Meditation-Sun

Last modified December 13, 2012

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

Swapan Tari

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.

    • Hi Ashok, Most of the tracks are .m4a. If you have a Mac you can download ffmpegX to convert to mp3. If not, here are some solutions we have not tried ourselves but may work: you oculd use WinFF for Windows, there also seems to be an online conversion site http://media.io/. Let us know how you get on!
