The Satguru (God-man) Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa. One of the Greatest Seers of the 20th Century


With Love, all is a Wonder and a Miracle

The sweet scent of zephyrs, caught the

Earth laughing, as her jasmines and lavenders,

Unfurled their purple blossoms. The rose blushed,

Recounting her numerous tales of intimate secrets.

Within the orchard where we first encountered,

Sunset came smiling with the dusk. Alone with my Lover,

We listened to the willows whisper, to the fading sun. Now the

Nights speak of hopefulness, as stars dance with Andromeda.

A symphony of starlings, heralds the radiance of a

Golden dawn. I try to communicate, with the Light of Jannah,

Even as laziness runs from the duvets’ charm, enthusiasm

Becomes present in action; while zeal and vibrancy emerge from closets.

As a child, I spoke to the moon on starry nights. I

Enquired of the cute dog within her lustre; then of the old

Man's glint on her face, yet burdened by a bundle of wood.

She spoke of the heavy load she carried; the

Obedience necessary for the sake of the Beloved’s

Mystery. It was then that I understood the why’s of

Her having a dog, and the plight of the Elder’s burden.

With Love, all is of wonder and miracles. Didn’t I tell you?

Lovers are God’s Blood-vessels

Lovers are God’s blood-vessels.

From one cycle to another, they bleed

Again, and again; none but Love, can quench

The millennia of burning agony of their Hearts.

They hear sounds and see strange lights;

Walk on space in the darkness. They’re fed wine

Of a taste that inebriates them so quickly, that

They go into stupor, or laugh with the stars of heaven.

Lovers bleed once again when, hands outstretched,

They offer the sugarcane juice of Jannah (Paradise).

They’re chased out of cities and die on crosses too

Numerous to mention, speaking of a Light, most cannot see.

O man! Love is whispering at every moment, in the timeless

Energy of cosmic Light, asking its children for a tourniquet, called ‘Longing.’

Wisdom from the Master

"That which is necessary to reject, we reject,

That which is necessary to transform, we transform;

That which is necessary to transcend, we transcend.

In order to transcend, two things are necessary:

Personal effort and God's Grace." - Sri Chinmoy

Quote from Jalal Uddin Mohammed Rumi. The 13th Century Saint


Wisdom from the Master

"My Love of God, has no need for Heaven's Bliss.

For my Love of God Itself, is the Highest Bliss." - Sri Chinmoy


That Love again!!
