It was about 19.55hrs that evening when She inwardly came …. Strong,

forceful, powerful …. She was as sudden and unexpected as a butterfly at night. Vaguely aware of a most sublime form of Mother Nature, I became absorbed in the shimmering rays of her mesmerising effects: red, blue, green, yellow …. a myriad of dazzlingly colourful spectrums of light shone before me, as the Grace of Love flooded my being, and I burst spontaneously into prayer:


“Long have I drifted in this alien land,

Like a seafarer on a rudderless ship.

My connection to You, oh my Beloved,

Has been broken like the ship’s rusty sails.

O Great One,

Fasten my Soul to your garments;

Flood my heart with your nectar-sweet,

And carry me to the immortal shores of the beyond.”

With this depth of soulfulness, and an infusion of inner radiance, the windows of my Soul opened to The Joy of Sweet Communion:



One with my Soul I’d love to be,

Where I can gaze enrapt in Thee.

Absorbed within celestial Light,

Or lose myself in bliss-delight.


This peace within Your inner realm,

This joy of love so sweet; so sure.

This boatman standing at the helm,

Immersed within a Golden Shore.


Oh Muse, do come with thrills galore,

Fill me with nectar to the core.

Dance deep within, with so much more,

Enchant my every atom-pore.


Take now my Spirit to the place,

Of zenith stillness, calm and bliss.

Adorn Your beauty to my face,

With Your immortal tender kiss.


And so I rest my Self in You,

Pranams, oh Stillness, I do bow.

Clothed in ambrosia through and through,

Absorbed in trance, to Love: to Thou.


So here I was, nature stood still, … the experience of beauty and peace from within was gradually taking hold. High up above me, I was vaguely aware of the cadences of life, as I gradually drifted further into the experience. My inner being was flooded with peace, tranquillity and love so forcefully, that it was a long time before I regained a conscious presence of the outer world. -Manatita7th June, 2013.

      You show deep insight. There are more of my poems and prose here with this depth. My book, My Guru, Sri Chinmoy: Life And Teachings, also has this. 3rd Chapter called Spiritual Experiences. Appreciate your sentiments. Peace.

      I like your last para.

      "So here I was, nature stood still, … the experience of beauty and peace from within was gradually taking hold. High up above me, I was vaguely aware of the cadences of life, as I gradually drifted further into the experience. My inner being was flooded with peace, tranquillity and love so forcefully, that it was a long time before I regained a conscious presence of the outer world."

      So peaceful. Write a little more of such experiences. I know it is difficult to put in words almost impossible still....

      You have a way of explaining the "beauty and peace from within".

      Voted up and awesome.

      You have an exceptional involvement with Mother Nature; or is it the God of Mother Nature? "My inner being was flooded with peace, tranquillity and love ." That the kind of result we all long for. Thanks for sharing.
