Chinmayananda Saraswati (8 May 1916 – 3 August 1993)
Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive but to be young was very heaven
To be the Secretary of Chinmaya Mission Thanjavur was indeed a bliss
At the young age of twenty two-it was all HIS blessings still green memories!
Attended Geeta Gnana Yagnas-great spiritual experience and hence the bliss!
More than Geeta- MY six thirty means six thirty neither six twenty nine
Nor Six thirty one! My eight means neither seven fifty nine nor eight zero one!
Such a punctualist to the core not to come across any longer
My refrain in my training classes used to be a subject of discussion on this
With a quiz “Can you tell me a Barrister turned spiritual head?”
As a clue poorvashrama name started with ‘B sanyashrana name started with ‘C”!

”International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression”
Is today the Fourth June! Atrocious indeed- quite unfair position,
United Nations observance of fourth June every year.
Since Nineteen Eighty Two focusing on victims of Lebanon War!
Purpose expanded to “acknowledge the pain suffered by children
Throughout the world who are the victims of physical, mental and
Emotional abuse.Affirms the United Nation’s commitment
To protect the rights of children-future of any country!.
For the sins of elders unfair to put the innocent children to
Untold sufferings.United Nations have responsibility to
Protect them from all mishandlings – good now on the wane
Let us in our own way nurture positively children of the world!
Beautiful flowers are the manifestation of holy Mother Nature
In different shapes and scents, sizes and colors- sure man has to nurture
By watering plants and flowers every day for them to be afresh and alive
May Thirtieth today is rightly “WATER A FLOWER DAY! Let us enjoy!
Water a Flower Day observed this day all over the world happily
To keep our flowers alive, we have to water them. Water a Flower Day
Remembers us to water our flowers and give them an extra sip of water
To thank for their wonderful colors, pleasant scent and nice life!
Along the walking track in the YOUTH World of our colony a large
Number of flower plants greet and treat us all the day and for me
In the early morning three and four! Hibiscus in red, white and yellow
My most loved flower! Despite “PLUCK NOT FLOWERS” boards displayed here and there
I used to bring half a dozen occasionally to place it on God’s pictures
Much to the annoyance of my beloved wife when she was alive!
My answer to her: If I don’t do this God the creator will be annoyed
That I have no gratitude and am so selfish that I have no sense to
Repay my gratitude to HIM who blessed with HIS creation of flowers!”
Yes they are to be offered to the Creator- infact decorate with
All types of flowers a nice and great sight to see and enjoy!
Let us pluck a few flowers for God a day while watering every day!
