“The most beautiful thing on Earth, is man’s gratitude to the Supreme, to the divinity in humanity. This is the beauty unparalleled, and it will remain so throughout eternity. – Sri Chinmoy.

My Sweet Dearly Beloved Guruji, I thank you, for I am all Yours, within and without. I garner Your fragrances, and cascade then in the Universal beauty of Your Heart: Mother Earth.

I thank you, Oh Absolute, for out of Your Silence, You have descended into Sound and gave me life.

I thankYou, my Beloved Lord Supreme, for out of Your furnace of Love, You have moulded me into a beautiful vase.

I thank You, Oh Great One, for You have given me the capacity to be of soulful service to humanity.

Oh my Humility-Friend, you tug at my ego, and like the yielding tree, I bow in worship and pranam at Your feet. For this I thank you.

I thank You Life, for your myriad expressions; your manifestations of excellence; of supreme beauty.

I thank you God, for all my Ignorance; for the molten rock of transformation called Grace, that has chiselled away unconditionally, to burn my impediments of millennia.

Oh! How sweet Thy Love, the bliss that pulls me forcefully from my quagmire of delusions, to Your abode of Celestial Light. For this I am all gratitude.

I thank you, oh Christ. I am but a speck of dust, and yet, You have chosen me to be a co-worker in Your cause of tolerance and forgiveness.

I thank You, oh Krishna, for Your sweet Love and wisdom dances with the petals inside my heart.

I thank You, Oh Buddha, for a heart that bled and sacrificed, even for animals.

The inner Lotus of The Heart

Give thanks and praise

I thank you Hub Pages, for you have given me the opportunity, to manifest my Father’s Light.

I thank you, my Hub Pages Friends, for out of your loving contributions, I have been inspired to reflect and improve on my inner empathy and outer service. I have walked in your Light, bathed in your sorrows and channelled your inspirations.

Salutations!! My parents, my family, my teachers ….

Finally, I thank myself, a lofty kernel in the Ocean of the Unknown.

-Manatita, (Bard of Solace), 6th September, 2014.

      Thank You, Bro.

      Have a great Saturday. Like football? Which is your Team?

      Hi Ann,

      You've forced me to reflect here and perhaps I agree with you. Many of my poems are lofty, profound, sublime, yes, but perhaps this is my most sacred. It most certainly was enhanced in my morning meditation.

      So glad you found this. A great weekend to you and yours. Love and Light.
