Vignana Bhairava Tantra - 52

The fire of time

Kaalagnina Kaalapadaad Uthithena Swakam Karam
Plushtam Vichintayedante Shantabhasam Thada Bhaveth

Everything in this universe is bound by time. Time hence is compared to fire. Fire is created. It burns a while and dies out. While contemplating that the body has been burnt and destroyed by this fire of time, one realises the supreme presence that is beyond time. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
