Wisdom from the Master
"He who sincerely desires
To see others happy
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.
