A Man I Know Of

Mohanji, kriya intensive in Bosnia 2019 (17)

There is a man I know of,
who works tirelessly every moment,
he gives all he has, and then some more,
touches many a heart which is open,
Is he a reality, the mind questions,
but there is no mistaking his actions!

There is a man I know of,
who empowers all those who look to him,
often with his own flesh and blood,
with no thought of its effect on his own resources,
how is he made this way, I often wonder,
because there is no logic to his generosity!

There is a man I know of,
who shines bright like a thundering lighthouse,
without a care for the fate of his safety,
just so he can guide the tossing ships,
lost in the darkness of the stormy seas called life.

There is a man I know of,
my heart swells up when I think of his nature,
I feel sad and happy at the same time,
for I know he will go unnoticed by many,
until, all we have is his legends.

There is a man I know of,
and I am honoured to have met him in person,
for time can do what it wants with him,
but I know I will find him forever,
in the deepest corner of myself.

Grant Me Your Grace

devotional poem, prayer, grant me your grace
I’m only human caught in this trap of my mind
Mohanji Guru
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am my Guru
Is a soul seeking Your love
Show me the way back home
Show me a way into the silence
For that is all I wanna be
Master grant me Your grace
Beloved master for my sake, teach me Your ways
To become like You
And follow Your example
One step at a time
Beloved master
That’s all I’m asking from You.
Just give me the strength
Papa Mohanji
To do every day what I have to do.
Yesterday is gone
But today is my hope
And tomorrow may never be mine.
Lord help me today, show me Your way
Beloved master
One step at a time I will take
Do You remember, master when You spoke to me
You told me You know my heart
Sometimes I am in pain master
But Your words have graced me
What can I say
Thank You my dear Mohanji

The Urge of the Soul

devotional poem, kneeling prayer

Oh beloved master
I knock at Your beloved heart again
listening to your satsangs 
brings out the best in me

Your profound truth marries
my very existence
Your message plays
the music of love
the soul becomes the dancer
lost in the symphony of this divine delight

of pure bliss
the soul opens like
a thousand-petal lotus
giving of His perfumes
just to see Your face
help me rise above

The mind’s limitations
emotions that imprison
my freedom
merge me into the oneness of Your love

Guru you have lifted
my thoughts into freedom
the seed of longing
has been planted firmly
into the beloveds heart

My Heart in the Guru’s Love

Mohanji 10

Oh beloved Mohanji
Your kind and gentle voice
Whispers softly into my ears
Reminding me of who I am

Your love has infused
My cells with grace
My heart is burning intensely
I am saturated with bliss
The soul has been nurtured
By Your never ending love

Every breath is in Your name
Every utterance is in Your will
Your teachings are the rarest
Jewels in this world

Your presence brings
Happiness in this world
Satisfaction to the heart
You gave me hope through
My depressed state of mind
You have conquered the mind
Only to teach us Your inner wealth
Jai Mohanji
