In the mighty Indian Ocean  
In this wonderful little isle  
We - Sri Lankans,   
are proud of,   
 the meaningful ‘National Flag’  
The four ‘Bo’ leaves  
that stand in the four corners  
Metta, Muditha, Karuna, Upekkha  
are the treasures of valuable virtues  
that lead us to a life sublime.  
Metta for loving kindness; benevolence  
Karuna for compassion; care and concern  
Muditha for empathetic joy  
Upekkha for equanimity;  
a balanced state of mind.  
That is what should be   
fulfilled by one and all,  
who are skilled in goodness  
must - live in peace,  
 harmony and brotherhood!  
So, let’s arise! Awake!  
Striving to live out the sublime virtues  
caring and loving, with kindness;  
living out in equality and full consciousness   
as one united nation!  
The more we are aware  
The more humane we will be  
irrespective of caste, creed and race.  
Let’s bow down to values and virtues  
to let our nation glow!
