Swami_Vivekananda_JaipurThe world is a forest of sorrows, and we wander through it, lost to desire and clinging to hopeless things. Who will blaze our path for us? Who will lead us out?

We will follow the gerua robes, the tonsured heads, the chanting of your holy names. Their feet crush the thorns before us, the light of their hearts exorcises the shadows.

Lord, I am indebted to you for all of those women and men who renounce the worldly life for the sake of showing the rest of us the way to your holy feet.

May they be steadfast and strong in mind. May their resolve never fail. May they have purest devotion to the Great Ideal. May their blessedness grace the world forever.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
