Unchangeable loveEverything is subject to change in this mutable world of ours.
The bees dancing and playing over the rose
and the jasmine pass with the same affection in their eyes to the kadamba.
The ocean, leaping and forgetting itself in a moment
with the embrace of the moon’s rays without hesitation
embraces this river with the same love and forgets its pain very easily.
Making me Thy lover till now, for Thy pleasure,
Thou art also on an exploration for someone else.
But I neither grieve nor lament nor have I any complaint.
For on what authority should I wish Thou love me forever
and make me and none else save me Thy perpetual lover?
Yes, I shall proceed with the discharging of my duty.
It is jut similar to that of the saras bird that maintains love during life
and even after that remains faithful to one to whom it dedicates its heart.
And so unparalleled is the delight derived from duty discharged
that if the story of Thy transformation ever comes to be true,
I shall not lament that.
On hearing those love-purified sacred words
tears rolled down His cheeks and He said:
‘Shall I ever forget thee? Thou art my life, soul, everything.
Shall I forsake thee and love another?
My love, even though I am the Ocean of Love,
am I ever competent enough to break its natural phenomenon?
The leaping tide at the sight of moon is deprived of love
that flows from the river’s embrace.
And the bee of the rose is devoid of delight which the kadamba bee has.
This thou should never forget.’
