Ode to Music, The Language of The Soul. To Phyllis Doyle Burns by Manatita
From one loving Bard to another, in appreciation of her aesthetic, sublime, lofty and poetic works of both prose and poems. Much peace.
Come! Come! O melody of the constellations,
Let me lose myself in trance,
A drunken stupor in the rhapsody of Thy bliss.
Chanting, “Rama Da SA, SA Say So Hung,”
I lose myself in Your grandeur,
Inebriated in the zenith of Your Delight.
Cute Narada, the mystery of thy eloquent flute;
The inner majesty of your celestial clarion,
Has left my speech unspoken; my tongue still.
My Soul dances to the soft winds
Of your inner rhythm;
I feel adorned by the benevolence
Of the illustrious Ones.
Sweet Kristos, Nanak, Krishna, Buddha …
Beckon me to the Light of the Beyond.
This Spirit resonates to the inner harmony;
The sheer rapture of Thy magic;
I whirl in ecstatic delight.
“Satnam … satnam … satnamji,
Waheguru … Waheguru … Waheguruji.”
Here on this ethereal couch of nectar sweet,
I waltz and sing; dance with the supernal wine
Of “Ram nam … Mere Prabhu … Jai Lord!”
Inebriated, I lose myself in Delight.
Awakened and glowing with the fire of enchantment,
I repose in the firmament of the Great Unknown.
Sweet music, Your Light is a comfort in the shadows,
A beacon on the Path of Love.
You fill me with the mystery of Your Word,
A transforming Manual for eternal Peace.
As You enfold me with Your Life-force,
Let us tango together in Peace Supreme:
“Guru Dev … Guru Dev … namo!”
“Salutations, O Great One … Salutations … !”

A Meditation of Music For The Soul
The Ethereal Sound
Music is a universal language. The music that stirs and elevates the Soul, is a necessary and life-changing music. It intoxicates the Spirit, and the devotee feels like being drunk or in a wonderfully enthralling trance of peace, Light and joy.
The mystic element of the inner Sound, resonates and vibrates in the cosmos; the Word filling the heart with joy, thrilling the Soul with ecstasy, and the devotee whirls, cries and dances with an indescribable happiness he's barely able to sustain. Let us praise our Lord for His Peace and glory. Satnam ...Jai Guru, Jai, jai Ram!
