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.




Tomare deke chhi

Calcutta April 29, 1986


Tomare deke chhi tomare cheye chhi
Tumi chhada kichhu na jani
Monone mete chhi bhalobeshe chhi
Bishshe shudhui tomare mani

Tomari bhabher srote ami bhashigo
Tomari kurubinda te nachigo
Tumi shindhu ami bindu
Tomari priti more rekhe chhe tani
Tumi chadda kichhu…

Ushna ulkaghate korokapate
Dokhina shomirone jyotsna rate
Morme bhashe dikboloye hashe
Tomari giti omrito bani
Tumi chhada kichhu…

I call you, I desire you alone, I know none else.
My mind intoxicated in Your love, only understands You.

I have been swept in the floods of Your thoughts, dancing in Your desire.
You are the infinite ocean I am Your droplet, Your love binds me eternally.

In the showering of the fierce meteors and violent hailstorm
In the cool comforting winds of a full moon light
Your song and nectar of sweet voice, floats my heart away towards smiling horizon.

Shabar adale lukaye porile, bichitro tabo liila-share

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.

Jhonjhabate ghurni baye, tumi eshe chhile

Moner mukure chhonde shure, amare jagiye dile
Ami takiye chhilum, ami ghumiye chhilum.

Otite shab kichhu bhule gye chhi,
notun ushar pane cheye dekhe chhi
Porano diner kotha, harano sritiro betha,

Ami ghumiye …

Dhire dhire kachhe eshe kotha kohile,
moner gohon kone probesh korile
Modhumoy she bhabona, dutimoy she chetona,
tate nije bheshe gelum.
Ami ghumiye …

You came in the midst of stormy scary winds
I was asleep (though).
You awakened me, coming in my mind with music and rhythms
I was staring, I was asleep.

Forgetting everything of the past, I look forward to the new dawn
Story of the past and memories of the lost days
All have swept away.

Slowly You came near me, and told me the story
You entered the deep recesses of mind.
That sweet feeling, that bright cognition
Only with that (memory) have I swept myself away.

Ketoki keshoro mohakashe bhashe

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.

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.
