“He came to help us to remember who we are. He came to help us to affirm who we are. He never let us talk about our weaknesses. He always said, ‘I am strong.’
“We must do that. There is a poem, a song that his guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri used to sing: ‘Satsanga’s boat is calling. Who will go? Who will go? If no one else will go, I will go.’”
Walk like a man, even though you walk alone.
Why court approval, once the road is known?
Let come who will, but if they all turn home,
The goal still awaits you: Go on alone!
Follow your dream though it lead to worlds unknown.
Life’s but a shadow once our dreams have flown.
What if men cry, “Your dream is not our own”?
Your soul knows the answer: Go on alone!
Give life your heart! Bless everything that’s grown;
Fear not the loving: all this world’s your own.
Make rich the soil, but once the seed is sown
Seek freedom, don’t linger: Go on alone!
