॥ मातृभूमी प्रार्थना ॥

नमस्ते सदा वत्सले मातृभूमे त्वया हिन्दुभूमे सुखं वर्धितोऽहम् । महामङ्गले पुण्यभूमे त्वदर्थे पतत्वेष कायो नमस्ते नमस्ते ॥ १॥ Forever I bow to Thee, O loving Motherland! Thou, the land of Hindus, hast brought me up in happiness. O great and blessed Holy Land! in thy cause May my body be sacrificed. Obeisance to thee, again and again! 1. प्रभो शक्तिमन् हिन्दुराष्ट्रांगभूता । इमे सादरन् त्वां नमामो वयम् । त्वदीयाय कार्याय बद्धा कटीयम् । शुभामाशिशन् देहि तत्पूर्तये ॥ अजय्यान् च विश्वस्य देहीश शक्तिम् । सुशीलं जगद् येन नम्रं भवेत् । श्रुतंचैव यत्कण्टकाकीर्णमार्गम् । स्वयं स्वीकृतन् नः सुगंकारयेत् ॥ २॥ O Almighty! we, children of this Hindu Nation, bow to Thee in reverence . For Thy work, we have girded up our loins; confer on us Thy blessings for its fulfilment. Grant us invincible strength, and purity of character as would command the respect of the whole world; And such knowledge that would make easy the thorny path we have voluntarily chosen. 2. समुत्कर्ष निःश्रेयसस्यैकमुग्रम् । परं साधनं नाम वीरव्रतम् । तदन्तःस्फूर्त्वक्षया ध्येयनिष्ठा । हृदन्तः प्रजागर्तु तीव्रानिशम् ॥ विजेत्री च नः संहता कार्यशक्तिः । विधायास्य धर्मस्य संरक्षणम् ॥ परं वैभवं नेतुमेतत् स्वराष्ट्रम् । समर्था भवत्वाशिशा ते भृशम् ॥ ३॥ ॥ भारत माता की जय ॥ May we be inspired with the spirit of stern heroism, the sole and ultimate means Of attaining the highest spiritual bliss, with the greatest temporal prosperity. May intense and everlasting devotion to our Ideal ever inspire our hearts. May our victorious organised power of action, by Thy grace, fully protect our Dharma, And lead this Nation of ours, to the highest pinnacle of Glory. 3 VICTORY TO MOTHER INDIA ॥ इति॥ Encoded and proofread by Sunder Hattangadi at sunderh at hotmail.com
