AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Tapasya, Jnaanam and Shakti Indians!   it is the spirituality of India, the Sadhana of India - tapasya, jnanam, sakti  - that must make us free and great. And these great things of the East are ill-rendered by their inferior English equivalents - discipline, philosophy, strength.
Tapasya is more than discipline;
it is the materialisation in ourselves by spiritual means of the divine energy creative, preservative and destructive. Jnanam is more than philosophy, it is the inspired and direct knowledge which comes of what our ancients called drsti spiritual sight. Sakti is more than strength, it is the universal energy which moves the stars, made individual.

It is the East that must conquer in India's uprising. It is the Yogin who must stand behind the political leader or manifest within him; Ramadas must be born in one body with Shivaji, The divorce of intellect and spirit, strength and purity may help a European revolution, but by a European strength we shall not conquer.
