Shamanism Hinduism Source Waters? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

orally transmitted poetic hymns
in Hinduism 'Om' is source
waters the 'pranava mantra' is

the source of all mantras
the concept of nama-rupa is
mind-body which supposes

all things
ideas entities
in existence

within phenomenological cosmos
have name have form of differing kinds
the most basic name form in existence

is the primordial vibration of Om
first manifested nama-rupa of Brahman
unmanifest reality or unreality states

before existence
beyond existence
is only One reality

that which appears is
first manifestation
of Brahma in existence

'Om' prefixed suffixed
to all Hindu prayers
mantras may extend expand

invoke individual Gods principles
but all circle ultimately focus
on the One reality as fundamental

most powerful mantra 'Om' source
shaman circles to nature life spirits
embraces differing conceived realities...

multilayered existence
petroglyphs shamans
created consciousness...

directed focused sourced
leading from birth ignorance
to life learned truth lessons...

'From ignorance, lead me to truth;
From darkness, lead me to light;
From death, lead me to immortality

Om peace, peace, peace'
echoes shaman harmonies
sought balance life realities
