Bhakti Song 68 – I require



சிந்தையில் தூய்மை வேண்டும்

செயலிலே உண்மை வேண்டும்

வாக்கிலே அருளும் வேண்டும்

வாழ்க்கையில் கிருபை வேண்டும்

நோக்கத்தில் தெளிவு வேண்டும்

ஆக்கத்தில் ஆர்வம் வேண்டும்

அழைப்பிலே நிலைக்க வேண்டும்

அதற்கு நீ உதவ வேண்டும்

English Translation

I need purity in my mind

I should remain truthful in my act

I need grace in my words

I need your grace in life

I need clarity in my aim

I need enthusiasm in my efforts

I should remain steadfast in my call

You should help me for that

At this time (in 1994), I almost left those people with whom I had been associated from the day I became a bhakta of the Lord. But I was not happy with many things that happened around me and I was very confused about what to do next. Every new situation brings its own challenges, confusion, uncertainty and anxiety. But as I moved away from my familiar circle, I felt left alone without anyone to whom I could share and discuss that situation openly. At that time I wrote this song. As usual, when I cannot pray much, I write such songs as a part of my prayer.
