Who am I kidding?

(1588)  Candanasurabhi makha

Glazed by sweet scent of sandalpaste,
Oh, Who are You that came today,
Kohl traced upon Your eyes,
Asking nothing from my side?

I declared: "Yourself I don't recognize;
That we've met, it does not spring to mind.
But I have taken resolve inwardly
On throne building in lonely retreat."

Then You replied: "You do know Me;
With Me is your intimacy.
Since ancient times long out of mind,
Assuming countless shapes, I have arrived."
