Penang - The Great City of Harmony

I heard Song of Unity in the streets
Of harmony in the island! 
Ancient city of Penang
I walked and walked every step, 
People of Malay, Hindus, Muslims, Chinese, Christians
Together walked with me, 
With Pride and peace.

The bell of St. George Church,
Gave the glad tidings with a message,
Forgive the human failings
Give and give the hope of success.
I entered the Kuan Yin temple
With fragrance, the message radiating,
Remove "I" and "Me"!
That will eliminate human ego.

What a beautiful reception 
With a great music of
Nadaswaram recital in the 
Sri Mahamariamman temple;
The temple gave a message 
All places are our own, people of universe 
Are our kith and kin.
The Teochew temple gave me a smile 
With a message ?if you remove "ego" 
Hatred will disappear;

In the great mosque participated in prayer
With a Quranic recitation 
"Oh Almighty lead us the path of righteousness"
The Yap Kongsi, temple gave me 
The welcome song "eliminate harted, 
Violence will disappear.
In another temple Kho Kongsi led us to the path
Remove the violence in mind, peace in life will be filled with.

The Acheh Mosque gave us the message
Message of removing the pain 
of fellow human beings!
This is Almighty?s Command!

When I completed my pilgrimage
The streets of Harmony of Penang.
Presented an integrated spiritual centre
With message to the Universe.
Every human being will give and give 
The best of human societies will be born.
