My Lips Carves It’s Verses, For Another Glorious Realm. An Offering to Anusha Jain


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

Wisdom of Sri Chinmoy

"When I say Light, I am speaking about illumination. This illumination will first take place in the realm of the God-manifesting soul. Next it will take place in the aspiring heart, then in the searching mind, then in the dynamic vital and, finally, in the wakeful body. " -Sri Chinmoy

"Light embraces humanity with all its imperfections and tries to illumine human ignorance so the human life can be elevated into the divine life." -Sri Chinmoy


Forgive me, O my sweet …radiant angel.

If I have not reached your laughter,

Or charmed your mind,

It is because my lips carves its verses,

For another glorious realm.

I converse with pines and willows,

Whispering their sacred chants,

To the rhythm of soft, tender and delicate music.

Laced with the fire of sweetness, they are

Reluctant to intrude uninvited.

Forgive me, O my sweet …radiant angel.

It is to your beauty that I speak;

The seeds of your yearning I address,

To dance with rhapsody in thy soul.

I left my mind, only to emerge

Waltzing within the deity of the Heart.

Sitting at the feet of Eternity, Love spoke to me,

Instilling Her magical lyrics,

Into the gateways of my Spirit;

I dine at the banquet, of my Beloved One.

The golden sails of infinity beckons me


Come! O my sweet … radiant angel.

A bird of spectacle; a silvery cloud,

Tugged at the cadence of my core,

Filling it with spontaneous joy.

The golden sails of Infinity beckons me;

My Captain commands, “Go on! Go on!”

O adorable One, I am immersed in Your embrace,

And my rapture is unbounded.

Do paint the grandeur of Your Beauty,

Into the life of all Thy lovers on the wheels of Time.

Thank you so much, Robin. Praise be!

Did you read the piece by Shams Tabriz? It is about 10-15 minutes and worth having. It's called The 40 Rules on Love. Easily available in both text and video, if you google it.

Robin Carretti from Hightstown on December 12, 2017:

Just such divinity and so flowing with subtle and softness type of energy that's what I got out of your video it took me to another flight so inspiring your quality of writing. I deeply enjoyed my visit.

Dear Chitrangada,

I took only two quotes from Guruji's writings about Light. The words of Seers are very powerful. The full talk reads like an except fro the Rishis of yore.

Thank you so much!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on November 16, 2017:

Excellent tribute to a talented hubber. You have weaved the words beautifully and then connected it to the Divine , so it has to be beautiful.

What an interpretation of ‘light’ and ‘illumination’, in the introductory paragraph.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful tribute!

Yes, fear is one of them. In Yoga Philosophy, we use the word' Ignorance' (number two). It covers fear, insecurity, ego, attachments, greed, hate, everything ... the idea is that we do wrong because we just don't know.

It can be argued that the Jews were afraid of Christ as they felt him a threat; that he was usurping their power. Still, if they were conscious of their own inner Light; that he represented that Light and was there to point the way, they would not have killed him. Hence Christ saying:

"Forgive them, o my Father, for they know not what they do."

Yes, thank you for your noble contribution as always.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 15, 2017:

Light truly is that which illuminates. I voted other because I think it is fear.

Ah, my dear Nellieanna.

You know the secret. A very wise soul you are. Gracias por todos.

Ah Bill,

You are both wise and discerning souls. Thank you so much

Nellieanna Hay from TEXAS on November 10, 2017:

Beauty is in the words and in the spirit they express!

I love the Tagore quotation set to peaceful music. Inspiring.

Illumination is the greatest of treasures for human creatures. Infinity is in progress now. We stepped into life from it and abide in it while here and continue in it when we leave. So I guess we shouldn't do, say or think anything here we wouldn't confidently do, say or think before or afterwards! After all, the illumination is ongoing.

Hope your week is ending well, dear Manatita.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on November 10, 2017:

You began with the perfect quotation, then followed with lovely and poignant verse. Well done, my talented friend.
