216. A Million Salutations at Thy Petaled Feet, O Lotus of Light

A million salutations at Thy petaled feet, O Lotus of Light! I pour my heart at Thy feet. I pour all my soul at Thy feet. I pour all the fragrant musk of my love at Thy feet of omnipresence.

O precious, Blessed One, ever pipe the song of Thy bliss in the dark bower of my heart. I am all Thine own! I shall be Thine forever! I will laugh at all dangers, for always I hold Thy protecting love in the golden chalice of my constant remembrance of Thee.

I throw all my passions and earthly pleasures on Thy sacrificial fire, as the offerings and oblations of my devotion to Thee. In Thy blessed light I shall burn all shadows and fears of my imagination. In Thy blessed light I shall remain awake forever, watching Thy precious, omnipresent face with ever vigilant eyes, through all the aeons of eternity.

May Thy love shine forever on the shrine of my devotion, and may I be able to awaken Thy love in all hearts.

O! Make my soul Thy temple! Make my heart Thine altar! Make my love Thy home!
