Serene light…



Serene light shining in the ground of my being,
draw me to yourself.
Draw me past the snares of the senses,
out of the mazes of the mind,
Free me from symbols, from words
that I may discover the signified:
the word unspoken in the darkness
that veils the ground of my being.

~ Byzantine Hymn (From The Wisdom Jesus by Cynthia Bourgeault)

Guru Stotram 10


“Shoshanam bhavsindhoshcha gyapanam saarsampadah
Guroh-padodakam samyak tasmai Shri Gurave Namah”

Even by the very sipping of the charanamruta (the water with which the feet of guru are washed), we get blessed by the eternal wealth (of liberating knowledge), and which dries up the endless ocean of seeking and the subsequent sorrows. My Salutations to the lotus-feet of that glorious Guru.
