Attracting the All-attractive One

(589)  Tumi eso amar ghare krpa kare

Kindly come into my residence;
I've arrayed an altar for Thee.
Threaded is a garland of sweet jasmine,
And on the lampstand is the light of ghee.

My heart is coated with mental sandal
And full of honey from blooms of many colors.
I've been waiting, my ear to the ground,
Listening for sound of Your holy footfall.

In the shifting Jhulanjatra[1] wind,
My untamed heart grows flustered.
Thinking of You, she is throbbing;
Help me by staying at my home please.
