Journey into the light...

Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo yo nah Prachodayat

In all three worlds,
Body... Shakti... Mind

May that irresistable source of all light
Illuminate the soul of my heart
May I meditate upon that radiance,
and may it guide me on my journey home... the Divine Heart of all Light

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
