Faith # 8

I saw these two young girls lighting some oil lamps in Arunachaleswara temple in Tiruvannamalai. It is a custom to light oil lamps in temples as part of a prayer. What could be the wish of these young ladies? To get a good husband or to get a good job or to get this or that.

For me it appeared they pray for world peace. But is it achievable? As Martin Luther King .Jr observed our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

If only these girls were aware of this they would have prayed for peace.
