Divine Lights

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 half way 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 belief 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 Shavisim 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 closest spiritual experience we all can have. Certainly, it’s not common. Probably a chance event!

  1. For Christians the Bible verse comes to mind: I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Thank you for this amazing shot you captured when the light was breaking through the dark clouds, Arv!

  2. I love it when the sun breaks through the clouds like that. I’ve got one or two photographs where that really happens but the light wasn’t golden as in your photograph. More a case of a grey sky with some murky white light breaking through. Still spectacular but not as exciting.

    1. I think natural scenes like these are quite unique and each of these is spectacular and incomparable. We might have our own preferences but it’s great that nature creates such beautiful scenery for us to enjoy. Will love to see your captures Mike. I love your photos. 🙂


  3. I loved this quote and the gorgeous pics of the divine lights. Self-reflection is the key to overcome the feelings associated with rejection. It’s amazing how we tend to get signs and signals from nature…sending us just the message we need to hear. Nice blog this, good luck to you.
