'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)


Walk in wonder, dear one,
Know the One in thee;
See it in the ocean,
In the leaves upon a tree.
Hear it on the thunder
of the lightning wynd.
Understand that Wonder,
The One so hard to find.
Feel it in your heartbeat,
in the deep low throb of Earth;
 gravity at your feet
dear and air upon your breath.
Walk in wonder, dear one,
Know the One in thee;
For It is One, we are One
and All is One, you see?

"The Wonder of Wonders"

Some look upon this Aatmaa as a wonder,
Another describes it as wonderful,
And others hear of it as a wonder.
Even after hearing about it, no one actually knows it.
