HAPPY BIRTHDAY GÊ MARQUES
In the Santo Daime tradition we like to believe that happiness -- like love and peace and health -- is something to be made through practice. The festas are spiritual practices, work-parties of joy. This weekend provided the opportunity to celebrate, at one of the several São Paulo Daime centers, the birthday of Reino do Sol's much-loved guiding teacher, Gê Marques.
It arrived at the end, but let's begin this post with the party...
Here are some excerpts from the spiritual party that preceded the birthday celebration. The hymns are from the Hinario, Primeiro Lição (First Lesson) of Gê.
And here's the slideshow.
VIVA! OS TODOS ANIVERSÁRIOS
