Rahiyachho Ati Kachhe

Rahiyachho ati kachhe

Bhabi dure bahu dure

Supta e hiya mor

Jage taba banshi sure

Tumi nai bale jara

Chhale shudhu nija prane

Sanpi jena hiya mor

Tomarai jaya gane


You are near, very near,

Nearer than the nearest,

Yet it seems to me

That You are far, very far,

Farther than the farthest.

Lo and behold,

Today my heart’s door is wide open.

My heart is fully awake

To the soul-stirring music of Your Flute.

Those who say that You do not exist

Are only deceiving themselves.

I wish to offer my surrender-life

At every moment to You, to You alone.
