Compos Mentis Manufacturers

Human life is defined by repetitive actions. We may think about everyday routines, like washing the dishes, or the hand movements of the craftsman, while, for instance, weaving a carpet, repetition is a crucial element of these, which creates the rhythm of life. According to Bagdat Sert, it depends on the level of one's consciousness during the action whether the action becomes an energy-draining burden, or an ever-ongoing, fulfilling meditation. This book, in this sense, is in-between a regular calendar and a prayer book.
