The Divine Mother Prayer Dance is a ritual dance that was created especially for Swami Radha, of Yasodhara Ashram.
In her secular life, Swami Radha was a renowned professional dancer. This is a skill she turned to devotion as sacred dance to the Divine.
The dance is performed with Mudras - that is, sacred and meaningful gestures of the body. Unfortunately, these are very difficult to explain in written form. If you'd like to learn the Divine Mother Prayer Dance mudras, it is taught through Radha Centres and Yasodhara Ashram. (Links open in new windows.)
But even when recited without the dance, the Divine Mother Prayer has incredible potential to reconnect you with the Goddess Within.
I recommend saying or dancing it several times in a row, before beginning your day.
This is the short form of the Divine Mother Prayer. There is a longer version, below, that invokes the Goddess in four of Her many forms, and expands the devotional part.
How to Pray with the Divine Mother Prayer Dance

Every aspect of that is a gift from Divine Mother, and when you show Her this prayer dance, She receives not only the gift of your prayer, but the understanding that you value these wonderful gifts.
