What we seek

(2985)  Esecho esecho, tumi esecho kiseri tane

You have arrived, You have arrived,
You have come with which attraction?
Onto Earth's surface-dust, Yourself, You've declined,
Any and all vanity, having ignored.

A temple built with lovely jewels,
A lake adorned by tiirtha's sacred waters,
Not going close to anyone and taking naught,
With empty intent, oh why did You come?

Giving its fiery plume, You ignite the comet;
Dreading that flame, both Rahu and Ketu move in orbit.
Nature true lies in stability; wholly due to this,
Toward that alone You pull everyone.
