“pradeepa-jvaalaabhir divasa-kara-neeraajana-vidhih” 1

suvar-jyotih-sphaara-prasava-kara-samraaji puruShe

na rochetaiShaa kintv apara-puruShe’rchaa su-kalitaa

iyam svaatmany aavir vilasati mano-deepa-saraNih

“Offering aartee to the splendorous day-making sun with tiny deepaks” 1---

Is certainly not befitting towards the puruSha who is the Emperor giving birth to expansive lights of the heavens;

However, towards the lower puruSha (jiva), who frolics in our own very self, this worship offering is beautifully rendered

- this array of the deepaks of the minds.


1 Shankaracharya in Saundarya-lahari (Wave of Beauty Hymn).

" Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.
At the first gate, ask yourself, "Is it true?"
At the second ask, "Is it necessary?"
At the third gate ask "Is it kind?" "
