Shaman Contemporary Inheritance - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

understanding of what
a mantra may symbolize
how it may function

differs throughout
various traditions
depends on context

in which mantra is
written sounded
mantra instances

may attain multiple
layers of symbolism
associated with not

one but each sound
many code vibrate specific
to particular schools

of thought past shaman
before Hindu Buddhist
traditions practiced chants

to nature life spirits
differing conceived realities
multilayered existence

petroglyphs shamans
created in an altered
state of consciousness
