Swapane Nehari Atmaswarup

Swapane nehari atmaswarup
Basi tare ami bhalo
Khaniker tare dure chale jai
Jiban andhar kalo
Jagarane hai phire ase mor
Andhiyar byatha prane
Nahi pari tai sampite amai
Bidhatar jaya gane


In my dream I see my real form,
My soul-form, and I love it.
And I see in the twinkling of an eye
That all my sufferings, all my darknesses
Have disappeared.
Alas, when I wake up I see them
All around me, inside me.
I become once again darkness and
Ignorance incarnate;
Therefore, I never can offer my existence
To the Lord Supreme
For His constant Victory here on earth,
There in Heaven.
