Lead Me

(Om Asatoma)

Asatoma Sat Gamaya 
Tamasoma Jyotir Gamaya 
Mrityorma Anritam Gamaya 

Lead me from the unreal to the Real
Lead me from the darkness to the Light 
Lead me from the temporary to the Eternal 

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

Unreal = untruth; only relatively real; that which is merely manifest out of something else, such as the pot manifesting out of the clay; the aspects of ourselves that are really false identities appearing to be who we are.
Real = truth; that unchanging reality, like the clay, out of which everything else manifests; the true Self, the core of our being.

Darkness = the darkness of ignorance, of not seeing either the world or ourselves clearly; stemming from the process of ignoring, which is inherent in ignorance.
Light = the light of knowledge, of seeing clearly the true spiritual nature of things and ourselves. 

Temporary = that which is mortal, subject to death, decay, and decomposition; our surface identities.
Eternal = that which is not subject to death, decay, or decomposition; the immortal core of our being.
