My Lord, I pray to You

1.

My Lord Beloved Supreme,

I pray to You to grant me

Only one Boon

In this incarnation of mine:

Every morning and every evening

I wish to wash

Your Infinity's Compassion-Feet

With my heart's gratitude-tears.


2.

My Absolute Lord Supreme

My outer Success entirely depends

On Your Eye's Compassion-Flower.

My inner progress breathlessly depends

On Your Heart's Satisfaction-Fragrance.


3.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

I am proud of my

Success-mind-body-thunder-drum,

And You are fond of my

Progress-heart-life-nectar-flute.


4.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

From today on

I shall use my heart

In a new way

To feel spontaneously

Your Compassion and Forgiveness

Infinitely more

And also to give You

My newly-born love and surrender

Cheerfully and unconditionally.


5.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

Is there any special way

To please You in Your own Way

At every moment of my life?


"My sweet child,

There is a way, there is a way.

Just give Me your obedience —

Cheerful obedience

And soulful obedience,

Oneness-obedience

And fulness-obedience.

Lo, you have the capacity

And you are the capacity

To please Me in My own Way

At every moment of your life."


6.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

Alas, why do I feed and nourish

Teeming imaginary sufferings

And thus disappear

From Your Eye's

Compassion-Illumination-Protection-Nest

To enter into

The desolate desert-Sahara?


7.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

In my devouring

Animal incarnations

You loved me unconditionally.

In my doubting

Human incarnations

You loved me unconditionally.

And now,

In my aspiring divine incarnation

You are loving me unconditionally.

My Lord,

Do grant me the supreme capacity

To breathe in the sweet fragrance

Of sacred remembrance.


8.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

My body is hiding my purity.

My vital is hiding my humility.

My mind is hiding my sincerity.

My heart is hiding my divinity.

My soul is hiding my Immortality.

My Lord, my Lord, my Lord,

Do compel them to give me back

My Eternity's treasures

In infinite measure.


9.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

With my heart's mounting cries

I wish to prove to myself

That I need You only.

With my eyes' glowing smiles

I wish to prove to myself

That I love You only.

With my life's self-giving ecstasies

I wish to prove to myself

That I serve You only.


10.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

When I cheerfully place

At Your Compassion-Feet

My life's tiny success-leaf,

You immediately, blessingfully

And unconditionally help me

Climb Your Heart's

Tallest Progress-Tree.


11.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

My desire-mind thinks

That it can have everything.

My aspiration-heart feels

That it has everything.

My realisation-life knows

That it is everything.

My Lord, You are telling me

That I am Your Eternity's

Dream-fulfilling child.


12.

My Absolute Lord Supreme

Who, if not You,

Can and will liberate me

From the meshes

Of ignorance-night?


My Lord,

When, if not now

Will You grant me

Your Eternity's Closeness,

Your Infinity's Oneness

And Your Immortality's Fulness?


13.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

My gratitude-heart

Is the only place

Where I can see

Your Compassion-Feet.


14.

My Lord,

Now is the only time for me

To be a perfect instrument

Of Your Vision-Eye.


15.

My Lord,

I am one of those

Supremely chosen instruments

Of Yours

Who are going to please You always

In Your own Way —

Always!


16.

My Lord,

You are telling me

That You are not going to waste

Even a fleeting second with me

Anymore

If spirituality is my mind's luxury.

But if spirituality is my heart's

Supreme necessity,

Then every day You will teach me

A new lesson

Absolutely illumining

And supremely fulfilling.


17.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

My yesterday's dream was

To become another Supreme

Like You.

My today's dream is

To see Your Infinity's

Vision-Eye.

My tomorrow's dream shall be

To touch Your Immortality's

Compassion-Forgiveness-Feet.


18.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

You are the Supervisor

Of my hesitation-mind,

You are the Inspirer

Of my dedication-hands,

You are the Lover

Of my aspiration-heart

And You are the Dreamer

Of my perfection-life.


19.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

How can I please You

At every moment

In Your own Way?


"My child, easy!

Just give Me at every moment

Your biting thought-monkeys

And take from Me

My roaring Will-Power-Lion."


20.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

This morning I was so excited

To see You secretly entering

Into my heart-room,

And now I am so delighted

To see You smilingly

Throwing away

My heart-room's exit sign.


21.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

This morning to You I offered

My mind's ten desire-thorns

To make myself happy,

And now to You I am offering

My heart's seventy aspiration-flowers

To make You happy.


22.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

This morning You said to me

That You will never revoke

Your Heart's

Forgiveness-Credit Card.

Please keep Your Promise!


"My child,

This morning you said to Me

That you will never remove

The gratitude-plant

From your heart-garden.

Please keep your promise!"


23.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

How can You prove

To the world at large

That I am a supremely chosen

Instrument-child of Yours

To realise You, to reveal You

And to manifest You here on earth

Unless and until

I forcefully silence

My doubting mind?


24.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

This morning

When my heart caught You

In Your Vision-blossoming,

Playful Mood,

You immediately gave me back

My Eternity's childhood

To smile at You soulfully,

To play with You sleeplessly

And to dance with You

Breathlessly.


25.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

You are telling me

That You will grant me

Your Eternity's Divinity,

Your Infinity's Quantity

And Your Immortality's Quality

If I just give You

My sincerity's purity.

My Lord, I am ready.

My heart is ready

And my life is ready.


26.

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

I am offering You

My heart's love-bouquet,

And You are blessing me

With Your Eternity-Heart's

Open Door.


27.

My Lord Supreme,

My Beloved Supreme,

Your Vision tells me

That my name is Madal,

The God-dreamer.

Your Compassion tells me

That my name is Chinmoy,

The God-seeker.

Your Illumination tells me

That my name is Sri Chinmoy,

The God-lover.

Your Perfection tells me

That my name is Guru,

The God-server.

And Your Satisfaction tells me

That my name is Gratitude,

The God-knower.


28.

My Lord Supreme,

My Beloved Supreme,

What is a miracle?

A miracle is something

That the finite cannot accomplish

By itself,

But that the Infinite can easily do

In and through the finite.

I am the finite.

You are the infinite.

I am gratitude sleepless.

You are Compassion breathless

And deathless,

Plus unconditional,

Unconditional,

Unconditional.


29.

My Lord Supreme,

Do grant me the capacity

To be a sleeplessly

Self-giving child

Of Yours.


30.

My Lord Beloved Supreme,

This morning I am determined

To accomplish something

Impossible.

At this very moment

I shall start counting one by one

Seven good qualities

In my most deplorable enemy.

My Lord,

I desperately need

Your Help.


31.

My Lord Beloved Supreme,

This is a day off for me

From trying to fool You.

Today I shall only

Devotedly and soulfully

Count and see

How many Compassion-Eyes

And how many

Forgiveness-Hearts

You have for me.


32.

My Lord, my Lord,

I am engulfed in the flames

Of doubt, fear, worry and anxiety.

Prayerfully I invoke You,

Soulfully I implore You

To come to me and save me!


33.

My Lord, my only Lord,

It is I who have allowed myself

To be whipped by unwillingness,

And now I am dumbfounded

By the ruthless threats

Of giant doubts.

My Lord, save me,

Save my existence-life on earth!


34.

My Lord Supreme,

Out of Your infinite Bounty

Do grant me

The blessingful capacity

To choose immediately

My faithful heart

Over my doubtful mind

Every day, every hour,

Every minute and every second

Of my life.


35.

My Beloved Supreme,

With the purity of my inner eye

And the sincerity of my outer eyes

I wish to cry sleeplessly

For You, only for You.


36.

My sweet Lord Supreme,

Now that I am absolutely certain

That my love for You

Is genuine and unconditional,

I wish to forget once and for all

Even my last stumbling dance

With uncertainty, incapacity

And unwillingness

When I could not make

My unconditional surrender

To You.


37.

My Eternity's Lord Supreme,

Today You have made me

A pioneer-citizen

Of the transcendence-delight-world.

May my ever-climbing

Gratitude-heart-tree

Someday, at Your choice Hour,

Touch Your ever-descending

Golden Feet!


38.

My dear Lord, my sweet Lord,

My Absolute Lord Supreme,

As Your unconditional

Compassion-Ocean

Is far beyond my comprehension,

Even so, alas,

It seems my conscious love

For the temptation-volcano

Is far beyond Your Comprehension.


39.

My Beloved Supreme,

Could You spare a moment?

I shall be eternally grateful to You

If You powerfully put

Your Purity-Handcuffs

Around my impurity-mind.


40.

My Lord Supreme,

When I tell You

That I have been thinking of You,

I sincerely feel that I am offering You

A piece of good news.

My Lord Supreme,

When You tell me

That You have been thinking of me,

I immediately feel

That I have made

Tremendous progress

In my life of aspiration,

And I clearly see

That my life's transformation-goal

Is not a far cry,

But is within my easy reach.


41.

My Lord Supreme,

I have only two friends:

Your Compassion-Eye

And Your Forgiveness-Heart.

"My child,

I also have only two friends:

Your morning's smiling face

And your evening's singing heart."


42.

My Lord,

I am ashamed

Of my lethargic body.

"But, My child,

I am proud

Of your strong body."


43.

My Lord,

I am ashamed

Of my aggressive vital.

"But, My child,

I am proud

Of your sleepless vital."


44.

My Lord,

I am ashamed

Of my suspicious mind.

"But, My child,

I am proud

Of your searching mind."


45.

My Lord,

I am ashamed

Of my impure heart.

"But, My child,

I am proud

Of your self-giving heart."


46.

My Lord,

I am ashamed

Of my insecure life.

"But, My child,

I am proud

Of your perfection-dreaming life."


47.

My Lord Supreme,

I am sure that You are

Extremely happy today,

For I have finally dethroned

My life's ego-king.

"My child,

I am more than happy,

More than proud

And more than satisfied.

But now you have to do

Something else for Me.

Soulfully, devotedly

And cheerfully,

You have to become another God!"


48.

My Lord, my sweet Lord,

My Supreme Lord,

I do know that my life's

Unconditional surrender to You

Is fast asleep.

But I clearly see that my heart's

Most sincere gratitude to You

Is wide awake.


49.

My Lord, my Lord, my Lord,

I may not know

What Your Compassion-Eye

Looks like,

And I may not know

What Your Forgiveness-Heart

Feels like,

But I do know

That You have been

Sleeplessly and eagerly waiting

For only one perfection-cry

From my heart

And for only one satisfaction-smile

From my life.
