Andhar Ghare Jwalchhe Ek

Composed on Nov. 22nd, 1975

Lyrics:

Andhar ghare jwalchhe ek
    Chhota pradip shikha
Bidya nai buddhi nai
    Khudra ahamika
Abodh bhabe eman alo
    Kehai dekhe nai
Muhurmuhu tahar katha
    Bale sabar thai

Translation:

Sri Chinmoy's Translation:

In a dark room
A small candle is burning.
No intelligence, no wisdom;
What I have is only eyeless pride.
The ignorance-soul in me thinks and feels
That nobody is as wise as it is
And it always speaks of its own existence —All in hyperbole.
