Aurobindo in the 'Karmayogin' and the 'Dharma'1

A tremendous Will from the eagle-height descends
To hear in silence his inner august command.
The thunder-blaze of his volcano-pen awakes
The sleeping souls to free their Motherland.

Aurobindo, the leader-Peak of the dire revolt
With rising sparks of Ind is all a-shine.
In him they find their altar of sacrifice;
From his words and deeds they drink the ambrosial wine.

A freedom vast and absolute he wants.
And Mother Ind to the world shall show
The sun-lit road of unity sublime.
The truth immaculate all life must know.
