Statue at Dona Paula

At Dona Paula, there is a statue of Mr and Mrs Robert Knox. It was a Dutch sculptress, Baroness Yrse Von Leistner who etched the sculpture as she was in awe of the philosopher Robert Knox.

 

On marble plaque, the following words are written

 

"asato ma sat gamaya

tamaso ma jyotir gamaya

mrityoma amrtam gamaya

 

Lead me from untruth to truth

from darkness to light

and from death to immortality"

 

It is taken from Brhadaranyaka Upanishad
