A bittersweet episode posted to you from San Salvador, El Salvador. The theme for this week’s class is authenticity, in sanskrit, aucitya (I certainly hope that I spelled that correctly.) I used Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter and his sudden death as a jumping off point for my theme. What’s so strange is that I recorded this class on September 28th and September 29th my grandpa passed away. I listened to what I said about Steve and thought, I could have used my grandfather instead. If there is a word to describe my Grandfather it’s authentic. He was all that he could be all the time, and he continued to grow and become more until the very end.

and finally the translation for the prayer:
O My God, this sick one that is here before You, has come here to ask you what he desires, and that which he thinks is the most important for himself. You, O God, help to have these words enter his heart: ‘It is more important to be of a healthy soul.’ Lord, may your blessed will be done in every way! If you want me to heal, then heal me, but if your will is different than that, may I continue to carry my cross. We ask you also for all of those that pray.
Somehow I feel I didn’t do the prayer justice, for some of the juice was lost in translation. Oh well.
