“Through the star in the blue, meet the Christ everywhere…” ~ Opal Flame chant video

This chant describes the devotee’s passage through the “door” of the spiritual eye, whose opalescent light appears inside the center of the forehead.  The yogi beholds at the center of the spiritual eye a brilliant white star surrounded by a ring of blue light.  Those who by devotion and pranayama (life-force control) pass through the starry door commune with the Christ Consciousness that permeates all creation.

Opal Flame

If thou wilt see opal flame, drive darkness ever more,
searing thy silence with the sword of pranayam… (repeat)

Through the star in opal eye, see the Christ everywhere
sleeping in every atom, in protons, electrons, (repeat)

Golden, misty aureole adorns the opal door;
through the star in the blue, meet the Christ everywhere (repeat)

Starry dove with wings of rays alights on forehead,
showing you the throne of Christ in the peace of every heart, (repeat)

Jesus Christ, Matthew 6:22

Make thine eyes a single flame to see the starry gate;
thy body will be light, illumning all space, (repeat)

By wise inspiration follow the starry eye,
to see the Christ born in thy soul anew… (repeat)

Starry dove with wings of flame, baptize me in thy light,
spreading my soul with Christ in the bliss everywhere (repeat)

Shining opening in hall of matter, O star! I peep through thee
into the land of astral light that kindles life in everything… (repeat)

If thou wilt see opal flame, drive darkness evermore! (repeat)



When Master went into a deep period of samadhi, he often came out with a new chant, giving expression in words to what he had perceived…he used to repeat them over and over again until, as he said, they would become “spiritualized.” What he meant was that he chanted them repeatedly until he had realized through actual experience the spiritual perception behind every word that he put into those chants. He chanted them not with just his voice, but with his heart and mind and especially his soul. And when we chanted with him, if we really threw ourselves into the chanting, his spiritualized perceptions overflowed from his consciousness into our own, giving us a glimpse of the wondrous, blissful communion he was experiencing. Master’s words are so inspiring and so deep. Just tune in with them as you chant. As Master used to say, “Those who tune in more, receive more.” So when you chant, do so with feeling, and you will receive what he found when he chanted.
