Stotras (mystic prayers) and sacred hymns have been composed by sages in their lofty states of divine communion. They have been sung, cherished, reflected upon, and enjoyed by countless devotees, throughout the ages. Thus, they have gathered a mystic potency that is indescribable.
In this book, Garland of Prayers have been strung together like flowers in a garland, to be offered at the Lotus Feet of the Lord. They have been culled from the Garden of Vedic scriptures and the devotional out-pourings of saints—Adi Shankaracharya, St. Tulsidas, Mira, Kabira and others.
