A Chant for Difficult Times

It is said that the chant

“Mookam karoti vaachaalam
Pangum langhayatey girim
Yatkripaa tamaham vandey
Paramaananda Maadhavam”

Can make the cripple climb mountains and the mute speak eloquently. The mantra asks for grace in order to ease someone out of difficult situations. It means:

“I salute that Madhava,
The source of Supreme Bliss,
Whose grace makes the dumb man eloquent
And the cripple cross mountains.”
