(Madikeri)

To My Guru Swami Vivekananda..


World at this wandering monk wondered,
simply the fearless empty hands unarmed;
vedanta knowledge of Viveka and Ananda,
Salute to you daring, dear Vivekananda!

Sun rise in east has to spread light to west,
Eastern wisdom unknown to loving longing heart,
brought out the best, mighty bright star live short,
thy life was short, but enough to make world bright!

Bearing the torch of Guru Ramakrishna in heart,
inspiring all with glowing truth before you depart;
never worried of future nor painful past in mind,
light of yoga science, pushing darkness behind!

Inspired by thy works, surpassing human boundaries,
social and spiritual miracle that had to happen,
so many lives flawlessly forged in thy foundries,
Thy life is worth million times to study and mention!

We love you, o fearless one, representing soul of Dharma,
Thy love made us fearless, clearing clouds of ignorance,
purity of thoughts inspire us, divinity, and secret of Karma,
always keep our heart free of aviveka, Dearest Swami Vivekanada

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
