Wake up the note! the song that had its birth

Far off, where worldly taint could never reach;

In mountain caves and glades of forest deep,

Whose calm no sigh for lust or wealth or fame

Could ever dare to break; where rolled the stream

Of knowledge, truth, and bliss that follows both.

Sing high that note, sannyasin bold! Say,

“Om Tat Sat, Om!”


Say, “Peace to all! From me no danger be

To aught that lives. In those that dwell on high,

In those that lowly creep; I am the Self in all.

All life both here and there, do I renounce,

All heavens and earths and hells, all hopes and fears.”

Thus cut thy bonds, sannyasin bold! Say,

“Om Tat Sat, Om!”


Thus, day by day, till Karma’s powers, spent

Release the soul for ever. No more is birth,

Nor I, nor thou, nor God, nor man. The “I”

Has All become, the All is “I” and Bliss.

Know thou art That, sannyasin bold! Say,

“Om Tat Sat, Om!”
