* SUPREME SOUL IN A GOLDEN FLAME *
I meditate on Lord Naaraayana,
The Supreme Soul of the universe,
Who is in the form of the universe,
With myriad heads and myriad eyes!
To Naaraayana, the effulgent Cosmic Person,
The producer of happiness to all the creatures,
The destroyer of sins, the Omni present and
Omni formed God, the Protector of all, and
The supreme goal of the sages,
Ever be my salutations!
Salutations to Lord Naaraayana, the undecaying
Supremely auspicious soul and the supreme reality
Of the universe, who is in the form of supreme light
And great knowledge with pure bliss and divine love!
He is the infinite self, known as the Brahman,
The witness of all actions, the most excellent meditator
And the meditation; what so ever there is in the world
Known through perception or known through report;
All that is pervaded by Naaraayana within and without-
On that imperishable Supreme Soul, I meditate!
One should meditate on the limitless Supreme Soul
Dwells in a sea of consciousness in ones own heart
As great light; the place for meditation is the ether
In our hearts, thats comparable to an inverted lotus bud
Where there is a narrow space called the Su-shumna-
That is the abode of un-decaying Omni faced great fire
With flames on all sides, enjoying the food presented;
The rays of which spread scattering themselves all over
Which warms a person's body from the inside to the crown
In the centre of that fire which permeates the whole body
Abides an up-leaping tongue of fire in color of shining gold
Which is dazzling like the flash of lightening that appears
In the middle of a rain bearing cloud, which is as slender
As the awn of a paddy grain and it is the subtlest flame.
The supreme soul dwells in the middle of that flame!
He is the Creator, the Lord of universe, the one Omiscient
He is Siva, Vishnu, Indra, Aditya, and the Eternal Brahman.
He is the material and the efficient cause of the universe
And the Supreme self-luminous pure consciousness!
He, the absolute reality manifests as androgynous person
In the form of Uma-Maheshwar, who has uncommon eyes.
Salutations to Lord Naaraayana,
The Supreme Soul of the universe!
May Lord protect us both together!
May He nourish us both together!
May we both work together
With great energy!
May we not hate each other!
May peace-physical, mental and
Spiritual be on us forever!
