  • Translation:

    Let me wave lights to the true guru.
    Hail divine love, pure, indestructible, dwelling within us in the form of knowledge,
    illuminating every step like the rays of the sun. Let me wave lights to the true guru.
    This love has led us out of darkness; this love has shown us the immortal flame.
    Listen, for so long we were (fools) going around from door to door just picking up dust.
    Let me wave lights to the true guru.
    Give us your grace, to help us cross over the world. Show us the true path, dispel wrong ideas.
    Hail the one who has revealed the eternal light and whose existence is a divine play.
    Let me wave lights to the true guru. Om. The Guru is consciousness, eternal, peaceful, beyond space, stainless.
    He is beyond the divine music residing in the subtle abode of the inner Self.
    I bow to that Guru.
