The New Millennium

Part I — Poems

1.

Twenty-First Century, the New Millennium!
No more the old sorrows and joys-compendium.
God's Heart, God's Eye, a new hope and a new promise!
O run and dive and fly — Bliss, Infinity's Bliss!
The world shall cheer the road with a God-surrender-song.
Creator's Silence-Hearts, creation's sound-lives throng.

2.

O New Millennium,
You come and stand before me.
For me, you are a divine guest.
You come to me with love divine.
I call you my own.
The moment you appear before me,
In you I feel my ever-growing newness
And ever-fulfilling oneness.

3.

We usher in the New Millennium
To grow into
Its beauty and fragrance
Infinite.

4.

Each blossoming century
Begins with a new Hope
From God's Heart
And a new Promise
From God's Eye.

5.

The 21st Century
Shall begin its stupendous journey
With an amazing heart-cry
For God's Forgiveness.

6.

In the 21st Century
God is asking me
To follow Him untiringly,
For He is planning to place
Our mutual victory-crown
On my head.

7.

Where shall I live in the 21st Century?
I shall live in two places:
God's Sweetness-Heartbeat
And
Man's pilgrim-heart-temple.

8.

The 21st Century
Is fast approaching.
May each human being remember
His Himalayan promises to God
And start fulfilling them.

9.

May the New Millennium
Usher in God's new Dream,
God's new Promise
And God's new Satisfaction,
To liberate humanity
From the throes
Of ignorance-bondage.

10.

In the 20th Century
Every day I woke up
With streaming tears
In my eyes.

11.

In the 21st Century
Every day I shall wake up
With blossoming smiles
In my heart.

12.

My Lord Beloved Supreme
Is making a solemn Promise to me
That every day He will come to me
With a fountain of His choice Blessings
To help me manifest His Light
Everywhere
Under the rainbow-smile-sky
Of the 21st Century.

13.

The truth-seekers and God-lovers
Will undoubtedly be given
Special opportunity
To spread their hearts' sunshine
Everywhere
In the New Millennium.

14.

The New Millennium will teach me
That the endless Goal
Is inseparably one
With the endless Journey.

15.

The devotion-musician in me
Is all ready to play
God's Song of Love
Upon my heart-strings
In the New Millennium.

16.

My Lord,
May I see the arrival
Of the New Millennium
Through my wide open heart-door
And not through my closed mind-window.

17.

My Lord Supreme whispers
Deep within my heart
That only my aspiration-heart
And dedication-life
Shall be rooted and grounded
In the most fertile soil
Of the 21st Century.

18.

May all uncomely memories
Of the 20th Century
Fade away from my mind
As rapidly as possible!

19.

I wish to remember only one thing:
That I was made only of God's Joy
To become God's toy
In the New Millennium.

20.

One desire I had;
The same desire I still have.
I am sure the fulfilment of that desire
Shall take place in the New Millennium.
And what is that desire?
My constant companionship
With my Lord Beloved Supreme.

21.

From the aspiration
Of the New Millennium
I shall come to learn
That it is impossible
To love God too much.

22.

In the 20th Century
We have not succeeded
In conquering the godless spirit
Of our age.
But in the 21st Century
We shall undoubtedly succeed.

23.

It is the bounden duty
Of the truth-seekers and God-lovers
Of the New Millennium
To transform the old decadence of the mind
Into a new renaissance of the heart.

24.

Lo, what is leaving us
Upon the arrival of the 21st Century?
Our impoverished doubt-mind.
And lo, what is embracing us?
The plenitude of a faith-heart.

25.

The old millennium says
To the New Millennium:
"My Brother,
Do not make the same mistakes
That I made!"

26.

I hear the sweetness-whispers
Of the New Millennium
Inside my Heaven-climbing heart.

27.

The New Millennium is commanding me:
"Smile, smile, smile!
Lo, I have brought you
A hope-sea and a promise-sun."

28.

In the 20th Century
I was my mind-drum.
In the 21st Century
I shall become my heart-flute.
I am sure my Lord's Compassion-Smile
Will pass through me.

29.

I want to be a child
Of the next century,
When I will be a genuine self-giver
For the full manifestation
Of my Lord Beloved Supreme.

30.

Each God-manifestation-dreamer
On earth
Is a supreme herald
Of a new age.

31.

My life, be not afraid!
Be brave!
God Himself will hail
Each and every forward step of yours
Into the heart-country
Of the 21st Century.

32.

God wants me to grow and glow
In the aspiration-heart
Of the New Millennium.

33.

Let us be prepared to welcome
The fast-approaching promise-blossoms
Of a new century.

34.

My prayer-eye
I shall devotedly turn upward.
My meditation-eye
I shall unconditionally turn inward.
This, indeed, is my solemn promise
To myself
In the 21st Century.

35.

In the New Millennium,
Out of His infinite Bounty,
God will give us the capacity
To recapture
Our sweetness-moments with Him.

36.

Today, what I call
Communion with God,
Tomorrow that very thing
Will become God's and my
Ultimate reunion.

37.

I wish to be oblivious
To each and every thing
Save and except my God-worship
In the New Millennium.

38.

O 21st Century,
I would like you to be a witness
While my Lord and I
Feed and nourish each other
With the exchange of our smiles.

39.

O divine flames
Of the 21st Century's love,
Do burn my past here and now.
Carry me and place me
Inside your ever-blossoming heart.

40.

A new century is a new life.
A new life is a new second.
A new second is a new opportunity.
A new opportunity is a new Blessing
From the Infinite Supreme.

41.

I can clearly see
That the 20th Century's
Phantom-nights
Will soon be cleared away
By the fast-approaching
21st Century.

42.

God's Compassion-Rain descended
In measureless measure on humanity
In the 20th Century.
Humanity did not rejoice — nay,
Did not even take notice of it.

43.

In the New Millennium
God's Compassion-Rain shall again descend
In measureless measure.
And this time it will be greeted by
Humanity's wide open receptivity-heart-door.

44.

God tells us
That He has already erased
His dissatisfaction-memories.
How is it that we
Are not doing the same?
Why? Why? Why?
Why do we have to wait
For the arrival of the next century?

45.

Today's God-climbing cry
And tomorrow's God-descending Smile
Cannot live without each other.

46.

O seeker,
God will definitely be proud of you
If you can make even an iota of progress
With your tiny aspiration-dedication-steps
In the New Millennium.

47.

On the eve of the New Millennium,
A new consciousness is dawning on earth.
God once again is inspiring
Each creation of His
With new hope, new light, new peace
And new joy.

48.

In the New Millennium
May God the Creator
Be victorious
In the life of God the creation.

49.

The New Millennium
Shall be the embodiment
Of sacred hopes
And lofty promises.

50.

The fulfilment of the mind
Has been the hope
Of the past few centuries.
Now the fulfilment of the heart
Will be the hope
Of the next generation
And of all generations to come.
Indeed, this will be a unique contribution
Of the 21st Century to humanity.

51.

In the New Millennium
Humanity in general will follow
Its unerring intuition,
Not its confusing, confused,
Binding and blinding mind.

52.

The 20th Century has been
A large quantity of the mind's
Unfulfilled hopes.

53.

The 21st Century will undoubtedly be
An unlimited quantity of the heart's
Illumining and fulfilling hopes.

54.

God has already commanded
His heart-children
To confiscate all the self-doubt
And God-doubt-books
Written by the 20th Century mind.

55.

God wants the heart to write
In the New Millennium
An infinite number of self-faith,
World-faith and God-faith-books.

56.

In the 20th Century
Humanity prayed
With the thunder-sound
Of the mind.

57.

In the New Millennium
Humanity shall pray
With the sweetness-dreams
Of the heart.
God and God's Heart
Shall give an immediate
Satisfaction-Pride-Response.

58.

In the 20th Century
Humanity's weak faith
Could not see things
That were not only visible
But also clearly within sight.

59.

In the 21st Century
Faith will unmistakably see
Not only things
That are totally out of sight,
But even things invisible.
Faith will see
The beauty and power of Light
Everywhere,
Even in the farthest corners of the globe.

60.

In the 20th Century
The mind-jungle produced nothing
But worthless and useless weeds.

61.

In the 21st Century
The heart-garden will produce
Divinity's Blooms
And Immortality's Blossoms.

62.

If we are true God-lovers,
Then no mind-obscurity can block
Our God-manifestation-horizon
In the 21st Century.

63.

May we all pray
Only for God's Leadership
In the life of humanity
In the 21st Century.

64.

God always gives us the freedom of choice.
Quite often we do not make the proper choice.
But in the 21st Century
We shall not only make proper choices,
But also utilise them to the fullest extent.

65.

May I both consciously and unconsciously
Do always the right thing
And not disappoint my Beloved Supreme
Even once
In the New Millennium.

66.

If we do not happily leave behind
The achievements of the 20th Century
And go forward,
We shall not be able to welcome
Lovingly and self-givingly
The arrival of the 21st Century.

67.

The 21st Century
Will definitely respond
Readily, willingly and unreservedly
To those who are in need
Of beauty, power, light and delight.

68.

O Supreme Pilot of the New Millennium,
Do make my heart and my life
Your two most faithful dogs
And Your two fastest deers.

69.

My whole being
Is eager to devour
The beauty and fragrance
Of the New Millennium.

70.

My Lord,
Do give me the champion-speed
To reach the heart
Of the New Millennium
Sooner than the soonest.

71.

In the 20th Century
I enjoyed my life
In an unillumined way.
But in the New Millennium
I shall have only one way:
The way of my Inner Pilot.

72.

In the 20th Century
The human in me
Did many unpleasant things
To both humanity and Divinity.
But in the 21st Century
The divine in me
Will have no time for anything else
But to please God.

73.

Every day I shall make
My determination infinitely stronger
To offer something supremely worthwhile
To God
For His full manifestation here on earth
In the New Millennium.

74.

From the New Millennium
I shall come to learn
That my aspiration, my dedication,
My salvation, my realisation
And my liberation I shall receive
From my complete God-dependence.

75.

Alas, my heart is now very feeble
In God-devotion.
But I strongly promise to myself
That the beauty and fragrance
Of my unconditional devotion
Shall, without fail, reach God's Feet
From the new year on.

76.

In the New Millennium
I shall not allow
Either self-doubt or God-doubt
To cast its shadow
Over my God-aspiring
And God-serving existence.

77.

In the New Millennium
I shall find my life-boat
Being steered by God Himself
Between
My God-affirmation-prayer-life-shore
And
My God-affirmation-meditation-heart-shore.

78.

Where can my dying hope
Have a new life,
If not in the heart
Of the New Millennium?

79.

Where can my unfulfilled
God-manifestation-promise be fulfilled,
If not in the heart
Of the New Millennium?

80.

O New Millennium, O New Millennium!
You are your blue sky's thunder-drum!
Hope-mountain climbing,
Promise-fountain dancing.
Earth's peace and Heaven's Bliss
Call me, "Come, come, come!"

81.

Twenty-First Century,
A fully blossomed tree.
Twenty-first Century,
A oneness-heart free.
Twenty-first Century,
A fulness-life-sea.

82.

Twenty-First Century,
No more hungry penury.
Twenty-first Century,
A newness-fulness-glory.
Twenty-first Century,
World-transformation-story.

83.

Twenty-First Century,
I shall become the worshipper
Of Truth Absolute.
Twenty-first Century,
I shall become the beckoning hand
Of the world-liberation.

84.

Twenty-First Century!
O Heaven's Beauty and Fragrance,
Do come down, come down,
Chasing darkness.

85.

Twenty-First Century, Twenty-first Century,
Twenty-first Century!
You are the abode of mankind's dream.
Twenty-first Century, Twenty-first Century,
Twenty-first Century!
In the vastness of the blue sky,
You are the liberation-kite of humanity's new heart.
Twenty-first Century, Twenty-first Century,
Twenty-first Century!
You are at once the Hunger unfathomable
And Satisfaction immeasurable
Of the universal and transcendental Father Supreme.
Twenty-first Century, Twenty-first Century,
Twenty-first Century!
You are Infinity's Compassion-Eye.
Do come and steal my heart!

86.

What shall I do in the 21st Century?
I shall only fly and fly
On my life's newness-wings
And fulness-smiles
To please my Beloved Lord Supreme.

87.

Twenty-First Century, Twenty-first Century,
Twenty-first Century!
You will utterly destroy the darkness-wall
Of ignorance-night.
The delicate softness-touch of your new light
Shall awaken the slumbering world.
Your Infinity's immortal Satisfaction
Heaven and earth shall together treasure and enjoy.

88.

Tomorrow's joy is fast approaching
To transform our today's suffering.
Let us not suspect tomorrow's smile.
Let us embrace and be embraced
By tomorrow's aspiration and dedication
In the New Millennium.

89.

Alas, so far this world of ours
Has not cried for God
To God's Satisfaction.
In the New Millennium
May it powerfully compensate!

90.

In this century
We are only plagued by our conscience,
And nothing more.
But in the forthcoming century
Our aspiration and dedication
Shall offer abundant joy
To our God-oneness-conscience-will.

91.

The New Millennium
Will never demand of us
A mountain-silence-sanctuary,
But a fountain-silence-sound-life-experiment
And life-enlightenment-laboratory.

92.

In The New Millennium
We shall learn something unprecedented:
How to accomplish invaluable things
Without hurting a single human being.

93.

In the New Millennium
We shall receive strength from God
That will be abundantly greater
Than the difficulty of our circumstances.

94.

In the New Millennium
The truth-seekers and God-lovers
Shall proclaim something
Divinely great and supremely good:
The demise of the reasoning mind
And the rise of the oneness-heart.

95.

To our great joy and satisfaction,
In the 21st Century our ceaseless wrestling
With our mind and vital
Will come to an end.
Soon even our vital and mind will join us
When we embark on anything new
And support our every progress-effort.

96.

The 20th Century taught us
That killing the senses
Would please our Sweetness-Lord.
Alas, it was a false teaching.

97.

The 21st Century will teach us
That the acceptance, illumination
And transformation of the senses
Can and will please our Sweetness-Lord.

98.

Alas, humanity has not responded
To God's beckoning Eye
In the 20th Century.

99.

My prayer-life and meditation-heart
Tell me that humanity
Will definitely heed
The beckoning heart
Of the New Millennium.

100.

God became His invisible
Compassion-Eye
And Forgiveness-Heart
In the 20th Century.

101.

God shall become His visible
Satisfaction-Eye
And Pride-Heart
In the 21st Century.

102.

In the 20th Century,
To our greatest sorrow
And misfortune,
Even humanity's readiness
Sadly failed to keep
Its eye on God.

103.

In the 21st Century,
To our greatest joy
And satisfaction,
Mankind's readiness,
Willingness and eagerness,
And all its other divine virtues,
Shall focus only on God.

104.

The 20th Century has shown its capacity
By proving to the world
That the power of destruction
Is unlimited.
But the 21st Century shall prove
That the power of world-loving,
World-illumining
And world-transforming creation
Is unlimited.

105.

We are on the brink
Of a New Millennium.
Are we ready to welcome
The New Millennium
With the newness of our mind
And the fulness of our heart?
Alas, no, no, no!

106.

O humanity, stop ignoring God!
Pay all attention to your inner voice.
Each day of the New Millennium
Can prove to be an excellent opportunity
For you to please God.

107.

My Lord Supreme,
May the birth of the New Millennium
Herald Your supreme Victory
In and through Your obedient,
Self-giving and satisfaction-loving
Children.

108.

How I wish each and every human being
Would strive to make
The Absolute Lord Supreme happy
In the 21st Century,
Unlike in the present one!

109.

We have all along known
That pride is a deadly roadblock
To our inner progress,
Yet we have done nothing
To conquer the volcano-pride
Of our mind.
But the 21st Century,
Right from the beginning,
Shall smash the mind's pride
Into millions of pieces
So the God-seekers and God-lovers
Can run the fastest
Towards the Destination Supreme.

110.

In the New Millennium
I shall tell my mind
To shut up
Once and for all!

111.

In the New Millennium
I can clearly see that my heart
Will always stand up for me,
No matter what I say and do.

112.

As the New Millennium
Enters into our aspiration-heart,
We needs must develop
An insatiable hunger
To please God and fulfil God's Will.

113.

I am sure my prayers
Will not end in vain.
I shall unmistakably live
Under the direct guidance
Of God's Will
In the 21st Century.

114.

I shall no longer
Make the same mistake
In the New Millennium.
I promise to God and to myself
That I shall never dare to measure
The immeasurable Compassion and Forgiveness
Of my Lord Supreme
With my limiting thoughts and words.

115.

Self-doubt and God-doubt
Have hindered humanity's aspiration
For a very, very long time.
In the New Millennium
Self-doubt and God-doubt will be replaced
By self-surrender and God-faith.

116.

May mankind's faith
Be the direct God-representative
Of the 21st Century.

117.

Each human being has suffered ruthlessly
From doubt-assaults
In the present century.
But the forthcoming,
Fast-approaching 21st Century
Will be a most powerful faith-citadel.

118.

I clearly envision
That the doubting mind will be compelled
To take a back seat to the aspiring heart
In the next century.

119.

In the 21st Century
The God-seekers will no longer undervalue,
But will cherish and treasure
Their heart-diamond.

120.

In the 20th Century
Power and helplessness
Are in action.

121.

In the 21st Century
Love and Light
Will be in action.

122.

The oldness
Of the 20th Century
Is staggering.

123.

The newness
Of the 21st Century
Will be skyrocketing.

124.

The oldness
Of the 20th Century
Finds it extremely difficult
To be part of
Readiness, willingness and eagerness.

125.

The newness
Of the 21st Century
Will have readiness, willingness
And eagerness
As prominent members
Of its peaceful and fruitful family.

126.

Attachment-bondage-body-chains
Have bound the earthly body
Of the 20th Century.

127.

Detachment-freedom-soul-delight
Shall inundate the earth-arena
In the 21st Century.

128.

Enthusiasm-life
Is a perfect stranger
To the present-day world.

129.

Tomorrow's world
Shall be founded upon
Enthusiasm-breath.

130.

Today's world
Is desperately fighting
To be at the top of success-glory
And enjoy the supreme victory.

131.

Tomorrow's world
Shall discover the supreme truth
That what we call the ultimate height
Is only the beginning
Of a new, ever-transcending height
Which embodies
The ever-increasing Beauty and Fragrance
Of God the Seer, God the Lover
And God the Beloved.

132.

In the 20th Century
Humanity is
What humanity wanted to be:
World-destruction-trumpeter.

133.

In the 21st Century
Humanity will become
What humanity should be:
World-peace-grower.

134.

Today's
Vision-empty world
Belongs to
Division-hunger.

135.

Tomorrow's
Vision-blossomed world
Will belong to
Oneness-feast.

136.

The 20th Century's
Mighty contribution
Is success-zeal.

137.

The 21st Century's
Mighty contribution
Will be progress-thrill.

138.

Yesterday
My Lord Supreme
Smilingly celebrated
My God-embodiment-gratitude-heart.

139.

Today
My Lord Supreme
Is proudly celebrating
My God-revelation-gratitude-life.

140.

Tomorrow
My Lord Supreme
Will happily, proudly,
Majestically and unreservedly
Celebrate
My God-manifestation-gratitude-breath.

141.

My Lord Supreme
Has repeatedly told me
That my gratitude-heart
Is my fastest
Success-progress-vehicle,
And I am bound to prove it true
In the 21st Century.

142.

May each and every
Human being on earth
Be a happiness-blossom
Of God-fulness-faith
In the New Millennium.

143.

O truth-seekers and God-lovers,
Do not give up,
Do not give up!
The 21st Century
Will help you find your way Home.

144.

Yesterday
My hope-life was hopeless.
Today
My hope-life is beautiful.
Tomorrow,
In the New Millennium,
My hope-life will blossom
Into a God-certainty-garden.

145.

Today God is
His towering Compassion
For man.
Tomorrow the same God will be
His highest Satisfaction
In man.

146.

What will God do every day
Of the next century?
Every day He will reinforce
Our love for Him
And give us extra Compassion
To develop our power of God-reliance.

147.

Once we are in the heart
Of the New Millennium,
We must realise that any thought
That is not aspiring
Can waste precious time
On our God-discovery-journey.

148.

I am putting an end
To my self-criticism-life.
The New Millennium is beckoning me
To become a member
Of the God-reliance-committee.

149.

Each century has
Something special to offer.
The special offering
Of the 20th Century
Is that despair shall not mark
Its journey's close.

150.

The 20th Century
Has blessed me with
A Heaven-climbing heart.

151.

The 21st Century
Shall bless me with
A Heaven-sacrificing life.

152.

In the present century
Each seeker is
A God-joy-song to humanity.

153.

In the forthcoming century
Each seeker shall be
A God-manifestation-perfection-satisfaction
For humanity.

154.

In the 20th Century
Self-indulgence
Is what we are.

155.

In the 21st Century
God-effulgence
Is what we shall become.

156.

Today's promise-world
Is an unthinkably hurtful
Hollowness-night.

157.

Tomorrow's promise-world
Will be an unimaginably beautiful
Fulness-delight.

158.

Today's ignorance-drunk mind
Says:
"God's Presence is redundant!"

159.

Tomorrow's wisdom-flooded heart
Shall say:
"God's Presence is sleeplessly
And breathlessly indispensable."

160.

The 20th Century's success
Mostly depends on
Money-power-exploitation.

161.

The 21st Century's progress
Shall solely depend on
Heart-power-expansion.

162.

Ambition-competition-winner-banner-flyer
Marks the 20th Century.

163.

Newness-soulfulness-oneness-fulness-lover
Shall mark the 21st Century.

164.

"I do what I want!"
This is indeed
The motto of the 20th Century.

165.

"God wants me to become perfect.
Therefore, I shall!"
This will indeed be
The motto of the 21st Century.

166.

"Find and become
The all-devouring greed."
This is precisely what I have learned
From the 20th Century.

167.

"Become and feed
The all-transcending need."
This is what I shall blessingfully learn
From the 21st Century.

168.

In the 20th Century
Spirituality has become
Earth's heartbreaking sigh.

169.

In the 21st Century
Spirituality will become
Earth's Heaven-climbing smile.

170.

In the 20th Century
My face
Reveals my name.

171.

In the 21st Century
God's Grace
Shall reveal my name.

172.

O seeker,
Do not lose heart!
The 21st Century will bring back
Your two long-lost Friends:
God and God's Compassion-Eye.

173.

In the New Millennium
I shall miss my Beloved Supreme most.
Therefore, I shall find Him nearest.

174.

The New Millennium has commenced
Its momentous journey today.
From today on, I shall not offer
My volcano-ambition to the world.
I shall offer the world
Only my moonlit heart's
Flaming aspiration.

175.

The chant of the New Millennium:
"The world's heart-home
Is the Beauty and Fragrance
Of the Absolute Lord Supreme."

176.

The God-love and God-devotion-boats
Are sailing slowly and steadily
Towards the Destination.
The God-surrender-boat
Is still fast asleep.
But in the New Millennium
These three boats
Will sail unimaginably fast
Towards the Golden Shore
For the transformation of human life,
The perfection of the human heart
And the manifestation of
God's Light and Delight
In every corner of the globe.

177.

Indefatigable God-lovers and God-servers
Shall walk the soil
Of the 21st Century
Lovingly, soulfully and self-givingly.

178.

In the 20th Century
We have left God
To be with ourselves.

179.

In the 21st Century
We shall leave ourselves for God
And we shall live
Only for God, only for God.

Part II — New Millennium songs

Twenty-First Century, the New Millennium!1

Twenty-first Century, the New Millennium!
No more the old sorrows and joys-compendium.
God's Heart, God's Eye, a new hope and a new promise!
O run and dive and fly — Bliss, Infinity's Bliss!
The world shall cheer the road with a God-surrender-song.
Creator's Silence-Hearts, creation's sound-lives throng.

You are the abode of mankind's dream.

In the vastness of the blue sky,
You are the liberation-kite
Of humanity's new heart.

And Satisfaction immeasurable
Of the universal and transcendental Father Supreme.

Do come and steal my heart!

O New Millennium

O New Millennium, O New Millennium!

Earth's peace and Heaven's Bliss
Call me, "Come, come, come!"

A fully blossomed tree.

No more hungry penury.
Twenty-first Century,
A newness-fulness-glory.
Twenty-first Century,
World-transformation-story.

Eka bingsha shatabdi

Twenty-first Century, Twenty-first Century,

You will utterly destroy the darkness-wall
Of ignorance-night.
The delicate softness-touch of your new light
Shall awaken the slumbering world.
Your Infinity's immortal Satisfaction
Heaven and earth shall together treasure and enjoy.
