My Japa Mala Experience, A Soulful Dedication to Rinita Sen. Saturday's Inspiration 13
She soothes my neck, adorns my
Princely robes; calms my soul with her virtues.
Bead one: Compassion rains from the Heart
Of Heaven; I am soaked in the tears of its ecstasy.
Bead two: Wisdom flows from the lips of Nirvana;
I learn to discriminate between Light and shadow.
Bead three: Love ascends from a profundity of fire,
My eagle-bird soars, into the bosom of Sri Krishna’s flute.
Sweet Grace, You have listened to my lamentations;
Freed me from the agonies of distress.
Your transforming justice- cauldron, burns away
My impediments; I am replenished anew.
Bead sixty: O sacred malas, you blessed me with the
Millennial boon, of ten million japas!
Now our soft tenderness and Spirit merges,
Partaking joyfully, of the sugarcane juice in Paradise.
Bead one hundred and eight. I said:
“ Form is form; emptiness is emptiness.”
The mystic-liberation-bird replied:
“In Stillness, Form is Emptiness; Emptiness is Form.”
Lantern says: “By ceaselessly chanting in Delight, I have
Become one, with Thy incandescent Light.”

~Awakening The Inner Light~
An Inferno Of Sweetness, Rages In The Heart.
O mind, you darken my Path, like night,
Subverting the corridors of radiant Light.
Yet my inner flower relishes the mercy of rain,
Its golden droplets dancing, on the fabric of my soul.
Stunned by the magical folds of cosmic grandeur,
An incandescence of moonlight floods my core.
The starlit artiste paints a melody on my Heart,
Calligraphing the beauty and wonder of Love.
I threw myself, into the agony of longing;
Her fire consumed me, until I molded
Into Her mirror of supernal bliss,
Waltzing with sweet Arias, in Her flame.
Lantern says: “When the mire of ignorance departs,
An inferno of sweetness, rages in the Heart.”
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 26th September, 2018

Wisdom-Quote from the Master
"Gratitude is the sweetest thing in a seeker's life - in all human life.
If there is gratitude in your Heart, then there will be tremendous sweetness in your eyes." -Sri Chinmoy
Do you use beads for chanting and if so does it help?
