The one thing I need

(172)  Tava krpa bina amar taranii

Without Your mercy, my ship,
On a shoreless sea it sails adrift.
I've not wanted to hear any words;
I've not wanted to get any wisdom...
I just want You to arrive adjacent;
Having spread both arms, I'll hold on to a leg.

I do fear the vanity of action;
I can't bear the haughtiness of wisdom.
So, arriving quietly, sit in my vicinity,
With acquisition's joy like ambrosia secretes.

Action is with You only, wisdom is with You only;
On attaining Thee, everything gets received.

  1. I have no other refuge but You. Let me be free from delusive conceit.
