Beauty divine,
Beauty supreme.

"Love is beauty's sweet touch." -Sri Chinmoy

Wings of beauty


Inner beauty, etches its thrill in a soul on fire,

Pulling at the wings of its enchantment.

The rose's dauntless fragrance and sweet sacrifice,

Evokes a soft, sacred longing;

A paragon of delight in a Heart of Love.

You have not done so badly, my dear.

So what if thorns at times veil thy splendour?

The Beloved responds to the sweet scent

Of lavender wafts, breathing in thy soul.

You have not done so badly, my dear.

O radiant beauty, O my pure, snow- white flower,

The aroma of thy inner garlands,

Gives life to my hopes; hold silent

Conversations with the core of my longing,

Reaching out to the pinnacle of your dreams.

The beauty of innocent play


Come! Let us be like innocent children,

Playing without guile;

Dancing beneath the whistling bamboo;

Singing and sharing our naiveté- pranks;

Melting the Hearts of all whom we encounter.

O radiant beauty, O my pure, snow- white flower,

Let us go to the haven of Love.

As my thoughts linger in your direction,

So doth thy Spirit sing like the hummingbird,

Sprinkling a delectable recipe, inside my hungry soul.

Light, my Light, I am in your scented rays;

Bloom in the garden of your constant aromas.

I lie in the effulgence of your tender Spirit,

Absorbed in the aspirations of thy tomorrows.

O my priceless, creative and delicate flower, Come!!

Most beautiful —
The golden disc in the eastern firmament
Early in the morning!" -Sri Chinmoy
