Mantra to Be Chanted On Waking Up and Before Putting Your Feet on Earth

As per Hindu religion, Earth is mother – Bhu Devi. We stamp on her. There is a mantra to be chanted daily after waking up and before putting our feet on earth. It is like asking the forgiveness of Mother Earth. One should wake up just before sunrise and chant the mantra. The mantra is:


समुद्रवसने देवि पर्वतस्तन मंडिते। 
विष्णुपत्नि नमस्तुभ्यं पादस्पर्श क्षमस्व में।।

One need to always be thankful to mother earth for nourishing us.

Earth, in which lie the sea, the river, and other waters, in which food and cornfields have come to be, in which lives all that breathes and that moves, may she confer on us the finest of her yield. Earth, in which the waters, common to all, moving on all sides, flow unfailingly, day and night, may she pour on us milk in many streams, and endow us with luster. (From the Atharva Veda - Hymn to the Earth - Bhumi-Sukta)
May those born of thee, O Earth, be for our welfare, free from sickness and waste, wakeful through a long life, we shall become bearers of tribute to thee. Earth my mother, set me securely with bliss in full accord with heaven, O wise one, uphold me in grace and splendor. (From the Atharva Veda - Hymn to the Earth - Bhumi-Sukta)
