Two monks dressed in golden robes, turn their heads up and smile knowingly as they say,
“It’s the little things in life, all your small reactions – that create your Karma.
I sigh and wonder what has brought on this drama, and what I can do to clear my karma.
The monks keep smiling, gently blending flowers and herbs in a lustrous bowl.
“Sing a mantra”, they say. They hold up some examples in case I don’t know one.
“I already know some”, I say. I bow to show my gratitude, and sing with my heart.
