Watch this beautiful song by Swami Kriyananda from the Temple of Light at Ananda Village, recorded June 27th 2023 with singers and musicians from different Ananda Communities during our annual Spiritual Renewal Week.
Brave were the people who lived in these hills.
Brave, the great warriors who confronted the foe.
To defend what is holy, to defend what is true:
Our Lord on mankind did this duty bestow.
Glad all our children who people these hills.
Glad in the vision their hearts understand.
What became of past struggles?
Now the records are still,
But courage still lingers, giving strength to the land.
