Ami jabo ami jabo ami jabo hridaya pure Agni sadhak bahni premik phutechi aj agun sure Lobher bandhan moher shasan Doinya jatan bhagna swapan Abasheshe ek nimeshe ajanate bahu dure Simar kole asim dule Kanur benu jiban mule Mahashiber pralay nachan nutan srijan jore ghure [Note: Sri Chinmoy borrowed this tune from the Bengali devotional song "Phire Chalo". The lyrics of this song were written by Sourindra Mohan Mukhopadhyay and the melody was composed by Raichand Baral. The song was featured in the 1933 film "Chandidas" and made immortal by the blind singer Krishna Chandra Dey]
I shall enter into my heart’s citadel-city. I am a worshipper of the Fire God; I am a lover of the Fire God. I have blossomed today Into the melody of fiery flames. The bondage of possession-greed, The iron control of dark attachment, The torture of penury, The pangs of my shattered dreams Have at last disappeared in a twinkling into the farthest, remote unknown. On my finite lap the Infinite is swinging. The ever-intoxicating and ever-energising Flute of Sri Krishna Is the very origin of my life’s journey. The Destruction-Dance of the great Lord Shiva Ushers in a new creation Encircling fast my earth-bound life.
