Earth Prayer

The mountains, I become part of it.
The herbs, the fir tree, I become part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters,
I become part of it.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen,
I become part of it.
Navajo Chant


In the News: Expo - Acroliti Morgantina

From the article: "The senses will reveal to visitors the visual beauty - through the exhibition's location showcasing the Acroliti of Morgantina representing the Greek divinities of Demetra and Kore (about 530 BC) from the museum of Aidone (Enna), ready to be taken to Expo in Milan.. . With their solemn look, supernatural and mysterious, fascinating and charming, human and natural, the two goddesses will represent Sicily. Behind their strongly enigmatic smile there is a society that has produced it and one that has inherited today its territories and history, culture and knowledge. Sicily will thus have the face of the goddesses."

Invocation to Lalita

Homage to the one who
Shines like a thousand rising suns,
Endowed with four arms,
Wielding a noose of love
And flashing goad of anger,
A sugarcane bow of mind
And five arrows of the five subtle elements,
Flooding the universe with her dawn-red splendor,
With campaka, asoka and punnaga flowers
Adorning her fragrant, shining tresses,
Whose crown is glorious with rubies
Who is enchanting, her ears adorned
With clusters of kadamba blossoms.
(text from Sri Lalita Sahasranama, trans. Shaw)


Happy Pink Moon

Blessings of the Full Moon in Libra;
May the eclipse reveal that which you have hidden from yourself.
