Who wants to open the eyes,
Let me remain blinded,
Who wants to see the reality,
Let me remain deluded,
What else do I need, when you are with me,
Even if I am empty, I am fully contented.

Who wants to know the truth,
Let me remain deluded,
Who wants to see the day,
Let me be in darkness,
What else do I need, when you are with me,
Even if I am fallen, I am high risen.

Who wants to be the rich,
Let me remain poor,
Who wants to attain enlightenment,
Let me be in ignorance,
What else do I need, when you are with me,
Even if I am fool, I am the wisest.

Who wants the victory,
Let me remain defeated,
Who wants perfection,
Let me remain imperfect,
What else do I need, when you are with me,
Even if I have none, I have all.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
