In the Spirit

Brahmachari Prashad
September 18, 2022

Beautiful song by Swami Kriyananda, inspired by St. John the Apostle on the island of Patmos. Performed by Prashad and Mukti in the Temple of Light at Ananda Village, September 18th 2022.


I was caught up in ecstasy: ’

Twas a day sanctified by God.

There He showed me the truths of heaven,

Truths which all, seeking Him, should know:


How the soul, made to live in freedom,

Can reclaim its eternal right;

How the night, born of our delusions,

Can be fired, blazing with His light.



(Written by the composer for use in performances, unless otherwise noted.)

“I, John, on the isle that is call Patmos,

Was in the spirit on the Lord’s day,

And heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet – saying, I am Alpha and omega,

The first and the last. Thus may all men know Him, The Fountain of Salvation!
