today on a hill - Atharva Veda XIX

When I took this picture today, my children appeared to be seeds carried away by the wind, or small animals venturing away from a nest.

This I wish for them -

May the atmosphere we breath

breath fearlessness into us:

fearlessness on earth

and fearlessness in heaven!

May fearlessness guard us

behind and before!

May fearlessness surround us

above and below!

May we be without fear

of friend and foe!

May we be without fear

by night and by day!

Let all the world be my friend!

- Atharva Veda XIX, 15
