This prayer comes from the sacred pages of the ancestors from Dimakatso manuscripts (to be published by Madisebo University College Press and to be distributed on Amazon) and was revealed to Mocholoko and inspired by the spirits and the writings of the erudite African ancients who have gone before us as shown below. Badimo ke bao! Thokoza Makhosi!

The Prayer of the Ancestors
The majestic gods of the heavens, we venerate your presence at all times. We thank your perpetual merciful kindness even when we fail to acknowledge your merciful interventions. We remember your magnanimous and just spirit that refreshes a brave horse that gave us victory when the going was tough in the undercurrents of Matamong and she audaciously salvaged us from the insatiable mouth of death during our fragile childhood.
Like a bird with broken wings, we submit to you with utmost humility so that you can heal us; cleanse us; teach us to venerate you; strengthen our wings; sharpen our beak and give us Lewadika (The Sacred Compass) to rise above the perturbations of the terrestrial space with a clear mission to retake our inalienable role as the unbought and the unsold architects of our sacrosanct destiny as it was meant to be. In this way, we can vibrate as we were intended to vibrate in accordance with the vibration of the erudite ancestors who have gone before us.
The transcendental spirits of the ancients intervene on our behalf as the sacrosanct source of endless inspiration to recharge our African spiritual batteries so that we do not lose the authenticity of our identity in spirituality. Your forms, like polymorphism, are manifold and your attributes are majestic like the powerful and the graceful wings of the amphibious bird, the great Seagull that traverses the trecherous Arctic glaciers as well as the glaciers of the majestic mountain of Kilimanjaro unperturbed by the frigid space in loyalist fulfillment of your design purpose in the terrestrial space.
As the venerated Gods of Eternity; the Gods of Transcendence; the Gods of the Hidden Place and the Curators of the World of the Departed, we recount the fact that your merciful kindness is endless and sometimes underserved by us through our disconnectedness from the ways of the erudite ancestors.
We forever venerate our connection to you by cosmic genesis which gives us a solid platform to ground our feet so that we can teach the future generations about the majestic heritage that was bequeathed to us. Through the African ancients, you have given us the golden keys of access to the knowledge of the cosmos by genesis as opposed to others who have to use the instruments, like the outsiders, to gain access to the knowledge of the cosmos.
There is no higher knowledge than Tsebo Ya Letswele (Knowledge By Genesis) because of its anchoring in the authenticity of metaphysics of the heavens and the identity encoded in the chromosomes.
Badimo Ba Thari (Amathongo Wombeleko/The Sacred Gods of the Cosmos), you make the world shine like a polished diamond when we adhere to Ditaelo (Imiyalelo/The Organizing Principles) of Hoila (Ukuzila/Abstinence); Hohlweka (Ukuhlanzeka/Cleansing) and Hoboka (Ukuthakazela/Veneration). You drive the fiends (meya emebe/imiya emibi/evil spirits) away from the path of the disciple of the ancestors, so that Yena can retrace the exigent and the gutsy steps towards the erudite ancestors so that Yena can espouse, learn and adhere to Ditaelo of the heavens.
Those who have departed from the terrestrial space, shall rise up to see you! They shall breathe the fresh air of the cosmic space and look upon your glorious appearing when the Disk (Ledika/Indilinga/The Sun) rises from the horizon! Their hearts are at peace when they behold you and their wrongs of physicality are hereby expunged. The great Gods of Eternity and Infinity, you are forever cherished by us. Badimo ke bao! Thokoza Makhosi!
