The Way of Love

"He who Loves, never grows old.

God is a shining example."

"Just one smile immensely increases,

The beauty of the universe." -Sri Chinmoy

Dawn has always been the precursor of newness. Each moment is new, each moment is a renewal of the sunset of summer, into the magenta-rose of Autumnal leaves.

Again, we know that the immaculate purity of the snow, heralds the harsh cold of winter, just as the symphony of starlings; the merriment and laughter of lavenders; the fragrance of jasmines, reminds us of the birth of Spring.

Shadows never last, that is why we say that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The deep stillness of night, will give way to the indigo beauty of the moon. Thorns protects a plant, only to give us the sacrificial redolence of roses.

Love exists only because we do, along with all Its creations and will most certainly protect us. Bear in mind however, that it has three prominent aspects: creation, preservation and transformation. Much Love.

Dawn Smiles on Our Tomorrows


So today we are in deep reflection;

Faced with the mortality of this bodily garment,

We feel loneliness, remorse, insecurity and fear.


Be as calm as the breeze, my unfettered song-birds, for

The Alchemist who sends this invisible messenger, is the One

Continuing to mold us, into an ornament par excellence.


Light has involuted through centuries! Caressing the

Beauty of rugged rocks, She pushes upwards – nature’s scent

In the flora and fauna; waltzing in the splendour of daffodils.


The winds of Love may sometimes bring tornados;

Yet She becomes the breeze offering solace –

A mantle beneath the brilliance of the sun.


Last night the moon came dancing in my abyss, as dawn smiled

On my tomorrows. The song-bearing minstrels dined within my

Castle, Love nestling on my lap, bathing my doubts with sweetness.

Alone with the Alone, I wept God’s rain, grateful for Her deliverance.


We are the Light of the Heart, far greater than the Temple

Of the sun. Quintessentially that sweet Emptiness, in the

Realm of the celestials. So Come! Let us rise like Maya Angelou,

The Beloved awaits inside our shrines, to offer Her unspoken Silence.

Wisdom from the Master

." There can be no fear, there cannot even be an iota of fear, when we live in the effulgence of our soul. -Sri Chinmoy

"The child runs to his father and does anything he wants. He can do this precisely because he has established an inner oneness with his father. When there is inner oneness, there can be no fear. A tiny drop is afraid of the mighty ocean as long as it retains its individuality and personality." - Sri Chinmoy

"...Let us start with the mental fear. You have fear in your mind precisely because you do not consciously want to expand your mind. This expansion of the mind does not mean an expansion of the intellectual capacity..."- Sri Chinmoy

"To live constantly in the divine effulgence of our soul,

Only one thing is needed, a conscious inner cry.

This inner cry is called aspiration,

The mounting flame deep within us.

When this flame rises up towards the Highest,

It illuminates everything around it." - Sri Chinmoy

Wisdom from the Master

"Darkness is transformed into Light, fear into strength, doubt into certainty, ignorance into wisdom and death into immortality." -Sri Chinmoy

"My morning begins,

And I tell my Lord Supreme

That I am prayerfully chained

To His Heart." - Sri Chinmoy

"None can deny the fact that every step of progress which the world has made has come from both the smiles of prosperity and the tears of adversity.

Adversity, like poverty, is no sin. One merit of adversity none can deny: It helps us to be stronger within. The stronger we are within, the brighter we are without." - Sri Chinmoy

Do you know what I want to be?

I want to be the rising sun of tomorrow’s hope. -Sri Chinmoy


Hope and faith are two intimate brothers; they always go together.
Hope nourishes faith and faith treasures hope. – Sri Chinmoy


Never give up hope!
Hope ultimately succeeds.

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope
Even in the sunset of your life. – Sri Chinmoy
