From the 7th Maṇḍala of the Ṛg Veda dedicated entirely to the mantras of Ṛṣi Vaṣiṣṭha, Bhāgya Sūktam is a morning mantra also known as prātaḥ sūktam or morning hymn.
Let us call Bhaga, who is strong and victorious, powered by all that is true, right and good to come and displace ignorance and all falsehood in us. Bhaga has a wealth of Truth, come and manifest for us the knowledge and energy for this Truth. May the dawn bring to us Bhaga.
