Salutation of the Dawn

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!

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.

From the Sanskrit

Shambhala is a Sanskrit term meaning "place of peace/tranquility/happiness".
