NITHYA SLOKAS




























Printed and Published by Indological Trust, Calicut


Rs.10/=

Nithya Slokah


(DAILY PRAYERS)









Compiled by
Dr. T.P. Sasikumar


Poojas may be generally classified into three categories, namely Manthra Puja, Tantra Puja and Stotra Puja. The first two categories call for austerities and may be performed only by qualified persons. On the other hand Stotra Puja (japa) can be performed by all including ladies and children.

I humbly offer you a compilation of slokas. These can be chanted for pleasing different deities, for better result of any actions, for cleansing, santhi, samarpanam, kshamapanam etc….

The whole family may recite these slokas daily sitting at a pooja place and thereby attain peace of mind. The effect of such chanting may not be any immediate benefit. But in a long run these practices gives the benefit. This could be an easy method of meditation. The sloaks, to that matter any poems or songs also helps to improve the memory power.

Swami Sivananda Writes .............
It is better if you get your mantra from your Guru. This is a
tremendous effect on the disciple. The Guru imparts his
SAKTI along with the mantra. If you cannot get a Guru, you
can select any mantra according to your own linking and taste
and repeat it mentally daily, with SRADHA and BHAVA.
This is also has a great PURIFICATORY effect. You will
attain the realization of GOD.
Japa purifies the heart
Japa steadies the mind
Japa destroys the shadripus
Japa destroys birth and death
Japa burs sins
Japa scorches samskaras
Japa annihilates attachment
Japa induces vairagya
Japa roots out all desires
Japa makes one fearless
Japa removes delusion
Japa gives supreme peace
Japa develops prema
Japa unites the devotee with the loard
Japa gives health, wealth, strength and long life
Japa brings god-consciousness
Japa bestows eternal bliss
Japa awakens the kundalini




This compilation is not by accident, but by compulsion. During my lectures on management, scientific analysis on spirituality, vasthu, healing, etc., I used to recommend the people to follow the indian rituals.

Many people come to me asking to suggest some books to learn the minimum required slokas. It was felt that the books are not comprehensive and many a time they are only in regional languages. But the younger generation likes to read in English.

Selection of slokas for a normal compilation is a difficult task as there are numerous slokas and really do not know what to take and what not.

I wanted to include the scientific reasons for the slokas wherever possible. But it was felt that the reason and the requirements of these slokas can be heard once and need not be part of the daily reference book.

This English writing may not be acceptable if the slokas are not heard chanting. Hence it is requested to hear the chanting from some one who knows and use this book for reference and learning.

I am happy that this compilation have been reprinted by many and lakhs of copies have been sold. No copy-write and profit on this for me. This is only a service for those who need this.

Hope you will accept this and give your comments.

  2. It is very nice.Thank you very much for such a beautiful compilation.It would be nice if slokas are followed by their meaning.Reciting them knowing their meaning would be more meaningful.

  3. This is very well compiled. A great one for today's youngsters. I had my mom/elder sister write these in a note book which we used to sit together and recite every morning and evening. Most of those slokas I find here. Great work TPS.
