THE GREAT MANTRA

———————————-

More than a mantra

More than a phrase of faith

More than the Soul’s initiation

Into a universe of grace….

This mantra beyond all mantras

This phrase beyond all phrases

It is the song of THE SELF

Merging with the INFINITE ONE:

LORD KRISHNA! LORD RAMA!

“Interfaith”

By: Forrest Rivers

“Interfaith”

Listen now as Krishna speaks

Through the wisdom of your third eye,

The Rastas’ focus is on “we”

But firmly rooted in I and I,

Native souls find God in Earth

The water and trees are our true guides,

Look to Christ when you are weak

 Jesus hears your inner cries,

The Buddha taught to look within

And be present all the time,

Mohammad spoke of eternal bliss

In the now and afterlife,

It is God’s pure knowledge which all faiths seek

Let us embrace this common tie—-

And work for peace.
