A Sanskrit Prayer
Listen to the exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day,
For it is Life, the very Life of Life,
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence;
The Bliss of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And Tomorrow is only a Vision;
But Today, well lives, makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And Every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn.
