  • Ever since I’ve seen You O Guru Datta, why does my heart long to attain You?
    Was far from You till now; why does my heart long to come closer to You?
    Had a lot of complaints in life; why does my heart want to forget them all?
    Ever since I’ve seen You O Guru Datta, why does my heart long to attain You?

    Got cheated; faced insults; why does my heart want to open it all out to You?
    Was all that pain not enough? Why then does my heart want to love You?
    Storms came and ravaged gardens; why does my heart want to raise a new one?
    Ever since I’ve seen You O Guru Datta, why does my heart long to attain You?

    Loneliness was my enemy; why does my heart want to make friends with it now?
    The sorrows of the past; why does the heart want to adorn in the hair like flowers?
    The world that gave so many memories; why does my heart want to forget it now?
    Ever since I’ve seen You O Shri Datta, why does my heart long to attain You alone?

    The people who were in my life; why does my heart wish to erase their memories?
    If memories bring pain, why then does my heart want to drown in Your memories?
    The tears that I hated; why then does my heart wish to shed them in Your longing?
    Ever since I’ve seen You O Shri Datta, why does my heart long to attain You alone?

    This world had robbed me, but my heart only feels like being robbed by You.
    In spite of being far from You O Datta, my heart wants to be enchanted by You.
    O Prabhu Datta, I don’t know why my heart simply wishes to succumb to You?
    What is this love O Lord, that my heart wishes to attain nothing other than You?

    What is this agony Lord, in which my heart only wishes to get even more restless?
    Knowing that I can’t reach You Lord, yet why does my heart wish to attain You?
    Even though afar, but ever in Your thoughts; My heart wishes to revel only in You.
    What is this love O Swami, in which my heart finds a sort of solace even in pain?

    O Traveler of the Endless Universe! My heart only wants my mind to wander behind You.
    O Lord Venu Gopala! My heart only longs to be lost forever in the sweet melody of Your flute.
    O Three-Eyed Destroyer of Tripura! My heart wants to burn my life with Your Knowledge-Fire.
    O Lord Datta, my heart wants to simply attain and attain and forever keep attaining You.

    Being fully content with You, yet I know not why my heart still keeps yearning for You.
    Pardon me, but what to do? My heart wants to keep increasing this greed of mine!
    What is this hunger O Swami? In which, every moment my heart wants to go on eating?
    The yearning to reach You, sunk deep in the mind; My heart keeps longing to attain You.

    But whenever You come before me, I know not why my mind becomes quiet.
    Unable to speak even though I want to, I feel as if words have forsaken me.
    In Your own sweet voice O Swami, it’s as if all words have been absorbed.
    Even without saying anything to You O Swami, it’s as if everything reaches You.

    But finding You far from me, whenever my restless heart fills with fear,
    I drown myself only in Your thoughts and my mind just goes on writing.
    Writing to You of all things in my heart, when my mind finds You with me,
    Then alone over my restless fearful mind, comes a semblance of safe peace.

    Your love is such that my heart just wants to keep getting tied up in it forever.
    Giver of Infinite Love! My heart only wants to be drowned in Your unfathomable love.
    There are no words for Your kindness; my heart just wants to surrender to You.
    Where there are no words; just Your fathomless Love; there my mind just falls silent.
