He measures soon the strength of human souls
And sails for Pondicherry.
The Power divine has set its Will to make
The Mother free and merry.
"The fount of Power in me I now shall create
To unveil the freedom-sun
Upon aspiring India's ancient sky.
Who says we are undone?"...
His message divine is crowned with triumph august.
His 'birthday-gift' from Above
Awakes the rapture-light upon the soil
Of Ind; and him to love
Is to own the golden nectar-boon of the All.
For the earth entire his transformation's call!
