Part I — Soulful tributes

1.

You are the most beloved
Of the chosen few
To be garlanded
By Father-God in Heaven
And Mother-God on earth
For your supremely unparalleled contributions
Towards changing the face and fate
Of the suffering world-community.

2.

You are your soul's
Transcendental summit.
You are your heart's
Universal door.
You are your mind's
Invincible courage.
You are your life's
Sleepless sacrifice.

3.

Two Germanys have emptied
Their streaming tears
And blinding fears
Inside your vastness-oneness-heart.

4.

You are a supreme optimist.
Quite often you take the risk of losing.
But your Inner Pilot
Every day helps you win the victory-banner
In the battlefield of life.

5.

There comes a time
When you desperately need everybody.
But do they all come?
Unfortunately not!

Only your confidence comes.
It comes to the fore,
And it guides and leads you
To the Golden Shore.

6.

Not one but many
Most significant lessons
All human beings
Are learning from you.

To name only a few:
Never too late
To do the right thing;
Never too late
To be the right person;
Never too late
For the transformation of the mind,
For the satisfaction of the heart
And for the perfection of human life.

7.

Yours is the mind
That never suffers
From determination-decay.

Yours is the heart
That refuses to hear
The whispers of failure-night.

Yours is the life
That never falls
Into the abysmal abyss of self-pity.

8.

Peace-hunger
Is your inner name.
Peace-server
Is your outer name.

9.

You are telling
Each and every citizen
Of the world
That what we desperately need
Is inner grace
And not limitless space.

10.

In God's supreme
Satisfaction-Directory
Your compassion-height
And justice-light
Are listed first.

11.

You are the tallest pillar
Of earth-transformation.
You are the brightest light
Of Heaven-manifestation.

12.

The crying heart of humanity
Desperately needs you.
The smiling eye of Heaven
Proudly blesses you.

13.

Every day
You sail your confidence-boat
Across your life-river.

14.

Every day
The seeker-sprinter-heart in you
Speedily and gloriously
Crosses the delight-finish-line.
