This prayer teaches us true humility which is the first condition for knowing the Divine.
January 3, 1914
IT is always good to look within ourselves from time to time and see that we are nothing and can do nothing, but we must then turn our look towards Thee, knowing that Thou art all and that Thou canst do all.
Thou art the life of our life and the light of our being,
Thou art the master of our destiny.”
The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)
