215. A Million Salutations at Thy Petaled Feet, O Lotus of Light
A million salutations at Thy petaled feet, O Lotus of Light! I pour out my heart’s love before Thee. I pour out my whole being. I offer all the fragrant musk of my soul at Thy feet of omnipresence.
O precious, Blessed One, pipe the song of Thy bliss in the dark bower of my heart. I am Thy very own! Ever shall I be Thy own! I will laugh at all dangers, for Thy protecting love fills the golden chalice of my constant remembrance of Thee.
I cast every earthly passion and pleasure into Thy sacrificial fire as an oblation of my devotion to Thee. In Thy blessed light I will illuminate all shadows, and expose as illusory my imaginary fears.
In Thy radiant light I will remain awake forever, entranced by Thy thrilling, omnipresent bliss‐smile through all eternity.
May Thy love shine forever on the sanctuary of my devotion, and may I be able to awaken Thy love in all hearts.
Oh, make my soul Thy temple! Make my heart Thine altar! And make my love Thy home!
