God's Most Loving Diya
Lighting a Diya before the Gods and Goddesses,
Is a Religious practice of everyday;
Obligatory for us to do so every Dusk,
To dispel the darkness with its inundating light.
Deep is an amazing Lamp with oil or ghee,
With a cotton wick as its necessity.
Using it to do 'Aarti' before the Lord Supreme,
Is the over flooding of happiness extreme.
Deepak,Deevam and Divaa are one and the same ,
That enlightens a Temple by its own grace.
Deepam symbolises Knowledge,
That obliterates our Hearts' darkness of ignorance.
Millions of Divaas are lighted,
For the Deepawali to be pompously celebrated.
It is the festival of lights,
When we welcome Goddess Lakshmi in all Her glory.
Diyas are significant,
As lighting a Deep before Lord Shiva,
Is considered to be very auspicious.
We bow down in front of an illuminated Deepak,
Seeking God's benediction to enlighten our lives.
Dispel darkness with your positive aura,
And remove all pessimistic thoughts of life.
Give us 'Spiritual Awakening',
With the light emanating perpetually from your Flame,
As symbolically, you are God's Divine Grace.
