Sundara Jadi Kurupe Na Base Bhalo
Sundara jadi kurupe na base bhalo
Kuruper prane kemane rajibe alo
Dhruba tara jadi adhruba pane phire kabhu nahi chai
Mitthya kemane labhibe mukti nahi jane keha hai
Atma tripti lakya moder noy
Rupantari moder shreshta joy
TranslationIf beauty does not love ugliness,
How can Light abide in ugliness-core?
If the pole-star does not look at falsehood
How can falsehood achieve liberation?
Alas, it is beyond, far beyond the imagination of all.
Self-satisfaction is not our goal.
Transformation-perfection is our victory's highest goal.
Sri Chinmoy, Garden of love-light, part 3, Agni Press, 1975
