This recording from 1977 brings a selection of songs sung by Sri Chinmoy accompanied by the harpsichord; – an instrument popular during the Renaissance and Baroque era.
A special track on this album is the song Tumi Je Hao Se Hao; this is a poem written by Hriday (Sri Chinmoy’s eldest brother) that Sri Chinmoy later translated and set to music.
Tumi Je Hao Se Hao
by Hriday Ranjan Ghosh
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.
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?
