3: Develop Ngā Pou Mana as a sustainable organisation
Whiti ora ki te whai ao
ki te ao mārama.
Whiti ki runga, whiti ki raro.
E ngungu ki te pōhatu
E ngungu ki te rākau
tītaha ki tēnei taha
tītaha ki tērā taha
Cross over to life in the changing world
in the world of light and understanding
Cross upwards, cross downwards.
Turn to the rock
turn to the tree
leaning to this side
leaning to that side
