      Some Mystic Verses of Sant Daya Bai

      My heart burns, O RAM [God], with the fire of separation;
      I yearn to behold you, O lovely enchanter of my heart.

      I am perpetually tormented by the anguish
      of separation;
      O come to me on the waves of compassion
      and do not torture me.

      The path of love is a very difficult one
      and the world cannot understand it.
      He alone can know its ups and downs
      who has himself experienced its pain.

      Says Daya, repeat the Name of the Lord
      which alone is the True Essence in this world.
      By repeating the Lord's Name,
      you become the Lord Himself
      and come to know of the Supreme Secret.

      --- Sant Daya Bai

      O Lord, I am mad for Your love,
      but who can understand my pain?
      None but the wounded can know of the
      anguish of the wounded.

      --- Sant Mira Bai
