Where are You, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord?

Where are You, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord?

Are You in the forest-

mesmerising all the creatures?

Are You on the Hill-

playing with your Brother?

Are You hiding on a tree-

delighting on the distress of others?

Or, Are You, once more-

playing with the hearts of others?

Where are You, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord?

 

Alas, You are an expert of avoiding Her!

You are an expert in making Her cry!

Alas, You are the expert in wasting Her life!

‘Come, come…don’t waste any more time!

Come, come… show Yourself!’

Show Yourself, so She stops crying!

So She stops waning!

So She stops dying!

 

Show Yourself, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord!

‘Oh, dearest Sakhi, don’t You worry!

Oh, dearest Sakhi, don’t You cry!

Oh, dearest Sakhi, don’t You give up Your life!

He will show up any moment now!

Just one more call: Hari, Hari, Hari!

Keep calling Him, Keep calling Him!’

Show Yourself, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord!

 

Where are You, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord?

Are you in the grazing fields-

tending all Your beloved cows?

Are you with your friends-

playing sports with them?

Are you hiding in the dark-

torturing our hearts?

Where are You, Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord?

 

‘Give up all these,

for She desires to unite,

for She desires to ignite,

the spark of love, the spark of ecstasy,

that makes Her dance, that makes Her melt,

in Your lovingly embracing arms!

Give up all these!’

Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord, Show Yourself!

Don’t You dare make Her wait!

Where are You, alas…Where are You,

Oh, Lotus-eyed Lord?!
