On the day I depart, let me say this and leave.
All what I saw, and all what I had ,
were unsurpassable beyond compare.
Amidst the sea of heavenly lights,
A lotus with hundred petals shines.
I was fortunate to taste its honey,
I felt deeply blessed.
On the day I depart, let me make this known and leave.
In the playhouse of all worldly forms,
I played many a time,
I caught the sight of formless Divine with my own eyes.
The One who is beyond touch , appeared in full form.
(And I prayed )
‘If You would end my worldly journey here, please end it now ’.
At the time I depart, let me make this known and leave.
