Om

I always have this tiny (3/8-inch square) silver box 
with me.  Inside is a slip of paper with these Sanskrit
words: Lokha Samasta Sukhino Bavhantu—
a prayer for peace for all beings everywhere.

  1. Meep! How beautiful is this teensy, weensy box, and I'm trying to imagine the teensier, weensier piece of paper inside it. That's a lovely thought to carry with you, Alexa.

  3. How cool is this! Is the box heavy? I am sure your higher power always lightens the load....
