Ambition, my precious ambition, it is you who untiringly help me to transcend my capacities.

It is you who help me to transform my inordinate pride into sacred humility.

The seeker-heart in me, with your help, can sing the song of universal oneness.

Nobody else but you alone can make three most rare, sleepless efforts. By virtue of your sleepless efforts, you pull God the Compassion down, you push man the aspiration up and every day you inspire and energise my seeker-heart.

Ambition, my precious ambition, your victory-palace is my Lord's and my meeting place.

Sri Chinmoy, Aurora-Flora.First published by Agni Press in 1982.
