Jesus Within

दिल में एक महल होता है
जिस में मेरा ईशु रहता है
प्यार की दीवारों का घर
आशा शांति है मगर
जा कर भीतर देखो तो [2]

आजा आजा कहते ईशु
मेरी रानी –बहना आओ
मुझे अपना तोहफा दिखाओ[2]
मेरा तोहफा दे दो मुझको
दे दो अपने आप को
“सदा कुँवारी- शुद्ध रहो”
यह मेरा वचन है [2]

आओ मेरे महल में अब तो
दिल तुम्हे बुलाता है ,

धड़कन को पहचान लो अब तुम
साथ साथ चलके जाना है.

There's a palace in my heart
In which my Jesus lives
Walls made of Love
Hope and Peace within
But I only need to go inside
To see Him !

Jesus says-Come, come My Queen - come running
Show me your gift
Give me my gift Give yourself
"Perpetual virgin - pure Be"
This is  My Word !

Come to my palace now
My heart calls you,
Recognize the one heart-beat
We have to go walking together !

This is my first poem /song  in Hindi, inspired in prayer, when I knew relatively nothing about Christianity.  It was a moment of Grace. The Holy Spirit was my only tutor and my guide, teaching me about Jesus' love. Today  I feel amazed to even think it happened. I thank Jesus once more for His love !

This song which I could not understand fully -always sounded weird and made me laugh at the folly of love between Jesus and me.

Is the personal spiritual encounter   less than, equal to , or greater than a public Rite of consecration ? Was a public Rite necessary ? What is the difference between the private and the public moment of Grace - from Jesus' eyes ?

  1. The Personal spiritual encounter happened in private, when I was a hindu and did not know anything about christianity. To be a pure-virgin does not mean that the vocation to marriage cannot be lived in equal chastity. Purity for a virgin is more like being open to be impressed by Christ without any blocks.

    The Public rite of consecration to a life of virginity may not be greater in degree but it is a different paradigm. Firstly it ceases to be a personal affair. It becomes a legal marriage covenant symbolising the love between Christ and the Church .From virgin-bride of Christ-it makes one a spiritual mother like Virgin Mother Mary.
