Blunder no more

(733)  Tomare cahite giya bhul kare

On my way to ask for You, in error
Your grant of a boon have I implored.
On my way to get the sea, one drop
Of mere saltwater have I got.

I did not know the difference twixt matter and consciousness;
I'd not learned which gives mundane pleasure and which, eternal bliss.
Relinquishing the giant tree and getting a fruit only,
I considered that to be intellectuality.

Whatever You gave with the right hand,
With the left hand You have taken back.
When all asking and getting are finished,
I've noticed the final tally, it is nil.
"Make no demand, and know that I'm now with"...
Upon Your flute is played this message.
