Below are a few small treasure, Enjoy.

BABA, true God, true son-of-God, true man
the true Virgin-birth (free of Sanskaras)
HOLY LOVE, my sweetness, my heart,
my joy, my soul-heal. Sweet BABA ,
my darling, my life, my light, my healing-oil,
my balm, my honey-drop.

BABA, let me adore you for your own sake,
who are so soft, so sweet, so dear and so lovely
that angels look on thee and are never
satisfied of the sight.

(Adapted from a tenth and eleventh century Christian prayer.)


The invisible Garland

When love herself -MEHER'S Grace- the invisibe garland & near imperceptible deluge-
hit me over the head like a country railway watertank falling apart at the seams
I was drenched
not with heavy water, effervescent LIGHT.
-the sweetest kind of rain-
Bliss tore through my portions
Ecstacy erupted up & through me
all the moss which had gathered round the wall of the rolling stone
simply burned away
only the spray from the waterfall remained
-like the SUN-
an irrepressible enigma.
