Wisdom From The Master

"I depend on You.

Your Feet of Truth always shelter me.

Truth is my Eternity's only achievement.

In my words and deeds,

May the Charioteer of Truth who carries me,

Drive His Truth-chariot to the Reality unknown." -Sri Chinmoy

Swans glide eloquently in the beauty of the Light


Swans Glide Elegantly, on a Serene Lake

The rays of Light keep shining,

In the illustrious garden of each soul.

No one is truly fettered by their chains,

Just simply dealing, with its own journey.

Look at the rose, it’s full of thorns,

Yet holds my gaze, with its immaculate beauty.

Isn’t the peace of solitude experienced

Even in the darkest night?

My friends, the fog that lingers in our struggle,

Like dark clouds, Is only a temporary shadow.

It Is no match for the Love that blossoms,

In the sacred tabernacle of the Spirit!

Lantern says: "The lashing of waves will ultimately subside;

Swans glide elegantly, on a serene lake."

Awakening The Inner Light


This Great Delusion

O Love, I take what You’ve given, to be my own.

Deep down in the valley of self-delusion,

I say ‘me’ and ‘mines’; ‘possess’, or be ‘possessed.’

So much bargaining, my Sweetheart!

But doesn’t everything belong to You?

I have forgotten this sacred secret.

My attachments and my ownerships,

Are but temporal loans from Thy abode --

Necessary tools for my experiences.

Who owns what? Can rain water drink its showers?

Sea water serenades the pearl, which

May tomorrow lie, in the rich man’s house.

Lantern knows that he is the Light of Lights,

Experiencing these shadows. O my Beautiful One, Come!

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 16th September, 2018

*Awakening The Inner Light*


Wisdom From the Master

"Lord, let us fulfill

Our respective roles.

You be my decision-maker in Heaven

And let me be

Your best perfection-builder on Earth."

We are God's sacred lamps


Light ... more Light
