Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
What a beautiful prayer the Yakut have given to the world (or, perhaps, it is the world that has given it to them). This prayer powerfully evokes unity between the individual and the living totality of nature... The natural world is called upon to give strength, focus, guidance, communion, and finally witness:
All of you see me
One with the world!
A good prayer to carry with you on a walk in the fields or hills or forests. Or even an overgrown lot in the city. Have a beautiful day today, at one with the world!
