New Era Community
Wayfarer, friend, let us travel together. Night is near,
wild beasts are about, and our campfire may go out. But if we agree to share
the night watch, we can conserve our forces.
Tomorrow our path will be long and we may become exhausted.
Let us walk together. We shall have joy and festivity. I shall sing for you
the song your mother, wife and sister sang. You will relate for me your
father's story about a hero and his achievements. Let our path be one.
Be careful not to step upon a scorpion, and warn me about
any vipers. Remember, we must arrive at a certain mountain village.
Traveler, be my friend.
We are dissipating superstition, ignorance and fear.
We are forging courage, will and knowledge.
Every striving toward enlightenment is welcome.
Every prejudice, caused by ignorance, is exposed.
Thou who dost toil, are not alive in thy consciousness
the roots of cooperation and community?
If this flame has already illumined thy brain, adopt
the signs of the Teaching of Our mountains.
Thou who dost labor, do not become wearied puzzling
over certain expressions. Every line is the highest measure of simplicity.
Greeting to workers and seekers!
