      Theological Geography

      Studies In The Confluence Of Mystery And Power



      Chaitanya Jyothi Museum Opening, 2000

      ☆ The Cadet Prayer, West Point, United States Military Academy ☆



      RAMANAM
      In the Name of The Father, and of The Son and of The Holy Spirit, Amen.

      Countrymen,

      ORBIS NON SUFFICIT
      SOLUS DEUS SUFFICIT

      crest_l_gray

      O God, our Father, Thou Searcher of Human hearts, help us to draw near to Thee in sincerity and truth. May our religion be filled with gladness and may our worship of Thee be natural.

      Strengthen and increase our admiration for honest dealing and clean thinking, and suffer not our hatred of hypocrisy and pretence ever to diminish. Encourage us in our endeavor to live above the common level of life. Make us to choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong, and never to be content with a half truth when the whole can be won.

      Endow us with courage that is born of loyalty to all that is noble and worthy, that scorns to compromise with vice and injustice and knows no fear when truth and right are in jeopardy.

      Guard us against flippancy and irreverence in the sacred things of life. Grant us new ties of friendship and new opportunities of service. Kindle our hearts in fellowship with those of a cheerful countenance, and soften our hearts with sympathy for those who sorrow and suffer.

      Help us to maintain the honor of the Corps untarnished and unsullied and to show forth in our lives the ideals of West Point in doing our duty to Thee and to our Country.

      All of which we ask in the name of the Great Friend and Master of all.

      AMEN

          I am. He had options, several options but felt this is his calling.

          Wife and I are planning east coast trips and yours is the first name that came up. We will meet someday soon.

            First off, thank your son on my behalf for his service. It takes a lot of inner strength and courage. Secondly, I look forward to raising a toast with you in his honor.

                This forum is entirely dedicated to wasting time and money modifying a slow motorcycle. - joel

                Our Hawks have all the power any mature, sensible rider can use on any street or highway without carrying around excessively unnecessary big-bore weight and power - squirrelman

                Bike builds can be and most time are art and expression. To take something mass produced and impersonal and make something personal that you can't stop staring at as you walk away. There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6

                  I distinctly remember the day he told me(us) that he would go to West Point. It was his freshman year of high school. I'm still amazed at his steadfast commitment and determination thus far, and that his confidence that he would receive an appointment never wavered. He's had a huge list of help along the way and I'm humbled by those that have reached out to do so. His path is now set and the journey is his. Could have been MIT, Annapolis, CalPoly or others but he's determined - and now we just have to wrap him with bubble wrap until he gets there, haha.

                  Thanks everyone.

                        I taught a lot of motorcycle classes at West Point. Really beautiful place and a nice area as well, rich with history.
