A Deepavali offering

A birth at Thy Lotus Feet,

Mother, grant Thy child a birth at Thy Lotus Feet,
To fearlessly live in Thy gracious spiritual light,
Forsaking the sensual pleasures, living in Thy compassion
Embellished with the jewels of discrimination and dispassion

Mother, grant Thy child a birth at Thy Lotus Feet,
To joyously live in Thy gracious spiritual light,
Serving all effortlessly, sharing Thy selfless love,
Meditating silently like the bees resting in a hive.

Mother, grant Thy child a birth at Thy Lotus Feet,
To splendidly live in Thy gracious spiritual light,
Singing Thy immaculate glory with exact cadence,
With the best of musical lyrics sang in reverence.

Mother, grant Thy child a birth at Thy Lotus Feet,
To ecstatically live in Thy gracious spiritual light,
With knowledge culminated in supreme devotion,
Knowing that I’m Thy Universal Self, named “Om”

Om Tat Sat Om

Offering the poem at AMMA’s Lotus Feet
on the most auspicious Deepavali day.

Wishing all AMMA’s children a very happy Deepavali.
