Waking Up Prayer in Hindu Religion

There is a very important waking up prayer in Hindu religion which ushers in peace, prosperity and happiness for the entire day. The prayer is

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मीः करमध्ये सरस्वती
करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम

Karagre vasate Lakshmi, karamadhye Saraswati
Karamule tu Govinda, Prabhate Karadarshanam 

The prayer has to be chanted at looking the palms of hands. Meditate looking at the hands for few minutes after the prayer. Next is to rub the face with the palm three times.

Please note that there are two alternatives to the above prayer one in which instead of Govinda it is Gouri who is invoked and in another instead of Govinda it Brahma who is invoked.

The Gouri Alternative Prayer

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मीः करमध्ये सरस्वती ।
करमूले स्थिता गौरी, मंगलं करदर्शनम् ॥

Karagre vasate Lakshmi, karamadhye Saraswati
Karamule sthita Gouri, mangalam Karadarshanam 

The Brahma alternative prayer

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मिः करमध्ये सरस्वति ।
करमूले स्थितो ब्रह्मा, प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥

Karagre vasate Lakshmi, karamadhye Saraswati
Karamule sthito Brahma, Prabhate Karadarshanam
