Prayer for Abhayam by G.V. Subbaramayya
« on: June 01, 2009, 01:07:19 PM »
On June 19, 1945, G.V. Subbaramayya wrote his 'Farewell
Prayer' in six Telugu stanzas.  This was titled Abhayam,
Rassurance and Refuge:

The courage that never quails under any distress,
The equal bearing of honour and shame,

The same benevolence towards all,
The gratitude for others' good deeds,

The sense of fullness that Thou art everything,
The eternal devotion to Thy lotus-feet,

The knowledge that every occurrence is Thy doing,
The wisdom that everything happens for the best,

The enquiry "To whom are all these thoughts", "To me"
"Who am I?"

The consequent subsidence of all thoughts
And flash of Reality as Self Realization,

"O Father Ramana, grant to Thy child!"
