Andhar Ghare Jwalchhe Ek

Composed on Nov. 22nd, 1975


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


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.
