Lyrics for June 26 Kirtan

Here’s the lyrics for the Idaho Yoga Co op Kirtan on Sunday Jun 26:

1) Lokah Samasta Sukino Bhavantu – May all beings be happy

2) 23rd Psalm
The Lord is my Shepherd, I have all I need,
She makes me lie down in green meadows,
Beside the still waters, She will lead.

She restores my soul, She rights my wrongs,
She leads me in a path of good things,
And fills my heart with songs.

Even though I walk, through a dark & dreary land,
There is nothing that can shake me,
She has said She won’t forsake me,
I’m in her hand.

She sets a table before me, in the presence of my foes,
She anoints my head with oil,
And my cup overflows.

Surely, surely goodness & kindness will follow me,
All the days of my life,
And I will live in her house,
Forever, forever & ever.

Glory be to our Mother, & Daughter,
And to the Holy of Holies,
As it was in the beginning, is now & ever shall be,
World, without end. Amen

3)W/Kids: Ging gang goolie goolie goolie goolie watcha,
Hayla, hayla shayla, hayla shayla, shayla, oooh.

4) Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkos yoyo’
Standing in the light of Peace

5) Gayatri Mantra:
Om bhur bhuvah svah
tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yonah prachodayat

6) God be with you till we meet again;
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
Neath His wings protecting hide you;
Daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you til we meet again.
When life’s perils thick confound you
Put his arms unfailing round you

Learning New Stars: Capella

When I look towards the North, low in the sky is another twinkly orange-white star and its called Capella.  It’s in the constellation called Auriga.

The character is a nanny goat or a charioteer.  I’ll add some mythology about this star as I find them.

Fall Equinox, Kali, and birth

A new project I want to explore this year is to enjoy the procession of the sun, moon and stars and find the stories, myths and symbolism behind them. I will preference the stories from the Bible and Hindu mythology since those interest me most.

Today is the Fall equinox and that means the sun is entering a time of increasing darkness. This one day is the day of equal balance and then for the next 3 months, the darkness increases a little bit each day.

Indra’s net

The story and some links about Indra’s net.
A traditional Buddhist and Hindu story.

Far, far away, in the abode of the great god Indra, king of heaven, hangs a wondrous vast net, much like a spider’s web in intricacy and loveliness. It stretches out indefinitely in all directions. At each node, or crossing point, of the net hangs a single glittering jewel.

Resisting redemption and deliverance of the captive soul

A rich, nourishing and delightful On Being Podcast is the catalyst for this deeper examination of the Biblical story of Moses and the Exodus.

Moses’ call and mission with the Exodus can be viewed as a symbolic look of how we collectively as mortals resist, refuse and fight God’s invitation to liberation.

Filling the hole in your life

I found a quote that I want to remember. From Goethe:

It is the nature of grace always to fill spaces that have been empty.

I heard it in the context of grief and loss. We must be with the empty feeling of loss and grief without trying to fill it with food, shopping, drinking, drugs, talking, traveling, or other distractions. If we leave the space, then grace or God will fill that space with something that nourishes our soul.
