the Spirit of Mahatma Gandhi lives through every nonviolent action

“Compassion is like a bridge between friendship and mercy.” -Dr. Ravindra Kumar

So to not offend the body
And to not offend the mind
Giving call to isolation
And self-control I find
I am lost within the garden
Yet I do not disturb her leaves
Nor the blossoms of her virtue
As his mercy falls on me
I delight inside the coolness
Of compassion on my skin
Consuming all my senses
As I rise to drink it in
Then I bow in adoration
So overcome my spirit stills
Once again to hear the voice
I obey as my heart wills
And the whisper of his spirit
Has beckoned me to pray
That we in harmony
Will worship him this way
