Shudhu Seidin Tomai Dekhechi
Shudhu seidin tomai dekhechhi
Khelechhi tomar sane
Janma labhechhi ama dhara bukhe
Tabu achhe mor mane
Tumi aj bahu dure
Barai bedan sure
TranslationO Lord Supreme, only the other day
I saw You and played with You,
Before I came into the world of ignorance-night.
Yet I remember my golden past within
Alas, far, very far, now You are.
The bird of my heart is crying and trembling
with darkest pangs.
Sri Chinmoy, Garden of love-light, part 1, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1974
