Myself He entices

(2093)  Tumi ele kena aji amar mane

Why came You today to my attention,
Hearing not my words, heeding not my obstructions,
Neath the morning's crimson color, amid the bird-songs,
Under this same Eastern sun?

In selfish worldly pleasure had I been absorbed,
Never gazing at the region of another person.
You made me forget it all, oh what have You done!
You told me to look in Your direction.

Smiling You speak, floating You proceed;
An unsightly earth You make overflowing...
The world goes to You with attributes only Yours.
