You visited me on the painful nights, but did not come to share my joys.
You could not be known by the trickery of intellect but by the tears of heart alone.

The spring brought the beauty of flowers; I prepared Items for your worship,
You could not be realized with any offerings,
but only with sincere surrender of the anguished heart.

In the frivolous playfulness and glittering, I did not seek You.
Yet I received Your grace, on the darkest night of the new moon.

Shur toronge mohono ronge, bhubone rangale ki kore

Shabar adale lukaye porile, bichitro tabo liila-share
Tumi bologo bologo aamare. shur toronge…

With the waves of music and charming colors,
How have you colored this universe?
(Oh Parampurusha) Please tell me.
With sweet formation and sweet non-compliance,
Doing liila with all. Please tell me, please tell me.

Intoxicating the creation, with moonlit night
And crimson hue in the golden morning
Offering the blossoms of champak flowers
Making all Your own, by gentle touch.
Please tell me, please tell me.

Making universe dance in your rhythms and patterns
Painting it with the rainbow colors
Hiding behind all creation with unfathomable mystery
Please tell me, please tell me.

837 Bengali Dadra

Calcutta, September 6, 1983


Tomar hiyay amar, nei ki kono sthan
Balo nei ki kono sthan
Thai jodi na thake, kothay amar tran
Balo kothay amar tran.  Tomar hiyay amar …

Birat moner odhish tumi, nei je tomar iti
Khudra bindu shamo ami, tuchha prani oti
Amay jodi sthan nahi dao, badhbe nako maan
Tomar badhbe nako maan.  Tomar hiyay amar…

Here java hiyar majhe, tumi dhrubo tara
Shiter rater barshanete, ushna prolep dhara
Shabar Iagi tumi achho, achho ami chhada
Ami chhada tumi eje, tomar apoman,
Balo tomar apoman. Tomar hiyay amar….

Is there no place for me in  your heart?
Tell me, is there no place for me?
If there is no place then tell me where would be my liberation?
Tell me, where would be my liberation?

You are the controller of the infinite mind and You are endless.
I am like an insignificant drop, like an extremely insignificant life.
If you don’t give me a place in Your heart, Your prestige will not increase.

You are the guide for all those hearts who are lost.
In a cold night you are like warmth
You are for everybody but You are without me.
The fact that You are without me is actually an insult to You.

This universe filled with color of love,
Please do not emit bitterness.
Let no one cry (in pain)
In the charming colorful smiles
Please do not disturb peace.

The morning lotus with lovely smile,
Conveys fragrance of love,
Sweetness full of lovely light
Please do not darken.

The evening star (Venus) speaks with a gentle smile
The love of all merged in all
The scent of ketaki, keshar floating away in the vast sky
Please do not hinder.

The golden dawn of my life, is it returning again?
Piercing the darkness of countless pains,
countless agonies, countless humiliations.

How many twilights, how many dawns,
how many autumn and spring nights,
how many hopes and aspirations
have all passed by, floating away in tears?

On the eastern horizon the crimson dawn smiles,
the fragrance of flowers floats in the air.
With the new delight of the newyear,
the memories of pain all vanish away.

Leaving Vrindavan
I do not go even a single step.
Whatever, wherever I see,
I will only remember Vrindavan.

Whatever may the scholars say,
Whatever may the scriptural experts critic,
Whatever may the realized persons say,
I will remain established in the sentiment of Gokula.

By the tamal trees on the river bank,
Amidst the in-comparable love of my devotees,
On the bank of the blue waters of Yamuna
I declare, I will always remain

O Lord, You are ever present in the Vrnda’vana of my mind.
During storms and thundersqalls,
You pour out a flow of nectar.

You are Lord Hari of the higher arena
But You purposely appear in the world of Gokul
To continue dancing with melody and rhythms
In numerous divine plays (liilas).

You reside both within and outside of living structures.
You provide pulsation to veins.
You fill the core of my heart with nectar.
