Flame Waves from the Upanishad-Sea, Part II

UPA 25-34. Fordham University, Bronx, NY, 28 February 1972


"Agne naya supatha, raye asman;
  Visvani, deva, vayunani vidvan;
  Yuyodhyasmaj juharanam eno
  Bhuyistham te nama-uktim vidhema."


O Agni, O Fire God, lead us along the right path so that we can enjoy the fruits of our divine actions. You know, O God, all our deeds. O God, take away from us all our unaspiring and binding sins and destroy them. To You we offer our teeming, soulful salutations and prayers.


Heart’s aspiration is the right path. God’s Compassion is the genuine guidance. The fruits of our divine actions are Peace, Light, and Bliss. Sin is the smile of self-limiting bondage. In our prayers and salutations abides God the illumining Saviour.
