THE DAWN OF A NEW LIFE
All my sorrow is over,
My heart is now brimming up with joy;
Peace has now entered my soul.
All doubts, fears and delusion have vanished.
I was suddenly lifted out of myself.
There was dawn of a new life.
I experienced the inner world of Reality.
The Unseen filled my soul and heart.
I entered the vast, luminous Silence.
I was bathed in a flood of effulgence ineffable.
I came on the hidden spring of all life.
I am the Light that illumines the entire universe.
~ Sri Swami Sivananda
