Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

A Seer-Poet


Poetry expresses or manifests itself in innumerable forms. Love, the Supreme Artiste; Author of both Light and shadow, is quintessentially boundless and unfathomable.

The esoteric or mystic poet, is predominantly a vehicle or channel for this higher Light-Source, painting a calligraphy of myriad patterns, for the Spirit of life. This – like a stage on the theatre of experience – is conveyed through wit, humour, wisdom or fascination and other forms of endeavour, all uniquely valid in their own way.

Is it a hanging tear drop; a scream of laughter; a splash across the screen of memory; a word or sound to send the Heart into a state of rapture? Who can tell? One perceives, both human and non-human, but only the Light fathoms.

The silv’ry rain falls upon the wind; flowers sing and dance, while blossoming to symphonies; the willow whispers to the moon.

Wisdom-quote from Sri Chinmoy


Burning With Love in the Garden of Enchantments

Last night I visited the Garden of Enchantments.

My winged falcon soared;

Ascended like a cordless kite,

Floating above the portals of Her illumined Kingdom.

O bird of Light, you sing and dance,

Reeling from an inebriate wine,

Flowing from the redolence of Her breath, like tulips.

She played with the succulence of my lips,

Burning with the intensity of a thousand flares!

My core became aflame with passion,

Beating my Heart with the fire of longing.

Burning and stuporous from this fever of Love,

I was dowsed and cradled

On the bosom of the Beloved One.

-Manatita 26th February, 2018.

Does not guarantee happiness,

But goodness does." -Sri Chinmoy

    The winged falcon is the Soul and when I say O bird of Light, I'm addressing the falcon, my soul. Her, She, Beloved, is the Absolute Supreme.

    We like to make use of falcon's a lot in esoteric poetry. It is really a bird of prey and we can use its claws to mean many things. Here I use it, because like the eagle, it soars so well ... like the soul ... is majestic ... powerful ... The Phoenix is the bird of Light, the immortal bird. Thank you so much!!
