A Lyric to Ramana
« on: January 22, 2010, 11:38:56 AM »
Extract from Harindranatha Chattopadhyaya's poem in the Volume
6 of Arunachala's Ramana, Boundless Ocean of Grace.)

You are a huge horizon bent
Over a world of discontent
To bless us till our hearts are lent
A tine or two from out of your store.
You are so close what though remote
Even in storm you strike a note
Of safety while our floundering boat
Gives up all hope of reaching the shore.

Give us the high illumined grace
To make the heart your dwelling place,
To see you clearly, face to face,
In all we feel and say and do;
and may we evermore contain
Your Presence in each passing pain,
Even as drought desires the rain,
You mercy that is coming through.

Increase our silence and our power,
Be with us every fleeting hour.
O set our barest things in flower
and with your love's divine increase
Within us, let the heart concern
Itself with you who reign and burn
Through every pore at every turn
Moulding the final masterpiece.

Arunachala Siva.
