To climb up to Heaven
Every day,
I must feed my heart’s
Aspiration-flames.

Sri Chinmoy (1)

Be not afraid of Heaven.
Heaven is empty of justice-hands.
Heaven is all compassion-heart.

Sri Chinmoy (2)

“My Lord, I have read much
about Heaven and Hell.
I have also heard more
about Heaven and Hell
than I can possibly digest.
What do they mean when they say
that someone is living in Heaven
and someone is living in Hell?”

“My son, I do not know what they mean
when they speak of Heaven and Hell.
But I shall tell you what I mean.
To live with Me is to live in Heaven.
To live without Me is to live in Hell.”

Sri Chinmoy (3)

The Kingdom of Heaven
Is not for a darkened mind.
The Kingdom of Heaven
Is not for a trembling heart.
The Kingdom of Heaven
Is not for an unloving life.
The Kingdom of Heaven
Is only for the God-dreaming
And God-pleasing soul.

Sri Chinmoy (4)

THE MARRIAGE OF HEAVEN AND HELL

Where is the marriage
Of Heaven and Hell?

The marriage of Heaven and Hell
Is in the mind’s dry desert
And in the heart’s loving nest.

Sri Chinmoy (5)

WHERE IS HEAVEN?

Where is Heaven?
Not in my ignorant sound-life.
Where is Heaven?
Not in my undying life-tears.
Where is Heaven?
Heaven is in my God-building heart.
Where is Heaven?
Heaven is in my self-offering light
And
God-becoming delight.

Sri Chinmoy (6)

If earth gets tired
Of loving Heaven,
Heaven does not mind.
Perhaps God also does not mind.
But if ever Heaven gets tired
Of loving earth,
Earth will helplessly weep,
And God will use nothing
But His Volcano-Ire.

Sri Chinmoy (7)

Heaven is both
Complete silence
And
Perfect sound.

– Sri Chinmoy (8)

“I lifted up my eyes to see the Heaven. I saw it not. I closed my eyes to feel the Heaven. I felt it not. I thought of God. To my widest surprise, God said that I am not only the Heaven but His Heaven.”
