O Adorable Lord of Mercy and Love !
Salutations and prostrations unto Thee.
Thou art Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.
Thou art Sat-Chit-Ananda (Existence-Knowledge-Bliss).
Thou art the Indweller of all beings.

Grant us an understanding heart,
Equal vision, balanced mind,
Faith, devotion and wisdom.
Grant us inner spiritual strength
To resist temptations and to control the mind.
Free us from egoism, lust, greed, anger and hatred.
Fill our hearts with divine virtues.

Let us behold Thee in all these names and forms.
Let us serve Thee in all these names and forms.
Let us ever remember Thee.
Let us ever sing Thy glories.
Let Thy Name ever be on our lips.
Let us abide in Thee for ever and ever.

Oriya Rendering :

विश्‍व-प्रार्थना

मूळ इंग्राजी रचना : स्वामी शिवानन्द
ओड़िआ पद्यानुवाद : डा. हरेकृष्ण मेहेर
=============================
 
हे विश्‍व-बन्द्य ईश्‍वर  कृपा-प्रेममय !
साष्टाङ्ग प्रणाम तब  पादे सबिनय ॥

सच्चिदानन्द-स्वरूप  तुमे भगबान,
सर्बब्यापक सर्बज्ञ  सर्बशक्तिमान ॥

बिराजि अछ अन्तरे  सकळ भूतर,
प्रभो ! शुभ बुद्धि आम  हृदये बितर ॥

सम-दृष्टि सम-चित्त  श्रद्धा भक्ति ज्ञान,
आमरि हृदये सदा  कर हे प्रदान ॥

प्रलोभनर दमन  सङ्गते मनर
संयम पाइँ अध्य़ात्म  शक्ति दान कर ॥

अहङ्कार काम क्रोध  लोभ द्वेष नाशि,
भरिदिअ हृदे आम  दिव्य गुणराशि ॥

करुँ तब दर्शन ए  सर्ब रूपे नामे,
सर्ब रूपे नामे तब  सेबा करुँ आमे ॥

तब सुमरणा करुँ  हृदये निरत,
तब य़शोराशि गान  करुँ अबिरत ॥

स्फुरु तब नाम सदा  अधरे आमर,
प्रभो ! तुमठारे बास  करुँ निरन्तर ॥
