Dear friends, here is a poem by Sri Chinmoy, composed on Oct. 15, 1998:
15 October 1998
Before lifting 220 lbs
with each arm 5 times
"My Supreme, my Supreme, my Supreme,
Many, many difficulties I have
In every aspect of my life.
That does not mean
That I shall doubt You
Or I shall doubt myself.
No, I shall just take shelter
Under Your Protection-Canopy,
And with the help
Of Your Compassion-flooded Eye,
I shall conquer all my difficulties
Within and without.
My Supreme, my Supreme, my Supreme!"
Excerpt from My Morning Soul-Body Prayers, Part 1 by Sri Chinmoy
