Wisdom from the Master

" ...Light is an unconditional gift from the transcendental Supreme ...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



Endlessly Singing a Song Called Love

They come and they go –

The intimacy of Spring; the dance of twinkling stars.

The autumnal rain beats upon my window;

I yearn for the kiss of the indigo moon.

When the child smiles, its snow-clad gaze,

Sweetens the intensity of the Heart’s joy.

Magnolias heighten the beauty of daybreak,

As the all-nurturing sun, heralds the fullness of dawn.

Yet I see only You, my Sweetheart, only You.

They come and they go … Yours is the thrill that doesn’t.

In my Light and in my darkness,

In the allure of the evening sun,

Lantern knows that You are the Breath of Breaths,

Singing Your Love-Songs endlessly in my soul.

O Illuming Light, Come!

O illumining Light, resolve my Heart’s aching,

For this burning kiss of Love.

Day and night, I wander,

Lost in the twilight sleep of separation.

Long have I traversed this mental jungle.

My pangs are numerous; my pulse turbulent.

Steeped in a maze of numerous desires,

I long for the birth of the liberating dawn.

On the isolated strands of life, I travel,

Despair and loneliness my life-long friends.

My soul cries for the coming of my sunrise –

Thy sweet intimacy of fiery Love.

O illumining Light, Come! Wrap me in Thy golden lustre,

So that I can see my way Home.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 1st September, 2018.
