My heart-temple

Return to the table of contents

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!
