SAINT JOHN 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

SATHYA SAI BABA
Love is the form of Brahman, Brahman is love Divine.

SAINT JOHN 1:1
(as above)

PRAYER OF SAINT FRANCIS
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen

PHILIPIANS 4:7
And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keepe your hearts and minds through Christ Iesus.

Manopubbangama dhamma manosettha manomaya manasa ce padutthena bhasati va karoti va

III - REQUIEM IN VERITATE

DHAMMAPADA 1-6
(
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita)
Mind precedes all mental states.
Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought.
If with an impure mind a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox.
Mind precedes all mental states.
Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If
with a pure mind a person speaks or acts
happiness follows him like his never-departing shadow.
"He abused me, he struck me,
he overpowered me, he robbed me."
Those who harbor such thoughts
do not still their hatred.
"He abused me, he struck me,
he overpowered me, he robbed me."
Those who do not harbor such thoughts
still their hatred.
Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased.
This is a law eternal.
There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die.
But those who do realize this settle their quarrels.

KRISHNA DANCE
The festive r!sa dance commenced, with the gop#s arrayed in a circle. Lord Kr"s"n"a expanded Himself and entered between each pair of gop#s, and as that master of mystic power placed His arms around their necks, each girl thought He was standing next to her alone. The demigods and their wives were overwhelmed with eagerness to witness the r!sa dance, and they soon crowded the sky with their hundreds of celestial airplanes.

THE JESUS PRAYER AND ROUND DANCE
THE ACTS OF JOHN 94, 95 and 96
Glory be to thee, Father.
And we, going about in a ring, answered him: Amen. Glory be to thee, Word:
Glory be to thee, Grace. Amen.
Glory be to thee, Spirit:
Glory be to thee, Holy One:
Glory be to thy glory. Amen.
I would be saved, and I would save. Amen.
I would be loosed, and I would loose. Amen.
I would be wounded, and I would wound. Amen. I would be born, and I
would bear. Amen.
I would eat, and I would be eaten. Amen.
I would hear, and I would be heard. Amen.
I would be thought, being wholly thought. Amen. I would be washed, and I would wash. Amen.
Grace danceth. I would pipe; dance ye all. Amen. I would mourn: lament ye all. Amen.
The number Eight singeth praise withus. Amen. The number Twelve danceth on high. Amen.
The Whole on high hath part in our dancing. Amen.
Whoso danceth not, knoweth not what cometh to pass. Amen.
I would flee, and I would stay. Amen.
I would adorn, and I would be adorned. Amen. I would be united, and I would unite. Amen.
A house I have not, and I have houses. Amen. A place I have not, and I have places. Amen.

A temple I have not, and I have temples. Amen. A lamp am I to thee that beholdest me. Amen. A mirror am I to thee that perceivest me. Amen. A door am I to thee that knockest at me. Amen. A way am I to thee a wayfarer Amen.

NOTES

KYRIE ELEISON

The Meaning of Kyrie Eleison by Anthony M. Coniaris

The word mercy in English is the translation of the Greek word eleos. This word has the same ultimate root as the old Greek word for oil, or more precisely, olive oil; a substance which was used extensively as a soothing agent for bruises and minor wounds. The oil was poured onto the wound and gently massaged in, thus soothing, comforting and making whole the injured part. The Hebrew word which is also translated as eleos and mercy is hesed, and means steadfast love. The Greek words for ‘Lord, have mercy,’ are ‘Kyrie, eleison’ that is to say, ‘Lord, soothe me, comfort me, take away my pain, show me your steadfast love.’ Thus mercy does not refer so much to justice or acquittal a very Western interpretation but to the infinite loving-kindness of God, and his compassion for his suffering children! It is in this sense that we pray ‘Lord, have mercy,’ with great frequency throughout the Divine Liturgy.
