A daily collection of verses from the Vedas, Hinduism's revealed scripture
Rig Veda I, 23
Yours, O King, are solaces a hundred, a thousand! Great and far-reaching be also your favors! Drive far away from us baneful Destruction. Remove from us whatever sin we have committed.
Rig Veda I, 24, 9
Loosen the bonds, O Varuna, which bind us, which crush us, cramping our every movement. Make us sinless in respect to your Holy Law, unbound for Boundlessness, O son of Aditi.
Rig Veda I, 24, 15
Whatever law of yours, O God Varuna, we, being mortal men, may violate day after day, do not consign us, we beg, as prey to death or to your own fierce anger, to be destroyed by reason of your displeasure.
Rig Veda I, 25, 1
Give us, Lord, a share of sunlight, of waters, freedom from sin and communion with the living. Do not tarnish the joy of our hearts for we have put our trust in your name.
Rig Veda I, 104, 6
