that mystical feeling

“Mysticism is a never-ending endeavour to find out the link between the finite and the infinite” – Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

alone

“I want to be alone with You, oh Infinite One
I know that you surround me from all directions, but still I grow tired of searching for you
you are present in the surging waves of the ocean
you are there in both the silence and the noises of the forest
on every step of the path you are with me, in a calm and tranquil state
in the clear blue skies and in the groups of star clusters, in forests, gardens and in the sweet fragrance of flowers
amidst all that is known and all that is unknown you remain ever peaceful
you have captured all of my heart
you have filled it with a ray of hope
this home was lost in darkness, but then you filled it with light
why then have you kep m ebound within the world of limitedness
the petals of my mind were absorbed with your sweet nectar of love
why then do imperfections remain, in this exchange of consciousness
you have given the moonlight and the flowers blossom, but why did you not come yourself?
you drenched my mind with devotion but remained distant, but why did you not come within my reach?
you are clear as the morning sun, the color of the dawn is created by you,
all of the qualities of this universe are your qualities, but why do you still remain unseen
smile sweetly, oh flute player, from within,  do not stay away from me any longer”

Who are you?

Prabhat Samgiit #65

You came close,
but You did not say
who You are,
who You are.

In love, You gave me Your all
but You did not say who I am.
The flower that blooms in the garden
knows not what it is.

In the magic of melodies,
the mind dances
but does not know why.

With the smile of the moon,
the tides flow
but do not know why.

In this universal sport,
day and night,
You vibrate Your rhythm,
but who are You?

moving along the path

“O Lord, You have marked the line of light, in which unknown past, I do not know.
You made a path, treading on which, I move accepting You as my goal.
I move forward untiringly, keeping the desideratum in the front.
Ignoring the resistances and obstructions, I always pull the distant entities close.
When the journey commenced, I do not know, but this much I know that it is my sa’dhana’, the ultimate spiritual effort.
I do not accept anything other than my iis’t’a, the supreme goal and my sweetness I bring for Him.”

Prabhat Samgiit #2244

My polar star

shooting falling stars

I have made You the polar star of my existence;
never again can I lose my way in the 
voyage of life.

Wherever I go, You are always there to
shower your benefience all around me. Your face
is ever present before my mind’s eyes.

If I lose sight of You even for a moment, I
almost lose my mind.

Whenever my heart is about to go astray, just
a glance of You makes it feel ashamed of itself.

~Rabindranath Tagore

O my soul (Rumi)

“O my souls,
I searched in you
From end to end,
But I found nothing
Except The Beloved!
O my soul,
You might as well go ahead
And call me a blasphemer
Cause I’m going to say it out-loud:
O my soul
You are actually The Beloved!”
~Rumi
