Sit a Moment

~by Ananda Vrindavan devi dasi


Come mind, let’s sit together

And chant the holy name

I know you’ll find more

Interesting things to do

You’ll wander here and there

But I’ll pull you back with affection

Don’t you know your dreaming

Is nothing compared to this moment

With this mantra?

Just once chanting is ten thousand times better

Than what you can imagine

Or where you think happiness lies

And the fears that you slip away to?

Turn your back on them and

Soak in this mantra of love

Things will soften, fears will lessen

But wait, where are you now?

And how did you get there?

Come mind, sit with me again

And chant the holy name

For this moment is always

The only moment we have

Let’s make it count,

And let’s make it work, together
