Mantra of Aesthetics

Does anyone remember the discussion about favorite phonemes?   I
assembled my favorite sounds into a "mantra of aesthetics", to be used
meditatively in times of need.  E.g. when my Finnish chat colleagues
remind me of the abominable disaesthetics of their front diphthongs. ;-)

/o: Za"milla "jEndra "Ze:ni/

So far, it has been a purely phonetic phrase.  Since today, it also
means something.  When spelled

|O ze amille a jende razeni.|

it fits Obrenje syntax nicely.  I assigned meanings to the missing
words, ending up with

O    ze         amille      a    jende       razeni.
OPT  PER:1:ACC  comfort:3e  and  cleanse:3e  tranquility:i
"May tranquility comfort and cleanse me."

May this mantra be a light for you in dark places, when all other
lights go out.   =)
