My Lord Beloved Supreme,
I shall no more permit
Your Heart to bleed
For my abominable misconduct.


  1. APR 38. Sao Moritz, Brazil, 12 December 1999

39

I shall not live
Between "can" and "shall".
I shall live only
Between "must" and "done".

40

Do not recline,
Do not recline!
If you recline too much,
You are bound to decline
Too soon.

God does not hesitate
To welcome my heart.
Alas, I hesitate
To welcome God's Eye.

That soon you will be excommunicated
From God's inner circle.

My heart is an open book
To both God and humanity.

God needs me
As an unconditional lover
And not
As an unsolicited adviser.

A devotion-life
Is a divine
Miracle-performer.

May my mind see all human beings
As jewels
And my heart feel all human beings
As angels.

To improve my past.
He wants me only
To build a perfect future.

My God-surrender-heart
Is
My God-Paradise-life.

My sweet Beloved Supreme,
Do give my heart the capacity
To love and adore
The golden dust of Your Feet
With every breath.


  1. APR 49. These prayers were given at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 15 December 1999.

My Supreme,
Only You, only You, only You
I can and I want to claim
As my own, very own.

My Supreme,
Please, please bring
My dead aspiration-heart
Back to life.

52

Not God-speakers
But God-lovers
Are found in God's
Remembrance-Heart-List.

53

My Lord has repeatedly told me
That there is no such thing
As a negligible mistake.
Each mistake can be fatal
In the spiritual life.

54

My Lord,
I must not fail You in any way,
Even for a single day.

55

There comes a time
When God remains absolutely silent
If He has to repeat to us
Certain soulful things
Again and again.

56

Our volcano-mind
And our tornado-vital
Can be silenced
Only by our Lord's
Compassion-flooded Eye.

57

Every day God is dying
To introduce our minds
To His Infinity's Peace.
But alas, He sadly fails.

58

A true God-lover
Is
God's universal burden-carrier.

59

Each seeker
And his gratitude-heart-tears
Must live together.

60

O seeker, do not shelter
The heart of unreadiness
And
The breath of unwillingness.

61

Love God the man,
Serve man the God.
Behold!
God the Real,
God the Universal
And
God the Transcendental
Is come.

621

If the God-surrender-summit-height
Frightens you,
Then God-realisation shall remain
A far cry.

63

I must bind my life to God's Feet
If I want my mind to escape
From the piercing
Anxiety-worry-arrows.

64

The desiring mind opens its door
To the earthly amazements.
The aspiring heart opens its door
To the Heavenly enlightenments.

65

My heart sleeplessly cries
For God's Face.
God's Heart endlessly weeps
For my embrace.

66

God tells me that
My beauty is exquisite
When I kneel
In the temple of my heart
And worship Him.

67

Only a sleeplessly and breathlessly
God-hungry heart
Is God's fondest child.

My happiness-heart fully blossoms
Only inside
My God-gratitude-heartbeat-tears.

An unconditional God-lover
Lives in the sleepless ages
Of God's Satisfaction-Delight.

A spiritual Master is
An all-illumining torch-gift
From the Father Heaven
To the Mother Earth.

The mind is chained
To a huge ignorance-bondage-rock.
Alas, the mind does not mind!

72

The day I do not love
My Lord Beloved Supreme only,
I live in my God-disobedience-inferno.

73

In every walk of life,
Enthusiasm is of supreme importance
To take a progress-step.

74

My Lord,
Please, please awaken my mind
From its darkest midnight sleep.

75

A God-surrender-life
Has to be always on time
For the fulfilment
Of God's express Will.

76

God's choice warriors
Shake hands with impossibility
With a roaring laughter.

77

Every desire-man
Is eventually forced to dance
With frustration-tragedies.

78

My Master is my life-transforming
Dreamer, lover and doer
Inside my aspiration-heart.

79

Like blind beggars
We are discarding
God's Compassion-flooded
Blessing-Love-Concern-Peace-Bliss-Gifts.

801

Each obedience-thought
Adds joy
To our inner will-power.


  1. APR 80. These prayers were given at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 18 December 1999.

81

Alas,
In man's unwillingness-mind
The entire world is fast asleep.

82

I cannot believe
That my tiny heart-cave
Is my Lord's real Satisfaction-Home.

83

Stop, my mind, stop!
Do not cast any more
Your dark
Doubt-suspicion-frustration-shadows
Upon my God-loving aspiration-heart.

84

Every day
As my gratitude-heart
Collects most devotedly
My Lord's Smiles,
Even so, my Lord's Pride-Heart
Collects most affectionately
My tears.

85

May my aspiration-heart-pilgrimage
Know no halt
Along Eternity's Road.

86

Mine is the heart
That constantly needs
Intense eagerness
To realise
My Absolute Lord Beloved Supreme.

87

My life's perfection-manifestation
Is not more of God
And less of me.
My life's perfection-manifestation
Is all in God, all with God
And all for God.

88

I am, as usual,
My life's poor God-service.
God is, as usual,
His Heart's rich Reward.

89

At long last
My heart is successful
In compelling my mind to surrender-
At long last!

901

God's Eye
Is unimaginably beautiful:
This is what I learn
From the tears of my heart.
The tears of my heart
Are extremely powerful:
This is what I learn
From God's Eye.


  1. APR 90. These prayers were given at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 19 December 1999.

91

Those who serve God
Must never swerve
From spontaneity and intensity.

92

The inquisitive mind's powerful altar
Is science.
The pure heart's sure God-discovery
Is spirituality.

93

The love divine says to me:
"My Lord is always in.
My Lord is always in.
He never goes out.
He never goes out."

94

My prayer is as deep
As my belief.
My meditation is as certain
As my Inner Captain:
God.

95

I call it my gratitude-heart.
God calls the same thing
His own Beatitude-Face.

96

My Lord Beloved Supreme
Answers only
His Heart-Home telephone calls.

97

I do not fight against
My doubting mind.
I beg my Beloved Lord Supreme
To deal with it.
He immediately does the needful.

My mind secretly measures
My heart-tears.
My Beloved Lord Supreme
Proudly treasures
My heart-tears.

Blesses the human in me.
My Lord most affectionately
Cradles the divine in me.

And I am,

God smiles and smiles and smiles
When I most powerfully bind Him
With my heart's devotion-cord.

102

I keep not even an iota
Of God-disobedience-thought
In my aspiration-heart.

A seeker without
The God-fulfilment-eagerness-
Heart-hunger
Is not a real seeker.

I love dire challenges
In my inner life,
I love.
I love great triumphs
In my outer life,
I love.

105

My Lord,
You have been living
All the time
Inside my tiny heart.
Can You not live
Before my two big eyes as well?

106

With my heart's intensity
And immensity-devotion-hunger,
I avidly devour
My Lord's Sweetness-Smiles.

107

Whenever I get an opportunity,
I look at my Lord's Feet
To awaken my mind
And enlighten my heart.

God's Heart blesses me and embraces me
In expected ways.
God's Eye blesses me and embraces me
In unexpected ways.

There can be no excess
Of my heart's devotion
To my Lord's Will.

Only a sleeplessly
God-loving heart
Is indomitable and invincible.

111

The abysmal abyss we have visited.
Now we must climb up
God's Pinnacle-Height
And have there our permanent abode.

112

Only the tears of my heart
Practise rush service
To God.

113

God fulfils my dreams
With the Beauty
Of His Eye
And the Fragrance
Of His Heart.

114

I fulfil God's Visions
With the light
Of my self-mastery
And the delight
Of my God-discovery.

115

Centuries ago
I started my pilgrimage
To God's Paradise-Feet.
I am sure at God's choice Hour
I shall succeed.

116

My happiness-heart
Never, never
Doubts God.

Editor's note

Sri Chinmoy offered these morning prayers during his visit to Brazil and Paraguay in December 1999 and January 2000. Ten different groups recited the prayers turn by turn three times, then twice, then once.
