On the occasion of her birthday it is Gurumayi’s wish that we offer a prayer and benediction for peace in this world.
Gurumayi has taught us about the three forms of light: the sun, the moon, and fire. Through fire, the earth connects to the firmament.
Gurumayi has also taught us how to approach the fire with reverence and devotion. When we worship fire, we offer our prayers to all three forms of light. We honor the light of the universe, the light of the heart. And as the smoke of the fire carries our prayers to the heavens, our prayers are heard.
The prayer and benediction that Gurumayi has chosen for us to offer are from the Vedas and Upanishads.
Gurumayi says, “The light of grace follows the light of peace. The light of peace follows the light of grace.”
