Appreciation of Lord Mahavir

Mahavira, Mahavira, Mahavira!  

In prayerful supplication I bow my head to You.  

Do accept my soulful obeisance.  

O Pilgrim of the Highest ever wandering free,  

Your Heart is a ceaseless Compassion-Fountain.  

O Vardhamana, O Vardhamana, O Vardhamana!  

By virtue of sleepless and breathless askesis  

You made the discovery supreme:  

Each bondage-life can and shall attain  

Liberation of the Beyond.
