My Rose-Road. My Lotus-Home

1.

My rose-road.

My lotus-home.


2.

The rose-smile

of the West

I have.


3.

The lotus-tears

of the East

I am.


4.

The beauty

of a rose

purifies my

mind-jungle.


5.

The fragrance

of a rose

beautifies my

heart-garden.


6.

In the morning,

the roses

are the lightning smiles

of my soul.


7.

In the evening,

the roses

are the bleeding tears

of my heart.


8.

When I see a rose

with my aspiration heart,

I immediately feel

that I am

very close to God.


9.

When I see a rose

with my dedication life,

I spontaneously feel

that I am

a choice child of God.


10.

May my

heart-rose

never be

surrounded by

my mind-thorns.


11.

Each rose petal

is at once

the eagerness of my heart

and the enthusiasm

of my life.


12.

Thorns do their duty

powerfully:

they protect the roses.


13.

Roses do their duty

blessingfully:

they liberate the thorns


14.

The purity life

a rose has.


15.

The divinity breath

a rose is.


16.

Indeed,

a rose and a lotus

are extremely beautiful,

but the gratitude-tears

of our hearts

are infinitely more beautiful.


17.

Each rose has

three special names:

God's Vision-Eye,

God's Compassion-Heart,

God's Satisfaction-Life.


18.

The outer rose

blesses my eyes

immediately.


19.

The inner rose

illumines

my heart

sleeplessly.


20.

Unlike human beings,

no rose needs

qualification or

recommendation.


21.

Each rose

is a

master-key

to God's Heart-Kingdom.


22.

My desire-mind

has no access

to my heart-garden.


23.

My aspiration heart is

far beyond the snare

of my mind-forest.


24.

When I pray,

I become

a hope-fountain rose.


25.

When I meditate,

I become

a promise-mountain rose.


26.

Twice my stupidity

reigns supreme:

once when

I look for a rose

inside my

mind-desert,

and once when

I neglect to look

for a rose

inside my heart-garden.


27.

My mind's

doubt-weight

I lose completely

the moment I enter

into my heart's rose-garden.


28.

O my lotus-heart,

only because of you

I see God's smiling Face

everywhere.


29.

O my lotus-heart,

because of

your exquisite fragrance,

I am able to become

a God-dreamer.


30.

My heart-garden

deeply enjoys

the company of

two guests:

compassion and sympathy.


31.

As beauty and fragrance

are inseparable,

even so my heart-lotus

and my soul-breath

are inseparable.


32.

Alas,

will my Indian heart

ever be as pure

as an Indian lotus?


33.

Alas,

will my Indian heart

ever be able to see

the compassion-beauty

of an Indian lotus

in each human being?


34.

Each lotus

is the

fondest child,

greatest pride

and sweetest smile

of an Indian goddess.


35.

The discovery

of my

Indian heart:

no Indian lotus,

no Indian goddess.


36.

My heart lotus tells me

that I am not

my mind's dark and

starless night.


37.

My heart-lotus tells me

that I am

my soul's

illumination-adorer.


38.

Each petal

of my heart-lotus

reveals a unique message

from the Beyond.


39.

Each petal

of my heart-lotus

receives

a special boon from

God's Compassion-Eye.


40.

Each petal

of my heart-lotus

is a humble prayer

of my heart.


41.

My mind's

ingratitude-weeds

disappear

the moment

I enter into

my heart's lotus-garden.


42.

The lotus-life

sings

inside

my tearful heart-nest.


43.

The lotus-life

dances

inside

my blissful

soul-kingdom


.

44.

My lotus-heart bloom

expedites

the arrival of God's Hour.


45.

I call it

my lotus-life.

God calls it

my heart's purity-breath.


46.

The

aspiration heart-lotus

knows

no venom-desire-fruits.


47.

My

aspiration heart-lotus

loves me immensely.

Therefore I do not

have to go

to the desire-market

anymore.


48.

A great

mind-tower

is empty

of both flower-beauty

and flower-fragrance.


49.

A pure

heart-flower

is the height of beauty

and the depth

of fragrance.


50.

Today

is my

today's

hope-flower.


51.

Tomorrow

will be

my tomorrow's

promise-fruit.


52.

God the Lover

and God the Beloved

sleeplessly love to play

hide and seek

inside humanity's

aspiration-garden.
