Shloka for Early Morning

This is the mantra to recite immediately after you wake up and before you get down from bed.

கராக்ரே வசதே லக்ஷ்மி
கரமத்யே சரஸ்வதி
கரமூலே ஸ்திதா கௌரி
ப்ரபாதே கர தர்ஷனம்.

Goddess Lakshmi who is residing on the finger tips; Goddess Saraswati who is residing on the mid palm; Goddess Durga who is residing on the lower end of the palm – I am having a darshan of you three Sakthi-Forms to worship you in this early morning.
