Thou art my whole and soleThere is an incessant flow of the Ganga in Thy eyes;
why should I go elsewhere for cleansing the dirt of my mind?
An apostle of affection Thou art;
where else should I wander in quest of affection?
The universe breathes in Thee; Thou breathest in the universe as well;
in the universe, where else should I travel for the sake of Thine?
A cup of love, a goddess of peace, Thou art;
where else should I roam for the discovery of love and peace?
Certainly by the drinking of Thine one transcends the limits of life and death.
Such a cup of divinity Thou art.
Why has the love been born so abundantly?
That is an improper question and shall not be raised by me.
I cannot but come closer and closer to Thy spirit
like the yonder river flowing towards the sea.
Nevertheless I admitted it and such is the stream of Thy love
that annihilates the impurity of heart, gets rid of trivial,
hostile aspirations or thoughts and one becomes purified by its laving.
Why should I control breathing, utter the holy name,
and closing eyes endeavour for concentrating my mind at all?
Thy countenance smiles into the tears of mine and I taste its loveliness.
That much accomplishment is enough for me.
Thou art my accomplishment; where else should I endeavour for it?
For the attainment of emancipation and perfection where else should I go
when Thou and none else but Thou art my emancipation and perfection?
