saying service

May 9th, 2011

Too many people are hurting to keep this to myself. If you need me to say a service for you or someone you care for, please add the name in the comments below. To see the syllabic transliteration of the chant I say in this video, click this link.



  1. Hi Maezen, Maggie is sicky sick. We’ve been up all night. Pink eye, fever, coughing, throwing up. We’ve all been sick for what seems like months. I guess it’s to be expected when your kid starts going to preschool. Anyway, a service would be appreciated today. Thank you, thank you. Namaste.

  7. Today was a day of bad news and huge loneliness. And so I thought of your service, and how you added “for you and Kenji” in your comment. Because I feel like right now like I have no one to ask something ‘just’ for myself… With you, I feel free to ask. And thank you endlessly for being there.
