Welcome to the realm of Light Meditation, a practice that intricately weaves the power of light into the fabric of inner peace and spiritual awakening. In Light Meditation, we embark on a transformative journey guided by radiant energy towards mindfulness and self-discovery. Delving into this radiant world, light illuminates the path to serenity and self-growth, inviting exploration and awakening.
(Buddhist value: The children learn about the importance of offering lights to the Buddha and its significance in the Buddhist context)
Imagine that you are a lotus candle. Someone walks toward you and lights your wick. You are now giving out a small glow of orange light. Slowly, your whole body becomes an orange colour. Feel yourself giving out warm orange light. Some one lifts you up and places you on the shrine table. Your warm orange light is like the brightness of wisdom.
You are now shining brilliantly, radiating as brightly as you possibly can, in order to dispel the profound darkness of ignorance. Moreover, your light serves as a powerful symbol of the Buddha’s teachings. His teachings help and guide us when we are in darkness. When we behave badly and get angry, it is as if we are in darkness. We need the light of the Buddha’s teaching to help us. Your light helps to remind people not to remain in darkness but to brighten themselves with the Buddha’s teaching.
You are the bright orange light. Feel yourself expanding, your light going out further and fur ther, until it shines through the whole temple, then further until it shines through the whole. country, and still further until it covers the whole world. You expand to a size that encompasses the entirety of the world, and your radiant light effortlessly pierces through the deepest darkness. Furthermore, your light emanates in all directions, illuminating every corner of existence. Your light of wisdom is touching all of space. Continue giving out orange light in every direction.
