The Legacy Of Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati (I) - Poem by Vijaiya Ramkissoon
A living legend was he, born in February 1824,
Re-establishing Dharma, he emphasized Vedic law.
He fought unrighteousness with the Holy Vedas in hand,
The weapon of truth being his major command.
He battled inequality and eradicated social discrimination,
Uplifting the unfortunate who were treated with degradation.
By serving humanity, God’s servant he prove to be,
In each person, he never failed to recognize divinity.
By his knowledge and wisdom, not only did he talk the talk,
But by living within God’s laws, he also walked the walk.
Dispelling ignorance, he illuminated the word with light,
To uphold Vedic Dharma, did he continuously fight.
He breathed his last on October 30th 1883,
Leaving behind his footprints of a great legacy.
We celebrate his life on the auspicious occasion, Divali
As we strive to tread in the path of Swami Dayanand Saraswati.
