Do Not Deny the God Within You

Let every man and woman and child, without respect of 
caste or birth, weakness or strength, hear and learn that 
behind the strong and the weak, behind the high and the low, behind every one, there is that Infinite Soul, 
assuring the infinite possibility and the infinite 
capacity of all to become great and good. 

Let us proclaim to every soul: 
उत्तिष्ठत जाग्रत प्राप्य वरान्निबोधत -- arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached. Arise, awake! 

Awake from this hypnotism of weakness. 
None  is really weak; the soul is infinite, omnipotent, and 
Stand up, assert yourself, proclaim the God within you, do not deny Him!
