Watch and listen to this beautiful song by Swami Kriyananda, performed by members of the Ananda Joy Singers Choir, recorded during the 80th birthday celebration of Nayaswami Jyotish at the Crystal Hermitage at Ananda Village, August 5th 2023.
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.
