Kind words for Vivekananda

O Swami Vivekananda!

Sri Ramakrishna’s life-breath,

Sri Ramakrishna’s supreme gift to mankind,

Sri Ramakrishna’s victory-song all-where!

The victory-world’s delight you were;

Lo, the cyclone-valour of the Absolute!

You awakened your slumbering India,

You awakened humanity’s sleep.

In you blossomed the Form Universal.

O hero-warrior sannyasin,

In the core of the creation,

Sleeplessly shall burn

The incense of your self-offering.

Sri Chinmoy
