LULLABY

VERSE 1 (Solo)
Words tired of their meanings
Embrace a sleepy lullaby

nothing to be done. Everything is one.
Thoughts tumble over feelings
Dreams wash across an endless sky
This life shines like a million suns, there's
nothing to be done. Everything is one.

Om Namah Shivaya, Om Namah Shivaya,
Om Namah Shivaya, Om Namah Shiva - ya,
Om Namah Shivaya.

VERSE 2 (Solo)
Time stops with every meeting,
Eternity greets every day.
This life shines like a million suns, there's
nothing to be done. Everything is one.
In laughter and in weeping,
Love knows how all its children play.
This life shines like a million suns, there's
nothing to be done. Everything is one.

CHANT (All)
Om Namah Shivaya, Om Namah Shivaya,
Om Namah Shivaya, Om Namah Shiva - ya,
Om Namah Shivaya.

OM CHANTING

[ Instructions: Repeat the sound OM slowly, at your own pace and pitch, overlapping naturally with everyone else. Take a breather if and when needed and then continue.]

Please note that due to time constraints some of the above chants might have to be ommitted on the night, particularly if other chants or music meditations continue for longer than anticipated. We'll go with the flow.
