I want Your contact

(2931)  Nayane rekhecho kena aso na

You have kept watch over me, why do You come not?
If indeed You hold dear, why then endlessly
Smile from remote, but a word utter not?

With goose bumps aplenty every blink of eye,
To get close I desire; I want the Unseen Light;
You know everything, but knowingly You don't hear,
As if to fathom anything You cannot.

Within You my earth, it is lost;
All of my nectar, race toward You it does.
Why do You not see; why don't You answer me?
Pray tell why You go off and stay yon.

Wholesome disposition

(2930)  Tomakei bhalobesechi, tomari vrater majhe

I have loved You alone.
Amid just Your pious rites,
Meanwhile I will stay alive.
This have I resolved.

At midnight in my heart blazes a light;
At sunrise in my blood its luster shines.
It glistens in defiance of life;
This nosegay in Your hand I have bestowed.

Whether or not You love, You are propitious;
On my gloom and despair, hope You pour.
Full of light, You lay aside ebony color;
For You only I've forsaken sense of sorrow.

This I have realized

(2929)  Tomare ceyechi bare bare

I have longed for You time after time;
Life's wine is You only.
This my world is bested by only Thee;
You are love's feeling.

Upon the sky and wind Your hymn soars;
Humanity with a tune jingling, it is love.
Above everybody, at the core of insight,
Is Your voice echoing.

The human faults and quirks abide,
And so they've called it unit life.
For all alike is God's seat;
On high is Your divinity.

Wake me from torpor

(2928)  Dhiir carane eso manane

With feet sedate, enter my thought;
In private, let there be a meeting.
On clouds rainy in the winds of Shravan,
Oh the One Unknown, kindly come stately.

In psyche's midst Your advent
Will brighten my existence.
Someone who had been idle through sloth,
Let him dance, Your kindness having received.

Your divine sport love-cradling,
It unifies the inert with sensibility.
Remaining mistaken is unmeaning;
Giving sense, draw me near.

A man of simple needs

(2927)  Ogo priya ogo priya ogo priya, tumi kata liila jano

Oh Beloved, oh Beloved, oh Beloved,
You know how much liila?
In dark psyche, light do You kindle;
With a smile please bring that thrill.

With color You adorn the floral petals;
Upon heart You daub the nectar.
The man who's at foot of path,
Into Your proximity please pull him.

I desire no fortune or attainment;
I don't crave supremacy or riches.
Hey the Moon of mind-sky mine,
Please just listen to my hymn.

He motivates

(2926)  Tomar patha ceye achi

I am watching Your arrival path
For how many lifetimes, I don't ken.
Hope's lantern became dim;
Oh have You eyes... don't You witness?

The shoot that in body of a seed had been,
Today it longs to touch the vault of heaven.
Desert winds happened, and it became a prickly shrub,
Through the absence of fondness.

"I have gone on watching, watching on will I go;
In desert sands I will make a flower grow.
The emptiness I'll dismiss, sending remote,
On throbbing of a passion lac-red."

The details are irrelevant

(2925)  Phulera vane bhomra sane

Along with the Bumblebee in a floral garden,
When had been the meeting,
To mind its date does not spring;
Love's hymn and memory of sweetness,
Them I can't forget in the least.

He continues swaying me, even today;
Overpowering, He makes me forget mind's pain.
A cluster of sun-flower spikes, thrilled by wind,
Whereto they float off, I don't perceive.

He goes on calling me through a rainbow's paint;
"Come, come, come", He says, ever and always.
Any and all wretchedness and any impurity,
They don't remain, for He came near to me.

Don't run away

(2924)  Se chilo atithi maneniko tithi

He had been the welcome guest, ignoring date;
He went off without informing.
He came on what pretext, saying what did He leave;
How has that been done to me?

Today too His hue I view upon grove of psyche;
In both sky and air, every moment I seek.
Asleep, awake, and deep in dream,
For Him I go on searching, ever looking.

Oh the Unseen Soul, a treasure hard to gauge,
I had been receiving the ocean-spray.
Forgetting that it's my own, I'd kept discarding,
Farther and farther withdrawing.

My all in all

(2923)  Niirava rate ei nibhrte

On this same silent night, privately,
On my mental plate please appear,
Secretly, oh Darling Dear.
Fallen a night-jasmine; fog withdrawn,
Come into the core of my heart lonely.

I have yearned for You through many ages;
In much riches, in much pain and anguish.
By a sweetness heavenly in my feeling,
Do continue staying with me constantly.

On Your acquaintance, all becomes familiar;
By knowing You, the unknown remains not.
Having made fruitful all sadhana,
In songs aplenty this You sing.

One will not see, one will know not–
Your story, one will hear it not–
But You will stay, Your love will persevere;
In the universe none else is there.

Please see

(2922)  Mane chilo asha shudhu bhalabasa

Only love: In mind had been the hope;
More than this, not a bit did I crave.
With many hues and golden rays of light,
No pearl or heap of jewels did I seek.

Visits are the gist in this mundane life;
How little is the substance they can provide!
They come and leave upon the mirror of mind;
What once had been, the same went off a-sailing.

By that love the cosmos is firmly held;
Around You it is dancing forever.
A flow of compassion is steadily shed;
Of that one fleck please give to me, smiling.

Splendid gems and strings of gold;
Every one is baseless, an existential load.
Apotheosis, Master, is You alone;
Arriving with kindly eyes, behold me.

Together is our destiny

I have held You dear;
Of You I go on thinking.
Please come close to me;
Nothing else do I crave.

You'd been mine back in antiquity;
Why flung remote will You concede?
Why would you go and forget me?
This I inquire today.

In future too You'll persevere;
You won't be wiped from psyche.
Even if wishing it, You won't succeed;
As I know, hence I daresay.

I stand in awe

(2920)  Mane mane ekii karecho

Oh my, what have You done, inwardly;
You have enticed me.
By the light of day You've kept smiling;
With night's ebon You've gone into hiding.

All the yogiis from age after age,
Around You they celebrate.
Staying on flower's body at an unknown place,
With fragrance You've made replete.

I am a servant, extremely simple;
I know not scripture, I know not doctrine.
Morning and evening, within my mind,
Why have You gone on calling?

Living in Your paradise

Now Who are You that just arrived?
My flower tray, full, You supplied.
Hymns You poured in air, on sky,
Dancing frenzied by love's light!

Oh the Panacea of my life,
I deem You only as the highest prize,
The Dearest One, because I realize:
By Your flow of kindness I survive.

On the heavens You strew sweetness;
Wind You fill with a sweet scent.
You rouse life in those distressed,
Both earth and sea, dressing in countless styles.

Sweet grace

(2918)  Andhar sagare tumi ke

Who are You on the dark sea?
Ever smiling You appeared.
After emitting sweetness of psyche,
Then, lamp ignited, You did leave.

In the pitch darkness, I could not see a bit;
For self-knowledge, I've pursued chimeras.
But You disillusioned me;
The path You revealed.

The path's goal, Lord, You can furnish well;
About Your path, who else will know, do tell?
You bestowed mercy
By filling with vitality.

"Come anew", to You I speak.
You're a dark world's light for everyone;
You love everybody.

In the depths of gloomy darkness,
When to see I am not able,
With a hundred moons' luster,
Pearl-dripping please do beam.

In everyone's psychic realm, meditation-worthy;
With linguistic rhythm, fit to be revered;
The mental honey, kindly let be smeared...
Please arise on sky of psyche.

For You, my Lord, anything

(2916)  Danrao ksanik ajana pathik

Unknown Traveler, tarry for a moment brief;
Obeisance I make to Thee.
You are the ocean's gem, of deep abyss;
And hence familiar I can't be.

At my mental arbor You alone I desire;
Your hymn I sing in my garden-paradise.
You have been fulfilling me all the time;
Yourself I remember constantly.

Hey the most Beloved from times long ago,
Kindly pull everyone still more close.
Of Your burden, grant me a tiny load;
Without indecision, that will I carry.

Upon this life's sandy beach,
Oh You, Who goes there?
The star-studded Autumn sky abrim with magic,
On this very day, You woke me.

You are the container of all forms, Beloved;
Unlike space and time, unparalleled.
Please let me be glazed by mental sweetness,
Every instant with love's flaring.

In the wind is combined a laughter sweet;
The ground You made sway by tall grass and reeds.
To the gray clouds You brought a tinge silvery,
From luster of golden sands smiling.

In this respect helpless am I

(2914)  Mane mane dekechilum

Inwardly had I invoked,
(I to Thee) constantly.
When had I remained so?
In three states: abed, dreaming, and unsleeping.

Inwardly, I have sung many a song;
Inwardly, with hundred garlands I've adorned.
Seated in the mind-realm with blooms of psyche,
I had strung those wreaths carefully.

Even now I keep on calling at times good or not,
Ignoring the hour and what is within earshot.
As long as I'll remain I will think about You;
Although solitary, I will go on speaking.

Having watched Your arrival path
My days they go by.
The mind is effusive; when, pray tell,
Will I see hope's ray of light?

On eyelids there's no urge to sleep;
The bed I find it thorny.
I wander with anxiety;
For getting You close by.

Just one concern is within psyche,
Mine is only that...
Kindly free me of that worry;
To me please come proximate.
From the moon's light no nectar do I glean;
And inside honey no sweetness is there.
Around the One am I revolving constantly;
That One is everybody's Valentine.

Attending all with gently smiling face,
You convey the mental sweetness.
One who's fallen cries beneath sorrow's weight;
You wipe away his eye-water.

A bough of the mango tree without leaf,
You make it splendid by adorning psyche.
The world, with that luster, You keep making;
You go on forgetting who is kin or unrelated.

Frequently won't return opportune juncture;
What's the condition: You neglect censure.
By saving those tormented You get pleasure;
Sing You the mantra of Great Merger.[1]

On this cloudy monsoon evening,
Mind goes floating, goes a-sailing.
Both moon and stars covered, with moonlight concealed,
The psychic peacock dances to what sorcery?

At each instant with ambrosia[1] frolics ecstasy;
In the world did a feeling heavenly appear?
Everything on Earth in cadence has been frenzied,
Through a cascade of love overflowing.

The Unknown Traveler came into my mind;
Each and every moment He gave touch of life.
Having made sweetly scented psyche's paradise,
To His import did He couple me.

My destiny's with You only, that I own.
Ever in my throat, I sing Your song alone;

I know not where I go at any moment.
Memory and thought process, making a success,
The honey of my name, kindly smear.

Upon Your contemplation it is overflowing;
It longs for You in captivating attire.

By that fantail wakens a swaying to and fro in psyche;

The Prize of everybody's life, affection is unlimited.

Into everyone's psyche, You pour love's current.
