From the Source to the Source


Right from my infancy my brother Chitta has inspired me, encouraged me and taught me lovingly and unreservedly how to devotedly and successfully enter into the poetry-world. Therefore today with my heart's boundless gratitude I am offering my seeker-poet's flower-gathering to him, the Source of my poetry-world.

1. I need

I need

A new beginning-light.

I need

A new transcending height.

I need

A new fulfilling joy.

I need

A new God-loving Chinmoy.

2. I give, I live

I give,

With a sleepless smile I give.

I live,

With a breathless cry I live.

I sow,

The seed of peace I sow.

I row,

My golden boat I row.

3. That was the day of my golden dreams

That was the day

Of my golden dreams

When I firmly stood

Above human schemes,

Above earth-clay,

Above my cry,

Above my sigh,

Above world-snare,

God only my care.

4. I please my hunger stark

I please my hunger stark

And boldly enjoy my freedom-night.

I know, no joy I know

Within, without, below, above.

Until I breathe and own

The life of my blue perfection-love.

5. My Lord in silence

My human pride.

My Lord in silence gives

My heart a ride.

6. My heart-to-heart talk

My heart-to-heart

Talk with my Lord Supreme

Cancels my darkness-dream.

Am I not smart?

My heart-to-heart

Talk with my human souls

Takes me to eyeless goals;

Ere me death-dart.

7. I love

I love, O world,

No, not because I give.

I give because I love,

Because I live

In my Master's vision-sky

With my selfless glow.

Perfection now am I

In my breathless flow.

In my Lord's Compassion-Light.

A gift worth breaking: noise.

13. Yours is the heart

Are you your own

Sublime self-styled boss?

Yours is the heart

Of breathless and godless loss.

Are you your own

Soulful devotion-slave?

Yours is the crown

Of matchless victory brave.

One thing you,

Only you deserve: delight.

One thing he,

Only he deserves: soul-flight.

One thing I,

Only I deserve: God-choice.

One thing all,

Only all deserve: Truth-voice.

15. Although I brag

Although I brag and brag,

Nothing to brag about.

Although I drag and drag,

Nothing to drag around.

Although I cry and cry,

Nothing I truly need.

Although I search and search,

Nothing yet I have found.

16. A big mistake

A big mistake:

I love my face

Of black disgrace.

A big success:

I love my dream,

Sky-blue Supreme.

17. From death to life

From death to life

Promise, my friend supreme, beckons

My feeble sight.

From life to death

Failure, my giant foe, marshals

My human right.

18. Things are totally different now

Things are totally different now.

My Saviour-Friend forgets to smile.

Slowly shall blossom pure

And touch the sun

In all its brilliance sure.

O doubt, my tricky foe,

Away you needs must go.

His beauty's boat is serving nectar-food.

Awake and dive into your ecstasy deep.

Be wise!

23. Stop, O trouble-maker!

Stop, O trouble-maker!

My friend, trouble-shooter,

Is all ready

To end your eyeless play.

You and your wiles forced me

To climb life's nothingness-tree.

O trouble-maker, stop,

Stop your frontless hop.

24. Behold your life

Alas, an all-day sermon-food

Has ruined your child-heart's beauty-glow.

Behold your life and its nothingness-flow!

Dive deep within to see the face —

You be your friend and teacher good —

Of loving and guiding summit-grace.

25. Your little world God needs

Go pay high wages, sure,

My friends, only be pure.

Your little world God needs

28. You are not too late

You are too late, who says?

No, you are not.

Your spirit's beauty-rays.

You are not too late.

Again begin your quest

For divinity-nest.

Resume your summit plays.

29. You are crazy

You are crazy, insane; you fool,

You miss often your inner school.

You are impure beyond measure;

You need a heavy, ruthless pressure.

I sing,

No, not because

I have a superb voice;


Because I fulfil

God's unhorizoned Choice.

Your lance has smashed my pride.

In vain I cry and sigh,

No hole for me to hide.

My ego-trip

I have cancelled to aspire,

Slowly to win the race

Of God's sweet Haven-Grace.

Man, I shall love your aspiration-flame.

I hope it meets with your

Approval white.

A seeker's breath;

A fruitful trance;

Therefore I weep.

Can torture your hearts.

Therefore, beware

And do not dare.

Dagger of the vital: frustration.

Dagger of the mind: doubt.

Dagger of the body: conflagration.

In vain I cry.

Yet hope-bud must bloom.

For me no doom.

The touch of the stars
