Supreme, teach me how to surrender

O grant my heart love!
Grant my heart oneness-love
To accept the whole world
As its own.
I do not want to see any suffering
In the hearts of all the three worlds.

- Sri Chinmoy.

Translation of Bishwa bhuvan karite apan

~

Beyond thought and beyond the mind,
O beautiful One, You abide.
Do fulfil this body, vital, mind and heart of mine.
May I have this sense of fulfilment
In all my achievements,
Taking shelter at Your Feet divine.

- Sri Chinmoy

Translation of Chinta atite maner atite sundara

~

Loving this world,
I have entered into this life of darkness-night
Smilingly,
With the hope to transform this sombre world.
This is not my game, this is Your own world-game.
I bow to You again and again.
Smashing asunder my life’s somnolent door, Mother,
Today capture and claim my heart for good.

- Sri Chinmoy

Translation of Dharanire basi bhalo

~

The life divine shall dawn.
Each human life shall smile.
All the cosmic gods shall descend,
Loving this world of ours.

- Sri Chinmoy

Translation of Dibya jiban asibe

~

Inside of me is the beauty of endless forms.
Although in the outer life I am useless
And of no consequence,
O Lord of the Universe,
Do capture me and claim me
As Your own, very own.

- Sri Chinmoy

Translation of Antare mor ananta rup

~

In atom and in pollen
And in human frames
My life abides.
All beauty am I, immutable am I.
I drink my ambrosia all alone.

- Sri Chinmoy.

Translation of Anute renute sakala tanute

~

I am ready to believe that You love
the Duet of this world.
But tell me, who has created poverty,
suffering, wild mockery
And death pangs, if not You?

- Sri Chinmoy.

Translation of Basiyacho bhalo dharanir dhuli ta nahe karinu bishwas

~

Truth is my life.
Truth is my meditation.
Always I seek for ever-transcending Truth.
This Truth knows no end;
This Truth transcends itself in Infinity’s Light.

- Sri Chinmoy.

Translation of Satya amar pran satya amar dhyan

~

May the finite lose its existence-life
In the heart of the Ocean of Delight.
May my heart-lyre play the ecstasy-music
Of Transcendence-Height.

- Sri Chinmoy.

Translation of Sima mile jak asimer buke ananda parabare

~

Infinity has accepted me.
Alas, I cannot house Infinity.
No words have I, no hope have I.
Long lost have I my reminiscence-light.
Yet my old virtuous life
Has made me see the great Silence-Light.

- Sri Chinmoy.

Translation of Simar majhare

~

All human lives are dear to me.
Nobody is a stranger to me.
The whole world is mine,
My soul-garment and my own peace-vest.

- Sri Chinmoy.

~

Silence, silence,
You are the Infinity
Of my soul’s dawn.
Silence, silence,
You are the hope-vine
Of my body’s night.

- Sri Chinmoy.
