Pure devotion

(538)  Alo jhara kon sudur prabhate

On what morn, ancient and effulgent,
Did I realize Your accompaniment?
I don't know how to know the day;
I cannot divine it in any way.

Overcome by ego I was conceited,
Judgement marred by scarred intellect.
I fell to my knees; but to know and to see,
Still I could not out of shame, out of fear.

I got but little in quest of philosophy;
In science, demolished was my humanity.
Through pure devotion[1] I've come to see
You had arrived within my reach.
