Love 3 - Light The Lamp Of Love - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
As i light my house with myriad lamps,
A resolution i must take
A heartfelt message to all around me from
A humble healer!
When i light my red lamp,
God! i pray that all my anger
Bottled up within me
May be dropped off one by one!
When i light my orange lamp,
God! i pray that the envious tendencies
Coiling within my mortal body
May be uncoiled and dispelled!
When i light my yellow lamp,
God! i pray that the desire to grow,
Does not lead me towards a greedy path but
May lead towards higher values and wisdom!
When i light my green lamp,
God! i pray that the knot of hatred
Embedded within me in the surreptitious mind
May melt down and transform into sublime love!
When i light my light blue lamp,
God! i pray that the impurities
Percolating around my throat and my speech
May change into sweet voice of music!
When i light my dark blue lamp,
God! i pray that my days on earth
Filled with philanthropic thoughts and ideas
May lead me to compassion for all my sisters and brothers!
When i light my violet lamp,
God! i pray that my whole being
Be enveloped with light of wisdom
And unconditional love for all beings!
