Prayer for absence from widow hood
(This is a great prayer chanted by Savithri , the wife of Sthyavan addressed to goddess Gayathri to save the life of her husband. The great Sengalipuram Anantha Rama Deekshithar recommends this stotra to be chanted daily after bath.)
1.Omkara poorvike devi , veena pusthaka dharini ,
Veda mathar namasthubhyam , avaidhavyam prayachame.
1.Oh Goddess with “Om” prefixed to her name , who holds the Veena and the book,
I salute you oH mother of Vedas, Please grant me the absence of widowhood.
2.Pathivrathe , maha bhage , bharthruscha priyaVadhini,
Avaidhavyam cha saubhagyam dehi thwam mama suvruthe,
Puthraan pouthraanscha saukhyam cha saumangalyam dehi may.
2.Oh Goddess who is dedicated to her husband , oh lucky one ,
Who tells words that pleases her husband and who has made virtue her penance ,
You please grant me absence of widowhood and all round prosperity,
And also sons, grand sons , pleasant life and auspicious state.
