Wisdom of Sri Chinmoy

"I did not come into the world to prove anything. I came into the world to love everyone and everything." -Sri Chinmoy


They cling to You, but as on a greasy maypole,

Their fingers do not grip.

They use the mind’s brilliance;

But have forgotten the ways,

Of the Heart’s radiance.

They have gone deaf to the melody of Oneness.

O Allah, I would rather feel compassion in my Spirit,

Than give great discourses to scholars.

Of what use is talk of heaven,

When my anxieties and fears are endless?

Vanity of vanities ...

Let me burn, with a supernal sweetness,

The fire that rages in my every pore.

O Allah, they see a dichotomy in Your servant,

And Your Beloved Light of Truth.

What is the 'Spark' that makes them read his work?

Lantern knows that he is a slave to Thy bidding,

A mere puppet on the strands of Love;

A lost lover, searching for his Queen.

He just wants to burn, into a fire of blazing candles,

Lighting up the tarmac of the soul.

Come, O Allah. Within, without, below; above,

There are no blurs, confinements ...boundaries.

I see only You, my Beloved,

Only the dance of Delight;

Your words are a blending symphony in my core.

O my Sweetheart, I’m in the garden of ambrosial Silence;

My Heart is a field of prayer, at Your feet Divine.

-Manatita, 2nd February, 2018.


Quotes from Manatita

"I came into this world to Love and serve ... God in Himself; God in ALL. I see the same image and potential in each soul as I see in mines. I see only the Absolute. I did not come to sing a separation song." -Manatita

"Burn me ... throw me into the fire of Hades and let the Mother of all Love cradle me ... dowsing this smoldering cauldron, with Her bewildering Light. This is all I seek for all conscient and inconscient beings." -Manatita

God is ...
