BACK TO TOP
You have noticed that everything an Indian
does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works
in circles, and everything tries to be round..... The Sky is round, and I have
heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind,
in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is
the same religion as ours....

back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to
childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.
