Rain is what nourishes us, the land, the waters and life. I am so thankful for the rains of this year where I live. I would like to send some to the parched lands. This mandala book is a rain prayer for the dry lands and the dry hearts we sometimes have.

And to end this prayer for rain  is an additional one from 2012 when the Midwest was having a terrible drought.

May these thoughts go to the other places that now need the waters from heaven to rain down on earth.

COMING SOON –  A MONTH OF MANDALAS
It has been awhile since a 100 Days of Mandalas session was going on.  I wanted to do something similar, but not have it going on over the busy end of year holidays.  During the last mandala get together Tina suggested doing a “Month of Mandalas”.  Perfect.  It will start on the fall equinox September 22nd.

    Dear Linda,
    I came across this website at the perfect time and have been so inspired by all of your offerings. I am part the the International Day of Peace committee here in Carmichael, CA. On Sept. 21 we will be holding a Peace festival with music, speakers, vendors, a shoe labyrinth that will later donate shoes to families in need. I got the idea of having a community Sand Mandala for World Peace, inspired by the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. On ours attendees, both adults and children, will add their creative energies by filling in the blueprint with colored sands. I had been meditating on the design when I saw your page on the Tibetan monks that built the mandala for peace in St. Louis. It gave me all of the elements I needed to create ours. I am so thankful! I also love your little book and beautiful poem on bringing rain. We so need rain in California now and I do believe our thoughts greatly influence our world. Thank you for your rich creative contributions and offerings. I would love to meet you and do some creative play together. Everything you write and draw about resonates with me and the work I do.
    Blessings and Gratitude,
    Ellen

      Ellen,
      I’m so glad you found my blog – at the perfect time. Best wishes for your International Day of Peace in Carmichael. The labyrinth and mandala sound wonderful.
      My thoughts and prayers are for rain for so many parts of the world, but especially for California. My son and daughter-in-law live in a dry CA area so when I visit I see the dry earth and wish for rain.
      Perhaps someday we will get to do some creative play together. Life always brings wonderful connections. Blessings to you and your work.
      LINDA
