“Let my idle chatter be the muttering of prayer,

my every manual movement the execution of ritual gesture,

my walking a ceremonial circumambulation,

my eating and other acts the rite of sacrifice,

my lying down prostration in worship,

my every pleasure enjoyed with dedication of myself,

let whatever activity is mine be some form of worship of you.”

~ आदि शङ्कराआचार्य

These words of worship, written by early 8th century Indian philosopher and theologian Adi Shankaracharya, resonate… deciphering then translating the sensation in my heart.
