My generation looked Eastward,
traveled to Rishikesh, Kyoto, Katmandu,
brought home gifts of Yoga, Vedanta,
meditation, pranayam -
thank you, thank you.
This generation looks Southward,
travels to Cusco, Volcano Poaz, the Amazon,
brings home gifts of the Shaman,
songs of the forest -
thank you, thank you.
Where will the next generation go?
Perhaps they'll look Omward,
travel into the heart,
bring back gifts of Presence -
this moment, this body, this breath.
Thank you.
