To Be Divinely Great

To be divinely great is to serve. To be supremely good is to love. To be eternally perfect is to cry within sleeplessly. To be satisfied in God’s own way is to become consciously and constantly a heart of gratitude-flood.

The human in me desires greatness. The divine in me longs for goodness. The aspiring and ascending God within me yearns for perfection. The loving and manifesting God in me cries for satisfaction.

The Significance of Aum

“A Sanskrit word or syllable has a special significance and creative power. When we chant AUM, what actually happens is that we bring down Peace and Light from above and create a universal harmony within and without us. When we repeat AUM, both our inner and our outer beings become inspired and surcharged with divine Light and aspiration. AUM has no equal. AUM has infinite Power. Just by repeating AUM, we can realise God.”

– Sri Chinmoy

From: Prayer-World, Mantra-World and Japa-World

My Sweet Lord

My sweet Lord,
Do You cover
My falsehood-life,
Impurity-breath
And
Bondage-night?

“My sweet daughter,
I cover them not;
Again, I expose them not.
I claim your possession-world
As my reality’s substance
And essence.

Therefore
I own your little world
And
I endeavour to change the face
Of your little world
To My Satisfaction-Light.”

Excerpt from The Golden Boat, Part 6 by Sri Chinmoy.

Poetry by Members of Sri Chinmoy Centre

Sri Chinmoy encouraged his own students to publish their own poems in a biannual publication called Panorama.

There are now several selections from the current and previous editions at a new website

The site is maintained by Shardul from New Zealand.

The most recent edition, April 2008, is a tribute to Sri Chinmoy, who passed away recently. There is a biography of Sri Chinmoy here – About Sri Chinmoy 

The main editors of the magazine Panorama are, Prabhakar and Abichal, two of the founders of Poetseers.org 

May The Beauty of the New Year

May the beauty of the New Year
Beautify my heart.
May the purity of the New Year
Purify my mind.
May the simplicity of the New Year
Simplify my vital.
May the intensity of the New Year
Intensify my body.
May the responsibility of the New Year
Glorify my life.
May only the divinity of the New Year
Fully satisfy me.
