Imagination has power.
Imagination is power.
Therefore, be sure to have
A good and elevating imagination

– Sri Chinmoy


Imagination
Is birthless and deathless.
Its power
Is inexhaustible.

– Sri Chinmoy


Imagination does not
Care for reason.
Reason does not
Care for imagination.
The poet in me cries
For imagination-wings.
The philosopher in me cries
For reason-sword.

– Sri Chinmoy

I need imagination,
I need inspiration,
I need aspiration.
Imagination I need
To invite God.
Inspiration I need
To love God.
Aspiration I need
To serve God.

Imagination

Imagination, O imagination! How do I use my imagination?
I use my imagination to forget my past failures.
I use my imagination to brave my present challenges.
I use my imagination to welcome my future dawn.
I use my imagination to touch and feel my Lord’s Compassion-Feet.
I use my imagination to drink deep my Lord’s Nectar-Heart.
I use my imagination to see my Lord’s Vision-Eye.
I use my imagination to touch my Lord’s Assurance-Arms.
I use my imagination to become an exact prototype of my Lord’s Heaven-Beauty.
I use my imagination to become a co-sharer of my Lord’s earth-responsibility.
What is my imagination? My imagination is the harbinger of my aspiration-tree.
What is my aspiration? My aspiration is the builder of my realisation-palace.
What is my realisation? My realisation is my Lord’s and my oneness-song.

– Sri Chinmoy

Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

EINSTEIN

Anatole France comes one step ahead and makes bold to say: “To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything.” Verily, Tagore, the Master-poet of modern India, was the emblem of an all-fulfilling imagination.
