The Gita for discovering your inner light
This session is dedicated to helping you re-discover your inner light.
This verse from chapter 15 of the Bhagavad Gita represents a light that exists within us that can never be extinguished. As you become familiar with these ancient Sanskrit sounds, imagine that within your heart, is a tiny flame. Yet, as tiny as this little light may seem, it has the power to dispel darkness.
Look around you, if the night seems long, and the darkness of uncertainly prevails, then close your eyes and begin the search for that one light that can never be blown out by life’s challenges and circumstances.
English translation of chapter 15, verse 12: 'That light which residing in the sun, illumines the whole world, that which is in the moon and in the fire—know that light to be Mine'.

After singing this verse enjoy a short visualisation and meditation on inner light. This is your opportunity to re-connect to a source of silent flickering light that glows inside us, waiting to be acknowledged and honoured.
English affirmation: ‘I am a Light that can never be extinguished. I am a light that forever glows.’
Complete this session with the three sounds of OM, followed by the three most potent words of the Gita: Om Tat Sat which denotes our aspiration to uphold the truth (sat) and the divinity within each of us.
