Sri Chinmoy

A moment’s peace, edifies the spirit,

Sharpens the intuition, and calms the Heart.

Like an ascending dove, it sails on the wings of Love,

Flying above the storms of life.

A moment’s peace, is blessed above all else,

And fills my core with perennial sweetness.

Taking away my vale of tears;

It embraces me with its nectar rays.

A moment’s peace, gladdens the emotions,

And eradicates anxiety.

It fills my soul with heavenly joy;

Alleviates the magnitude, of my earthly struggle.

A moment’s peace, brings forth a carousel

Of new tomorrows. It frees me

From a flood of worldly thoughts,

And destroys the rust of my unhappiness.


A moment’s peace, has the vivacity of a lion;

Yet is meek as a lamb. It grant’s me the grace

Of inward vision; delights in the sovereign

Good, above all visible things.

A moment’s peace, is contented with little;

Feels more exalted to give than to receive.

It shares in the richness of my happiness,

And is most precious, when preserved in silence.

A moment’s peace, soars on a fusion of ardent Love,

And knows the fullness of heaven.

It descends, like the dew;

Adds sparkle to this garden of Being.

A moment’s peace, evokes from deep within,

Deeds inspired by Love.

It arouses the Heart, enlightens the understanding,

And dispels, like smoke, the seeds of grief.



A moment’s peace,

Has the innocence of a child’s smile.

It kindles the psalm of benevolence,

A gift of Love supreme.

A moment’s peace,

Like the newborn, cradled in its mother’s arms.

Can and shall make this world beautiful,

A moment’s peace … …..

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier

    "A moment’s peace, awakens in me, The light of a new dawn." These are my favorite lines in my favorite verse of this poem. "Rust of my unhappiness" speaks volumes. So many striking images from the poet's heart, invite our surrender to a moment's peace. Voted Up, Useful and Beautiful!
