Benediction

And now peace abides.
Self is dispersed and there is no more anguish;
Truth is attained, and affliction has ceased to be;
The pilgrimage of pain is finished,
There is no more toil and darkness,
There is no more doubt and weeping,
Unrest and sorrow have vanished away.
Love folds the world; to all that suffer, Peace!
