Dedication

I most prayerfully dedicate Mother India: Infinity's Beauty-Eye, Immortality's Fragrance-Heart to Sri Aurobindo, Mother India’s beloved Patriot-Avatar-Son, on the occasion of his 125th Birth Anniversary and India’s 50th Independence Anniversary

1.

My Mother India’s soul
Is made of
God’s blossoming Smiles.

2.

My Mother India’s heart
Is made of
God’s streaming Tears.

3.

My Mother India’s life
Is made of
God’s mounting Visions.

4.

Long one hundred and ninety years ago,
My Mother India was helplessly
And hopelessly subjugated
To the mighty British yoke.

5.

On August 15th, 1947
The darkest bondage-night
Disappeared,
Only to be gloriously replaced
By the brightest freedom-light.

6.

Down the sweep of centuries
The Absolute Lord Supreme
Has blessed you, Mother,
With a few choice children
Of His own highest Divinity.

7.

Your son Rama
(Sri Ramachandra)
Embodied and revealed
The Message of shadowless Promise
And sleepless Sacrifice.

Your son Krishna

Embodied, revealed and manifested
The Message of Love-Delight within,
Love-Delight without
And Love-Delight all-where.

9.

Your son Siddhartha
(The Buddha)
Was the possessor of Eternity’s
Infinite Compassion-Ocean.

10.

Your son Chaitanya
(Sri Chaitanya)
Became the Beauty
Of God’s own Love
And the Fragrance
Of God’s own Forgiveness.

11.

Your son Ramakrishna (Sri Ramakrishna) Became the Illumination-Tower Of the synthesis of all world-religions.

12.

Your son Narendranath
(Swami Vivekananda)
Became the fastest
World-progress-acceleration-dynamo.

13.

Your son Aurobindo (Sri Aurobindo) Became the harbinger Of the Supermind-descent Into the heartbeat of humanity And the champion supreme In the cause of mankind’s Nature-transformation.
