As the First Planetary Hour Ruler is Venus today, 06 04 18, and Shukra syat Gana Nayako Bhagavathee... The Eightfold Verse about the Mother Divine
Like Socrates who said " I know nothing, not even my own ignorance", Sankara was also known for his humility. "I know not Philosophy, Literature or Science " , he says in his poem, Bhavani Ashtakam. I am one of the worst beings and my only refuge is Thee !
Neither do I know how to donate,
Nor Meditation transcendental
Neither do I know Tantra,
Nor the stanzas of prayer great,
Worshipping is unknown to me ,
Nor do I know the art of yoga, Thou art my only Refuge , O Mother Divine !
