earth too God lives, not in heaven alone/A stiking fir, a rich furrow, in them you will find God’s likeness. Divine image incarnate in every mountain. Wherever the breath of life flows, you will find God embodied/And God’s household? All being: the gazelle, the turtle, the shrub, the cloud pregnant with thunder/ God-in-creation is God’s eternal name.”
Saul Tchernikovsky

invoking-god - 59489673The wolf shall dwell with the lamb: and the leopard shall lie down with the kid: the calf and the lion, and the sheep shall abide together, and a little child shall lead them. The calf and the bear shall feed: their young ones shall rest together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp: and the weaned child shall thrust his hand into the den of the basilisk. They shall not hurt, nor shall they kill in all my holy mountain, for the earth is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the covering waters of the sea.
Isaias 11:6-9

GOD WOULD KNEEL DOWN

I think God might be a little prejudiced.

For once He asked me to join Him on a walk
through this world,

and we gazed into every heart on this earth,
and I noticed He lingered a bit longer
before any face that was
weeping,

and before any eyes that were
laughing.

And sometimes when we passed
a soul in worship

God too would kneel
down.

I have come to learn: God
adores His
creation.
St. Francis of Asissi

Lord, the air smells good today,
straight from the mysteries
within
the garden
of God.
The trees in their prayer,
the birds in praise,
the first blue violets,
kneeling.
— Rumi

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the shades of night to you
Moon and stars ever giving light to you
Traditional Gaelic Blessing

“Blessed be the Son of Light who knows your mother earth
Because it is the giver of life.
Know that your Mother Earth is in you and you’re It.
It was she who gave you life and who gave you life
And gave you this body that one day you shall return.
Know that the blood that flows in your veins
Born of the blood of thy mother earth,
Her blood falls from the clouds, springs from the womb …
Bubble streams in the mountains
It flows abundantly in rivers of the plains.
Know that the air we breathe is born of the breath of thy mother earth,
Hers is the Breath of sky blue heaven above
And whisper of the leaves of the forest.
Know that the hardness of your bones have been created from the bones of your Mother Earth.
Know that the softness of your flesh is born of the flesh of your Mother Earth.
The light from your eyes, the scope of your ears
Born of the colors and sounds of your Mother Earth
Around you made the waves of the sea surrounding the fish.
As the air holds the bird …
Verily I say unto thee, thou art one with your Mother Earth
She is in you and you’re It.
It you were born, you live It and She’ll come back again.
It follows, therefore, His laws
For your breath is the breath of It.
Your blood her blood.
Your bone her bone.
Thy flesh her flesh.
Your eyes and your ears are hers too.
He who finds peace in his Mother Earth
Never die,
Know this peace in your mind
Want this peace to your heart
It does this peace with thy body,
Pass this peace to your fellows
Thank, peaceful attitudes, let Thy peace with Mother Earth has blessed! “
Gospel of the Essenes
Translated from Source: Portuguese version ORAÇÃO Á MÃE TERRA

: 9:09 :The Gaia Minute

Each day at 9:09 in the morning or evening, let us spend a minute or more to beam our highest vibration into Gaia, our Mother Earth, along with all sentient and insentient beings.

To raise our vibration, we can pray, meditate, hold intention or simply visualize Gaia as healed, healing, whole, radiant.

When thousands of people join together in an endeavor such as this, the energies so generated can bring miraculous changes. And when each of us does it in our own time zone, our Mother Earth and all of benefit from a round-the-clock and round the world healing.
