The 'burning water' (natural gas coming through a
water stream while brunring) inside the Fire Gompa represents the
union of the opposite elements. Some Hindus interpret them as a gift
from Brahma, who is said to
have made offering here by setting the water afire. Other Hindus at
the site mentioned they belief it's a manifestation of Brahma. Others
mentioned that it is Agni, the fire-God or Jwala Mai, the goddess
Outwardly, it is the lord-protectors of the three kinds of beings.
The fire from water is All-Seeing One (Chenrézi);
The fire from earth is Gentle Splendor (Manjushri);
And the fire from stone is Lord of Secrets (Vajrapani).
Inwardly, the three poisonous obscuring emotions
Fire burn in the water of purified desire;
Fire burns in the earth of purified anger;
And fire burns in the stone of purified stupidity.
Secretly, this is the non-dual union of the male
and female deities:
Fire burns in the water of transcendent knowledge;
Fire burns in the earth of skilful means;
And fire burns stably within the stone of union.
