Intrinsic



(1102)  Jiivane eso prabhu

Come into my life, Lord,
Dressing Yourself in form and color.
Smile upon my thoughts, Lord,
Manifesting in a thousand manners.

In refulgent wave-series,
Many things they come, and many things do leave.
May You keep on staying,
Becoming mine in private reverie.

The celestial cradle swings;
Many things they dance, and many things do sing.
With rhythm may You persevere,
Infusing tune, tempo, and beat.

The impossible dream



(1101)  Ashoke palashe durva ghase

Within ashok and palash, and in the crabgrass too,
Whimsical are You, oh my Lovely You...
You are beautiful, so very beautiful.
In the chirping of a bird in deserted forest,
In the murmur of a spring, You are enchanting.

With deep blue garb of far azure
On ruby sunrise in the eastern heavens...
With play of hues at fest of sweetness,
In color You trickle on the seashore.

Yourself can anyone else catch?
You are the Lord, immensely vast.
Only by Your grace the world proceeds,
And yet with words and thought You are beyond reach.

Is our love real?



(1099)  Dur akasher niiharika

Distant sky's nebula,
Why'd You go and stay afar?
Mind's precious gem that You are,
My psychic contact have You got?

The abstract acquaintance tween us,
It's a long and cordial friendship.
Have You forgotten in whose residence...
In which heaven... a lamp You have kindled?

In love with You am I;
For You do I laugh and cry.
My wicker basket[1] holds a wreath,
And I am waiting... have You seen everything?

You are heaven's splendor, I am a lampflame;
I am a lampflame, I am a lampflame.
You are the prime focus of all cogitation;
You dwell in so many deeds but don't allow perception.

Outside of me there is the whole cosmos;
Having borne all inside, You are so enormous.
More respected than the reverend, You are that magnificent;
There is no one who's alone in Your universe.

On some night out of memory, having neglected Thee,
I'd gone traveling down some erroneous streets.
Today my blunder burst; I've come back again in Your vicinity.
Now I see, spinning round joy and sorrow, only Your wheels,
Only Your car-wheels.

The sole solution



(1097)  Gharer andhar pradiip jvele

Having lit a lamp, home's darkness,
I am able to dispel it.
But mind's darkness to banish,
By no means can I accomplish.

Outside, oh what dark-moon night,
But joined with it are star-smiles.
Due to stinginess the mind's darkness
Is only made still darker.

At the core of mind in utter privacy,
Having retrieved thought's lamp of ghee
From tiers of waves in form's sea,
Impinging on the sky of psyche,
Every instant I remember Thee.

Into my desert-heart come, please come
To make green, make flowers blossom,
And fill with sweetness.

Not a single bloom or fruit is there in me,
No offering with which to worship Thee.
By Your touch, full of sap a barren tract will be;
Come, please come, to clothe me in beauty.

Upon scorching sand applying Your blessing,
You make it cool... more and more coolness You bring.
By Your touch and sweet thought-stream,
You suffuse vitality with honey.

Do we stroll about in utmost privacy.

It speaks of Your love-story.
Only with Thee is my world;
Only with Thee are Earth's denizens.

Why did a bumblebee come in the mind?
And whereto did it fly away again?
In the forest why crooned a nightingale?
To whose call did it reply?

Looking in the mind, I saw someone seated there;
Moving in the forest, I saw him give a mild grin.
Why did it happen like this?

In the psyche why is he in hiding?
And why, deposited in forest, is he residing?
Your inner purpose please confide in me.

You have come on path of light with a new morning
To confer on everybody bliss.
You have drifted on form's stream with pleasant mentality
To remove everybody's psychic filth.

Age after age countless songs were sung;
For You was so much invocation.
With mantras aplenty were the many noble hearts...
You came to Earth, delighting all.

Everybody knows that You transcend both form and attribute,
But still they long to see You with those two.
Keeping everybody's wish in mind have You,
Through meditation and its wisdom, imparted the Truth.

Ever Lovely

A cascade of light has come down,
Do say, on whose account?
Golden colored was that source of beauty;
It made distant everything gloomy.

Painted in new hues were all creepers and trees;
Under the sway of new ideas was humanity.
You poured ambrosia lavishly.

In scent, shape, and color, flowers were well-adorned;
Like pearls were the shiny drops of water.
Amid beauty the E'er-Lovely allowed His embrace,
Having rendered unwarranted grace.

Wherefrom comes the light in a niche of psyche;
What unfamiliar touch did your mind receive?
Oh please do tell, do tell please.
Stored up within spirit,
Which ambition was fulfilled?

Counting time how many days went by in vain;
How many grand conclaves were dispersed in despair?
Hope and hopelessness, both being washed away,
Which unexpected guest came today?

In a garden withered, your bud has arrived;
Ashen lips have now become colored bright.
All gloomy fatigue being cast aside,
His advent's lamp you ignite.

Every human being is family.

In grief we cry, in joy we laugh;
We love friends and well-wishers.
In hunger we take food and drink collectively;
That we acknowledge as a common need.

We all love this earth,
Sky's moon and stars, and the forests.
To the same beat we dance, to the same tune we sing;
With one and same mind, we appeal to the Supreme.

In return, You've asked for nothing.
Even though my hundred flaws are known,

With honeyed postures redolent of laughter,
On the three worlds, You had lavished nectar.

In that lonesome nighttime arbor,
Had full moon been creeping in?

A vernal breeze in transit to elsewhere,
Softly, very softly, it did speak to me:
"Go from here, or keep knowing misery;
Heed what the peacock's call is saying.

"Use your idle hours for good deeds;
Lay aside former depravity.
Gaze forward with audacity;
Disregard all that was temporary."

A PROUT fairy tale



(1053)  Alor desher parii eseche

From the realm of light came a sprite;
Her colored wings she opened wide.
After doing just good deeds, she moved on;
But, lo, she's snatched the mind's black spots.

No one hates anybody now;
No one grabs food from another's mouth.
Education, medication, and a house...
And clothing too all have found.

Among the humans, all are cousins;
There are no mutual conflicts.
Grief of one is everybody's sadness;
Let there be a smile, and everybody laughs.

Even icebergs melt



(1052)  Tahari madhura bhave

On only His sweet ideation,
Within psyche, oh what happened!
All of mine that was routine
Got washed somehow into Infinity.

My tears are simply streaming;
The heart conceded its defeat.
In an instant, unexpectedly,
It was vanquished by the Mind-Thief.

Crying and smiling again and again,
Coming and going is now at an end.
This time, the Love-Game is over;
The prize, did He surrender?
