Sanskrit Dream

Some dreams are very vivid, and there’s some I can’t recall,

but last night I dreamed in Sanskrit and I understood it all.

Asanas and yamas were floating through my head.

I completely comprehended each word not being said.

Cross-legged Maharishi floating inches from the ground.

I barely even blinked when he gifted me my sound.

Sometimes I’m late for a math test, running through an endless hall,

but last night I dreamed in Sanskrit and I understood it all.

A room full of low sweet sounds drifting softly to my ear,

sinking deep into my brain, and becoming crystal clear.

George Harrison touched the guru and then slowly walked away.

As he passed me on my mat he whispered “Namaste.”

Once I was Debbie Gibson and I was singing in the mall,

but last night I dreamed in Sanskrit and I understood it all.

The elephant in the corner held his hands out, like a bowl,

saying “Aum Gam Ganapataye Namaha”, his words became my soul.

I breathed in Om and breathed out Sah, as I lifted off the floor,

and followed the sound of the mantra as it drifted through the door.

Sometimes I’m on the edge a cliff, and I wake just as I fall.

Last night I dreamed in Sanskrit.

And I understood it.

    Hello, during our yoga exercises in a fitness club we heard music accompanying us, so soft, smoth with spoken words like prayers.
    Some one told me, that it is from Eva Primal. Can I buy it? I just need the titel.

    Can anyone inform me about the titel of the CD? Thank you very much.

  11. I love the music from Eva Primal, accompanying my/our Yoga exercises. I am a beginner. Thanks a lot.

  12. As soon as I started to read this poem, it was me. I write yoga poems as well, and it was very much my style. Great work, keep it up.
