Wisdom from the Master

"God's Love is for everybody. It is like the sun. A person has only to keep open the window of his heart to receive divine Love. When God's Love takes an intimate form, it is called Compassion. This Compassion is the most powerful attribute, the most significant attribute of the Supreme." -Sri Chinmoy


I Just Need to Hold You my Sweet

“Look at the moon when you miss Me,

Their crimson hue, will heal your scars.

Gaze deep into the lure of heaven,

The sound of My flute will resonate within.”

“I just need to hold You, my Sweet.

No need to drink of this bewildering wine.

It is enough that I sit at Thy feet, invited;

Gaze deep into the grandeur of Thy Light.

Molded in the agony of tears,

I wish only to touch You, to feel

The intimacy of Thy kisses, tenderly

Enhancing this breath of breaths.”

“Look at the stars when you miss Me,

Their enchanting twinkle, will dance

With the fireflies of thine Heart,

Pour balms into the wounds of thy longing.”

“O Love, carve the arrow of remembrance within,

So that I follow You like a dog does its master,

Constantly wagging its tail; glued with

The lamp of devotion in its core.”

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 27th December, 2018.


O Love, my Love, Come!

O Love, my Love, my own sweet Dove;

The Breath of Breaths, below, above.

When in ignorance I did fall,

You came in answer to my call.

Intoxicated I became,

Like children calling Mother’s name.

I drank my Lover’s vineyard bright,

Sweet wine of heaven, Love's Delight.

For You are ALL and ALL are You,

Erased desire; set me free.

Your minstrels play sweet melodies,

Inside my Soul, such rhapsodies!

Now drunk and reeling like a kite,

Soaked in the wine of Love’s own Light.

-Manatita, 24th December, 2018.


Wisdom from the Master

"Love can stay even with ignorance, but Compassion will not. Compassion has to be successful; otherwise it may be withdrawn. It will stay for a few seconds, or for a few minutes or a few years; but it has to send a report to the highest Authority and say whether it has been successful or not." -Sri Chinmoy
