The sweetness of You

(40)  Campaka vane dakhina pavane
In the magnolia grove, on a southern breeze,
You came today with the resonance of music.
With the resonance of music You Yourself came.

The unspeakable pangs of loss—
You have made us forget all deprivation.

On the path of movement entwined with memories
Oscillating between hope and despair,
The flute of love constantly sounded—
Everything was filled with the sweetness of You.

In the flowing stream of effulgence,
In endless ways, You graciously revealed Yourself.

Baba's exposition:
You have come into this world with the resonance of music in endless ways. You have manifested Yourself in innumerable styles and forms with rhythmic sweetness and beauty. And all pangs of loss, all disappointments and weaknesses, have been forgotten. According to Your wish, because of Your unfathomable kindness, we have been able to know You, hear You, and see You in these endless ways. If You had not wanted it, how could we have attained You? What else can I call it except Your grace?
