Aramaic-the language of Jesus and his disciples-has captured the imagination of seekers from every faith and spiritual tradition. Since the publication of his bestseller Prayers of the Cosmos, Aramaic scholar Dr. Neil Douglas-Klotz has become a foremost expert at uncovering the rich layers of meaning found in Jesus's native wisdom sayings.
Now, in Blessings of the Cosmos, this renowned author presents a collection of all-new translations of Jesus's best-loved benedictions and invocations for peace, healing, divine connection, and more, including:
- Come unto me, all ye that labor -blessings to renew and rededicate your life's sacred vocation
- Ask, and it shall be given you -discovering your origin in the source of Love itself
- Jesus's parting words to the disciples, from the blessing of greater works to the many mansions teaching to the great commandment on love, and more
- Jesus' Beatitudes in Luke-blessings for our inner being
- Plus an 80-minute CD with 20 guided Aramaic body prayers, similar to the traditional Middle Eastern practices that Jesus himself used to generate spiritual energy and insight
Whether for personal inspiration or for communal worship and rites of passage, Blessings of the Cosmos offers you a heart-opening prayerbook that offers guidance and encouragement toward an ever-deepening daily experience of the Divine.
