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


For Your Exquisite, Aesthetic and Ethereal Poetry

Neither this, nor that …

Not in the East or West; and no,

You will not find Me in Separation, in boxes—

Those narrow coffins that restrict man’s Spirit;

Suffocates the rhythms of his Joy.

My words speak of the Liberty of the Soul—

This quintessence of the Unspoken,

That some call LOVE.

Make serene the buzzing! Be tranquil!

Allow this speechless Flame,

To burn to cinder the burden of your sorrows;

Go beyond commotion, to the opulence of the Heart.

Can you hear the Silent Symphony? Listen!!

Do you feel the golden Rhapsody? Dance!!!

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted. 15th October, 2015.

      There are silent symphonies all around us. The brilliance of an awakening sunriese, the quiet rest of nightfall, and the shimmering stars lighting our way out of the darkness. All are reasons to dance the Joy of Life.

      A beautiful sentiment Rasma, from a truly awesome poet to two fellow brother/sister poets here. This makes it even more special. Praise be!

      You will definitely Dance one day. His Love is too selfless and unconditional. Why will He hide from you? Just playing a temporary Game.

      Increase your Sadhana (spiritual practice), continue to serve selflessly. Service expands the Heart and will make you receptive to the Higher Light.

      Sit in silence for a bit longer every day. Quieten the mind. Feel that you are His and His alone. Thank you, thank you ... Jai Lord!

      Yes, She is Par Excellence, a sublime poet!

      I am essentially a God-Lover, a servant. All flow from this Kernel. I am a conscious instrument of Something Higher.

      God is the Supreme Artist, and poetry, in the most effective sense of the word, is a sublime or lofty Truth; an inimitable Light of the Divine.

      Much Gratitude and Joy to you, my Friend Ruby.

      'Can you hear the Silent Symphony? Listen!!'

      I never knew the language of silence until I experienced it. I remember the first time I was in silence for three days during a spiritual retreat.That was when I came to know that silence is so potent and so blissful.

      This poem reminded me of Rumi! Beautiful!

      Yes, let's dance. Drunk with the celestial wine of all God-lovers, while swaying with the heart-beat of the Cosmos, like radiant lamps. Lots of Love ...

      Chuckle, chuckle ...

      I have always said that you are a master of psychology in more ways than one. But I really loved you coming out here, Bill. I guess you know that I'm a good buddy.

      Yes, she's pretty good, Bro. Reminds me of myself, somewhat. Now I fly to the esoteric world and my poems are cloaked and soaked in spiritual experiences. I prefer it that way. Still, I am on record as saying that Nellieanna and Audrey are the closest that I've seen to my work, while being essentially different. Surabhi and a handle of others are now close also.

      Thank you so much Bro, you sentiments expressed meant a lot to me and I treasure your loving Heart the most. Much Peace.
