Come let us dance, my Beloved, come let us dance.

The sweet strings of Your inner melody pours forth,

Flowing with the eloquence of Sri Krishna’s flute.

Why not celebrate the advent of this butterfly,

Emerging from its cocoon,

In a halo of dazzling Light?


Come let us dance, my Beloved, come let us dance.

The immortal Phoenix calls us: “Come! Come!”

Let us soar beyond the vicissitudes of this sojourn,

To a realm of fiery Delight and sweet forgiveness.

Taking the pranams of my folded hands;

The endearing yielding of this frame, at Your charming feet!


Today the whistling willow enchants my Soul.

The light winds from its merry leaves,

Sings a Sonata so joyfully ecstatic,

That I swoon as one inebriated,

Calling out Thy name, O Chinmoy!

Do embrace this forlorn Heart.

You ask me if I Love You.

Day and night the nightingales within my very Essence,

Adulate and sing of Thy gracefulness and splendour.

Ah! But for a thousand kisses of Your Delight;

A walk through the portals of a fiery Hades,

Languishing for Your deathless nectar, while calling out Thy name!


Come let us dance, my Beloved, come let us dance.

What else can I give of a Heart on Fire,

Dreaming of the undreamable?

The crimson-red tint of burning blood,

Drips from a memory so full of excellence!

Quintessentially sacrificial, for the glory of Thy name.


Come let us dance, my Beloved, come let us dance.

This earth is nourished and lives,

By Your sweet smile in the Temple of the sun.

How much more worthy is Thy Love,

Without which, I feel like one shattered,

Into the fragments of ten thousand pieces.


Come let us dance, my Beloved, come let us dance …

      Now I really like this one! A silent prayer... very pious. When we read poems like these, the heart becomes soft and the Soul dances to the Divine music of the Supreme. Cool.

      You know Surabhi, there are so many beautiful things that drew you to me! You're creative, talented ...a little emotional ...above all magnanimous, generous, large-hearted and very spiritual. Your sense of empathy and concern as well as devotion to parents and friends is unique and here you are very humble, even when you do not need to be.

      What can I say? Endless Love.

      Manatita, it's your humbleness to say so. Just a simple girl, buddy. Gratitude to the Law of Supreme; the law of attraction.

      Today was a day of dance. A piper was at the lake, and I saw the Canada Geese head toward him, eighty strong. The Bald Eagle came in surrounded by Turkey Vultures, and the Mourning Doves called in time to the beat of each song. Can you imagine such beauty?
