  • The Fire of the World : Bireshvar Chakravarti
    translated from Bengali to English by

    I'll surely go mad now.
    The fire of the world
    burns in my brain--
    how long can I bear it?
    I lost myself in the pursuit
    of women and wealth, O Tara!
    I'm possessed
    by this wretched burden,
    and I die of fatigue
    from the toil of carrying it.

    I take great pains
    to fix my mind on you,
    but it won't stay.
    It's teased by worldly affairs.
    O Mother Kali,
    your beggar servant
    pleads in desperation-
    he can turn to no one else
    on earth, in heaven, in hell!
    At your gracious feet, he begs
    that his appeal not be in vain,
    the way his life has been.

    *Tara, or "The One Who Helps The Soul Cross Over," is another name for Kali.
