Days of Reflection for Man Who Defined Singapore

i thought this amazingly leader, Lee Kuan Yew, article here that was in the times few weeks back was just so touching and it choked me a little to tears,

Extracted from the New York Times,

some of the paragrahs:-

“Lately, he said, he had been looking at Christian marriage vows and was drawn to the words: “To love, to hold and to cherish, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse till death do us part.”

“I told her, ‘I would try and keep you company for as long as I can.’ That’s life. She understood.” But he also said: “I’m not sure who’s going first, whether she or me.”

At night, hearing the sounds of his wife’s discomfort in the next room, he said, he calms himself with 20 minutes of meditation, reciting a mantra he was taught by a Christian friend: “Ma-Ra-Na-Tha.” “

Maranatha “Ma-Ra-Na-Tha” “Come Lord”
