"The Golden Light" : A Sonnet by Sri Aurobindo Full Text




The Golden Light



by Sri Aurobindo Ghosh

Thy golden Light came down into my brain

And the grey rooms of mind sun-touched became

A bright reply to Wisdom’s occult plane,

A calm illumination and a flame.


Thy golden Light came down into my throat,

And all my speech is now a tune divine,

A paean-song of thee my single note;

My words are drunk with the Immortal’s wine.


Thy golden Light came down into my heart

Smiting my life with Thy eternity;

Now has it grown a temple where Thou art

And all its passions point towards only Thee.


Thy golden Light came down into my feet:
My earth is now thy playfield and thy seat.
