Om Hrīm Ritam By Swami Vivekananda
This is a Sanskrit hymn to Sri Ramakrishna, composed by Swami Vivekananda.
The brilliance of Swami Vivekananda is seen in providing us with the three vital mantra for praying to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa. Such a stotra which has a mantra hidden inside is called ‘Mantra Garbha Stotra’.
These prayers are from the sādhusaṁkuli tantra and are titled ग्रहपुरश्चरण प्रयोगः (grahapuraścaraṇa prayogaḥ)
ॐ रक्तपद्मासनं देवं चतुर्बाहुसमन्वितम् ।
क्षत्रियं रक्तवर्नञच गोत्रं काश्यपसम्भवं॥
सप्ताश्वरथमारूढं प्रचण्डं सर्वसिद्धिदम् ।
द्विभुजं रक्तपद्मैश्च संयुक्तं प्र्माद्भुतं॥
कलिञगदेशजं देवं मौलिमाणिक्यभूषणम् ।
त्रिनेत्रं तेजसा पूर्णमुदयाचलसंस्थितं॥
द्वादशाञगुल-विस्तीर्णं प्रबरं घृतकौशिकम् ।
शिवाधिदैवं पुर्वास्यं ब्रह्मप्रत्यधिदैवतं॥

A childhood habit that has always stood the test of time, is the Guru Vandana. This was learnt at a young age and one does not need any ritual, time nor place to recite it. However, we have done this everyday – loudly when younger and silently when older. Hope you all benefit from this. All mantras and remedies start working, no matter how bad the dasha or evil the transit, Gurudeva always makes things work for the better. Kindly forgive the typo’s and email me firstname.lastname@example.org for corrections.
Radha (Sanskrit: राधा, Rādhā), also called Rādhikā, Radharani and Radhika-rani, is almost always depicted alongside Krishna and features prominently within the theology of today’s Vallabha, Utkaliya and Gaudiya Vaishnava sects, which regards Radha as the original Goddess or Shakti. Radha is also the principal god of worship in the Nimbarka Sampradaya, as Nimbarka, the founder of the tradition, declared that Radha and Krishna together constitute the absolute truth.
Please note that Radha is not mentioned anywhere in books like Bhagavata Purana,Vishnu Purana, Harivamsha or Mahabharata.
