Wisdom from the Seeress Mirabai

"I planted the creeper of Love,

And silently watered it with my tears.

Now it has grown and overspread my dwelling." -Mirabai


New York, New York

She’s big, powerful, majestic … her pillars

Stretching across the city like neon lights.

Her body throbs vibrantly,

Pulsating kisses to distant lands.

Buzzing, buzzing … a rhythmic melody of sounds,

Emits from her numerous modes of actions.

Grandiose is the allure of her skyscrapers!

They say she never sleeps …

Her sonorous symphony, like Marley’s lyrics,

Echoing her eloquent notes in all directions;

Her parks and rivers bonded together,

By the stateliness of her bridges.

A sacred god, longing to be conquered,

A stature of liberty, still waiting to be explored.

Founding Fathers


The Spirit of America Rejoices

A burst of Light; the virgin dawn awakes;

Hope blossoms in the soul of man.

The Spirit of America rejoices;

Liberty strums its melody in the Hearts of all.

The Tao of dauntless courage,

Heralds yet another promising sunrise.

My core rejoices, with America’s indomitable will.

The minstrels dance from heaven;

Blowing the victory-conches of supernal Love.

The joyful tears of a Nation fills the skies.

Into a river of copious Love,

The Spirit of the Founding Fathers,

Floats on the crest of silvery wings,

Kissing the Light of the moon, in peerless bliss.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Revised 23rd August, 2018.


Wisdom from the Seeress Mirabai

"Do not forget Love.

It will bring all the madness you need,

To unfurl yourself across the universe." -Mirabai
