Meditation-Sun is a compilation of traditional Bengali songs and unique compositions of Sri Chinmoy, performed with the harmonium and esraj. The album was originally released in Toronto, Canada as a vinyl LP. The last four tracks include vocal singing with recitations of the English translations by the composer. These translations include:
Kata Gan Ami Geyechi Dharai
How many songs have I sung?
How many more have I still to sing
here on earth?
Within and without I have been
searching for myself through my songs.
With deep pangs my heart cries;
My self-form is not visible yet.
In the vast life-ocean, I am floating all alone.
– Kata Gan Ami, Composed and translated by Sri Chinmoy on December 17, 1972
O my dream boat, O my dream-boat,
Where do you abide?
Where do you keep the compassion-sun
Of the world of light?
O my dream boat, O my dream-boatman,
The river of my heart
And my liberation life
Ceaselessly and unconditionally call you.
– Swapan Tari, Composed and translated by Sri Chinmoy on August 27, 1974
