The Movie
Test your Mana I.Q.!
Sing Along
Like Manna from Heaven?


The first scene (following the introduction to the concept of the Polynesian word mana) takes place in a Navajo hogan (round mud-covered house) in northern Arizona. A stargazer ceremony is performed by a traditional medicine man, who invokes the guardian spirits to help him diagnose and treat the illness of his neighbor with the help of quartz crystals and other power objects. In the dark he chants a long prayer, only a short portion of which is included in the movie. The translation of the entire chant is:

You will live.

From here to eternity.

This is the way it will be.

So it will be with beauty.
