Divali Lights


O Light, my illumining Light,

You elevate my Spirit, into the plenitude of Love.

Aye! I see You, dancing in the mulberry trees;

Whispering in the breath-taking magic of the dawn.

Flooding my core with Your carousel of splendour,

Your candela of brilliance awakens my flame,

Kissing the crest of the rainbow,

In peerless symmetry.

O Light, my illumining Light,

I am bewildered by Your Grandeur.

Embracing my soul with Thy wondrous lustre,

You untangle my cobwebs of millennia,

Only to overpower my soul,

With a million rays of perennial Joy.

O Light, my illumining Light, Come!

Wisdom-quote from The Master

" ...When I say Light, I am speaking about illumination. This illumination will first take place in the realm of the God-manifesting soul. Next it will take place in the aspiring heart, then in the searching mind, then in the dynamic vital and, finally, in the wakeful body...

Light embraces humanity with all its imperfections and tries to illumine human ignorance so the human life can be elevated into the divine life..." -Sri Chinmoy


"O Light, my beautiful Light,

Entering the dimensions of the soul,

You preen my Heart of ignorance,

Cascading a torrential downpour of infinite Bliss." -Manatita

Sweet elevating Light is all around us
