Asked and answered

(216)  Tumi esechile dhara diyechile

You came and let me hold You;
That event I cannot forget.
Your gentle glance—
Your gentle glance, Your gentle charm,
Coming gently and gently going.

Into the ocean of forms—
I dived into the ocean of forms;
There I found the formless jewel.
A beggar at heart—
A beggar at heart but calling You to mind,
I assumed a royal headdress.
Your divine name—
Ever chanting Your divine name,
I throbbed with that ideation.

Today, by contemplation and meditation—
By contemplation and meditation, day and night,
My prayer is realized.
