Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!


(Rāmānanda Dāsa) #1

Joy Nitai!! This is the english translation from the Portuguese version. I did not try to follow a metre pattern here, so that’s just for reference.

In my dreams I scavenge for memories
from the night I flooded in hopefulness.
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Through numberless corridors I walk
with the expectancy for another talk
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Heady embrace inebriateth me in lull,
now tamed, Thou plunderest my soul
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Tender glance that stripped my vanity,
infuseth me with the grace of dignity.
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Stunning smile that chaineth me tight,
ensnareth me in the seconds of this life.
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Why so vigorously and fast thou slipest,
knowing surely that I am the limpest?
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Dark splendour Thy soul illuminateth,
secrecy that the sages intoxicateth.
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

Thou art endless fountain of clemency,
and askest me to pray with no pendency.
Beloved friend & master, how to find Thee?
Oh Nityananda, with Thee I wish to be!

_________ ORIGINAL PORTUGUESE _________

Em meus sonhos vasculho por lembranças
da noite que me inunda de esperanças.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

Por vastas galerias eu me adentro
na esperança de haver outro encontro.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

Abraço ebriante embriaga-me de calma,
já inerme, despojaste da minh’alma.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

Tenro olhar que me extirpa da soberba,
infunde em mim a graça da nobreza.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

Deslumbrante sorriso me cativa,
me enleia nos segundos desta vida.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

Por que corres tão rápido e possante
se sabes como ando claudicante.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

Brilho negro Tua alma resplandece,
é o segredo que os sábios entorpece.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!

És infindável fonte de clemência
e só me pedes que ore sem pendência.
Amado amigo e mestre, por onde andas?
Contigo quero estar, ó Nityānanda!
