Must I die first?

(1138)  Shata badha utkrami tumi eso

I've crossed a hundred obstacles; You please appear...
Upon a southern breeze, please do appear.
Arise with beauty in mind's mansion;
Kindly smile with a soothing touch.

Those who come then go, wanting nothing,
They don't cast a return glance to the rear...
With form and flavor their sweetness is full.
Kindly favor the living with Your affection.

There is no invocation or immersion,
Formalistic sacrifice, or circumambulation...
You had been, You are now, and staying You will be.
Without waiting for my immolation, kindly do appear.
