"Yo devo’ gnau yo’ psu yo visvam bhuvanam avivesa
  Ya osadhisu yo vanaspatisu tasmai devaya namo namah."


We offer our supreme salutations to this divine Being who is in fire, in water, in the plants, in the trees, and who has entered and pervaded the whole universe.


Fire is aspiration. Water is consciousness. A plant is a climbing hope. A tree is an assuring confidence. The divine Being is the concealed Breath and revealed Life of the universe.
