Hanker for the unknown

(339)  Udasii hiyate kajala rate

On pitch-dark nights, stoic is my mind;
Why does that happen to be?
Again and again, when time stands still,
My soul yearns for the unrevealed.

Where are You? You remain hidden,
Hunted throughout the seven worlds.[1]
Deeply afflicted, tears flowing,
My heart hankers to obtain Thee.

The ocean of light, the mire of gloom—
Thoroughly I seek in every direction.
You are there, that I do assume;
But I cannot hold You in apperception.

Nearest and dearest of my life,
Why do You play hide-and-seek with me?
Come stand before me with a smile,
Beyond the sea of suffering.
