''See this man! See this man!
How he has mastered and digested
The countless schools of philosophy'' -
Thus they hailed him
And in the open assembly accepted him.
And so I danced and danced not.
Melting in heart and becoming malleable in love I cry:
''Oh! Thou the Pure! The Only One!
My Being Primal! My Light Divine!
My God Pervasive! My Lord!''
Thus hailing, I pine and droop.
Seeing that and seeing the sadness in my fall,
Thou say not in loving kindness, ''Come, my dear fellow,''
But in the conventional way
Have encouraged this hard state.
Who did this?
Oh! Thou the Treasure Inexhaustible
Of those who seek without seeking for themselves.
Oh! Thou the Reality that eludes seeking!
The God of Knowledge that dwells in my thoughts!
Thou the Bliss Refulgent!
