Lobhe Pap Jani

Composed on Dec. 31st, 1974


Lobhe pap jani
  Pape je maran hai
Tabu kena daki
  Lobhe pran anginai
Din haye chira sukhi
  Nai jar lobh
Tyag majhe kabhu
  Nahi raje kona khobh


Sri Chinmoy's Translation:

Greed begets sin;
Sin begets death.
I know this; yet I allow
Greed to enter into my heart’s core.
He is happy, really happy,
Who has conquered his outer greed,
Although he poverty-stricken.
He is really happy
Who becomes the God-message
     of self-sacrifice.
