The Jain path to freedom

Guru Shree Chitra Bhanu

The Immortal Song

May the sacred stream of amity flow forever in my heart,

May the universe prosper, such is my cherished desire;

May my heart sing with ecstasy at the sight of the virtuous,

And may my life be an offering at their feet,

May my heart bleed at the sight of the wretched, the cruel, and the poor, And may tears of compassion flow from my eyes,

May I always be there to show the path to the pathless wanderers of life, Yet if they should not hearken to me, may I bide patiently;

May the spirit of goodwill enter into all our hearts,

May we all sing together the immortal song of brotherhood,

The immortal song of sisterhood,

The immortal song.

--SHREE CHITRABHANU
