My sacrificeI nothing want but my all to give.
My sacrifice ends not in vain.
A sweet return I know shall come
When I am above all loss and gain.
All pure souls into one must fuse.
True Love shall only then be known.
The Golden Gate that hides
The One reveals His wealth, His own.
Undying desires of man
His high and Golden Goal do vend.
Thus does he fail to dwell
In boundless Immortality, his End.
Sri Chinmoy, My first friendship with the muse, Agni Press, 1973
