The Night Spirit


The spirit of the night spread out its mantle over the world and through its power of concentration created a vast sea of translucent darkness, which flowed like the lucid waters of an ocean of liberation.

 It called forth its sister ‘The Sleep’ and together they set forth to sooth the agonies of all the living creatures. It descended on creatures moving in mountains, cities and wilderness and guided them safely to their nightly abodes. It protected them from evil, sheltering them with hands of care and tenderness.

It toned down the harsh outlines of the objects and blended them with magical hues to paint a world of mystery and beauty, all in a supernal mode.

It gave a compassionate wisdom to beings, to control their frights from dreams and nightmares, showering them with breaths of peace and tranquillity. The further one went in pursuit of its habitation, the loftier became its dwellings. The deeper one felt, the firmer became one’s foundations.

Such were the wanderings of the Spirit of the Night.
