Salutation to the Dawn

Find talks and articles

By Kālidāsa

Translated from the Sanskrit

Listen to the salutation to the dawn.
Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of our existence;
The bliss of growth, the splendour of beauty.
For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well spent makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day.
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
