August 12, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer

Thought

Embers glowing red and bright

Warm against cold shadow night

Occasional burst of spark and spit

As coals stirred and new tongue lit


Fuelled flames with mantras fed

Prayers to deities great fire led

Blazing hungry leaping spears

Crackling shots of licking cheers


How dry kindling stick and wood

With friction sparks and breath could

Make nurtured flames with fuel grow

From smoke till infant flame will show?


Dry wood ignites and butter melt

Fire of love’s yearning ignition felt

Seen here with eyes, then centrally

Mind’s pleasant leap - God’s Energy


Prayer

“O Lord of fire preserve us by burning off our sins. Protect us by providing us with the means for attaining full knowledge. O Resplendent One! We worship thee with sincere yearning. Please burn up our obstacles and make our worship fruitful.” (Mahanarayana Upanishad 1. 54)
