Do you sit for a few minutes in the temple premises after darshan?The ancient traditional practice is to sit for a few moments in the temple premises after the darshan. There is a "Prarthana" attached to this tradition while sitting in the premises after the darshan. We have to do the darshan with utmost piety and have a good look at the diety. After the darshan is over, one has to sit in a calm place, close the eyes, visualise the diety and do the below mentioned Prarthana to the God.
" Anaayesaena maranam, Vinaa dhainyaena jeevanam, Daehi mae Kripayaa shambho, Thvaya bhakthim achanchalam."
This is a prayer to Lord Shiva, requesting him to give a painless death, a life without any misery and a total devotion towards Lord Shiva.
Do not forget to do this prayer after the darshan and before leaving the premises. We are not asking for any material benefit. I am sharing this as I received the message from a friend and liked it very much.
