Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


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.”

“Jai Lord!”

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 … !”

  • Manatita (Bard of Solace) ©Copyrighted. 31st July, 2014.


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!

Peace, Bliss, Happiness

      Yes, music can take many forms, especially the Song of the Animals, which luckily, I experience each day, and THAT dear bard, keeps me well and happy. A very nice piece that commemorates the basic of needs.

      Thank you so much, Phyllis. I truly appreciate this and I look forward to seeing the context in which you have used Lantern Carrier.

      I have already used it in An Intonation of Love. Whatever blessings that God has given me, I also lovingly offer to you. I trust you have a pleasant Sunday evening, by His Grace.

      Manatita, I was revising my old hub (Spirituality and the Lantern Carrier) and when looking for an appropriate book I found yours, 'My Guru'. I am so pleased to include it on my hub and will be ordering the book.

      Oh, my ... what beauty expressed in your words of serenity and peace to Phyllis. I also loved reading the back and forth comments and Phyllis' amazing poem back to you! She is a gifted poet as well. I will have to visit her side of HP Town.

      Voted up and more and away

      Have a blessed and peaceful weekend

      I am amazed you asked. Could I do anything else? When it's done, I'll send you the draft then act accordingly. Shalom!

      You may, with my blessings, take the lantern carrier line, Manatita. I have a hub somewhere, written long ago, about the Lantern Carrier. The Lantern Carrier is part of my spiritual teachings to others and it belongs to you also because you feel it in your heart. Yes, do use it in a future poem. For you to frame and hang up my poem to you is a gift of joy for me. I will do the same with your poem to me if it pleases you. Bless you. I, too, am about to enter into my late evening meditation. Peace ...

      A poem of exquisite beauty, and before I go any further, can I steal the 'lantern carrier' line? I can use it in some way in a future poem.

      So you are the first, sweet Phyllis. I have been framing and decorating poems for people in my meditation Centre for years! They always say to me, "Who is going to do one for you?" They feel that my poem is of such sublimity that they are scared to try or fail. Still, you dared and it's beautiful!

      I will decorate this noble contribution of Love with Microsoft word, and then frame same and hang it up, if that's ok with you.

      I am still in meditation. I returned here to change to another sacred chant. So I will now continue. May we all value this unique contribution from this loving Spirit of yours. Higher blessings.

      Bard of Esoteric Poetry -To Manatita from Phyllis Doyle

      Dear prophet of inner peace and beauty, to you I dedicate this poem.

      Deep Peace Within ~

      With fiery passion born of love and deep peace within

      The loving Bard of esoteric poetry journeys through life

      Touching the hearts and souls of those who hear and see

      Far beyond the ordinary where true beauty can be found

      Deep within where the soul dwells in divine splendor

      Bliss is the name of the prose he gifts to others

      With no thought other than love of the aesthetic

      and our potential to eternally grow in spirit

      His faith in humanity, his faith in his God

      There you find him

      Like a lantern carrier, he brings light to the dark corners

      Wherein lie the seeds of hopelessness and no peace

      Light to open the heart and allow seeds of love to grow and spawn more love

      The peace we so need we find by his lantern which allows us to look deeper within our Self

      Gifted with Divine Grace does he reach out with words of beauty

      To touch the soul with inspiration and enlightenment

      Poetry of divine love comes from within

      His soulful words drift and settle in the hearts that need them

      He gives comfort to the lonely, hope to the lost

      The knowledge of love divine to those who so need love

      His love for all of Nature and all that is beautiful

      Emanates from his soul, shines through his eyes

      I surround myself with prophets of peace and divine love

      Manatita, you are a gift to the hope of the world

      May you always walk in peace and harmony, beloved prophet

      Thank you so much, Phyllis, and for returning again. It is always good to re-visit as you can then appreciate what others write who may come after your initial visit.

      I am beginning to use a lot of these music in my morning and evening meditations. They are so beautiful and elevating for my Spirit! Loving thoughts.

      Thank you, Chitrangada. Always grateful for your loving contribution. Hari Om!

      Hi Bill, this is special to me, coming from one Wordsmith to another. Your prose is of supreme beauty and inspirational to many. Much love, Bro.
