My prayer for you

I want to share with you all this song that I’m listening in the last period. The singer is an italian songwiter, Franco Battiato, that created wonderful music that goes from pop, to progressive rock, and electronic and classical music for orchestra.

In the year 1991 he wrote a song “L’ombra della luce” (“the shadow of the light”). All along interested in other cultures (a lot in sufism) ,Battiato  in the next year, the 1992, hold a concert in Baghdad,  in the national theatre, to support an initiative for Iraqi infancy “A bridge to Baghdad”.

The song is inspired from “The tibetan book of the dead” a sacred tibetan book, and it’s a prayer to God. Originally the song is in italian, but here for the occasion, he sings in arabic (I don't know which one actually, it should be the most formal one).

Why I really like this song is also because, as I found perfectly explained in a comment on youtube: “The forces of love and of spiritual knowledge and of art don’t find obstacle in the diversity but they found in it richness indeed”.

I hope you’ll enjoy it, that's for you all.


Protect me from the forces of evil,
At night, asleep, when I am unconscious;
When I am uncertain of my way.
And never leave me...
Never, never leave me!
Bear me up to the loftiest heights
in one of realms of peace;
It's time to leave this cycle of life.
And never leave me...
Never, never leave me!
For the joys of the deepest affection,
Or of the heart's gentiest yearnings
Are only the shadow of the light.
Remind me how unhappy I am
Far from your laws,
Teach me how not to waste the time that is left to me.
And never leave me...
Never,never leave me!
For the peace I have felt in certain monasteries,
Or the vibrant joining of all the senses in joyful
Are only the shadow of the light.
