A life for You only

(2965)  Ei shephalii surabhita sandhyay

On this jasmine-fragrant evening,
Mind sets out a-sailing
On a raft of white clouds only.
In the realm of moonlight, this same world of disguise,
No obstruction does the psyche want to heed.

Those who call me from behind, I don't want to hear;
For sake of the past, no pullback is there.
I simply go ahead, I proceed,
Footmarks traced on golden beach.

For just me my Bosom Friend, ahead He lies;
On the path, in rows He keeps lanterns alight.
Today for His sake is everything of mine;
Memories of grief and glee, in Him they go missing.

Oh how gloomy

(2964)  Tumi satata sathe rekho amare

Always with You myself please do keep;
Helpless and to darkness never forsake me.

From the fountain of light I've come;
Ever since Creation's dawn, Yourself have I loved.
You are the élan vital in all existence, down deep.

Sun's emergence and bewitching moonlight,
This earth beauteous and a star's delicious smile,
You are filling all; everything is only Your resonating.

My happiness and grief

(2963)  Path calite andhara rate

Upon dark night, along the path to proceed,
Lord, You alone are my polestar.
Yourself I see.
It's so when I stay likewise,
On ocean of happiness or with eyes' tears.

What little one fathoms that relates to peace;
In Your midst his everything he does seek.
You're the tranquil ocean, with nectar replete.

In this world mingled are both sorrow and euphoria,
Neither of them self-sustaining, no, not at all.
Alas, alas, they come and go, away someplace,
Past the bank of fantasy.

As if something is making me

(2962)  Tomay bhule thakite je cai

To stay Yourself forgot I crave;
Why that I cannot, please do state...
Why mind turns back repeatedly
And musing on You it remains.

At work during the day I think I'll leave
Upon a karmic sea, amid people aplenty.
In gaps of activity, as if by whose scream,
Your tidings get relayed.

Fast asleep at night I think I am staying
Totally enveloped by darkness dense and deep.
By the flash of lightrays at each eye-blink,
Your affection is proclaimed.

The Supreme

(2961)  Malaya parashe kusuma suvase

Now, at touch of southern breeze and flower-scent sweet,
With mental glee the Bee intones.
That flow of song, with tune and tempo filled,
To far azure it moves afloat.

The scope also, it is not His;
And no time limit is supported.
His, the dance in beat and rhythm;
On both crest and trough ambrosia molts.

Glazing honey, come along with that Bee
In acquaintance and perplexity, external and at deeps.
Clutching constantly, Him I hold in thinking
Such that missing never He does go.

We meet in mind, You guide across

(2960)  Nandanavane manoloke

At paradise in mind-sphere, do appear,
Inundating heart-core with exciting rhythm,
With smiling face sweet and charming.

In Your contemplation, the days go away;
Nights are spent with just Your tale.
On Earth Your superb beauty pervades,
A zest for life with each eye-blink.

This mind of mine is Your accomplishment;
This life, it chants Your triumph's anthem.
Pride having forgotten, on Your way I travel,
Surpassing imagination in the realm of psyche.

When will my Darling arrive?

(2959)  Se bale giyechilo asibe

He'd left, telling He'll arrive;
Why did He come not?
In a dark home light will ignite;
But turning back, He looked not.

Upon nor'wester's night,
A lamp has got extinguished, the wind by.
The darkness having made bright,
A sighting He permitted not.

Alone in gloom I've stayed waiting;
Each minute and second I've kept counting.
Still now this my numeration,
Its end happened not.

Begging mercy

(2958)  Bhul kare tumi esecho

Erroneously You've arrived;
At my door You've appeared.
Poor and needy am I very;
At my home there is nothing
To proclaim welcome to Thee.

I could not bedeck my dwelling;
Naught have I, Yourself to please.
An empty heart beseeches:
Come inside, forgiving deficiency.

Abloom, mind's lotus have I kept;
Into it I have poured sweet scent.
Please do bestow touch graciously,
Alike unto the moon and moonbeams.

On eyelids hope is replete.
All my hope satisfying,
Day and night, stay with me.

In a world devoid of light,
Except for You, black is entire.
Whatever by surmise feels fine,
That also, into gloom it sinks.

Before my eyes, Lord, please appear,
Upon those dreamy lotus feet.
Whisper words into my ear;
On earth will know nobody.

My love is unrequited

(2956)  Nam janina paricay janina

Name I don't know, particulars I know not;
But I've loved You nonetheless.
Do You know it not?
I have gone on calling You, kindness I've begged;
Could You hear my plight or not?

On the new-moon night, impenetrably dense,
Under sweet moonlight, ray-dripping and love-laden,
I have called night and day, in meditation I have craved;
I have kept performing Your sadhana.

I have yearned for You on happy days;
With bad dreams I have pined on nights of pain.
I've known that I am Yours and imagined You are mine;
To forget this I cannot.

I can't make it without You

(2955)  Ganeri bhuvane ganeri bhuvane

In the world of my songs, in the realm of song,
Alone there is not, no one is solitary.
With rhythm and melody, in the abode of heart,
Constantly Your meeting I receive.

I go on forgetting identity mine;
Nothing I own, that have I realized.
By having lost everything, on my glee
Nectar is smeared.

Yours I'd been and Yours I am;
By Your songs alone I've stayed buoyant.
From my getting all with taste of honey,
I go on surviving.

Cause for celebration

(2954)  Tava agamane phul phutiyache

On Your advent flowers have blossomed;
In every garden hues have clung.
The bud of hope has filled with nectar;
In a mute mouth speech has woken up.

Today the southern wind's indifferent;
Where it goes soaring is unknown to it.
Nothing prevents flowing to the Infinite;
In contact with You it wants to come.

With floral pollen in each cloud cirrus,
On lightrays has the realm divine swung.
Deity has come down to the mortal world;
Heartbroken, why be crying any more?

Such a tease

(2953)  Tomay ami bhalabasi, ekatha ki jeneo jano na

Yourself I hold dear;
This, though known, do You know it not?
In hope of Your advent I stay waiting;
Musing at an idle moment, do You see it not?

Just for You is my life;
With Your tune alone, world of mine.
On the far horizon at thought's frontier,
Only getting You is my sadhana.

What I crave and what I don't request,
In Your presence it is not suppressed.
All my yearning having painted red,
With Your hue the psyche, You fill it not.

Making His acquaintance

(2952)  Aji manera mukure rupera sayare

Today only, in the mental mirror and on sea of form,
Recognize that Mind-Thief.[1]
Wiping away all tears and casting aside,
The collyrium of love, give it tracing.

Having been waiting, many an age has gone;
With tears streaming, fallen have many garlands.
Many a night has poured into morn;
Toward days of yore, why do you peer?

Today in life has wakened the spring month;
The Unknown Passerby, to home has He come.
A psychic peacock has run with fantail amok;
Only to His cadence go on dancing.

A sweet obsession

(2951)  Ganer raja tumi prane esecho

You've arrived inside life, oh the Song King;
Through song You have lavished an ambrosial beauty.
Ever You've gone on racing toward Infinity;
From a flawless realm You have come a-sailing.

Not any bondage did You ever credit;
No obstacle could make You halt even a bit.
Constantly smiling, having loved everyone,
The path You have traversed along with everybody.

Only You are the principal deity at life's festival;
And so unto You alone all make known obeisance.
You've entered the mind of all by everybody's invitation;
Everyone's psychology You have been permeating.

With a flood of light

(2950)  Nirjan vane tumi ke ele

Into a lonesome grove, oh You, Who did come?
You conveyed light's inundation.
In the dark alone had I been moving;
You revealed path's destination.

As much as I had called, that much had I wept;
Taken aback, oft I'd stood, dejected.
You made me forget affliction.

I had thought that lone and helpless I've remained;
Is there no one fathoming my pain?
You shattered the error.

Days pass, moments pass, I make Your acquaintance;
In this world none is ever unattended, I have grasped.
You keep company each second.

Once experienced

(2949)  Andhare gabhiire shravane gopane

In a gloom profound and rainy, furtively,
You'd appeared inside my psyche.
Full had been the clouds, a tempest speedy;
Yet You came on silent feet.

At my door there'd been no knocking;
Summons You gave not to waken me.
But on light's touch the latch is freed;
It had elapsed upon Your coming.

Long back did it go away, that night rainy;
Many ages having come, with the past they've married.
But that day's memory, that hymn of dream,
Even still in private it rises routinely.

(2948)  Kanda ar hasa ei niye asha

Lamentation and laughter, with same wish;
In this hope, love is mixed.
Catastrophic fire, enraged bolts of thunder;
The moon's glimpse, rays of light adrift.

Crying I am going on for ages aplenty;
Through cloud-chinks exudes weeping.
A light-flash, a smiling moment,
Forgotten is pain's visit.

Your splendor floats on the mirror of psyche,
Sometimes by hint, else crystal clear.
Whenever it goes missing to a realm unknown afar,
Then circling existence arrives a mist.

I could not express through language
How much the eyes, they'd been teary!

Everything of everyone You remain observing;
What decorates in which place, there You pay heed.
With pollen of psyche, sweetness You smear;
And You go on smiling, inwardly.

Whatever had been possible, it has occurred;
What has remained dormant, it will be in future.
Expressed or absent, that which is obscure,
The flame of wisdom's lamp You cast on everybody.

Steer me along light's street.

In darkness gloomy let me not falter and wait;
Absent thought, may I not state: "I wish, I crave".
You're with the ones for whom nothing is scarce;
Please dismiss the wicked turbidity.

I have gone and I'll go on holding to Your path, Lord;
I won't be despondent in the least, ever onward will I forge.
Nonetheless, when the storm's thunder and lightning come,
Please do simply cast a glance at my heart, smiling.

No one may weep below society–
Like just one wave, all in company,

Between people there's no schism–
Let be told and known one hope, one wish–
Obey the one exemplary inspiration;

In affliction, sorrow, and consolation.

You are luster's central gem,
The lotus on a sea of concept.

And so I beg for Your compassion.

Upon path persists just a stumbling sense,
But by that does my motion halt asudden?
Having scoffed at all impediments,

Night and day I am rehearsing a tune,
With heart abrim to sing for You.
The hours went away, day and age drifted off;
My song You overheard it not.

By rhythm I have been engrossed in many dance beats;
Gestures I've composed, Your reverie surrounding.
The tinkling of ankle-bells, oh Beloved Mystery,
Whereto it floated off, I know not.

All the glee of this world and all the grief in any psyche–
Everything's a garland threaded– taking it to heart.

The topic of Infinite's limit, You hear it not;
To notion of dualistic monism, credence You give not.[1]
On a swollen river-current, on the ocean hard to cross,
With a boat You are ever going onward.

The Chimera of hate and envy You wish not;
Exploitation and oppression You brook not.
Everyone's fulfillment only is Your sádhaná;
So, mingled with everybody's hope You are.

The pile of dreamy moonbeams.

Like the vernal breeze, a touch Thine You afford.
Scorched by the sun and frozen by inertia,
A winsome flute You play to erase mind's misery.

Someone laughs, and someone cries in private.

The condensed night got ended;
By crimson light the eastern sky was brightened.
In human mind love's nectar, from sleep it was awakened;
And with that, sky and air You've vibrated.

On both the out- and inside, openly and privately,

On lamp of ghee a fragrant flame have I lit,
Welcome to bid, that no lapse may be.

In every land You exude kindness.

Of Your attributes there's no similitude;
Your beauty is unlimited by purview.
In bottomless sea, at peak Himalayan,
Floating on does Your love linger.

In bondage of a unit, satisfaction had been.
Discarding memory's incomplete disappearance,[1]

Throughout the night I've called to Thee;
In the pitch dark a song I've gone on singing.
The sun that's strung a friendship,

At Your sonance life suffuses inert beings.

My bloom, by sunshine it gets withered;
Scent is lost, nectar vanishes.
Then by my side You appeared;
Anew comes everything,
On just a moment's thinking,

With a bower's beauty, with the glamor of a bloom,
You've gone on dancing in rhythm and beat.

But never toward anyone do You express hate.
On mind-sky You are the moon, with honey You glaze;
