June – Faith and Courage

Fear not, my heart, Even the darkest night must end at dawn! Clouds and mist may come and go But they cannot rob sun’s radiant glow. Look up, mine eyes, keep steady watch, For never must ye lose your guiding star. Hold fast! Hold fast! Faith and courage are His tender blessings; He will not hold these from thee when He sees thy yearning, struggling soul. Rest will come when thy toil is done.

O descendant of Bharata, the faith of each is according to his inherent nature. The man consists of his faith; he is verily what his faith is. Fearlessness, vigor, forgiveness, fortitude, purity, absence of hatred and fear, these, O descendant of Bharata, belong to one born with Divine qualities.
