Sacred Fire

Burning our chametz - left-over wheat and grain produce - on the morning before the Pesach holiday this evening. Note remains of the Succot lulav [palm stem] used to start the fire,forming a link between the two festivals. The burning is a physical sign of an inner process,letting go of our harmful desires and habitual attachments,rather like the anagama. Happy [and kosher] Pesach!
