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

"The quality of mercy is not strain'd,

It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven...

It is twice blessed:

It blesseth him that gives and him that takes." -Shakespeare, (The Merchant of Venice)."


Your White Clouds of Fire Burns Within

"Come! My cute firefly, let us be like twinkling stars,

Whirling and dancing in indigo rays,

On the immeasurable sweetness of the soul.

Let my shimmering Light illumine the Heart,

Whispering illustrious chords of Love,

To arouse the sweet rhapsody of the Spirit.

" I'm so drunk, my Beloved,

What is this intoxicant of which You speak?"

" Let me part your lips wide open;

Waltz on the rhythm of thy breath.

I wish to flood your being with kisses,

So thy core trembles in the ecstasy of Bliss."

"Come! My Queen. Let your white clouds of fire burn within,

To satiate the intensity of my longing."

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier.

Wisdom-Quotes from Sri Chinmoy

"Concern, compassion, love: these are three rungs in one ladder." Sri Chinmoy

" Compassion is far beyond the domain of all the spiritual life, compassion is nothing other than oneness itself. Compassion does not mean a sense of pity. Compassion is the expansion of what one eternally is.”

"Grace is universal. Like rain, everybody can receive it. Compassion is like a magnet which is pointed at only some individuals. Compassion is more intense than Grace. That is why I use the term Compassion much more in our philosophy. In the case of true spiritual seekers, Compassion is much more important." -Sri Chinmoy


Quote from the Master

"...if there is love, then there is concern; and if there is concern, then there is compassion. It is like the seed, the plant and the flower or fruit. This moment love can play the role of the seed, and then from the seed comes the tree, which is concern. Then from the concern-tree comes the compassion-fruit, which flowers into oneness." -Sri Chinmoy
