"Graciously bestow upon all men felicity, the summit of which is the knowledge of the Gods." [Julian, Oration to the Mother of the Gods]

A visit from the Princess of the Wisdom Lake

Just finished an amazing weekend well spent at the P’howa retreat sponsored by Dungkar Ling in Honeybrook, PA. The retreat was led by Chagdud Khadro, who, for my money, is a living breathing emanation of Lady Tsogyal. This was the very last stop on her 2009 North America teaching tour.

What is P’howa?? I couldn’t begin to describe it in words, but the song Remind Us by Over the Rhine really captures and expresses how I am feeling right now as I bask in the glow.

Remind Us
I don’t know where this is going
I’m taking a ride on a wing and a prayer
Follow me there
We’ll both be surprised
If we forget anything
Hopefully nobody will remind us

Can’t bear the news in the evening
We’re going to bed and we’re going to war
All of this for
Anyone’s guess
If we forget anything
Heaven forbid someone would remind us

Sinners and saints, priests and kings
Are we just using God for our own gain
What’s in a name
Open your eyes
If we forget everything
There will be no one left to remind us

I don’t know where this is going
I’m taking a ride on a wing and a prayer
Follow me there
We’ll both be surprised.

Remind Us by Over the Rhine
