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
