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

Mohanji, the Formless One

Mohanji 9

I pray that You guide me
Against the storms of life
I pray that You make me like You
Through the journey of life

Help me dissolve all my expectations
Let my ego die in the quick sand of life
Nothing should be the obstacle of separation
Rise me above all the limitations of the mind

Help me to never stop writing to You
Failure will come to play a part of my life
But let the divine awareness take place
In my heart

I will rise like the setting sun
And be like the Moon hidden
Behind the dark clouds
I will find my way above the clouds
Only to whisper You name in delight

Beautiful form, oh beloved master
Oh formless one
I’m waiting for thee
Allow my rebirth into freedom

Bathe me into bliss
Strengthen my faith
So, so that devotion
Does not waver
Oh beloved master
I am in eternal delight

Mohanji, Make a Way for Me

Devotional poem - Mohanji Make a Way for Me

Tears rolling down my cheeks
Awaiting Your presence
Heavenly Father knows that
Your child awaits thee
I seek shelter in Your infinite grace
My soul craves for Your darshan
Mohanji recuse me from my dilemma

I am empty without Your love
I come with nothing but my true self
I offer all that I have at Your lotus feet
I seek nothing but Your love

My heart is calling out to you
Hear me papa Mohanji
In the midst of my suffering
And turmoil
My heart plays the music
Of love for You

My heart still longs for You
The flame of love burns
ever so brightly for You
Your majestic face
Can never be forgotten
From my mind heart and soul

Your presence is the medicine
For my soul and my troubled life
I long and yearn for this priceless treasure
To behold the glory of your presence
I just want to hug You Father
For that is all I want
Papa Mohanji
