Wisdom from the Master
"When I was like you, at your stage, unrealized, I thought and felt that my personal effort, was 99% and God's Grace was 1%. No more than that. But my art of stupidity died, the moment Self-realisation took birth in me. I then, to my amazement, saw, felt and realized, that the grace of my merciful Lord, was 99%, and my feeble personal effort, was 1%..." - Sri Chinmoy
Sri Chinmoy in Contemplation
Wisdom From The Master
"...here my story does not come to an end, my children. Finally I realized, that this 1% of mine also, was my Supreme Father's unconditional concern for me. My children, you feel that God-realisation, is a struggling race, it is not true. God- realisation, is always a descending Grace." - Sri Chinmoy

A Song For my Beloved, Part Two
As the stars twinkle sweetly,
And the moon shines adoringly,
As the snow falls majestically,
And the wind rustles softly.
So too, I am immaculately woven from Thee.
As our paths did cross; Love shone from afar,
As Your Grace from within, did quicken my Soul.
As the morning rose, sings your enthralling sonata,
My lips have gone mute as raptures unfold.
Sweet tenderness, elegance, gentleness … care,
With what heavenly Gods can I you compare?
You’re loving, compassionate, selfless and strong,
With concern and empathy whenever I’m wrong.
My heart sings Your glories, all where, all where;
My mind, so delighted, goes without fear.
I feel in my core, that all’s loving and right,
And the time has arrived, to implore ‘the good fight’.
So pranams on my knees, with the best I can be,
My Beloved Supreme, I am all gratitude … to Thee.

Jesus, the Christ in Communion with the Father
Father's Day songs, by Sri Chinmoy
"Father's Day, Father's Day, Father's Day!
Begins my conscious cosmic play.
I shall not fail Your Compassion-Love.
I shall become Your fondest dove." - Sri Chinmoy
"O Saviour dear, You are so near.
O Lover kind, bind my Heart, bind.
O Father pure, I am all yours, sure." - Sri Chinmoy
"Father, O Father,
What do You do here in my Heart?"
"I dream my cosmic dream." - Sri Chinmoy
Poem from Sri Chinmoy
"Father's Day is great
At least once a year
Each father tells his children
That he really wants to equal the
Heavenly Father in Compassion and Concern." - Sri Chinmoy
The Bewilderment of an Effulgent Light
The Ceaseless Sugar of Thy Lips
My God-tears drip, with endless longing,
A blinding Light in my uncomely darkness.
The wheels of Grace keep spinning; the
Genius of yin and yang prevails.
With each dip on the scales of Your pendulum,
You address my struggles, by taking the adversary out.
Coral embraces the womb of the sea,
Singing the songs of harmony. Serenity abides
On the bed of its chamber, spreading the Bliss
Of the Nazarene --of infinity’s Delight.
How can a dog not follow its Master?
Banqueting in the Heart of my Yearning,
You have quelled my demerits with endless loving;
I dine on sleepless sweetness, on the ceaseless sugar of Thy lips.
