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!!
