An Ode To Swami Vivekananda

(On His 150th Birth Anniversary)

You have been at the heart of world conscience
Over the decades of religious disharmony
Oh Vivekananda Swami -
Guiding light of mankind over years in the making
Pursuant to your lead for a global harmony
In the first Parliament of Religions in Chicago
Little over a century and a decade ago
Oh, Swami
You pioneered Vedanta in the West in embodied form
Setting up a new paradigm for the world to learn
On the oneness of all religions for a global harmony
Oh, beloved Swami
Your grand vision is now visible in a tangible form
In spite of all the conservative commotion
Toward fulfilling your pet mission,
On the Unity of all Religion for a global harmony
Oh Vivekananda Swami!
