Derekh and Harmony, two followers of Mama Sid's, introduce Raina to the legend surrounding Mama Sid's conception.
While Mama Sid’s own mama
lay sleeping in her bed,
her husband sawing logs beside her,
like he always did...
Into her dream there burst a stranger
An elephant as white as the foaming sea
She tried to scream; no sound escaped her
The elephant dropped gently onto its knee
Then From its trunk it pulled out a flower
She swooned to feel its heat and its power
IT drew her close and they danced intimately!
Then all at once, the elephant,
It disappeared into her side!
Then came a knock upon the door
Right In the middle of the night...
