A fourteen-hour Peace Concert

1.

The King of Heart-Smiles
Blessingfully taught
Everybody's heart to smile.

2.

One hundred and fifty
Running, climbing and diving
Music-blooming, music-blossoming
And music-immortalising instruments.

3.

Lord Supreme blissfully came
And powerfully restored
Everybody's aspiration-heart-beauty.

4.

This is the era of peace-freedom-lovers
And not of world-renunciation cave-dwellers.

5.

This moment we became
The fragrance of our hearts.
Next moment we became
The beauty of our eyes.

6.

All our mind-questions were stilled
Inside the poise of our hearts.

7.

The born questioners became
Perfect peace-dreamers and peace-lovers.

8.

The mind-doubt-edifice
Was utterly dismantled.

9.

The mind had no more
Disobedience-stories.
It became all obedience-song.

10.

The fourteen hours
Became the radiance
Of fourteen golden years.

11.

Self-glorification-desire became
God-Satisfaction-aspiration.

12.

God whispered beautiful Hope-Flowers
And powerful Promise-Fruits.

13.

From now on, we shall be
Full-time God-lovers
And not remain
Part-time God-lovers
Anymore.

14.

Our heart's gratitude-tears
Brought God
Near, nearer and nearest.

15.

God and God's Hour were both eager
To successfully knock at our heart's door.

16.

The dictatorial mind
Unconditionally surrendered
To the jovial heart.

17.

This time God cradled
Our souls and hearts
Together.

18.

Our peace-starved hearts
Feasted on
God's Compassion-Rainbow.

19.

God Himself taught us
How to cry breathlessly
For Him.

20.

The undivine, hostile forces
Of the mind
Were threatened and shattered
By our purity-flooded hearts.

21.

Lip-gratitude we were.
Now
Soul-gratitude we are.

22.

We not only remembered the joy
Of our past aspiration-heart,
But also, surprisingly, excelled it.

23.

Triumphs of the soul
Were heralded
From the start to the finish.

24.

Each seeker-heart
Became the fountain-beauty-smile
Of delight.

25.

The heart-sea-swimmers
Were playing with
The fulness-happiness-waves
Of the soul.

26.

The heart's gratitude-tears
Immensely increased
The life's devotion-intensity.

27.

Our aspiration-hearts became
A true expression
Of happiness-panorama.

28.

The battle against our mind's
Unwillingness-barrage
Forever ended.

29.

Our hearts devoured
The Silence-Bliss
Of God-Beauty.

30.

Our meditation stretched
Our life's dedication-arms
Far and wide.

31.

Unreservedly we enjoyed
The fulness-fragrance
Of our soul-delight.
Indeed, a galaxy
Of silence-blossom-hearts!

32.

God Himself fed the breath
Of our aspiration-heart.

33.

The mind's long-cherished
Torrential despair
Completely stopped.

34.

We felt and we became
The ever-spreading
God-oneness-fragrance.

35.

An unconditional God-obedience-dream
Finally blossomed
Into reality.

36.

The confusion-mind
Said to the illumination-soul,
"Illumine me!
I shall be all yours."

37.

The invisible Beyond
Became the visible God-Smile.

38.

The backward-jumping mind
Became the forward-racing heart.

39.

Smilingly
The ambrosia-sea
Beckoned us.

40.

While on earth,
Paradise
We unquestionably experienced.

41.

God-Ecstasy-Reality
Captured our entire being.

42.

We entered the deathless birth
Of universal Oneness-Reality.

43.

The God-seeker in us
And the man-inspirer in us
Together sang and danced.

44.

The good-for-nothing mind
Was completely transformed
Into a good-for-everything
God-Satisfaction.

45.

Life was no longer
An idle experiment.
Life became
The most precious self-discovery.

46.

The mountain-height-dreams
Of ours
Became fountain-ambrosia-realities.

47.

This moment we were
The pagoda of God-Hope.
Next moment we became
The shrine of God-Promise.

48.

I am no longer a citizen
Of a God-failing universe,
But a citizen of
A God-fulfilling universe.

49.

The simplicity of spirituality
Manifested as
The sublimity of Divinity.

50.

Soulfully we smiled and smiled
Because of the success-surprise
Of our heart.

51.

Proudly God danced and danced
Because of the progress-astonishment
Of our life.

52.

Our climbing hearts
Discovered a direct route
To God's Pride-flooded Heart.

53.

No, not even an iota of fog!
It was all sunshine
Bright, brighter, brightest.

54.

Each instrument brought us
Nearer and nearer
To the Golden Shore.

55.

Each instrument became
A prayer-dawn
And a meditation-eve.

56.

God-Guest came,
And we all welcomed Him
Inside our heart-home.

57.

Our life's oneness
With the music of the heart
Clearly and distinctly proved to be
The shortest path to peace.

58.

Each song quickened
Our aspiration-pace.

59.

Our cheerful God-surrender
Became the sweetness
Of universal melody.

60.

The perfect lustre of a purity-heart
Was clearly visible
From the start to the finish
Of the music-adventure.

61.

God declared our happiness
To be the best friend
Of humanity's future.

62.

Ours was a non-stop conversation
With God's Satisfaction-Delight.

63.

From today on,
Each member of the audience
Will no longer suffer
From an inner bankruptcy.

64.

The ecstasy-inundated tears
Of our inner child
Bathed us thoroughly.

65.

A sudden yet permanent entrance
Into the happiness-highway,
Indeed!

66.

Each breath became
A prayer-flower
Of sweetness-beauty.

67.

The music of the heart
For which a seeker's life hungers
Was sumptuously fed.

68.

God gave us —
Our eagerness and cheerfulness —
Not only His Blessing,
But also His Pride.

69.

God's Peace-Shore
Appeared before our heart-boat
As soon as the boat started sailing.

70.

The mind promised itself
That from now on
It would never keep peace
At a sceptical distance.

71.

God blessed our heart's progress report
With His Heart's transcendental
Satisfaction-Crown.

72.

Finally
The mind subscribed cheerfully
And unconditionally
To the heart's monumental faith.

73.

Everything came up
To God's desired Standard.

74.

The unwillingness-mind
Lost all its strength,
Only to become
The ocean-power of willingness.

75.

The instruments triumphantly became
Full of surprises and marvels.

76.

Previously I was always eager
To tell God everything
About myself.
This time, to my extreme joy,
God Himself was all eagerness
To tell me everything
About Himself.

77.

A journey of the heart,
Par excellence!

78.

Quite unusual!
Even my mind loved the music
From the beginning to the end.

79.

Each musical instrument
Was a new discovery
For my eagerness-heart.

80.

Even my vital forgot to play
Its restlessness-role!
It listened to the music
Without interruption.

81.

My heart revealed
Its extraordinary inner speed.

82.

My mind revealed
Its extraordinary outer agility.

83.

The cosmic gods and goddesses
Came to pay a blessingful visit
To our peace-shrine-stage.

84.

Eternity's Peace and Infinity's Bliss
Alternately blessed
The audience.

85.

Alas, the whole experience-reality
Was the exclusive privilege
Of a few hundred!

86.

Each instrument
Extended farther and farther
Into the cosmic Beyond.

87.

My familiar instruments
And unfamiliar instruments
Sang and danced together
In perfect harmony.

88.

Newness and uniqueness
Unreservedly came down
From their respective realms.

89.

I clearly saw my heart
And the hearts of the audience
Flying fast, very fast,
Towards the Feet of God.

90.

Eagerness and cheerfulness
Together blossomed
With equal swiftness.

91.

The human mind,
Nebulous in its faith,
Was transformed into
An ocean of faith.

92.

God heavily depended
On the willingness-heart
Of the audience.
To His greatest Joy,
The audience placed the Victory's Crown
At His Feet.

93.

Negativity's darkness
Completely faded away
Right from the beginning.

94.

Each individual was fired
By the breath
Of illumining and fulfilling hope.

95.

Our human life
And its accompanying troubles
Were utterly extinguished.

96

God was resolved that we all
Should go farther and farther,
Fly higher and higher
And dive deeper and deeper.
To our own great surprise,
We gave Him complete success.

97.

The aspiration of our heart
And the Satisfaction of God's Heart
Became inseparably one.

98.

Surrender to God's Will we chose.
God's Will we became.
God whispered that His Paradise
Is here and nowhere else.

99.

The unaspiring curiosity
Came,
Only to return disappointed.

100.

From now on
Our heart will see each dawn
With a new delight.

101.

Our hearts became a treasure
High above all measure.

102.

Each song
Was an illumination-builder
Of the future.

103.

A perfect union
Of the crying earth
And the smiling Heaven!

104.

A song of life
And a dance of breath!

105.

What was needed
To become inseparably one
With the music-world
Was not an iron determination,
But a self-giving willingness.

106.

God the Supreme Musician
Came down
And left His Golden Footprints
For us to follow.

107.

God blessed us
With His Compassion-magnet,
And we offered God
Our affection-magnet in return.

108.

A peace-blossoming world
In all its grandeur!

109.

We owned two supernal possessions:
The soul-smile that glowed
And the heart-tear that sparkled.

110.

The fragrance-breeze
Of our souls
Carried us across
An infinite horizon.

111.

The peace-dove of light
Showed us the direct way
To fly
To God's Immortality-flooded Kingdom.

112.

Long before the birth of the performance,
The catastrophe of unwillingness
Was buried in the oblivion-cave.

113.

Many a time
The performer and the audience
Were wonderstruck
By God's celestial Lightning-Beauty.

114.

The human ego
Recognised at long last
Its long-cherished absurdity.

115.

Our hearts
Will no longer use the foreign word:
'Impossibility.
'

116.

The world's cynical sneer
Did not dare to near
The divine atmosphere
We all created.

117.

God blessingfully touched our hearts.
Lo, dispelled was our ignorance-dream-sleep
Sooner than at once!

118.

By virtue of our gratitude-hearts,
We unreservedly enjoyed
Our God-surrender-sweetness.

119.

The thought-free hours
Helped our hearts to soar
And our lives to roar.

120.

God Himself applauded
Our each and every
God-manifestation-service-attempt.

121.

We saw the Face
Of God's Love
And became the Heart
Of God's Peace.

122.

Our heart's teeming aspiration-flames
Frightened the earth-bound desires
Of our minds.

123.

God the Compassion abolished
Our thought-bondage-slavery.

124.

Silence infinitely increased
The beauty of my soul
And amplified
The duty of my life.

125.

We shall definitely and unquestionably
Live up to God's God-Fulfilment-Dreams
In us and through us.

126.

From now on
Ignorance-night will be compelled
To lose its secret interest
In humanity.

127.

Doubt, the bringer of sad and bad news,
Failed to find an entrance
To the heart-temple of music.

128.

The fast-approaching 21st century
Will establish the fragrance
Of the soul-music
And banish the thunderstorm-music
Of the vital.

129.

The sweetness-music of the soul
Will ultimately defeat
The very breath of vital music.

130.

Our Lord entered our heart-temple
As a Guest,
But soon became our life-Host.

131.

The sole and single criterion of Truth
Is Peace.
Peace our mind saw.
Peace our heart felt.
Peace our life became.

132.

From the strength
Of our aspiration-heart,
We unmistakably felt
That mankind would soon be ready
To herald God's supreme Victory.

133.

The mind that had craved
World-appreciation
Today longed only for
God's Satisfaction in God's own Way.

134.

The dark smoke of earth-bound desire
Was nowhere visible
In the temple of heart-music.

135.

The most significant cosmic gods
And goddesses
Came down with their
Infinity's Smile
And Immortality's Affection
To bless the climbing aspiration-hearts.

136.

The Avatars,
The spiritual Masters, too,
Of the supreme Heights
Came down to bless
The ever-memorable occasion.

137.

For the first time we saw
That time was totally against
Ignorance-night-pride
And won!

138.

Although God had so many pressing problems
To deal with,
He happily came and proudly swam
In the devotion-tears of our hearts.

139.

God Himself came down
To teach our obedience
How to keep out of
Any trouble whatsoever.

140.

Our surrender-heart
Handed our life totally over
To our Lord Beloved Supreme.

141.

To God,
We gave our very best.
To us,
His All He gave.

142.

Aspiration taught us patience.
Patience taught us faith.
Faith taught us God-discovery
And self-mastery.

143.

Every moment was a cascade
Of God-Satisfaction-opportunities.

144.

We all aspired
To go high, higher, highest
And not to acquire
Much, more, most.

145.

God's Compassion-Feet we desired,
But He gave us His Satisfaction-Heart
Instead.

146.

Our aspiration-heart-boat
Plied between
The newness-shore-beauty
And the fulness-shore-fragrance.

147.

In us was born the abiding peace
Of a oneness-world-home.

148.

In the past,
Our aspiration-heart
Had always been right
In God's Eye,
But this time His Heart declared:
"Absolutely perfect!"

149.

Swiftly God came.
Happily God stayed.
Proudly God returned.

150.

On His return Journey,
God did not go alone.
Our surrender-life and gratitude-heart
Accompanied Him.
