THE ORATION

One fire, One God, One world, One people;

ignorance transforms the one into many:

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

As fire burns we destroy delusion and bondage,

Leaving only the white ash of Liberation.

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

Let the fire destroy the drag of the senses

Pulling us hither ans thither in bondage.

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

In the Naked Fire the mind regenerated

Fit to attain the vision of Reality.

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

As burning releases the fire from fuel

May mankind be released from bondage

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

Let the fire burn all Karmas and their power

Releasing us to attain equipoise and liberation.

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

The flame in the fire is the symbol of Wisdom;

As Naked fire let the inner consciousness glow

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

Realisation of the Self is immortality

And the supreme attainment is spontaneous.

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

Thoughtless, the fire burns without intention;

In Samadhi we attain that state of Bliss.

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

Like as the Dhunee is the symbol of Shakti

The flame is the Lingam of Lord Shiva

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

As above, so below. Fuel transforms to ash;

All the worlds of the universe turn to dust

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

As fire is inherent in the fuel.

So the soul is inherent in the body

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

In the fires of Samsara, painfully burning;

May the grace of the absolute descend on us

Homage and salutations to the Naked Fire!

As fire takes the form of the fuel it consumes

The immortal soul takes the form of the body.

Homage and salutations to the Naked Fire!

As flame passes on to other pieces of wood

So the soul passes on from body to body

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

Drink thou the Nectar of Immortality;

Thou art the Naked Fire of Eternity

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

In the fire of frustration Wisdom is born,

From the womb of a jackal a tiger is born

from the fire of Wisdom disspassion is born

From all cast aside Liberation is born.

Then one has done all that which needs be done,

As Naked Fire then shine as mortals all

Homage and Salutations to the Naked Fire!

OM NAMAH SHIVAYA ! OM NAMAH SHIVAYA ! OM NAMAH SHIVAYA !

OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI !
