A Lesson In Surrendering

Every morning either one of the Center volunteers or myself opens the Center with prayers. The prayers are a combination of the Himalayan Tradition’s Vedic prayers said in Sanskrit and the Christian Prayer of St Francis of Assisi.

This morning I opened the Center and began to pray in adoration of the Lord of Life, asking the Ultimate Teacher of Life (my Guru) to be actively present here and to enliven me with a true joy of service to all who would enter the Center. In the enlivening prayer, we pray that The Teacher of Life (God, Brahman in Sanskrit) lead us from the unreal to the real, from darkness to light and from mortality to immortality.
