Wisdom from the Master

"When peace is multiplied,

Truth is multiplied.

When Truth is multiplied,

Love is multiplied.

When Love is multiplied, God is multiplied."- Sri Chinmoy


This River of Peace

My struggles are buried in eternity,

Yet my dreams are a snow-white bird –

A soaring eagle --emptying this memory

Of its longing, to place it all at the feet of Love.

Whenever You enter this Heart of mines,

The light zephyrs toast to my honour. Even

The scent of lavenders, whispers Your name,

While sunflowers dance in the distant meadows.

Your sweet wine is scribbled, on the eloquent cadences

Of Lovers. Telling of ballads that sob and cry, they

Quicken my breath; bring tears of serenity to the soul.

Light shines in the darkness; yet it is You who directs my Spirit.

Tales of Your smile intoxicates me, like bedtime

Stories, reaching for the moonlight. I try to unpeel them,

To gaze at the lustre of Thy lips, paint kisses on their

Crimson aura, calling my Heart, to Your celestial banquet.

O Love, O beauty non-pareil, flood my core with

Perennial nectar; help me to enter this river of Peace.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 18th March, 2021


Wisdom from the Master

"Victory means temporary peace,

But Peace is eternity's victory." - Sri Chinmoy

"Peace is not the absence of war,

Peace is the presence of Love, harmony and oneness." - Sri Chinmoy


Wisdom from the Master

My Lord does not ask me,

For my mind's brilliance;

He only asks me, for my Hearts radiance." - Sri Chinmoy

"God descends from above,

To treasure my Heart

And not my house."- Sri Chinmoy
