The Whorled

Rachel Satterfield

Invocation

Pavamana Mantra Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

asato mā sad gamaya
tamaso mā jyotir gamaya
mṛtyor māmṛtaṃ gamaya

 

Guide me from the unreal to the real

From the darkness to the light

From death to immortality

 

Guide me from the fake news, jealousy, delusion, and lies to real love, truth telling and kindness.

From behind darkened curtains and covers pulled over my head to gazing, fearless, at the sun.

From my changing mortal body to experiences of the unchanging bliss.
