The Power of Prayer

Nine days ago I encountered a monk chanting for peace in Tibet. This morning three guys were chanting for something else. The guy on the left would begin the chant on a single monotone note, then the other two would follow, all on one steady note, their words measured and overlapping. "Ohmmmmmmm_ _I_ _want_ _to_ _manifest_ _an_ _encounter_ _with_ _dolphins_ _ohmmmmmmmm_ _I_ _don't_ _want_ _to_ _wait_ _ohmmmmmmmmmm_ _I_ _want_ _it_ _today_ _ohmmmmmmmm." I'm not kidding, this was their actual chant! But all to no avail, no dolphins today.
