Arise, O dear child of your Mother

Arise, O child of Immortality! Arise, O child of the Divine Mother! Arise, O child of our beloved Ma Bharti.
Arise, since you have slept for long! Arise, since realization has dawned upon you! Arise, since you can no longer relax!
Arise, since your Mother needs you! Arise, since you need your Mother! Arise, O dear brothers and sisters of mine, since it is already noon, and the sun is about to set!
Work, since through work you will reach God. Work, since through work you will pray. Work, since through work you will meditate.
Work, since your brothers and sisters and sons and daughters and mothers and fathers are suffering. Work, so as to lessen the suffering of your neighbor. Work, so as to make yourself an instrument of the grace of the Lord.
Work, since there is physical suffering in the universe. Work, since there is mental suffering in the universe. Sleep no longer. Dream no longer. The time is for action. The time is to wage the greatest of all wars. The time has come to conquer your self.
Work, knowing that the work is not done by you. Work, knowing that the fruits of the work are not for you. It is the Universe that works through you, and it is the Universe to whom the fruits of the work belong. Hence, abandon all fear of action – past, present and future.
