The truly blessed are those who, flinging freedom aside, have clung to Thy Lotus-feet;


In pain is their gain;


In defeat is their joy;


In sorrow is their dawn of awaken­ing;


In suffering is their victory!


And to those that smite them, they give their smiles!


And to those that persecute them they send out the benedictions of their love-filled hearts!


They are the truly free! They have broken all fetters-Aye, even the fetter of freedom!
