, our hearts were full to overflowing. The airport restaurant had become a sacred temple and we all just wanted time to stop right then and there.

We wanted this moment to last forever—and it does, as the sweetest and most sacred memory. Needless to say, I have loved this chant ever since!

with others who will be listening at the same time.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for the gifts you give us each day via the website.
