My salutation to the soul of AustraliaMy aspiring heart is saluting you.
My illumining soul is loving you.
In you I see the perfect combination of the body’s service and the vital’s dynamism.
Your soul is at once the embodiment of the ancient sun and the revelation of tomorrow’s dawn.
Your body’s consciousness is the expansion of vastness.
Your heart’s delight is the perfection of illumination.
Slowly and steadily your body walks.
Confidently and dynamically your vital marches.
Pointedly and unerringly your mind runs.
Devotedly and unconditionally your heart dives.
Eternally and supremely your soul flies.
Your life’s greatness-dream is humanity’s transcendental pride.
Your life’s goodness-reality is humanity’s universal treasure.
