Bjork - Jesus Prayer
A video of John Tavener's 'Prayer of the Heart' which he wrote especially for Bjork (an Icelandic singer/songwriter). It is a stunning setting of the 'Jesus Prayer' - "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me".

The Merton Center
I don't know why it took me so long to get to The Merton Center in Louisville. I've been in and out of KY several times over the yea...
Thank you for sharing this mesmerizing video. Very meditative. Amazing.ReplyDelete
I first learned of this prayer from my Vedanta teacher, who advised me to read "The Way of a Pilgrim". I've used it many times since, sometimes I can remember vividly when and where, eventually it gets into your sleep.ReplyDelete
Icelandic is cool.
Wonderful. Bjork's rendition of the prayer seems child-like, going back into time like the NASA advent photographs do, getting closer and closer to our origin.ReplyDelete
Amazing, Beth... So very powerful...ReplyDelete
And the idea of using Mandelbrot sets as the visual was truly inspired..
Thank you. So we fly ...together.ReplyDelete
