Swami Vivekananda

(12 January 1863 - 4 July 1902 / Calcutta / India)

A Benediction - Poem by Swami Vivekananda

The mother's heart, the hero's will,
The sweetness of the southern breeze,
The sacred charm and strength that dwell
On Aryan altars, flaming, free;
All these be yours, and many more
No ancient soul could dream before -
Be thou to India's future son
The mistress, servant, friend in one.
