Thought

Great leader’s lion magnitude

Revival with weapons three

Renunciation, austerity, fortitude,

Enough to make the enemies flee


Last glorious one of heroes bold

Sheds own blood and of his own

For cause of justice history told

Of lionheart died in truth alone


You may see a thousand defects

But folk are gods to worship here

Curse not but offer high respects

For gods are present to revere


Even if in evil bite and scratch

And bury not revenge’s plans

Only loving words despatch

Despite the wish of partisans


Oppression and injustice fight

Care not for selfish peace ill gained

But current send with all your might

Great love where evil is arraigned


(derived Swami Vivekananda’s words in Diary of a disciple, of Sharatchandra Chakravarty)


Prayer

O Lord grant me courage to stand up for what is right without fear or favour for truth alone triumphs. Thy energy overwhelms all things. I offer to Thee body and mind as sword and shield. Let truth be always in thought word and deeds. Grant me renunciation, austerity and fortitude for the common good.
