East of Japan is broken up but the people are strong!!
The gigantic earthquake and tsunami made Japan seem so pitiable even desperately weak, not what I have known on my trips to Japan in 1993 and 2000.
The admirable stoicism of the Japanese people made the headlines everywhere, in the Media reports flooded in anecdotal accounts, their spirit has shone strong and unwavering despite nine days of unremitting harsh weather, uncertainty, hunger and tremendous hardship.
A little verse by Acharya Mahaprajna, brief and intense, bear the stamp of his faith and consciousness, he has been an eminent promoter of peace:
"Soul is my God.
Renunciation is my prayer.
Amity is my devotion.
Self-restraint is my strength.
Non-violence is my religion."
I hope you like the poem, please add your own verse to these words!
