    पाप-भरी प्रार्थना से

    प्रभु प्रसन्न नहीं होते,

    पावन की प्रसन्नता वह

    पाप के त्याग पर आधारित है।


    मैंने अग्नि की परीक्षा दी है

    ऐसा बार-बार कह कर,


    अपने को निष्पाप सिद्ध करना चाहता है

    यह पाप ही नहीं

    अपितु महापाप है।


    तुममें इतना पाप का संग्रह है

    कि जो

    युगों-युगों तक

    जलाने से जल नहीं सकता,

    धुलाने से धुल नहीं सकता।

    प्रलय के दिनों में

    जल की ही नहीं,

    अग्नि की वर्षा भी

    तेरे ऊपर हुई कई बार!

    फिर भी,

    तेरी कालिमा में कुछ तो...अन्तर आता ?


    अरे और सुन!

    Wants to prove himself sinless –

    It is not only an ordinary sin

    But a heinous crime.


    There is so much storage of sinfulness in you,

    That, for ages –

    it can't be burnt away

    By setting it on fire,

    Can't be dissolved by washing it off.

    In the days of universal annihilation

    Not only the water,

    But the fire also was showered

    Upon you, once and again !

    Even then, Thine

    blemish should have been...somewhat lessened?


    And hark ! indeed!

    It doesn't matter, outwardly,

    Which seems to be enveloped into the blackish cloudiness- That wooden piece of acacia tree too

    Looking like the moonless night in the dark fortnight of Sāvana (month)

    Passes through the ordeal by fire, and, In the very first attempt, without frequent repetitions-
