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
