Knowing my restless heart, You came close to me
You know the unsettled emotions of (the river) of my heart
(And) So You drew me near You

Please do not keep any distance,
You have tied me (microcosm) in Your love.
Oh the vast cosmic-ocean, you have set free the droplet
wrapped in Your love.

I do not fear the defeat
You are the summation of all universes and all qualifications
Endless, infinite, You are the essence of all essences
You have enlightened me with this truth.

You make the universe dance in Your lila
Far and near, in various notes of music,
And within the flow of songs
You make the universe dance.

Forgetting all differentiations, opening doors of heart
Constantly moving forward, forgetting fear and shyness
(The universe dances).

This universe is the drama of your lila
The improbable happens, and the probable fails
(It is) Useless to cry, and useless to plead
All is but decorated within the vast cosmic acting.

Nabo borshe nabo harshe bethar sriti jay je shore

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.

Eshe chhile tumi probhu, amar mone shongopone,

Oh Parampurusha You came in my heart,
secretly and in privacy
flooding my being with cognition
dancing it in multitudes of colors.

The universe swings (dances) as He makes it swing
The universe forgets itself, as He sways it
Moving forward
like an eternal song in the distant sky.

(None) can forget that swinging (dance)
like a bright lovely wrapper
forgetting all painful pangs
bringing (peaceful) cognition to hearts.

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
