e a s t e r m e s s a g e


gáudii discámus et miseria

learn to love joy more than misery

lære at elske fryd mere end elendighed

aprender a amar la alegría más de la miseria

apprendre à aimer la joie plus que la misère

a fhoghlaim chun grá áthas níos mó ná brón

daha Fazla sevinç Öğrenmek değil sefalet

ない悲惨より多くの喜びを学びます  

Nai  hisan Yori ōku no yorokobi o manabimasu 

고통보다 기쁨이 더 사랑을

gotongboda gippeum-i deo salang-eul

The more love, joy than pain


Kaṣṭālanu kādu Prēma svīkarin̄ci 

కష్టాలను కాదు ప్రేమ స్వీకరించి


To the people of Lahore - this is a call of defiance. 


ਪਿਆਰ ਪਾ ਨਾ ਦੁੱਖ

Pi'āra pāNā dukha

writing
book(s)

a pair of candlesticks
glass view
