May knowledge remove ignorance and may we realize thatknowledge is a lasting inner wealth by which all outer achievements can be accomplished.By lighting the chalice may we bow down to knowledge as the greatest of all forms of wealth.Knowledge backs our actions, whether good or bad. We therefore light this chalice as awitness to our thoughts and actions. The flame of the chalice burns upwards; similarly, weshould acquire such knowledge as to take us towards higher ideals. When lit by spiritualknowledge, the negative tendencies in a human being get slowly exhausted, and the egotoo finally perishes.Knowledge does not lessen when shared; on the contrary, it benefits both the giver and thereceiver.FRENCH:Dieu est le principe suprême de la connaissance. Que celle-ci ôte l’ignorance et puissions-nous comprendre qu’elle est une richesse intérieure durable grâce à laquelle nous pouvonsmieux accomplir nos projets. En allumant notre calice, puissions nous voir en elle cetteconnaissance comme la plus grande de toutes les richesses. Elle inspire nos actions, quecelles-ci s’avèrent bonnes ou mauvaises.C’est pourquoi nous avons allumé ce calice comme témoin de nos pensées et de nosactions. Voyez comment sa flamme brûle vers le haut comme pour nous inspirer à acquérirdes connaissances qui nous poussent vers des idéaux plus élevés.
