Singing Eloquent Praises to the Rising Sun. Monday's Inspiration 87, to the new Hubber Ishika Mehere

Author:

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

Wisdom from Sri Chinmoy

"True inner joy is self-created. It does not rely on any outer circumstances. A river is flowing in and through you, carrying the message of Joy. This divine Joy, is the sole purpose of life."

"Inside each one of us is a beautiful flower garden. This is the garden of the soul. With each lesson we learn, the garden grows. As we learn together, our individual gardens, form a tranquil Paradise." - Sri Chinmoy.

Da Vinci paints and Mona’s face glimmers,

Like an Egyptian Empress. You smile,

And the sun and stars blush; roses

Cascade petals at Your feet of Love.


The blue moon hugs the night with its brilliance,

Then slowly fades away. Not so Your lustre, for it

Lingers In my Heart, my soul becoming holy, like an

Awakening dawn, like fingers cupped, bowing to

A thousand Meccas at the portals of Heaven’s tavern.


My sighs melt in fire, Your flames burning the dross of

My web of ignorance, to make me whole again. No more

A flickering candle, we dance, in this sacred moment. Lanterns

Merge with our ascent, taking us above the lustrous twilight.


What is Love? All I know, is that we soar to dizzy

Heights, way beyond human, as I bathe in the

Lavender of Your sweetness. The blaze of your red-hot

Breath, nurtures the entreaties, in my agony of longing.


We are like blue skies that hide the rain; Yet the

Night owl watches, as we roam uncharted tabernacles.

Now I know why the soul in drunken ecstasy, glimmers

Like the dawn, singing eloquent praises to the rising sun.


-Manatita, the Lantern Carrier. 28/7/21

Wisdom from Sri Chinmoy

“Be sincere in your thoughts, be pure in your feelings. You will not have to run after happiness, happiness will run after you”

"Be universal in your love. You will see the universe to be the picture of your own being."

“The difficulty is that we try to perfect others, before we perfect ourselves.”

“Your soul has a special mission. Your soul is supremely conscious of it. You are not the body. You are not the senses. You are not the mind. These are all limited. You are the soul, which is unlimited. Your soul is infinitely powerful. Your soul defies all time and space. Meditate with, you will discover your mission." - Sri Chinmoy

What a heartfelt write.

It is awesome!

I love your quote by Rumi.

We all struggle in life & love.

But we must get to that point to ask why?

Then we can find our way tonthe spiritual grace that awaits us.

What a wonderful gesture to welcome a newbie to Hubpages.

Fantastic words that touch the core of ones heart.

I am beginning to love the quotes of Sri Chinmoy.

This one is my favorite.

“Be sincere in your thoughts, be pure in your feelings. You will not have to run after happiness, happiness will run after you”

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on August 02, 2021:

Manatita, that is a very lovely welcome to a newcomer. And you chose very relevant words from Sri Chimoy. I hope they touched others the way they touched me. A little humor here, the picture of the Mona Lisa must have been cropped. The UFO is missing. Blessings, have a lovely day.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on August 02, 2021:

Cute eh?

Banging my own drums but not easy to do those lines!

Have you done a piece on vaccines as yet? Thank you so much!

This is a beautiful tribute to Ishika. I really enjoyed reading your poem and everything was very good. I like the line where the "night owl watches', Manatita,

Blessings!

Thank you,

Chitrangada ji.

Yes. I wanted to welcome her. My pieces are written according to moods. Occasionally I make them worldly then change them into spiritual gems.

I did about 15 for Guru Puja Day recently. Thank you so much!
