My heart-temple

1.

My aspiration-temple,

My aspiration,

The bloom and the blossom

Of my God-realisation.


2.

In the outer life

You make great sacrifices

To build a temple.

Similarly, in the inner life,

You can offer daily

Your inspiration, aspiration

And dedication

To make your body

A perfect temple

Of the Supreme.


3.

Each temple

Is a special world of God's.

Every day

In the morning,

At noon and in the evening,

It broadcasts all the news,

But only about God.


4.

You may forget

Anything you want to,

But never forget

The sunlit path

That leads to

Your heart-temple.


5.

God is waiting

In His timeless Temple

To welcome you

And your heart-flames.


6.

I can have abundant peace

If I can ring

My heart's temple bell

Every day

Without fail.


7.

I can have abundant peace

If I can sit

At my heart's temple shrine

And pray and meditate

Every day.


8.

If there is obedience,

Then we are bound to hear

The bell ringing

In our temple heart.


9.

May my heart ring

Sleeplessly and breathlessly,

Like the most sacred

Temple bell.


10.

My Lord,

True, I devotedly enjoy

Your Presence

Everywhere,

But I love Your Presence

In my heart-temple most.


11.

If you are on the spiritual path,

Then at every moment

Try to live inside

God's Heart-Temple,

Which is your only home.


12.

May my heart-temple-bell

Ring every day

As loudly as possible

To awaken

My dormant inner life.


13.

Mine is a hallowed

Heart-temple.

Here I sing,

Here I pray,

Here I meditate

And here in silence

I converse

With my Lord Beloved Supreme.


14.

Smaller than the smallest

May be the outer temple

Where every day I go

To worship my Lord.

But larger than the largest

Is my inner temple

Where every day I go

To pray and meditate

With my aspiration-cry

And dedication-smile

To become another God.


15.

Will you believe,

Can you believe,

That my Beloved Supreme

Loves the blue-gold flames

Of my heart-temple

Infinitely more

Than He loves anything else

In His entire creation?


16.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!

Please, please accept

My heart's gratitude-tears.

Today you have given me the key

To open my heart-temple door

Every morning

And every evening

To pray and meditate.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!


17.

Where is your temple?

Is it not in your daily life?


Where is your shrine?

Is it not in your daily life?


Where is your duty?

Is it not in your daily life?


Where is your God?

Is He not in your daily life?


Who is God?

He who sings the song

Of self-transcendence

At each hush-gap.


18.

I dance in all my being,

Inside the blessingfully

Hallowed temple

Of the cosmic gods.


19.

His body-temple offers

Purity's smile.

His vital-temple offers

Agility's smile.

His mind-temple offers

Sincerity's smile.

His heart-temple offers

Humility's smile.

His soul-temple offers

Luminosity's smile.

And he himself offers

Perfection's smile.


20.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!

May my life be

My heart-temple-beauty

And

My soul-shrine-fragrance.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!


21.

Do not interfere with God.

Let Him become

A regular Visitor

To your heart-temple.


22.

It seems humanity's

Perfection-satisfaction-temple

Will always remain

Under construction.


23.

Who can build his life's

Dedication-temple

Without his heart's

Aspiration-foundation?


24.

Develop your inner

Confidence-power.

You will be able to become

A perfect builder

Of God's manifestation-temple

On earth.


25.

I love my divinity's heart-temple.

It is there that I never fear

The thunder of the doubt-war.


26.

Heavenly Father,

Awaken my heart,

Ignite my age-long darkness,

Fill my temple of light

With Your Fragrance-Beauty.


27.

I showed God

My heart's temple.

God immediately blessed me

With His Compassion-Eye

And Satisfaction-Heart

And asked me to install them

In my heart-temple.


28.

Only a purity-heart

Is permitted to pray

In the soul's silence-temple.


29.

When I wish to pray,

I enter into the temple

Of Eternity.


When I wish to meditate,

I enter into the sky

Of Infinity.


When I wish to realise,

I enter into the sun

Of Immortality.


30.

O lovers of goodness,

You are the students

Of God's secret and sacred

Temple-school.


31.

Unless you have

Secured your place

In the sacred temple

Of timeless time,

How will you appreciate

The Silence-Vision

And sound-creation

Of God?


32.

The temple of silence

Can tell me

How earth-perfection

Can come into existence.


33.

The sovereignty of love

Nobody disputes.

The sovereignty of love

Is perfection-manifestation.

The sovereignty of love

Is the God-shrine

In his vision-temple,

In his earth-bound, sweet

Immortal Height.


34.

If I do not see You

In my body-temple,

Why do I live inside my body,

O Lord?

If You truly abide

In Your entire creation,

Then is there any place

Where You can remain

Unseen and invisible?

Alas, I have not kept

My heart-eye

Open to see You.

Therefore, I see You not

Anywhere.


35.

My Lord's Compassion-Eye

And Forgiveness-Feet:

These are the only things

I keep

Inside my heart's

Gratitude-temple.


36.

God is a Sweetness-Whisper

And not a loudness-trumpet

Inside your heart-temple.


37.

May my heart rise

Like incense-prayer

To the highest God-Temple.


38.

May each breath of my heart

Help me turn my life

Into a God-temple.


39.

Needed: a sincerity-mind-bud

To enter into

The outer temple.


Needed: a purity-heart-blossom

To enter into

The inner temple.


40.

Everybody must walk

Through the heart-temple

To arrive at God's Palace.


41.

When you enter into

God's Heart-Temple,

What does God do?

He does only one thing:

He begs you and begs you

Only to smile.


42.

God comes not

To brick-stone-temples.

He frequents only

Heart-devotion-breath-temples.


43.

May time be

My God-worshipping

Heart-temple-builder.


44.

Every day

In my heart-temple

I drink the Foot-wash

Of my Beloved Supreme.


45.

I do hurt God's Eye

When I do not worship

And treasure

God's Feet

Inside my heart-temple.


46.

I see God's Eye

Every day

Inside the temple-purity

Of my heart.


47.

We must all obey God

In the heart-temple

Of self-offering.


48.

Simplify your life-temple.

Purify your heart-shrine.

Lo, your Lord Beloved Supreme

Is singing and dancing

With enormous joy and pride.


49.

Divinity's infinite Joy

Is found only

In the temple of silence.


50.

Our life's readiness

Brings us to

The God-Temple.


51.

My soul always wants

My heart, mind, vital and body

To be in the temple

Of selfless activities.


52.

My Lord Supreme

Builds a peace-temple

Inside each purity-thought

Of my mind

And each aspiration-cry

Of my heart.


53.

It is only

When I leave my mind

Outside my heart-temple

That I am allowed to come in

To pray, meditate and serve.


54.

I am praying

To my Lord Supreme

Not to allow

Even an iota of thought

To enter into my heart-temple.


55.

God's Hope, God's Love

And God's Promise

Blossom only

When I live peacefully

Inside my heart-temple.


56.

To enjoy the beauty and fragrance

Of peace,

We must sing always

Our heart-temple-songs.


57.

O my temple-heart,

Where are your

Heaven-climbing tears?

O my temple-heart,

Where are your

World-covering smiles?


58.

O my temple-purity-heart,

May my tears and smiles

Play hide-and-seek

Inside you.


59.

We must create

Our inner temples

With our heart's

Rich cries and smiles.


60.

God wants me to live

In the temple

Of aspiration, love

Devotion and surrender,

And not in the house

Of world-challenging

Competitions.


61.

You can hear God's Voice

Only in

Your silence-heart-temple.


62.

When I enter into

My heart's silence-temple,

Even before I call,

God replies.


63.

If I have anything

To be proud of in my life,

Then it is the purity

Of my heart-temple.


64.

I am so happy and proud to know

That my heart-temple is blessed

By God's Peace

And God's Delight.


65.

God wants me to strike

His largest Victory-Gong

Inside my

Aspiration-heart-temple.


66.

From time immemorial

Man has been building temples

To worship God.

But God made only one temple,

And that temple

Will forever and forever stand.

What is that temple?

Man's aspiration-heart.


67.

O seeker,

You must never violate

The rules

Of your aspiration-heart-temple.


68.

Never miss

Your morning prayer

And meditation

If you want to adorn

Your aspiration-temple-heart.


69.

Your life shall blossom

Like roses

In your heart-garden,

If you kindle the flames

In your aspiration-heart-temple.


70.

If you can keep illumining

The temple within,

God will blessingfully

And proudly

Broadcast your name.


71.

Do not carry

Your mind-bundle with you

When you enter into

Your heart-temple

To meditate and illumine

Yourself.


72.

You will be allowed to enter

Into the heart-temple

Only when you have

Radically changed your mind.


73.

Keep the body-temple

In a soulful frame

Of consciousness

To lead a goodness

And fullness-life.


74.

Where is the shrine

Of fulfilment?

Inside the temple

Of self-effacement.


75.

May my aspiration-heart-bell

Ring every morning

And every evening

Like a temple bell.


76.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!

I am fulfilling

Three supreme Commands

Of Yours:

I am loving my prayer-life.

I am loving my temple-heart.

I am loving my shrine-breath.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!


77.

God has an easy access

To every place,

Specially to our heart-temple.


78.

All those who enter into

The heart-temple

Receive aspiration-blessings

From the Lord Supreme.


79.

If you have implicit faith in God,

Then only He will invite you

To come to His Heart-Temple.


80.

In no time,

God Himself comes

To bless our souls

When they knock at God's

Temple Gate.


81.

Your Lord Beloved Supreme

Is eagerly waiting for you.

Just step inside

Your heart-temple.


82.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!

I must always remain

Inside my temple-heart

To become

A supremely choice instrument

Of Yours.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!


83.

What is my heart doing?

My heart is devotedly building

My soul's

Love-compassion-wisdom-temple.


84.

I shall keep my heart-temple

Always free from

The pretence of my mind.


85.

God wants me to have

A purity-temple

Inside my mind

And not inside my heart.

Why?

Because I already have

A purity-temple

Inside my heart.


86.

My Lord

Lives in the purity-temple

Of my heart.


87.

With my prayer-mind

And meditation-heart

I am going

To transform my life

Into a temple of God-songs.


88.

God asks my gratitude-heart

To be a collector

Of temple-heart-surrender-songs.


89.

I am progressing

Fast, faster, fastest,

Only because I pray and sing

Inside the

God-obedience-temple.


90.

Where do I actually live?

I actually live

Inside the faith-blossoms

Of my heart-temple.


91.

If you want to live

Inside your heart-temple,

Then sweep away the dust

Of the past.


92.

Discard your mind's negativity

If you want to visit

Your heart-temple.


93.

Alas, I am longing

And longing

For a temple-heart

And a purity-mind.


94.

The divinity of my soul

Is my life's temple

And my heart's shrine.


95.

To have a soulful thought

Is infinitely more significant

Than to visit

A God-worship-temple.


96.

My heart-temple welcomes

Only the seekers

Of earth's newness

And the lovers

Of Heaven's fulness.


97.

My religion

Wants me always to remain

In my heart's

Devotion-bliss-temple.


98.

My religion

Is

My God-whisper-dedication

To the heart-temple

Of humanity.


99.

My evening descends

And immediately inspires me

And energises me

To seek the way

To my heart's sacred

Hope-temple.


100.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!

May I worship You sleeplessly

And breathlessly

In my love-devotion —

Surrender-delight —

Temple-heart.

My Supreme,

My Supreme,

My Supreme!
