The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda/Volume 8/Epistles - Fourth Series/CLXXX Nivedita
To Sister Nivedita
26th May, 1900.
All blessings on you. Don't despond in the least. Shri wah Guru! Shri wah
Guru! You come of the blood of a Kshatriya. Our yellow garb is the robe of
death on the field of battle. Death for the cause is our goal, not success.
Shri wah Guru! . . .
Black and thick are the folds of sinister fate. But I am the master. I raise my hand, and lo, they vanish! All this is nonsense. And fear? I am the Fear of fear, the Terror of terror, I am the fearless secondless One, I am the Rule of destiny, the Wiper-out of fact. Shri wah Guru! Steady, child, don't be bought by gold or anything else, and we win!
