AS A CHILD WHO LEARNS TO WALK CAN WALK NOT LONG

“As a child who learns to walk can walk not long,

Replace the titan will for ever to climb,

On the heart’s altar dim the sacred fire.

An old pull of subconscious cords renews;

It draws the unwilling spirt from hieghts,

Or a dull gravitaion drags us down

To the blind driven inertia of our base.

This too the supreme Diplomate can use,


He makes our fall a means for greater rise.


He comes unseen into our darkness, does his work,

A subtle and all-knowing guest and guide,

Till they too need and will to change.

All here must learn to obey a higher law”

-SAVITRI
