I seek but do not find

(2853)  Gane gane ami khunjechi tomare

With song after song I've searched for Thee,
At many a forest, at pilgrim sites and sea,
On river banks and mountain slopes,
In quakes from meteor and lightning.

What I've viewed, whatever I've listened to,
Amid just that I've searched for You.
Where I believe there's not, I find no way also;
But at just that place I did not go to seek.

Earlier I did not know that You had been so near;
You had perched inside a mental niche secretly.
There would have been no time wastage even so,
Had I detected You at the meditation seat.
