Transliteration

Onii so jaha. Jahi vizdhik ruzam. Jahi uzzulich anzaadhabit vashtha. Qiraashii wa jahayi. Sahaathiiho aahathanii vannat isathanii. Sish isthaha, vannat heshyaaha uuthigii gifha. Isthaha jahi chem, unaaraha so biin nat. Atmaarii ne hissait.

Translation

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing! Only I will remain.
