Kurai Onrum Illai (No Regrets Have I)

No regrets have I My lord, None. Lord of the Written Word, My light, my sight, My very eyes No regrets, None. Though you stand Where I behold you not My light, my very eyes, Protector of all earthlings I know you sustain me Lord of the Venkata Hill so pure You meet my hunger, my thirst My hope, my prayer You keep me from harm, Lord of the Sparkling Gems, I need naught else Father of the Seven Hills, Naught else.

* * *

You stand do you not? Veiled by a screen Only the learned can part For they are the learned Which I am not But no, no regrets have I. Crowning this hill You stand as rock Giver of Boons Immutable God Father to these hills No regrets have I Govinda !

* * *

In this benighted Age of ours Lord The worst of all the Four You have entered The sanctum A shaft of granite Where though I see you not No regrets have I. Boulder of strength With the Ocean, Heaving on your breast, Of the purest compassion My Mother, My very own, who grants Anything I ask of her Can I possibly have regrets? The two of you, I know, Stand there for me Eternally No regrets have I my Govinda None, none whatsoever Govinda! Govinda! Govinda! Govinda!
