Sri Chinmoy Sings Happy Birthday
"Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy, happy, happy birthday!
We love your soul’s rainbow-dream promise-play." -Sri Chinmoy.
Sweet womb, O birth of eloquence!
A thousand Gratitude's, to thy sacred sanctity of plenitude.
For out of life's yearning for fulfilment; its superlative quest,
Springs forth from your hallowed sanctum, a most enchanting Pearl!
Thy merits adorn her with their beauty; weave their laughter,
Into a life of elegance and charm.
Sweet crested Jewel, a mother's love and fortitude,
Her quintessential sacrifice,
Calligraphed their way into your pristine Heart.
A father's joy and pride, life skills and concern,
Danced with Light, way into a gem of soulfulness.
O Beloved, the minstrels touch thy soul from Heaven,
With a sweet melody of enchanting rhythms;
Sri Krishna’s lofty cadences, cascaded splendour in thy Soul.

Your Love Dancing Sweetly in My Soul
Come, my Darling!
Bring me Your vermilion roses,
To shape a diamond in my Heart.
You’re my inner Queen!
Today I wish to crown You,
With the crest of snowflakes falling gently,
Like raindrops waltzing upon the wind.
Ah! You’re sweetly whispering my name!
Thy golden voice resonates,
With the eloquence of Beethoven’s symphonies.
I close my eyes; I hear you calling me: “Come! Come!”
Your magical tones singing a captivating whisper:
“I’m here …here …here …”
I see a dazzling Light within my Heart.
Alas! This epitome of Delight vanishes …too soon.
I endeavour to catch You; to snatch just one glance,
To nourish this hunger of longing,
Burning an unyielding flame in my Essence-Core.
Let me blend into Your charismatic splendour,
As You play your game of ‘Hide and Seek,’
Your Love dancing sweetly in my Soul.

Sri Chinmoy's song
525. My birthday song
“I plan to soar, I plan to roar.
The bird in me will teach me how to soar.

Sri Chinmoy on Birthdays
“Each birthday is a new awakening. Each birthday is a new hope. Each birthday is a new promise. Each birthday is a new fulfilment …
Each birthday is a tune, a melody of the universal music. Each individual is also a melody of the universal music. The seeker grows and glows in his music, which he can hear with his soulful ears. The very presence of the soul-child inside us is what grants us a taste of the universal music. The soul needs to climb like music, soulful music. The soul, when it climbs, knows no boundaries, no religious barriers, no political boundaries. It is all freedom, freedom within and freedom without.
Each birthday is a petal of a flower. The flower, petal by petal, blossoms and then it is ready to be placed at the inner shrine in the aspiring heart....
Sri Chinmoy on Birthdays, (continued)
A thought indicates a new birthday. An iota of will indicates a new birthday. An upward movement indicates a new birthday. At every moment, whether we look within or without, we celebrate the birthday of our oneness with God, the Creator of the entire universe. When we look at something, we become one with it. On a birthday we feel our inseparable oneness with the expansion of a new light, a light that will ultimately cover the length and breadth of the world.
The real birthday does not come only once a year. The real birthday is the birth of each second in a seeker's life. An aspiring second in the seeker's heart is the real birthday. At every moment, God the Author of all good celebrates the seeker's birthday. As seekers we have to be consciously aware of something divine and supreme within us. What this divine and supreme thing is, is our promise to humanity and our promise to divinity. The transformation of humanity's face is our soul's promise to humanity and the manifestation of divinity's light here on earth is our soul's promise to divinity...
What's a Birthday to You?
