In the service of light

Fireflies,
Like little lamps
Busily flying around,
Glowing in their discharge,
To bring light to the night.

No combustion from friction
Or, heat of pressure,
Just a phosphorescent giving off,
Delightful in flight
In the service of ‘light’!

An illuminating display
Of luminous wisdom,
‘Be ye lamps unto yourselves’
Enlightening life
And contributing light!

Artist's Description

“Therefore, be ye lamps unto yourselves, be a refuge unto yourselves, take yourself no external refuge. Hold fast to Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the Truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourselves. And those, who shall be a lamp unto themselves, shall betake themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, they shall reach the topmost height.” ~The Buddha
