Fire Of Truth – Part 2

Disciple

Compassionate Sire, what nature is this fire

Teach me how to kindle it.

Master

It is flame, without smoke;

It burns without fuel, save what is not visible to the eyes.

It burns in the mouth of the wise.

It dwells in heart of love.

It is the perpetual altar fire where saints pour their oblation of worship.

It is eternal life.

It dwells in thee, though thou knowest it not, dormant, hidden at thy inmost recess.

When thy uncovered heart will catch the spark that cometh out from the mouth that speaketh the Fire of Truth,

Then will be lighted in thee this smokeless, eternal Flame.

~ Swami Paramananda
