It was around sunrise on a Sunday morning. I was ascending a hill along with my trekking buddies on the outskirts of Jaipur. Dark clouds covered the sky with no sign of a Sunrise. A thought flashed in my mind – no sunrise to capture today? With no trail to follow as we were trekking, I was negotiating with rocks & monsoon foliage. I was almost halfway on this hill when I saw this amazing flash of light on my right side.
The sunlight was beaming through the dark clouds; quite like Divine Light! It reminded me of a quote by Amy Leigh Mercree.
Let go of rejections and focus on self-reflection. For it is within that you will find the light you seek.
While I missed capturing sunrise on this day but it was more than compensated with this view. What do you think?
What is Divine Light?
Divine light is interpreted differently by people based on their beliefs and conviction. Probably a spiritual connection. Some people think that a divine force is trying to connect with us or sending us a message. I would like to mention here the word Prakāśa used by followers of Shaivism who associate it with the transcendental experience. In simple terms, the word Prakash means light. I think being able to experience such Divine light is the closest spiritual experience we all can have. Certainly, it’s not common. Probably a chance event!
