Human beings are born attached to desire. To escape the suffering caused by desire, we must extinguish it through the realization of oneself. Yellow flames, representing human souls, burn on top of a floating object, which serves as a vehicle for the souls to reduce the desire. Smoke indicates this extinguishing process.
