Life of Swami Venkatesananda

13. The Ideal Student

The Divine Life Trust Society

Om Namah Shivaya

Om Namah Venkatesaya

Sri V. Ganesh.

Ever with devotion replete,

Serving the Master's feet,

Is of course without question

Swami Venkatesa - in Siva's mission.

Every chance he would snatch,

Every method he would hatch,

To broadcast the Divine message,

Of Siva, the Himalayan Sage.

A wonderful worker-good guide,

At Guru's Feet, mentally abide;

Swami Venkatesa enjoys Bliss

In Master's universal service.

An orator so inspiring,

A writer so untiring,

A staunch, steady student

Of Siva - the great mendicant.

May Swami Venkatesa live long

To relay Siva's sweet song

Of Truth, love and meditation,

And the blissful God-realisation.
