Wisdom from Sri Chinmoy

"My Love of God, has no need

Of Heaven's Bliss. For my Love

of God Itself, is the highest Bliss." -Sri Chinmoy

"There is only one thing that is, was

And ever shall be, and that is Love.

The Love that creates, the Love that nourishes

And the Love that sustains God's Universe." - Sri Chinmoy


Adorned by moonlight; riding on stars

She came, a bright spectacle of candescent

Beauty. I was a delicate bird and She, a strong

Eagle, yet I was willing to go through fire to see

Her smile; to blend into that illustrious gaze.

My life of success and failure, were transitory

Impostors, yet I only became prudent when Love

Entered, carrying Her lustre in the sunset dusk;

Now my Heart soars, like the Phoenix, its joys a flowing

River of scents, a thousand times more redolent than roses.

In my eyes, even to see the silhouette of Thy form

Is Bliss Divine. What else can this poor soul do,

Other than ascend to glory, in Thy effulgent flames? I feel

No beat but Thine own pulse, sing no notes but Your sonatas.

For You, my Darling, I will kiss the silvery moon; taste

The redolence of flowers. You’re much more than a

Favourite memory, and the agony of my yearning Is intense!

May the immensity of my adulation, be like that

Of the Psalmist David, my love-songs more magical,

Than the eloquence of a hundred nightingales!

This ephemeral world is nothing, compared to

The bewilderment of Thy gaze! Where is the strength

Of my shadows, when Thy lustre emanates in my soul?

How I love the darkness! For while I no longer

Dance in its shadows, I recognize its value in guiding

Me to the Light, to You, my enchanting Melody.

Now our souls, like a lute and strings are merged;

Our hands clasped together, for we belong to the

Scented emptiness, in the blissful meadows of Paradise.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 9th July, 2021

Wisdom from the Master

"Be kind, be all sympathy,

For each and every human being,

is forced to fight against himself." - Sri Chinmoy

"God descends from above,

To treasure my Heart and not my house." - Sri Chinmoy

The majesty of a well-turned phrase. The beauty of the English language when it is caressed. The brilliance of the written word when it is inspired by love. These are things that come to mind when I read your tributes, my friend.
