Divine Mother, I bow to Thee on the altar of
the sky and the ocean.
I bow to Thee on the altar of universal religions,
and as manifested in the great Masters.
I bow to thee, O Mother, as I see Thee
manifested in all mothers.
Divine Mother, I will listen to Thy songs above
all soul songs.
I will watch the play of Thy muscles
in the billows of the sea.
As I wander in the forest of my restless thoughts,
I will follow the trail of concentration
which leads to Thee.
Thou art the love which I feel behind parental,
conjugal and friendly affection.
Thou art the love behind all loves.
The Cosmic Mother: One Aspect of God (1945)
