Chhandaa Giitam: Swami - The Ocean

Swami – The Ocean

(A poem by Smt. Chhandaa Chandra on Shri Datta Swami)


O Swami! You are the ocean of compassion,

(compassion:- love)

And I am just a part of drop in that ocean.

Like river mixes with sea in the ocean,

I too want to mix into you with passion.

God, full of compassion, makes my mind pure,

This devotee of You gets complete, not attracted by any lure.

(lure:- worldly pleasure)

I want to walk along with You beside,

And to converse with You all aside.

(converse:- conversation)

O the fullest! You made my life fulfilled,

I am bound with You forever, all worldly wish killed.

I get You within me at each and every step,

If I slip to be with You, I wish my life snap.

(snap:- abrupt closing)

The binding between You and me, may be from many births,

But I feel I received You just now, full of mirth.

(mirth:- gladness accompanied with laughter)
