Arabic prayers sound a lot like Sanskrit Shlokas…

And I don’t understand either.

  1. There is a beautiful mosque right next to dad’s apartment… I think the prayer sounds really beautiful!

    • wow, that “is” beautiful. Almost like the Taj.

      Don’t know about the prayers. One has to be in a mood for such things. And also, the volume’s got to be just right. Sometimes I find that Venkateswara Suprabhatham puts me in an almost nirvanic state, sometimes I switch it off in 5 minutes. More or less the same with Arabic prayers. A few days ago, the cabbie had the prayers on at full volume, kind of grated on my nerves. Today though, it put me at ease. Felt quite peaceful.
