15. THE MOTHER OF WAR-GODS

(March Past)

"Quick march, quick now within
To change the fate of mortal life.
In you abides the Light
That pierces ignorant human strife.

A deathless birth divine
Shall bare your hidden Sun-bright heart.
Sole hope of the earth are you.
Ere long your mystic journey start!"

Sri Chinmoy, Flame Waves, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1955
