I. The Prelude
Oh we are the Sun
Oh we are the Moon
Oh we are the Stars
All is ours
Oh walk with me and I'll walk with You
And all of us will get thru
I will sing with You
I will walk in my dreams with You
OH DIVINE, DIVINE, DIVINE ONE...

Chant-Prayers to All Thru Nazirmoreh (1970-1981)
We pray this offering finds a place in your heart.
Upon entering the living space of Nahziryah Monastic Community many, many years ago, one was greeted with such mystical lyrics as the one above - playing softly within a background of incense, pillows and eastern rugs. These recordings, of an ancient season, had been spontaneously sung into being by Reverend Nazirmoreh (All Blessings and Respect Due) - (they were recorded without the Reverend (ABRD) being aware at the time of the recording, in the students' efforts not to disturb the Reverend's (ABRD) flow). These Chant-Prayers were blended with sitar and other string and wind instruments, rising and ebbing to the pulse of a solitary drum.
Through the sojourns of the Community over the decades hence, experiences presented themselves claiming all but a few of these particular recordings. However, one of Reverend Nazirmoreh's (A.B.R.D.) students had been given the responsibility of inscribing them on the medium of paper, early on. These testaments have since been titled Chant-Prayers To All Thru Nazirmoreh (1970-1981). We hold them dearly, as they are of a rare, illuminating air.
Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) walks an oral tradition. Few precious words have followed ink to paper. To preserve more of the teachings along this latter line of communication, to be of service to those so attuned though not within ear's reach of Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.), permission has been granted in recent years by Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) to record on tape some of the innumerable lessons Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) has given to those in search. And in recent times, Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) has given instructions to begin the Nahziryah Monastic Community's "The Book of" series, to which this is one.
The teachings presented in this book, The Book of The Words of Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.), have been gathered from 3 sources - the rare taped recordings of Reverend Nazirmoreh's (A.B.R.D.) talks; the written declaration of "The Nazir, The Community" from The Book of the Order (another in the series) - a landmark writing dictated by Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.); and the resplendent Chant-Prayers To All Thru Nazirmoreh (1970-1981). All excerpts have been transcribed verbatim - exactly as Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) spoke/sung them - to preserve the natural flavor of Truth. The stream of consciousness found flowing through the quotations taken from the above 3 sources (recorded, dictated, and sung compositions of Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) have poured into the pages of this laconic volume, blending one with another, expressing the Oneness of their Source.
