"Rebirth asserts a truth

which is by no means always written legibly for all men on the face of nature. It tells us that the spiritual is

higher than the material; that in this universe spirit counts for more than matter."

where religion ends...with rebirth"

"Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay

"I am rebirth and life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall

live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die."

It is the

hour to rend thy chains,
The blossom time of souls.
~Katherine Lee Bates

Could life so end, half told;

its school so fail?
Soul, soul, there is a sequel to thy tale!
~Robert Mowry Bell

The stars shall fade

away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal

Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.


Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
~Albert Laighton


Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.

Let every man and woman

count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, "Christ

is risen," but "I shall rise." ~Phillips Brooks

the opportunity
to start over no matter what my circumstances."

"It was inevitable that

Jesus Christ should be crucified.
It was also inevitable that He should rise again."
(H. R. L.


"No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown."


"We live and die: Christ died and lived!"
(John Stott)

" And he saith unto them, Be not

affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they

laid him." [Mark 16:6]

I think of the garden after the rain; And hope to my heart comes singing, "At morn

the cherry-blooms will be white, And the Easter bells be ringing!"

Awake, thou wintry earth-- Fling off thy

sadness! Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth Your ancient gladness! Christ is risen.

Tomb, thou shalt not hold

Him longer; Death is strong, but Life is stronger; Stronger than the dark, the light; Stronger than the wrong, the

right; Faith and Hope triumphant say Christ will rise on Easter Day.

Asatho ma Sat gamaya
Tamasao ma

Jyotir gamaya
Mrityur ma Amritam gamaya
Om Shanti Om Shanti Om Shanti

From untruth lead us to

From darkness lead us to Light
From death lead us to Immortality
Om Peace Om Peace Om Peace

-- Vedic verse
