Dominion of the Dead
At sundown: “I thank God and the Saints for the sun’s light, may it never falter.”
Before a meal: “The Saints brought us this bread, may our gratitude never falter.”
When facing misfortune: “May the luck of the Saints be with us,” as one makes a diamond pattern, touching forehead, right shoulder, solar plexus and left shoulder.
At a deathbed: “For service to family, Dominion and the glory of God, I open the gates of the righteous. Go, oh ____, and step into the golden halls of the Syawar.”
