I look behind and after
And find that all is right,
In my deepest sorrows
There is a soul of light.
(Translated by the Swami on June 12, 1898)
One circle more the spiral path of life ascends,
And Time’s restless shuttle–running back and fro
Through maze of warp and woof– Spins out a stronger piece.
Hand in hand they stand–and try
To fathom depths whence springs eternal love,
Each in other’s eyes,
– Swami Vivekananda
