Amar Priya Tumi Prabhu

Composed on Nov. 22nd, 1975


Amar priya tumi prabhu sabar priya tumi
Tabu kena tomar paye nahi mora chumi
Mukhe tomai prabhu daki prane bhabi ari
Ghor bipade bhaye mari taito tomai smari
Jano moder praner garal khama tabu karo
Andhar pathe mrittyu ele dharo more dharo
Gabhir snehe dharo moder hriday tari khani
Abodh mora tumi je ke kabhu nahi jani


Sri Chinmoy's Translation:

You are dear to me.
You are dear to everybody else, too.
How is it that we do not worship Your Feet,
Kiss Your Feet, knowing perfectly well
That we call You our Lord Supreme?
This is but our lip service,
But in the depths of our hearts
We do not take You
Even as a real friend of ours.
You know the poison of our mind,
Yet You are Forgiveness-sea.
When death wants to capture us,
We stand in between death and our existence;
Therefore, ignorant we are.
No matter what You do for us
We offer You not our gratitude-heart.
