Seite 130 - ... shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to six months, or with fine which may extend to one thousand rupees, or with both.
Seite 88 - It is Christ who rules British India, and not the British Government. England has sent out a tremendous moral force, in the life and character of that mighty prophet, to conquer and hold this vast empire. None but Jesus, none but Jesus, none but Jesus ever deserved this bright, this precious diadem, India ; and Jesus shall have it.
Seite 259 - Then seeds were sown, and mighty powers arose, Nature below, and Power and Will above ; Who knows the secret ? who proclaimed it here, Whence, whence this manifold creation sprang ? The gods themselves came later into being, Who knows from whence this great creation sprang ? He from whom all this great creation came, Whether his will created or was mute, The most high Seer that is in highest heaven, He knows it — or perchance e'en He knows not This hymn is important, not only by what it says, but...
Seite 270 - Proteus' birth : His words are bonds, his oaths are oracles ; His love fincere, his thoughts immaculate ; His tears, pure meflengers fent from his heart ; His heart as far from fraud, as heaven from earth.
Seite 259 - Was it the water's fathomless abyss ? There was not death — yet was there nought immortal, There was no confine betwixt day and night ; The only One breathed breathless by itself, Other than It there nothing since has been. Darkness there was, and all at first was veiled In gloom profound — an ocean without light — The germ that still lay covered in the husk Burst forth, one nature, from the fervent heat.
Seite 8 - You are all alike; if anything seems strange to you and does not please you at once, you turn away. When I first heard Italian music, it was no music to me at all; but I went on and on, till I began to like it, or what you call understand it. It is the same with everything else. You say our religion is no religion, our poetry no poetry, our philosophy no philosophy. We try to understand and appreciate whatever Europe has produced, but do not imagine that therefore we despise what India has produced....
Seite 4 - As classical scholars yearn to see Rome or Athens, I yearned to see Benares, and to bathe in the sacred waters of the Ganges.
Seite 87 - What power is that which sways the destinies of India at the present moment ? You are mistaken if you think that it is the ability of Lord Lytton in the cabinet, or the military genius of Sir Frederick Haines in the field, that rules India. It is not politics, it is not diplomacy that has laid a firm hold of the Indian heart. It is not the glittering bayonet nor the fiery cannon of the British army that can make our people loyal.
Seite 259 - Then first came love upon it, the new spring Of mind — yea, poets in their hearts discerned, Pondering, this bond between created things And uncreated.
Seite 66 - A hermit's forest cell, and fellowship with deer, A harmless meal of fruit, stone beds beside the stream ; Are helps to those who long for Siva's guidance here ; But be the mind devout, our homes will forests seem.
