Cherish These

December 26, 2021

Watch this beautiful song by Swami Kriyananda, recorded in the Temple of Light at Ananda Village, December 26th 2021.


Is there anywhere on earth,

Perfect freedom, sorrow’s dearth,

Selfless friendship, blameless birth?

Cherish these, naught else has worth.


Introduction (Written by the composer for use in performances)

“Fame, wealth, position – these are but for a time.

All that is of lasting worth

Exists not in the world around us, but in our own souls.
