Morning Prayers

Karagre vasate Lakshmi karmadhye Saraswati |

Karmule tu Govindah, prabhate karadarsanam ||

The front part of the hands (the  finger tips) are ascribed to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, the middle part (the palm proper) to Goddess Saraswati - the Goddess of learning and the root (the part of of hand near the wrist) to Govinda (God).  Therefore, every morning, one should have a respectful look at one's hand which symbolizes honest labor.
