Hankering for the unknown

(339)  Udasii hiyate kajala rate

With stoic mind on pitch-dark nights,
Why does it happen to be…
Oft and again, when time stands still,
My soul longs for the unrevealed.

Where are You; where do You stay hidden?
I am searching through the seven worlds.[1]
Deeply afflicted, tears flowing,
My heart yearns to find Thee.

The ocean of light, the mire of gloom—
Thoroughly I seek in every direction.
You've remained, that I assume;
But I can't hold You in apperception.

Nearest and dearest of my life,
Why this game of hide-and-seek with me,
Coming and standing in front with a smile,
Beyond the sea of suffering?
