Baku Mani

Baku mani bata fun manya
Mini fa lay la ah
Aka doy ekka lakka jugu kay ne yay
Mini fa lay la ah

(Translation: “I don’t want to carry the water to the village. OK, I’ll carry it.”)

As I Breathe

(Shared by Joya Winwood at Mothersong)

As I breathe,
I know who I am.
As I breathe,
I know who I am.

I am the flame.
I am the name.
I am the flame.
I am the name.

A river of joy
flows from my heart to you
Rock me in your arms,
divine mother.

Peace of the River

I take delight in the peace of the river
Flowing so gently to the strength of the sea
I take delight in the love that is flowing
Just like a river between you and me

Notes:

From Witchcamp booklet and also appears in “Partner Earth: A Spiritual Ecology” by Pam Montgomery but I am not sure who wrote it.
