Meadow of Celestial Light. With Love to you, William Leverne

Sri Chinmoy Bhajan Singers

She came suddenly, like Grace,

And I retreated into Silence.

The waft of chrysanthemums,

In this elegant alcove of celestial charm;

Touched my Spirit sweetly.

The eloquence and rhythms of the Bhajan Singers,

So enchanting to behold,

Evoked memories, of a serene past.

Slowly I began to absorb the grandeur of a Soul,

immersed in the grip, of a fever of joyfulness.

I lay dazed and stunned,

Drunk from that one immortal kiss,

That left my heart aflame and breath suspended.

My core filled with an immortal Love,

Radiating the Joy of Harmony.



Here on this hardened bench, where we first encountered,

I feel a sweet inner embrace of Light,

And hear the melody of nightingales.

I inhale a rhapsody of resonance so powerful,

That I bathe in a flood of Delight.

Come! Come! O Moon! O Stars!

O Friends of the Cosmos wide.

Today my Heart desires everyone!

Wrap me in the sweet Nectar of Your loving Fire,

And toss my raiment’s to the clouds.

      Chuckle, chuckle. Never heard that one: 'nectar from the trumpet vine.' Cool. Many thanks, Deb. Loving thoughts.

      This flowed as smooth as the nectar from the trumpet vine. Let me catch another ride on the back of a hummingbird for more sustenance.

      He he. Cool. Let's meditate together, and I'll send you some loving vibes. Today is my 33rd anniversary of meditation. I would love to do something on Gratitude, but I'm too tired. Let us see. Loving appreciations for your touching sentiments, Ruby. Joy and Light.

      Yes, Swalia. It's so marvellous to have someone with that kind of experience. This poem is a literal spiritual experience while on pilgrimage in NY recently, and yes the presence of Bhajan Singers!

      Thank you for your loving sentiment. Hari Om!

      "The eloquence and rhythms of the Bhajan Singers,

      So enchanting to behold"

      These lines transported me back to satsang in ashram in presence of my Guru!

      Beautiful poem!

      I feel honoured by your return, Brother. You were and are very kind to me. In this game of life, giving and receiving is without parallel, God needs us, and we need him. The child needs its parents, and the parents need the child.

      The microcosm and the macrocosm are all One entity. It is in this Light that I appreciate you so much, my brother. Loving thoughts.

      What can I say, My Dear, Shauna.

      Such sweet sentiments expressed here! Pioneers are very significant people in God's eye, for they have paved the way for us to have a better, more improved life.

      I trust you know that you're already in my Heart. I extend a warm embrace to you and wishing you a joyful and abundant weekend. Hari Om! (Kind of like 'Alleluyia!' Or 'All Praise be to God!) Perhaps you already know. Peace.-Manatita

      This is a wonderful tribute to Bill, Manatita. He brings the past to life, giving us a glimpse of how it was to build and thrive in the 1800's.

      Your words and photos are amazing!
