Wisdom from the Master

"Be universal in your love. You will see the universe to be the picture of your own being."- Sri Chinmoy

"Gratitude is the sweetest thing in a seeker's life - in all human life. If there is gratitude in your Heart, then there will be tremendous sweetness in your eyes." - Sri Chinmoy

Wisdom from Sri Chinmoy


Bathing in the Beauty of Your Delight

As twilight moonbeams, reveal twinkling stars,

The glow of Thy splendour, I do behold;

The morning’s rose, emits Your aromas,

Your grandeur and lustre, calms my sad soul.

Flooded I was, with a river of tears,

Till a loving concern, came from Your Heart.

My painful torment, did last many years,

But You filled me with Love, ne’er to depart.

Oh for the tulips, petunias, lilies,

Nature’s rhythms, awaken the ‘possum.

Wrens and hummingbirds, chanting Your glories,

Buds emit wafts, while lavenders blossom.

You bathe me in beauty, making me whole.

And embody Delight, deep in my soul.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 11th March, 2017


Just Live in the Moment

Pretty white lily that waltzes so gay,

Charisma and glamour in ev’ry way.

Speaks only in silence with little to say,

Yet adorned in allure her garments lay.

She dances with zephyrs within the grove,

Free, unassuming, she restfully sleeps.

“Worry,” said Lily, ‘bout your treasure trove?”

I toil not, never sow, yet I always reaps.

As the Master nourishes; clothes me, while,

I radiantly smile, fear not tomorrow.

I inhale the cool air and swing with style,

Not a tear or strife; not any sorrow.

I urge that you end this wearisome stress,

Just live in the ‘now’; let Love do the rest.

The Dawn

Dawn is restorative; globally loved,

Iridescence of lustre from the night.

Rejuvenates life and challenges shoved,

Replaces the darkness with newness-Light.

I struggle and sweat each moment I see,

With glamour and demons, pleasures and pain.

My curative friend invigorates me,

In the twilight of morning’s sweet refrain.

The lustrous morn, is a beacon of hope,

O dawn, your flowing resonance I feel.

Augmenting the energy of my scope;

Envisioning beams of tomorrow’s thrill.

Into the Citadel, of my Heart’s gongs,

You flood me with chords of redolent songs.
