trees

 

Like the Tree I shall bow down.
Like the mountain I shall forgive and keep my head high.
Like the mother I shall always remain awake.
Like the heart I shall always worship.

– Sri Chinmoy (1)

We must be aware of
The nature of trees:
Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice-
From the very foot
To the highest height.

Sri Chinmoy (2)
