Wisdom from the Master

"Life is nothing but the expansion of love. We can cultivate divine love by entering into the Source. The Source is God, who is all Love." -Sri Chinmoy

"There is no fundamental difference between one religion and another, because each religion embodies the ultimate Truth. Each religion is right, absolutely right, because each religion conveys the message of Truth in its own way." - Sri Chinmoy

In This Land Of Supernal Beauty

Many come here, simply to gaze upon the scarlet moon.

The fire of this realm is so enthralling, that their

Stare remains transfixed and tongues mute.

I die daily, to the pangs of the mundane,

And dine voraciously, at the banquet of these Lovers.


In this land of supernal beauty, each kiss is a drunkenness

Of amnesia. The pale world fades; a new Light emerges

With the dawn. In my hallucinations, I hear the voice of

Silence whispering, in the temple of the sun: Come! Come!

My eagle-bird soars gracefully, pulling at perennial rainbows.


Deep down in the valley of the meadow of Light,

The allure of the Brotherhood of yon heavenly Mansions,

Are beckoning me. Love’s Gardener opens the kaleidoscope,

Of an ever-enrichening splendour, and welcomes me Home.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 3rd November, 2019

Wisdom from the Master

“Truth is beauty. Beauty inspires a God-seeker to see God’s Face of eternal Beauty. Truth is peace. Peace inspires a God-seeker to feel God’s Heart of infinite Peace. Truth is power. Power inspires a God-seeker to watch God’s Eye of immortal Power. Truth is compassion. Compassion inspires a God-seeker to sit at God’s Feet of all-forgiving Compassion.." - Sri Chinmoy

Truth

The scales of justice swings, like a Libran Pendulum;

The same truth that frees me from my fears,

Has also imprisoned me with serious guilt.


The voice of Conscience whispers, but to what avail?

I need a receptive vessel to heed its call.

My mind’s weighed down with a truth,

Sitting on my shoulders like dead elephants.


Locked prison doors are meaningless to a soul,

Bathing in a river of ceaseless Love.

So too, wisdom defies the bars of logic,

To show that a truth told with bad intent,

Is worse than the lies that man invents.


I walked towards the Sunlit Path, Leaving the unillumined

Truths behind, in this ephemeral world of shadows.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 3rd November, 2019

Wisdom from the Master

"If we live in our oneness-heart, we will feel the essence of all religions which is the love of God. Forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, brotherhood and the feeling of oneness are the signs of a true religion." -Sri Chinmoy

"My life is only half full
When I receive.
My heart is completely full
Only when I give." - Sri Chinmoy

On Truth

When the snow falls, it sometimes begins like flakes, drifting in the atmosphere. The wind blows wherever Love takes it, carrying these divine messengers of heaven to the pollen, the stamen of flowers, the foliage … my stained glass windows.

The light flakes kisses my face and hugs me gently, intimately. Its healing effects sometimes exactly what I need in this noisy world of modern consumerism.

I am a spark of Spirit, no less than the flakes … the stars. Indeed, since I aspire to be God-like, then perhaps I'm their Master. Still, you would not necessarily know. Sometimes I'm fragile, vulnerable … susceptible to danger … to being squashed upon, like the flakes heralding snow.

Truth is often just as delicate, requiring wisdom-light, to illuminate its path. Be as wise as Solomon and as gentle as the snow. Manatita, 4th November, 2019

"The truth is not simply what you think it is; it is also the circumstances in which it is said, and to whom, why, and how it is said."

Václav Havel . 1936-2011 . Czech writer and dramatist, and politician

"The subconscious is ceaselessly murmuring, and it is by listening to these murmurs that one hears the truth."

Gaston Bachelard . 1884-1962 . French philosopher of science and literary critic . The poetics of the reverie
