Painting by Swami Nihsreyasanandaji


Guiding light of Shiva shine

Monk and leader role enshrine

In whose hand raised up to bless

Serenely held in storms and stress

Great souls who visit us are rare

For praise or blame they do not care

Raised at the lotus feet of Master

Urge and surge will increase faster

From great hardships to service acts

From man’s frame full Divine exacts

Through love as broad as heart can be

While mind acquaints with samadhi

To one whose glorious chapters write

The way to live and increase height

Like snow clad mountain tops inspire

To climb up more - then even higher


O Lord how can I ever express sufficient thanks for Thy infinite grace? Grant that I may emulate the very highest ideal lives and reflect at least a little of them myself. Grant me the courage of a lion, good humor of a player, the wisdom of the sages and compassion of the self-sacrificing.
