Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpita hai
Tere hee dena hai jo hai.
Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai
Na priti hai pratiti hai, na hi puja ki shakti hai
Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan,
meraa kan kan samarapita hai
Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere,
vicharon mein, pukaron mein.
Banaale yantra ab mujhko
mere saravatra samarapita hai

My Gurudev, I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet.
Whatever I have, you have given to me, and I dedicate it all to you.
I have no love, nor do I know you. I dont even have the strength to worship you.
But this mind of mine, this body of mine, my every atom is dedicated to you.
You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts. You are the one who I call out to.
Now make me your instrument... all I am I offer to you.
