Worship of Mammon


Die! Die! O Lantern,

Die to the thoughts that enslave you –

To the tapestry woven in fine silk --,

On the myriad tablets of Mother Earth.

Come! Enter the Tabernacle of thy Queen,

Bringing not gold and raiment,

Bu the Heart’s hunger, to be free.

Die! Die to the darkness.

What else is sin and Shaitan,

If not thorns,

Paving the way to the realm of roses?

Dive! Dive to the peerless ocean;

Bring forth the Pearl of priceless beauty,

Shining in thy core.



I am your Flower-Garden;

You are My precious fragrance,

Wafting an unparalleled sweetness,

Into this candle of the mundane.

Die! Die to the clamour …;

To the din of earthly strife.

Waltz to My abode in sweet surrender;

I shall welcome you HOME.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted, 1st, May, 2017.

Realm of Roses

My mind and my unsatisfied greed." - Sri Chinmoy.

Greed or enslavement


Quote from a Seer

"Be universal in your Love,

You will see the universe to be a picture of your own being." - Sri Chinmoy



Why do we cling to shadows?

      Really meaningful poetic thoughts. Let us all strive to come out of the shadows into the light of faith.

      Thanks Bro.

      Yes, many are, but this one I've placed out there in the world. I do that sometimes. I mix spice and sugar. Lol. Thank you!!

      Yes, Dee. Necessary, perhaps, but painfully so. Lol. Thank you!!

      Ah, Ruby,

      That sweet happiness of yours, eh? I'm jealous. (chuckle)

      We have frailties, all right. After 35 years of prayer and meditation, I still have some work to do. Still, I'm getting there. I can see the river Jordan and have sneaked a peep over the mountain top. Ha ha. It makes one drunk with Love. Gratitude ... much.

      Every once in a while my mind returns to unhappy days, but I am quick to remember the happiness I now have. We are human with human frailties. Thank goodness for your wonderful words of encouragement and beauty...

      Those thorns do get in the way of our waltz. Thanks for paving the path with light and fragrance. No end to beautiful imagery in your poetry.
