Zikr melody by Zuleikha ©SwanLake Publishing

Words: “Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah”

Zikr is the Islamic practice of repeating a holy phrase so that one may remember the presence of the One. As one deepens in
the singing, one may experience this presence in a profoundly personal way.

05 Eyn Od

Text: Traditional Hebrew
Composer: Rabbi Pamela Adinah Meira Frydman

Repetition of this holy phrase of Judaism taken from the words of Moses serves to attune one to the divine presence in precisely
the same way as the does the Allah zikr sung previously.

Words: “The secret of God is hidden in the knowledge of Unity. The knowledge of God is beyond all Reason.”

The text is based on the aphorism offered for October 11th in the Bowl of Saki of Hazrat Inayat Khan. It reminds us that the scope
of the divine presence exceeds the capacity of our limited minds to fathom it.

14 Kwan Zeon Bosai
Download

Text: Traditional Buddhist
Music: Traditional

Words: “Kwan Zeon Bosai,
Kwan Zeon Bosai,
Kwan Zeon Bosai,
Kwan Zeon Bo.”

Our community has sung this Korean version of the invocation of Kwan Yin, the female Bodhisattva of Compassion, for many years.

15 Take Me Away from Myself
Download

Text: Ibn ‘Arabi
Music: Elias Amidon
Arrangement: Aslan Sattler

Words: “Take me away from myself and be my Being.
Take me away from myself and be my Being.
Then shall you see everything through my eyes.
Then shall you see everything through my eyes.

Verses: “Then shall you touch everything through my hands.”
“Then shall you love everything through my heart.”
“Then shall you bless everything through my soul.”

One can experience God clearly in the
outer world and feel God clearly in one’s
inner world, yet at the same time, wedged
in between the reality of God outside and
inside, there is a ‘me’ that keeps demanding
attention. Ibn ‘Arabi speaks to this longing
to be free of one’s me-ness in this prayer.
