Wisdom from the Master

"Sacrifice does not mean that by giving we lose something. We sacrifice our limited self, to our highest and largest Self. At that time, we immediately become the highest and the largest Self." - Sri Chinmoy

A Free Verse Sonnet-Ode

Mother's sacrifice

Mother's sacrifice

Earth’s bleeding selflessness; heaven’s dancing gain.

Hope carves its fortitude and resilience

On thy Spirit, soaked with gracious dignity,

Holding thy head erect as you remain awake.

Sweetness, affection … devotion you embody,

Emerging – as if from an embryo – with dauntless Light!

Stumbling, you rise again, your glowing concern,

Filled with the tenderness of maternal beauty.

Wedded to service, your charisma lustres

Like the moon, placing thy gracefulness

On the river of servitude, diamonds dripping

From the raiment of your soul.

Still you rise, a shining jewel of priceless worth,

Leaving a trail of endless sacrifice, at the feet of Love.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 4th November, 2018

Wisdom from the Master

"A human being has many divine qualities, but there has never been another unparalleled divine quality like sacrifice, nor can there ever be." _Sri Chinmoy
