What a bizarre tune...

(1687)  Pathik tumi gan geye jao

Pilgrim, the song You continue singing...
To what tune, tell me please.
Beacon upon gloom extreme,
Lit for whom, do You keep?

You dwell both in tempo and in beat...
Generation-Operation-Destruction concurrently.
The whole cosmos, with great ease,
In Your playhouse You make leap gleefully.

Light mid that which cannot be described,
On a lamp-wick You ignite.
By that very luster, wrong and right,
Earth, she falls into a spider's web of sorcery.
