Wisdom from the Master

"He who sincerely desires

To see others happy

is indeed

A man of peace." - Sri Chinmoy

"My life is only half full

When I receive.

My heart is completely full

Only when I give." - Sri Chinmoy


Awake to the Joy of an Illumining Dawn

You are my silent Meteor, illuminating

The heavens with dazzling Light. You are the

Shadow I long to see, even in my darkness; only

A true Lover, comprehends this ‘thrill’ I feel for You.

I’m a desperate moth, flying into the arms of burning

Flames, how can I quench the agony of this yearning?

So many eons of struggle, re-awakening the lustre of

Your beauty; now I worry about losing You, yet again.

“Come! Sweet Shyama! Tarry a little longer.”

My Beloved came, kissing my soul sweetly,

As Her calligraphy of garlands, flooded my Heart

With flames of fire, relieving me of ungainly mists.

My speech dissolved, silencing the intellect. I awoke to the

Joy of an illumining dawn, filling my core with speechless Love.

What I am

She says that she knows me, and perhaps

She’s right. I’m but a merry song-bird of the

Dawn, whispering to souls, of the glories of

Creation. I am but a strand on the Breath of

Music, saying to the Universe, “I Love you!”

I am but the symphony of song-bearers,

Huddled together, transmitting their lute-like

Melodies in every Heart; I’m but a twinkling

Star, shimmering in the Andromeda Galaxy,

Revealing the bewildering grandeur of the Unknown.

O Love, I am the voice of sweet symphonies, manifesting their

Myriad beauty, in the golden tabernacle of Thy sacred tavern.

I’m the echo of celestial nymphs, pounding the drums of

Heaven, casting out shadows, from each beating pulse.

I am a spark of the Festival of Lights, shining in each soul.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier
