30. Peru1Peru, Peru, Peru, Peru!
Pabitar shashi ekatar meru.
Tomar lagiya urdher kripa sopan.
Tumije tomar nimner trisha bagan.
Tomar parane swapanir dak.
Tomar nayane ushashir shankh.
Gaurab shir saurabh nir.
Kulu kulu swane nadi anadir.
Peru, Peru, Peru, Peru!
You are purity-moon and unity-mount.
For you, the compassion-flights
Of the higher worlds.
And you are the quenchless thirst
Of your heart-garden.
The supreme Dreamer is beckoning you.
Your eyes blow the dawn’s victory-conch.
You are your lofty glory’s height.
You are your fragrance-affection-nest.
Murmuring, through you is flowing
The birthless and deathless life-river.
PDC 30. This song is dedicated to Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, the beloved son of Peru. Sri Chinmoy composed it during a visit to the country in January 1987.↩
