Suddenly it happened

(959)  Acin se kon sure hrdayeri madhupure

With some tune unknown inside my heart's sweet abode,
He appeared, illuminating everything.
The one I've always craved, in the looking glass of psyche,
He seduced my mind; He came into my fold.

My all rhythms, my all ragas and raginiis,[1]
All the mornings full of hope and the nights full of honey,
All of them in concert and joined in a single prayer,
With one mind they played my monochord today.

All the sandal-perfumed groves there were,
And all the floral-fragrant air currents,
All of them, pouring nectar into but one dance-beat,
With one immortal song, they went on singing.
