Simple Sanskrit Slokas for Kids

1. Positive thinking can change your whole day

When you wake up, keep your two palms side by side together and say this prayer and look at the specific part of the adjoined palms:

Karaagre Vasathe Lakshmi (looking at the top edge of the palms)
Kara Madhye Saraswati (looking at the middle area of the palms)
Kara Mulay Sthithe Gauri (looking at the bottom of the palms-close to wrists)
Prabhaate Kara Darshanam (closing the two palms together)

What it means:
At the top edge of our palms is where the Goddess of wealth Lakshmi can be found
At the middle is the Goddess of knowledge Saraswati resides
At the bottom of the palms is where Gauri, the Universal Goddess of Power and strength is present. Let us start the day with a full view of our own hands.
It can be interpreted that we have everything Gods can give us in our own hands.
