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

Wisdom from Sri Chinmoy

"There is only one God, and that God is God the Love. This God does not punish us. This God is constantly shaping us in His own way. It is He who is the Doer, it is He who is the Action, and it is He who is the Enjoyer, both in the action and in the result."


The scholar dyes the scriptures, woven

In the colours of self-importance.

As such he knows the sweetness of Awakening,

Only through learning and intellect –

Naught but an authority on words.

"O would-be-swimmer", said the Seer.

“How can I best serve you, when

The mind is afraid of the ocean?

One knows the path of the eagle, as its wings

Flap, while soaring the indigo vastness.

Not having tasted the wisdom, of the

Fountain within, shall I call you a swimmer?

Why should I listen to a video,

In a language that I cannot interpret?

Aye, my friend, one day we’ll grow old and die.

Even as the fire needs the fuel,

So does the yearning of a hungry Heart,

For the inner experience of Light. Arise!

Strip bare the curtains,

From the temple of the sun.

Call! She’ll respond from within,

Like the mother does for her children.

I am a servant of the intensity of yearning;

Nothing belongs to me; all my shadows and

My ignorance, are but a token of Her mercy.

If I have not tasted mangoes,

Can I truly know the state called ‘sweet’?

Love has merged everything,

In the intimacy of Its own weaving;

Wisdom dances, in the tabernacle of the soul."

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 23rd December, 2018


Wisdom of Hafiz

"I caught the happy virus last night,

when I was out singing beneath the stars.

It is remarkably contagious,

So kiss me." -Hafiz


Wisdom from the Master

"A child feels his mother has all the power in the world. When he is afraid of anything, he runs to his mother because he knows that his mother has utmost affection for him. You are a spiritual child of God, so when you are attacked by any kind of fear, immediately try to run toward the sweet Supreme, who is all Compassion, all Love, all Blessings." -Sri Chinmoy
