Recognized but unknown

(609)  Ami tomay jani

You I do know...
I won't be able to say so.
No, no, no;
I won't be able to say so.

Even when noticed, unknown You remain;
With unknown music the veena You play.[1]

When a lotus in lake water happens to bloom,
When rolling in dust is the light of the moon,
Then slumber gets shattered with resurgence;[2]
That kindness of Yours I will never forget.

Though You are concealed, everything is just You;
From a hidden location plays Your hypnotic flute.[3]
You are but one, dressed in multiple garments,
With multiple names, in form and rhythm different.
