Wisdom from the Master
"When your love is pure or spiritual,
There's no demands, no expectations.
There's only the sweetest feeling of spontaneous
Oneness with the human being, or beings concerned." - Sri Chinmoy
"Only two miracles are worth seeing.
The miracle of loving,
And the miracle of forgiving." - Sri Chinmoy
To Merge With The Dawn of The Rising Sun.
Once the ignorance of the Heart has faded,
Then the Light within will naturally emerge. Only
When the food is flavoured, will its taste improve.
You are like radiance to the sun, fragrances to
Jasmines; the breath that adds the culinary zest to food.
I do not know, that I’ll like to walk in anyone
Else’s shadow, for while it can encourage empathy,
It may also awaken my inner demons. Why seek the
Ephemeral, when I can laugh with the crimson sun?
Sunflowers sprayed me with their golden tint
Of opulence; petunias cascaded at the feet of
Mayan Queens. Light zephyrs blow, and the scented
Breath of lavenders rush towards me, I become enveloped
In their splendour, struck with awe by the light of Spring.
At nights the owl awakes; we tell ballads of the soul,
Using a lute of such magnificence, that the moon emits
A drunken glow; the stars dance to an ethereal
Symphony, as they twinkle in the perennial heavens.
Until You came, many years flowed by, filled with a
River of loneliness and regrets. Living a flawed life, I was
No more than a beggar, feeding of the crumbs at desire’s
Table. How would I know that the moon could sing, Orion
Twirl and the Queen of my Heart appear, at Your captivating call?
I do not wish to play the flute to sparrows, when
Thy cadences are so much more lyrical! Why eat at
Palatial banquets, when You are glowing in my soul?
It is the sweetness of Thy wine which calls me, to Your
Constant array of luminous treats. Hearts blending together,
Let us rise as one, to merge with the dawn of the rising sun.
- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 7th August, 2021.

Of our happiness-life." - Sri Chinmoy
"Just one smile, immensely
Increases, the beauty of the universe." - Sri Chinmoy
"If you do the right thing, eventually
You will inspire others to do the right thing...

That we offer to the world." - Sri Chinmoy
