As You please



(1161)  Ami tomake bhalabasiyachi

Yourself I have cherished.
In Your splendor and my love,
I have found the sweetness of existence.

Appear in my psyche secretly and alone,
Such that none on Earth or in heaven knows.
In heart's casket I will tend to Thee;
For You a place I've kept making.

Do not hold me dear, there's no harm;
I ask only for Your vision from afar.
Don't come near; laugh at a distance...
I have decorated Your arrival path.

My Plus-One



(1160)  Bhavatiita tumi bhavaloke eso

Transcendental One, come to the realm of existence
With experience of benign thoughts.
Into a flowered forest, into human notions,
Stooping down, enter life's celebration.

Whatever is outmoded, kindly do remove;
Saturate all with light of the new.
Inside of me grant Your embrace
In ever-fresh forms and fresh states.

From birth to death You are my bosom friend, I know;
So why do You cast me away, leaving me on my own?
With Your touch, Your illumination,
Take me to Your mahábháv.[1]

In a flower



(1159)  Rauner melay esechile tumi

You'd arrived with a festival of color;
In a flower-show, is there such glamor?
With enchanting magic You had risen,
Smiling in both youthfulness and sweetness.

On the first morning You had been solitary;
Stealthily You'd let Yourself get revealed.
With Your glee, Your touch of vitality,
Earth had filled with greenery.

With jingling sounds You had capered,
Ever executing diverse steps.
With entranced bliss under Your spell,
The mortal world's been enthused by what grandeur?

Nothing is hidden



(1158)  Gane gane eso

In song after song please arrive,
Pulverizing psyche's pride.
Life after life, please commingle,
Ridding the limits of meanness.

In whose mind what exists
That is thought in secret?
You know everything equally;
You proceed, scrutinizing everybody.

Outside You there is nothing;
In both joy and sorrow You are everybody's sanctuary.
Everybody's history in like manner You consider;
You proceed, keeping watch on everyone.

His mercy



(1157)  Ke go ele sudha jhara

Oh Who did come, dripping moonlight?
All darkness pushing aside,
You made the earth bright.

With You is my acquaintance
Of so many ages, but who knows anyway!
With a glitter of new light today,
You did generate a cascade.

Come into my life, come into my psyche,
With a form enchanting, in complete privacy.
All hopes to satisfy and the mind to fill,
Lovely One, You are full of sweetness.

No mere IOU



(1156)  Ke go tumi ele maneri majhe

Oh Who arrived inside my mind?
Sky and air, upon Your music,
Vibrated, they've grown feverish therein.

You desire nothing, nothing do You ask;
Always giving something, You don't want to grab.
Yet, for the sake of giving something, I am awake;
But even by mistake, Your kindly eyes don't crave.

Nothing small do You desire from my side,
I realize You but want my sense of "I".
I have loved, in the mind have I been frenzied;
To give everything, mind is now ready.

So far away



(1155)  Jyotsna nishiithe niirave nibhrte, tomar lagiya racechi gan

At moonlit midnight, silently and privately,
I've composed a song for Thee.
Listen to my story, understand my agony;
Bring to a close anxiety.

There's just one thing I am saying:
I'm in love, so why don't You come near?
So much distance is far too severe;
Now let there be an end to it.

Just one pain needs explaining:
For pranam[1] to make, I don't get near.
Whatever's there for me to speak,
I would present at yonder feet.

Bewildered



(1153)  Aji mor vasanta jhariya jay avahelay

Today, my springtime is declining... by neglect.
The extant honey dribbling, leaves are getting shed.
And blossoms, before time they are wizened... by neglect.

From floral grove the gentle breeze has gone away.
With dust-storm its throbbing grace has got encased.
Where oh where are You... in these evil days?

With new beauty please arrive; cast a smile full of life.
Come to make understand, to guide those who are mystified.
Oh my, except for you none exists... at this baleful time.

Ethereal



(1152)  Maneri majhare gopane agocare

Within the mind, secretly and unnoticed,
You'd arrived, oh my Darling Dearest.
None did see, none did know,
That love of Yours, oh Peerless One.

On autumn eves and upon dusk in summer,
In smiling spring with its floral fragrance,
You had laughed and sung a song;
One can't fathom my emotions!

The sweet jingle of Your ankle-bells,
It overwhelms all thoughts perplexed.
You had danced and uttered words–
Those words heavenly, like ambrosia!

Anandamurti was here



(1151)  Ei svapnasudha bhara dhara

This very Earth, filled with dream-nectar,
By Your touch has become dulcet,
Exuding a resplendent sweetness.

Flood tide has occurred in Earth's oceans;
It has roused a gigantic fluctuation...
You had watched, and You had laughed;
And so the Earth, ecstatic it has waxed.

At Earth's pleasure groves with fond emotions,
In the flowers blooming with love's pollen,
Everything is forgotten; with heart's passion,
Adrift is a fragrant current.

Joy's true nature



(1150)  Dhara diyechile manera mukure

In mind's mirror You had acquiesced;
That kindness I cannot forget.
Earth had become profoundly blissful,
Witnessing delight's true nature.

Sweetness had kept brimming in a blossom;
With its honey had a bosom overspilled.
Privately, in a niche of psyche's garden,
Bumblebee had come a-hummin'.

Light had arrived, piercing the dark;
A crazed mind had been dabbed with nectar.
With contented eyes and blazing fervor,
I've gained You; my heart is full.

Making sense of it all



(1149)  Tumi jadi na aso priya

In case You are not coming, my Dear,
For Whom shall I keep waiting?
All alone in flower garden,
For Whom shall I weave a garland?

Seated am I in seclusion,
Absorbed in Your meditation.
Thinking, thinking of tales Thine,
That's how I'll make time go by.

The image of You constantly
Floats within my memory;
Stories of the days gone by
To contemplate it likes.
Presently this heart of mine,
A damp night-jasmine alike,
It emits a scent that's sweet,
Your blessed touch to receive.

He fills my senses



(1148)  Tumi anu anute acho

In each minute particle You exist;
On lonesome morns, with crimson luster
Mind and heart You've kept filled.

Outside Your vision, anything I go to do...
With eyes open I perceive it is not unknown to You.
From birth to death, at every step,
You are dancing in each fluctuation.

Have mercy that I may keep You in mind,
In thought and memory stay by Your side.
All around You may my heart sing;
At the end, in the beginning, You are witnessing.

Transfigured



(1147)  Ami bhule gechi sei din ksan

I've forgot the precise day and moment
When Yourself I beheld, oh Peerless One;
But even now love's honey gives a swing in psyche
When about You I do think, my Darling.

From the vibrance of blue firmament,
What a sound comes floating on the wind!
I lose myself in its form and color,
In the heavens' fond obsession.
Life got kneaded with that pollen,
Its sweet scent, a fragrance that with psyche mixed.
In that selfsame tune was the song You sang today;
Immaculate the impure one became.

Enough to go around



(1146)  Tumi esecho bhalobesecho, andhar sagar pare tarii beyecho

You have come, and You have loved;
Across the dark sea You have steered the boat.
You have filled Earth with floral collections;
You have relieved thirst and hunger's throes.

The foremost of those who've arrived,
Your mercy's speck they have acquired.
Those yet to come, they all will earn
Compassion's stream in this universe.
Yourself having attended,
You have brought a flood with shower of effulgence.

In eternal abode You dwell, and in liila You descend;
So in the flow of liila, Yourself we will all possess.
By Your grace, we will sail across the darkness;
Mind and heart You have filled with confidence.
