Description

I found this beautiful poem in the window of my late mother's bedroom. It fills me with her sacred reverence for life and reminds me of her true spiritual nature. 

 

Author unknown. From the Sanskrit, “The Salutation of the Dawn.”—Masterpieces of Religious Verse, ed. James Dalton Morrison, p. 301 (1948). Attributed in some sources to Klidsa, Hindu dramatist and lyric poet of the fifth century, A.D.
