Journey to Light

I see you’re crying; your man has done wrong;

I see you’re sighing, no Light in his song.

I see you’re troubled, there’s no wrong and right,

All Divine Providence, journeys to Light.

I pay homage to indigenous people everywhere!!


Blending Together Like Nights and Stars

Light zephyrs soothe my Spirit, me

Waltzing on ice, kissing the snowflakes as

They glide, on the white fluffy scenery of nature,

My soul flooded with the wine of peerless Bliss.

What is fate? Heaven has given me a boon,

And the doors of my inner Citadel, have opened

To the Light. I fly on the memories of rose-pink

Autumns, white butterflies flapping their wings, across

The serenity of rippling lakes, we once gazed at together.

Now my Heart dances as You smile, Your cheeks

Glimmering amidst brown eyes, whispering an

Intimacy and tenderness, deep into the pulse of my

Agony of ten thousand summers, searching for You, O Lover.

There are no more fires in my blood, but white and

Red roses, their wafts emerging without thorns, in

Synergy with Thy breath, beating the drums of harmony

And Oneness, we, slowly blending together, like nights and stars.

Happy Ganeshshotsava!!


Cradled on Thy Lap of Perennial Beauty

Symphonies play endlessly, in a

Soul-bird constantly longing; like the

Mother’s heart for the new-born; like

The darkness for stars that never sleep.

This vessel has roamed, ‘cross centuries

Of destiny, yearning for the Light of the

Unknowable. Hope stands undying, steadying

The flickering candles of supernal Love.

Come, cute harp of the celestials! Your ceaseless

Music pushes me on, in search of the One I knew

So well; from whom I’m now, so painfully separated.

O my sweet Shyama, Come! This insomnia will cease,

Only after I kiss Thy cute cheeks, swooning in Your

Bewildering gaze; cradled on Thy lap of perennial beauty.

The Great Avatar (God-man, Lord) Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa


Wisdom from the Master

"...the divine in us knows that Truth, Light and Divinity are everywhere. They are not the monopoly of any individual; everybody has deep within him Peace, Light and Bliss in infinite measure." - Sri Chinmoy

"The human in us constantly cries for success, more success, abundant success. But the divine in us wants progress, constant progress, inner and outer. This progress is founded entirely upon self giving, and self giving is the precursor of God-becoming." - Sri Chinmoy

Eternal Light
