Salutation To The Dawn

Sharing one of my favorite poems written by the Indian dramatist, Kalidasa:

Look to this day!

For it is life, the very life of life.

In its brief course

Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:

The bliss of growth

The glory of action

The splendor of beauty,

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision,

But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day!

Such is the salutation to the dawn.

The ingredients to a happy life and a successful one is the Today at hand. Use the past for lessons and content – Use the future as a vision. But only live and work for Today – Just for Today…
