"Folding in the New Year"

What a nice trick Yami does with the pleated paper!

Love the music with this one. The words the lady are singing are in sanskrit:

Asato Maa sadgamaya,
Tamaso Maa, Jyothir Gamaya,
Mryuthyo Maa Amritam Gamaya,

Lead me from the unreal to the real,
Lead me from darkness to light,
Lead me from death to immortality.

Thanks for posting the translation!

I love this song too. It was written for the new Battlestar Galactica miniseries and appears at a time when there is a desperate need for hope in the face of impending mortality and despair; and finding beauty amidst the realization of how fragile and fleeting life is.

At least, that's how I saw it!
