Fmak t’Sochya

Once again, singer and musician T’Prion has captured the essence of Surak’s teachings in contemplative song. Her latest composition focuses on The Thread of Respect of Surak’s Second Analects and The Silences.

The video takes the viewer through a day of Vulcan meditation, beginning before dawn and moving through various places of contemplation, ending once more in the peace of isolation and privacy. We hope you find the video satisfactory. Below are the lyrics in Modern Golic Vulcan and a translation into Federation Standard English.


Fmak t’Sochya

Goh svi’dorvai’es t’awak’es

Kup tal-tor etek sochya.

K’shom heh kohlan hizhuk

Kup lesh etek lestlar

Va’ashiv heh fadvun-tor.


Sarlah weh-pid-vok

Sanctuary of Peace

Only in the sanctity of privacy

Can we find peace.

With rest and quiet contemplation

We can shoulder our burdens

Again and move forward.


With the development

Of psychic skills comes

A higher level of responsibility.

Today the life of the Vulcan

Must be a sense

Of universal responsibility.

A responsibility governed

By a new code of privacy.

A code of silence.

There is too much noise

In the world today-

Noise of interference.

Unless there is great need,

A Vulcan must not intrude

Into such personal matters of another.


These are the Silences

Of which we must not speak.

Only this way

Shall we regain our privacy,

And with it peace.


The deepest goal

Of the Vulcan soul

To find the source of sanctity.

It can only be reached

Through discipline,

Respectful living,

And daily contemplation.

We must leave

Others the privacy

Of their minds and lives.

We must reach out

To others courteously

And accept their reaching

In the same way,

With careful hands.
