People call me an atheist

People call me an atheist but what can I do?  
I neither have any knowledge of Thy worship
nor do I know the singing of Thy praise.  
Curling incense before Thyself also is absolutely unknown to me.  
Owing to the realization of Thee in the entire universe
my speech has become silent
and I myself have become the flower of Thy worship.

People call me an atheist but what can I do?  
I am neither interested in keeping Thy garland round my neck
nor have I any liking for saffron or ashes on the forehead.  
The loud and long prayers conducted for Thy sake are also beyond my imagination.  
Mad after Thy fragrant feet,
I wander after Thee and hope to become the favorite garland of Thine.

People call me an atheist but what can I do?  
I don’t know how to anoint or perform rituals.  
I possess no intellect for the comprehension of penance too.  
Seated in my chamber’s dark corner, with tear-looded eyes,
I behold the fascinating face of Thine
and pass the valuable days of my life.  
In the divine delight of witnessing Thee in the universe
I pass the days of my life.

People call me an atheist but what can I do?

- Shri Yogeshwarji
