Sri Isopanisad - Invocation

om purnam adah purnam idam
purnat purnam udacyate

purnasya purnam adaya

purnam eva vasisyate

om--the Complete Whole; purnam--perfectly complete; adah--that; purnam--perfectly complete;
idam--this phenomenal world; purnat--from the all-perfect; purnam--complete unit;
udacyate--is produced; purnasya--of the Complete Whole; purnam--completely, all;
adaya--having been taken away; purnam--the complete balance; eva--even; avasisyate--is remaining.

Translation - The absolute Truth is perfect and complete, and because He is completely perfect,
all emanations from Him, such as this phenomenal world, are perfectly equipped as complete wholes.

Gurvastakam

samsara dava nala lidha loka
tranaya ka runya ghana ghanatvam
praptasya kalya na gunarna vasya
vande guroh sri chara nara vindam

Translation - 

The spiritual master is receiving benediction from the ocean of mercy.
Just as a cloud pours water on a forest fire to extinguish it,
so the spiritual master delivers the materially afflicted world by
extinguishing the blazing fire of material existence.
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such
a spiritual master, who is an ocean of auspicious qualities.
