A PRAYER FOR FREEDOM



A PRAYER FOR FREEDOM

Be think thee how the world did wait,
And search for thee, through time and clime.

Some gave up home and love of friends,
And went in quest of thee self-banished,
O'er dreary oceans, through primeval forests
Each step a struggle for the life or death.

Then came the day when work bore fruit
And worship, love and sacrifice
Fulfilled, accepted and complete.

Then Thou, propitious, rose to shed
The light of freedom on mankind.

Move on. Oh Lord, in thy resistless path
Till thy high morn overspreads the world.

Till every land reflects thy light,
Till men and women, with uplifted head,
Behold their shackles broken, and
Know, in springing joy, their life renewed!


--Swami Vivekananda

The main theme of my life is to take the message of Sanatana Dharma to every home and pave the way for launching, in a big way, the man-making programme preached and envisaged by great seers like Swami Vivekananda. - Mananeeya Eknathji

. . . Are you Strong? Do you feel Strength? — for I know it is Truth alone that gives Strength. Strength is the medicine for the world's disease . . .
This is the great fact: "Strength is LIFE; Weakness is Death."
