The Flame of Truth

The Fire the warms us
As the sun outside
And the subtle warmth within

Are but One

Eternal
Without beginning
Without end
To search for neither
Beginning nor end

Is to light the lamp
Of wisdom within

Today is kartigai

Thought to myself
'Have to light lamps tomorrow'
As I went to bed last night
Then came these beautiful words
That gently stirred me from sleep
To a gentle awakening

I celebrated Karthigai too, by just being with the lamp within. Nothing even to light.
