In Search of Love

I searched for enchantments,

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon,

Came to me and calmed my mind.

I searched for majesty;

The grandeur of the Tajmahal,

Came to me and touched my heart.

I searched for power; I was embraced

By the effulgence of the rising sun.

I searched for Light; the luminosity

Of the moon enfolded me in rapture.

I searched for Love; my Beloved came and said:

“Take me, I’m yours.”

I remained speechless!

For how can I speak of the unspeakable?

Explain that which is awake in Silence,

In the magnificence of the Soul?

Yet the new-born radiates in its grandeur, without words,

Bringing tears and solace, to the hearts of many lovers.

Love is a furnace glowing in my Core.

Shimmering in Its lustre; caressing its many sojourners

Who seek life’s beauty

At Morn and Eve, the planets bow in adoration,

To Love’s sceptred lotuses, nourishing their Lights,

Beating the celestial drums of a mystic pulse,

Unfathomable to the minds perception.


Last evening, I pulled the curtain; looked at the setting sun.

So many songs of nightingales arose, simultaneously in my Heart!

Now I smell the breath of the ocean; inhale the fragrance of waves,

Which, like incense, seem to frolic, in their lavender and myrrh.

Mother Earth, on whose humility I tread daily,

Now adorns me in Love’s glory; my Soul’s a fire of Delight!

How I wish to touch the portals of a trillion lamps,

The radiant sweetness, of which my words are inadequate to convey.

Come! Sweet LOVE, take me to the Heavens,

While cascading Your beauty, inside the Deity within my Shrine,

To grant me sweet serenity and perfect peace.

On Philanthropy and Giving

Giving expands the human heart, and makes us receptive to His Love. When we give, we are not doing anything special; not searching for name and fame, but are consciously or unconsciously, enhancing our own growth. Truly speaking, we cannot really give, but merely serve. If humanity is our brothers and sisters, then who is giving what to whom? God is the only Giver.

Receiving is a need and likewise, giving is also a need. The Maestro gives by virtue of his virtuoso in the field of music, and the audience receives his expertise as well as solace to their minds and spirit. Still, the Maestro cannot function in an empty hall, with no applause and financial gains.

The flower offers freely of its fragrance, but it needs the blessings of Mother earth, the rain, the gardener and the love of otherwise ferocious animals and creatures, inn order to survive.

Let us be grateful to the ones we serve, for they are giving us an opportunity to make progress; to grow inwardly; to unveil the curtains in our hearts, so as to be receptive to the Master's Light. Giving lessens our inner burdens: greed, guilt, anger,ego ..., thus acting as a conduit or magnet to attract God's Grace, to transform our lower nature. I bid you much peace. In Love and Light.

      Hehe, Bro.

      I believe that this is the one that I had lost. It's close enough! Amazed you remembered so much! Of course my answer is still here from before and I trust that you saw it. Please continue in your infinite beauty and Light.

      Your Friend, Manatita

      Now this poem! I started to write sonnets as an exercise in expression. I was trying to express my love for my wife and my family. Through this exercise I realized it is very hard to describe love, it comes to us in so many disguises. I am in awe when a poet is able to take the vastness in the definition of love and bring to the world love, in all its granduer, as a poem. You have succeeded and proven yourself a poet of the ages. Love Jamie.
