“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

Marcel Proust

I am grateful ...

I go to the world of sleep and beyond, while my Beloved shields me, with the passion of burning Love.

I am grateful …

Daily I rise to a virgin dawn, feel the prana in my Spirit; serve the various manifestations of Truth’s beauty and God’s Light.

I am grateful …

I can smell the fragrances of rhododendrons; see the sacrifices of Mother Earth, and acknowledge the unconditional brilliance of the Sun.

I am grateful …

My Mother’s sacrifice was unparalleled, and I grew in Joy and inner Delight.

I am grateful …

For I am not usually found wanting, neither for the body’s replenishments, service to others or love of Him.

I am grateful …

For He gave me the capacity to take up writing; to inspire my brothers and sisters: Mankind.

I am grateful …

For all my Hubber Friends, acquaintances and managerial staff, for you gave me the opportunity to manifest God’s visions; His dreams; to awaken the inner beauty of the Heart.

I am grateful …

Through His Grace, I am arriving at the sunset of an old Year, to be replaced by the dawn of a new Sunrise.

Finally, I remain eternally grateful to the Absolute, to my Master Teacher Sri Chinmoy; for all that I am and ever will be.

Happy Christmas, my Friends! May the birth of a New and promising Year 2015, bring us all abiding peace. OM Shanti!

-Manatita, 18th decenber, 2014.

My Gratitude Flames


Thorns die,
Roses live.
Hate dies,
Love lives.
Desire dies,
Aspiration lives.
The human in me dies,
The divine in me lives.

My gratitude-flames
In the Heart of God
Never shall die.
Eternally they breathe,
Eternally they sport,
Eternally they manifest
The Supreme,
My Supreme.

- Sri Chinmoy

Gratitude, the Life-breath of God

      The blessings in our lives remain the simplest, yet the most important.

      I agree Bro.

      So many people are telling me both here and in my Centre and Sufi evenings. I would like to compile a book of poetry. So much to do, so little time! The same old story. How do you like the Titles: Blossoms of The Heart or Raindrops From Heaven? In Light and Love.

      Yes, I'm down in Somerset. Bit grey and dreary but not so cold today. I think Christmas is supposed to be dryer and crisper so that's good! :)

      All good graces to you and family as usual. I believe that you are here with me in the UK and share the cold, right? :)

      I am grateful to your mom. How else would I have met you? We would not have had our sweet little fights then. He he. An opportunity to raise my consciousness, the only way for me, to heal the form.

      Send me some sunshine and a little music here in London.

      Thanks Sis. Much love and Light; happiness and an abundance of good will for now, tomorrow and always. Merry Christmas!!

      Well, Miz,

      I see you as a beautiful Soul also. I'm very happy to have made your day, and I am grateful for your sincere and loving wishes.

      Nimitta matram .. Nimita Matram Bhava, Savyasachin. (I am a mere instrument). We are all His instruments .. we manifest in different ways, the same one Source. But I'm confident that you know this.

      I feel inspired by your inner beauty, and wish you God's peace. Salaam!

      P.s. I believe that it was you who chose the 'Absolute'. It is the most fundamental teaching of all great Teachers. You're very wise.

      Thanks again, Kiss and Tales.

      In my world, Love is the revelation of life and life is a manifestation of this Love. Again, Love is inner beauty and this beauty expresses itself in what you see. God is the supreme beauty.

      What I feel comes essentially from the inner beauty, and then I glorify this inner Source through expression and art. Again, the Supreme is the supreme artist. So all flow from my inner Shrine and percolates the outer realm of appearances. There is no dichotomy. The pictures are an outer extension of the inner messages and images I see and feel. In Love and Light.
