Chanting lights a purifying flame in the heart,

 

cleansing the mind, the body, and the spirit.

 

Chanting awakens the devotion

 

that burns up all delusion

 

and brings us to rest at last

 

at the sacred feet

 

of God’s Presence.

Chanting Bliss
               

by Sanjaya

Closing eyes to other worlds, inner gaze expands and holds;

A gentle ache of heart-space waking, to places deep of Divine making.

The first notes sound to reach and probe,
Devotions sweet and pure abode,

Self-conscious bonds of earth chains shatter,
Lifting thought from clouded matter.

Rhythms pulse in spheres of light, shining out from beings bright,

God and angels join and merge, immersing all to heal and purge.

Crescendo’s ripple the Eternal ocean, soul cries deep are set in motion;

Softness descends as warm tears kiss, the
Beloved’s feet in chanting bliss.
