Tumi Je Hao Se Hao
The words of this song were written by Sri Chinmoy's eldest brother, Hriday, about Hriday's Master, Sri Aurobindo. Sri Chinmoy set them to music.
Tumi je hao se hao kiba kaj jene
Tumi je amar devata eka
Tomar karuna amar jibane
Sonar ankhare rayeche lekha
He param priya tumi kato baro
Swarup naoba janale more
Barinu tomare rateri swapane
Tomare bari jibana bhore
Amar nayane arup asim
Swarup simai tomar dehe
Jagater guru he amar guru
Ki khela khelicho dharar gehe
Translation by Sri Chinmoy
Who and what Thou art, what need have I to know:
Thou alone art my God
Thy Grace in my life
Forever has been written in golden letters.
Supreme Love! How great Thou art.
The real identity Thou mayst not reveal.
I accepted Thee in dream of night.
Thee alone I greet at the dawn of life.
I see Thee as the Formless One,
As the Infinite in Thy Universal Self-form.
O my Guru, O Guru of the world,
What kind of game art Thou playing Inside the world-room?

Hriday was the first person in Sri Chinmoy's family to join the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. After Sri Chinmoy's parents passed away, the whole family moved there. Sri Chinmoy used to tell many stories about Hriday:
When I was only one year and three months old, my eldest brother, Hriday, left the house and went to join the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in South India. It was a terrible shock to my parents. My brother had just graduated from Chittagong University, and he was thoroughly versed in Indian philosophy. Right from his childhood, Hriday had been spiritually inclined, and he used to pray and meditate all the time. more »
