Festival of Your light!

With sparks from The eternal flame

all the multiverses. that hide

within me,


When the sacred fire burns

it ignites

the love for You.

In those ochre flames,

my demons die ;

Annihilating all the desires.

Darkness cannot be

where the light of my soul is.

I thought I was a reflection of You,

when I saw the flickering flames in

the colorful clay lamps.

Yet, as I learn to surrender my ego

and merge with eternal flame,

I become You.

We were in each other all along.
