In thoughts of you, my unsurpassable friend and Guru,
My suffering is relieved,
I, the seeker of the unexcelled Truth, now sing you a fervent song.
Being separated by thousands of miles of distance,
I would be joyful and happy to see you,
Though limited in reverence, I wish to see you,
Though limited in Faith, I wish to join you,
The more I meditate and contemplate, the more I long for my Guru.
How happy I would be to imbibe your Teaching on the essence of Awakening the genius within,
Though of simple mind, I wish to learn,
Though ignorant, I wish to attain understanding,
The more I contemplate, the more I think of you,
The more I meditate, the more I think of my Perfect Guru.
You may be Teaching the transcendental insight of phenomena,
If I could imbibe the teaching, I would be joyful and happy,
Though lacking merit, I wish to be initiated,
Though too poor to offer much, I honestly desire It,
Though poor my perseverance, I wish to practice the Unsurpassed Way,
Though short my diligence, I have an inflexible need for learning,
The more I contemplate, the more I think of you.
There are other students more advanced in the Path to the Ultimate,
And, though inferior my Experience and Realization,
I wish to compare my understanding with theirs,
Though in my deepest Faith and Veneration I have never been apart from you,
I am now tortured by my need to see you,
This fervent longing agonizes me,
This great torment suffocates me,
Pray, my gracious Guru, relieve me from this torment.
