Main to Hoon Isa Paar Sarit Kay March 30, 1984


मैं तो हूँ इस पार सरित के
नहीं, नहीं जानती जल पर चलना॥
Main to hoon isa paar sarit kay,
Naheen jaanatee jal par chalanaa.
The soul who heard the voice of her beloved one, the Lord, from a far distance on the other side of the river—the river being the symbol of the world—says: “O Lord, you have been calling me from that side, and I am on this side of the river. Your voice has compelled me to rush and meet you immediately, but my weakness is that I have not learned how to swim across this river. I do not know how to swim or how to walk on the water.
