Surrender



(1342)  Nutanera alo elo aji

Today the light of the new arrived...
With your appearance in my life,
My need for warmth got satisfied.

Drifted away is any predilection for dogma...
With a space-time sense built by aggregate vessels.[1]
All my burden, forthwith it got banished;
On this day my heart was filled.

With You was acquaintance in new manner...
All sentient existence became Hari's embodiment.[2]
All that's left to me is supplication at Your feet;
On this day You made the flow of devotion stream.

Self-realization



(1341)  Ami cai na ei sabhyata

I don't want this kind of civilization;
I don't want dissimulation.
On an unleashed wind I want to drift
With the simplicity of a bird.

I want open air and more light,
A star-studded azure sky,
The mental firmament steeped in wisdom
That will rid all complex confusion.

I retain Paramapurusa always in mind;
Upon His benediction sweetness I apply.
Dabbing white sandalpaste on me,[1] I will go on painting
Over any filth, anywhere.

Self-justification



(1340)  It patharer stupe

With bricks and stones in a heap,
My mind, it got buried
In a deeply dark cavity.

Never seeing the grass green,
Or the lines of beauty on leaves,
Lone and thronged by inert things,
In what form shall I find relief?

The human moves just like machine,
Chief watchword being to earn money.
Many a game of insincerity
Stands in the way, hard to exceed.

Lord's reply



(1339)  Alo amar alo tomar

The light of Mine, the light is yours...
The light, it is for everyone.
With light and light the world is full;
With light gloom is removed.

The light dwells in the realm of knowledge,
By the side of ignorance and illusion.
Into human mind the light penetrates;
The demons it casts far away.

A beacon it supplies on new-moon nights;
Guidance to those in the dark it provides.
On candle's lap is lit the wick;
All in the world are made bright by it.

Pessimist's complaint



(1338)  Ami pather hadish pai ni

No trace of the way did I receive;
So toward You I failed to proceed.
Acquaintance between You and me
With odd darkness it had been concealed;
Hence, I sought not intimacy.

I was thinking maybe there was none for me,
That love and fondness was not in my destiny.
Filled with carelessness and apathy,
Worth to existence I did not concede.

In life many a spring has arrived;
Now the fall twilight pours out its dye.
I have kept myself off to the side;
With no one's hues could I become bright.

The one constant in life

Today, at dawn and feeling lonely,
I remembered... it occurred to me
That with You on a same light-dripping morning,
We had met on the mountain-peak,
On the mountain-peak.

Then, in that remote kadam bower,
There had been a floral sweetness and a sweetness mental.
In that mental paradise, with the chiming of obtainment,
Myself had they been binding with fetters of love,
With fetters of love.

Today, by a mound of snow the flowers have got covered;
And the pleasure garden, it has lost both form and color.
Yet still today, privately, in the psychic bower,
Your love has stuck around, full up to the brim,
Full up to the brim.

At the foot of blue sky's altar,

In bosom arose a sweet touch...
Heart's favor, an enchanting song,

Neath sunbeams raining without end,
With snow melting, tears of love are shed...
Situated all alone in Whose meditation pose
Mutely are you ever-tranquil?

In the forest wide, slimness decorated,
Lengthwise dressed in grace and fragrance,
At Whose acquaintance hearts get traded
When inside this divine realm unparalleled?

On the bank of a lake under shade of a tree,
Or on a slow-sweet, cold breeze,

You did etch in mind only?

The hill is filled with light of day,
Love's glow upon its face...
Along its side and nigh embrace

Head held so very high, you are the tall tree.
Having shunned everyone, forsaken everybody,
Toward Whom do you peer and pray for mercy?

At your feet has stayed the ground, firm and stern;
Head upraised you've gone away, kissing blue heavens.
Gazing up and chanting songs of the Boundless,
In a life without speed, you've attained dynamism.

From someone else nothing do you want or get;
There is no boasting right in a bird's nest.
Though Earth's hostage, you don't bow to others;
Ever with your head held high, them do you humble.

Having painted a silver streak
Across the hills and into forest.

By the roadblocks it is never stymied.

From the heights to below the trees.

With a great impetus for descending,
All along the way, blithe and lively,
It craves liberation in love's tears.

Lofty ground mid echelons.

In white has it fallen around.

Nonetheless, you look my way.

Inside of Elysium which dream did come?
Dust of the mortal world became crimson-colored.
Could it be you want to hear her every story,
And so you make your glance overlay with honey?

Some jilted-lovesick maid, where does she cry all alone?
Having seen a cloud on moon's light, her peahen-call invokes.
In what Vrindavan, upon viewing Kanu,[1]
That gopika had got you sing, in cadence and in tune.

But You did lift me up.

My garments had been ripped and ragged;
Not a morsel to eat had I, or discrimination.
Everything You gave me; everything You taught.

I'd not comprehended human jurisdiction;
To attain You, I'd not made an effort.

I'd not found the stature of a human;
My terrain was wet and caustic.
You made honey pour from me, made me articulate;

In my soul it rings out each minute.

Under northern winds, I recall,
On biting winter blasts,

Upon my body feeling pleasant,

Stuck in dogma, time and again.

A rosebud am I, and obliquely I behold
The course of my existence.

But it is no pearl-studded flow.

In rose garden dressed in glee,
Out of shame, my face I am hiding.
I think of Him, the saga of only His glory,
Anxiously anticipating Him to receive.
To fill Earth with rhythm and song,
Oh I get totally absorbed.

In my bosom still there is honey,
And in my sky the moon is there.
Together with sweet moon, in this life earthly,
I proceed, pouring an ambrosial stream,
Speechless, love-exuding.

Scenting me with sweet fragrance,

You exist, and I do too;
But You will stay, and I will not persist.
Only inside You for ages without limit,
My tiny I, it will continue.
This eternal truth is the chief doctrine;
With both heart and mind, today I have understood.

Soldiers of God



(1297)  Pather upal dui paye dale

Having crushed road's pebbles neath two feet,
Ever we march onward...
For us there is no fear, no fear.
Having smashed hind'ring walls to smithereens,
Ever we gaze forward.

Raising up the flag of victory,
We march straight ahead, not zigzag.
Heads held high we proceed, wagon-wheels advance,
Without the slightest misgivings.

New-age pioneers are we,
Keeping dreamworld to the forefront.
Having pulverized stony prisons,
The song of Infinity we sing.

Spring comes...



(1296)  Phaguneri parash diye

Having applied Phalgun's touch,
In what form did You come?
With the succulence of Madhumas,[1]
You pulverized all inertia.

Today the world's abrim with purpose;
Filled with fragrance is the Earth...
Cosmic mind choosing her suitor,
In what cradle did You sway everyone?

In tones and tunes psyche's ecstatic;
Every moment it's filled with a thrill...
Bondage broken, broken the stone-prison,
Beat after beat, it goes to a lovers' tryst.

Creation



(1295)  Phuler vane ekla ele

Alone you came into a grove of blooms
For purpose of meeting with Whom?
Who is the Lover? Having pacified,
He captured your heart's paradise!

A crescent moon in vast blue sky,
As your guardsman, it's on watch at night.
Plants packed with flowers, tantamount to nectar
Flashing beauty, they grow in abundance.
Into this setting in Whose hope did you arrive
With love's kohl etched upon your eyes?

Says history: This way only it takes place...
Twixt God and living being, honey-smeared is the game.

Is my Beloved gone?



(1294)  Ami tomay bhalabesechi

I have loved Thee
Even more than I love me,
My dark-night's travel-mate,
Sweet smile on a mournful day.

My solace mid bereavement's sea,
Love's floral thread drenched with tears,
You've held enthralled eternal time;
You're mingled with rhythm of life.

On moonlit night full-moon attends;
To gentle virtue You are wed...
Into each atom of my thought,
Piercing are You with Your compassion.
