Wisdom-Quote from the Master
“The poet Keats said, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” But what is that thing? That thing, from the spiritual point of view, is our soul. The soul is eternally beautiful. God expresses Himself in the physical through beauty, pure beauty, beauty without a blemish. This beauty is not merely skin-deep, but it is in the soul. Here the soul is expressing itself through the physical form.” – Sri Chinmoy
I Bathe in a Pageantry of Ceaseless Light
Colourful and radiant, the petunias twirl
Their red and white petals,
Smiling and dancing, as their blossoms unfurl.
I walk into the meadow, with a joyful spirit;
The sun comes out of the heavens and kisses my cheeks.
Today is like a paragon of serene enchantments,
And the wafts whispering in my nostrils,
Chant of the glories and grandeur of Love.
The song-birds continue to enchant with their melodies,
I become immerse in a pageantry of ceaseless Bliss.
The earth greets me, with a cascade of red roses
Beneath my feet; a light drizzle kisses my unsullied face.
I swoon in a magical mirror of my Beloved’s lustre;
My Heart bathes in an ocean, of incandescent Delight.

The Spirit of The Word
The magnolia said to the nightingale:
“You sing so sweetly, my dear.”
It is the dawn of thy tenderness,” responded
The song-bird, “that inspires my eloquence.”
I saw a magenta leaf, gliding gracefully ‘pon
The eve. She placed her gentleness, on the laps
Of two lovers, enthralled by the
Breath-taking splendour of the sun.
Love tunes a melody, in the embryo
Of the unborn. A new birth emerges,
Descends into the golden womb of destiny.
The Spirit of words, within our core does blend,
To feed our Hearts and minds;
Some broken fences mend.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 8th October, 2018.
