With fragrant flowers, wood and earth,
my awareness is fixed on the presence of the Divine in all things.

“Split a piece of wood, and you discover my essence,” teaches the Lord of my soul.
As these flowers wilt,
and wood decay,
so too this body and its mind,
All that remains,
my wisdom and spiritual essence.   


This prayer is used when we place items of flowers, wood and earth on our altars.
