Puratan smriti mane mor jage Bahu puratan smriti E dharar lagi atmatyajiya Chahi nai kabhu priti Nahi jani hai dainya kemane Hanila aghat shire Bishal hriday jachi ami mago Phirite shanti nire
Today my old reminiscences take shelter in my mind. I have offered myself to please this world, Yet I have not asked for its love in return. I do not know why I am in the poverty-world today. I need world-appreciation. O Mother of the Universe, I need a boundless heart. What for? To enter into the nest, Illumining and fulfilling, of Yours.
