AUGUST 13, 1953 – THE MASTER’S PRAYER GIVEN TO ALL HUMANITY ON THIS DAY.
Meher Baba dictated the Master’s (or Parvardigar) Prayer in Dehra Dun on Thursday, August 13th, 1953. And from that day until the 2nd of September, it was recited every evening with Baba taking part in the prayer. Donkin would read it aloud in English, and it was repeated by another mandali in Gujarati. When it was over, Baba would lay his head on the feet of each of the men mandali. This is the prayer:
O Parvardigar! The Preserver and Protector of All.
You are without beginning and without end.
Non-dual, beyond comparison,
and none can measure You.
You are without color, without expression,
without form and without attributes.
You are unlimited and unfathomable;
beyond imagination and conception;
eternal and imperishable.
You are indivisible;
and none can see you but with eyes divine.
You always were, You always are,
and You always will be.
You are everywhere, You are in everything, and
You are also beyond everywhere and beyond everything.
You are in the firmament and in the depths,
You are manifest and unmanifest;
on all planes and beyond all planes.
You are in the three worlds,
and also beyond the three worlds.
You are imperceptible and independent.
You are the Creator, the Lord of Lords,
the Knower of all minds and hearts.
You are Omnipotent and Omnipresent.
You are Knowledge Infinite, Power Infinite and Bliss Infinite.
You are the Ocean of Knowledge,
All-knowing, Infinitely knowing;
the Knower of the past, the present and the future,
and You are Knowledge Itself.
You are all-merciful and eternally benevolent.
You are the Soul of souls; the One with infinite attributes.
You are the Trinity of Truth, Knowledge and Bliss.
You are the Source of Truth, the Ocean of Love.
You are the Ancient One, the Highest of the High.
You are Prabhu and Parameshwar;
You are the Beyond God and the Beyond-Beyond God also;
You are Parabrahma; Paramatma; Allah; Elahi; Yezdan;
Ahuramazda; God Almighty, and God the Beloved.
You are named Ezad, the Only One Worthy of Worship.
(Baba had indicted, “I have given these prayers to humanity to recite. They are for all posterity. Whenever anyone recites these prayers, they will be helped spiritually because of My present personal participation.”)
