Looking out the window I see the downpour
Washing clean the trees and the grass;
Even the dogs are elated to feel water
After the scorching heat of days.
The soothing white sheet unfolds
As the clouds are free of their burden.
Life all around me is joyous
Because of the chance to rejuvenate,
I decide to let go of all that holds me down..
And surrender to the cleansing rain.
Cleaning my body and mind
I turn inwards to touch myself
And find the temple has already been cleansed
By the living God,
Who resides in me, Who resides in you,
And Who is there
In the burning sun and in the drops of rain.
"Tvamaeva sarvam, ma ma daeva daeva"
