Tamso Ma Jyotirgamaya

Deepavali decorations
External manifestations
Tonnes of sweets and gifts
Rows of lamps
Flames of candles
Magnificent fireworks
Invitation to Goddess Lakshmi
To bring prosperity and wealth.

In this glare and glitter,
How many really realize
On the auspicious day
Far more significant is
The removal of inner darkness
And ignorance of mind...?

The lights of physical world
Are not even worth
A ray of inner light of self
That brings the knowledge of truth
And a dawn into a brighter light
Tamso Ma Jyotirgamaya.*


(* From the darkness of ignorance lead me to the light of knowledge)
