English Translation by the Author Dr. Harekrishna Meher

Śiśu -Gitika
(Song for Child)
= = = = = = = = = = = =


Behold the effulgent form of divinity
in the soft figure of a child,
which is endowed with pure,
white and beautiful teeth. (0)

Verily in the mortal world,
the child forms heavenly bliss,
the fruit of conjugal figures.
In the lucid river
of child’s body, overflows
the cheerfulness of love-creeper. (1)

With indistinct utterance
of words, splendid is the sweet smile
of the child and so an object
of ever-remembrance.
In the lovely lips, there shine
delicacy and lucidity. (2)

Sarasvati, the Goddess of Speech,
spreads her nectareous jingllng,
graceful and faultless.
Auspicious divinity and purity
lightly and delightfully dance
in the utterance of the child. (3)

Music, unread and unknowingly attained,
flows fluently in the cries
and gaieties of the child.
Guilelessness and swiftness really abide
in the child who is rendered
into a miniature form of Cupid. (4)

In every limb of the child,
reigns the guileless comeliness
sprung from the creation
of the omnipresent Supreme Self.
In the ambrosial abode of child’s figure,
abide innocence as well as sagacity.
Behold the effulgent divine form
in the delicate figure of the child. (5)
