Ki khlur ki la kah syrngiew,
Ki lyoh slap ki tap ïa ki lyoh,

Ha ka jingtyllun ka lyer ba siaw wiaw-wiaw.

Tang ba la duh noh na ka iing set byndi,
Ba jynrat ïa ki dieng naduh tynrai,
Da kaba sar naphang ïa baroh na ka lynti iaid.
Ka duriaw ka la iasnoh kti ha ka jingiabeh thong,
Bad ka paswut shajrong lum kum lat-lat,
Ban poi sha ka sahit bneng ba kah dum,
Ka jingtyngshaiñ ka jingshai baphyrnai.
Kaba pynpaw ha baroh ki liang,
Da ki hajar, hajar ki syrngiew jingkah dum
Jong ka jingiap ba pyn-i kynsha bad ba-iongngit…
Ka jingpang khlam ba saphriang kylleng bad ki jingsngewsih.
Ka da shad lamwir lem bad ka jingkmen,
Ale, Mei, ale!
Naba long ba sngew shyrkhei ka kyrteng Jongpha,
—Ka Jingiap long ka jingring-pynhiar mynsiem Jongpha,
Bad ha man ki synjam bakhynñiuh,
Ba pynjot ïa ka pyrthei junom bhor,
“Ka por” Jong Pha, ka Nongpynjot-ia baroh!
Ale, Ko Mei, ale!
Mano ba shlan ïa ka jingieid ba pynsngewsih,
Bad kdup ha ka dur jong ka Jingiap,
Shad ha ka Jingshad ba pynjot noh,

Ha u te I Mei i wan.

Kali the Mother

The stars are blotted out,
The clouds are covering clouds,
It is darkness vibrant, sonant.
In the roaring, whirling wind
Are the souls of a million lunatics
Just loose from the prison-house,
Wrenching trees by the roots,
Sweeping all from the path.
The sea has joined the fray,
And swirls up mountain-waves,
To reach the pitchy sky.
The flash of lurid light
Reveals on every side
A thousand, thousand shades
Of Death begrimed and black —
Scattering plagues and sorrows,
Dancing mad with joy,
Come, Mother, come!
For Terror is Thy name,
Death is in Thy breath,
And every shaking step
Destroys a world for e’er.
Thou “Time”, the All-Destroyer!
Come, O Mother, come!
Who dares misery love,
And hug the form of Death,
Dance in Destruction’s dance,
To him the Mother comes.

– Swami Vivekananda

Angels Unawares (II)

Swami Vivekananda

One drunk with wine of wealth and power
And health to enjoy them both, whirled on
His maddening course, till the earth, he thought,
Was made for him, his pleasure-garden, and man,
The crawling worm, was made to find him sport,
Till the thousand lights of joy, with pleasure fed,
That flickered day and night before his eyes,
With constant change of colours, began to blur
His sight, and cloy his senses; till selfishness,
Like a horny growth, had spread all o’er his heart;
And pleasure meant to him no more than pain,
Bereft of feeling; and life in the sense,
So joyful, precious once, a rotting corpse between his arms,
Which he forsooth would shun, but more he tried, the more
It clung to him; and wished, with frenzied brain,
A thousand forms of death, but quailed before the charm,
Then sorrow came — and Wealth and Power went —
And made him kinship find with all the human race
In groans and tears, and though his friends would laugh,
His lips would speak in grateful accents —
‘O Blessed Misery!’

Ka jingleit jngoh ba ar u M ia u Ramakrishna kala jia long haka baranda phang shathie mihngi kumba 8(phra) baje ei ei mynstep. Kala dei ka por khitmoh ia u kynrad ba u nong khitmoh u dang slem, mar ia poi ka dang dei ka por slap, ka lyer khriat ka dang iai beh, ula kup da i jainkup ba stang thoh sawdong. Haba la iohi ia u M, u kynrad ula ong. “Te, phi la wan. Kala bha eh. Shong shong hangne.”U la shu phuh samrkhie. Ula jyngngan kumno re haba ula kren.
U Ramakrishna (ha u M): “Hangno phi shong?”
U M: Ha Kolkata, babu.”
U Ramakrishna: “Hangno phi sah shane pat?”
U M: Nga sah ha Baranagore ha iing i hymmen tymmen u Ishan Kaviraj.
U Ramakrishna: “O, ha iing u Ishan? Ka bha eh, kumno u long u Keshab mynta? Ula shitom jur te.”
U M: Hooid kein nga ruh nga la iohsngew kumta, hynrei nga ngeit ba ila koit mynta.”
U Ramakrishna: Nga la buh -thong ban duwai lehniam iaka Mei-blei da ka snepkor ba im bad ka shini khnang ban koit noh u Keshab. Teng teng dang phyrngab haki por mynstep, nga ju khie bad ialam hakhmat jong ka. Ko Mei-blei, sngewbha to punkhiah pat ia u Keshab. Lada u Keshab ym don shuh, badno ngan ia kren ia khana pat haba nga leit ha Kolkata. Bad dei namarkata ba nga la kut jingmut ban tyrwa haka Mei-blei da u snepkor bad ka shini.
To iathuh ia nga, phi da tip shisha ba u Mr. Cook uba la wan ha Kolkata? Ka dei shisha ba ula ai jingkren? Shisien u Keshab ula ialam ia nga ha ka kynja liang ba pyniaid da ka tdem bad une u Mr. Cook ula don lang ha kata ka kynhun.
M: Hooid babu, nga la iohsngew kumta hi; hynrei ngam pat ju iohsngew ia ki jingkren jong u. Ngam da tip bha shaphang jong u.
U Ramakrishna: U hynmen u Pratap u la wan hangne. U la sah katto-katne sngi. Um don kam don jam ban trei bad u la ong ba u kwah ban sah hangne. Nga tip ba u la iehnoh ia la ka tnga bad ia la ki khun ha u kthaw kurim la jong. U la iehnh bein ia ki! Kumta nga la ai jingsneng tyngeh ia u. Tang ban im kam kai! U dei u kpa jong bun ngut ki khun!

Nga la tim tyngeh ia u bad nga la ong ba u dei ban wad la ka kam. Te, u la mon hi ban mih noh nangne.
“Phi la shongkurim?”
M: Hooid babu.
U Ramakrishna(da kaba kyiuh): Oh Ramlal!(U pyrsa jong u Ramakrishna, bad u lyngdoh ka iingmane ka Blei Kali) Ah, u la shongkurim.
Kum u briew uba la leh kam sang bashyrkhei, u M u la shong khlem khih, u pyndem la ki khmat hapoh. U la pyrkhat.“Ka long kaba sang seh ban shongkurim?.
U Kynrad u la bteng pat, “Phi la don khun don kti?”
U M ha kane ka khyllipmat te u la kyndeh ka dohnud. U la pasiaw ha ka sur kaba kyiuh, “Hooid babu, nga la don khun.”
U Ramakrishna u la kren sngewsih kthang, Wow ko mei jong nga! U la da don khun ruh!
Ba kumta u M ba la shah mai u la shongkhop khlem kren shikyntien ruh. U la sngew jah burom katta katta. Hadien khyndiat por, u Ramakrishna u la peit ia u da ka khmat kaba sbun bad kaba sngewieid:
Peit shane, phi don ka jinglong babha de. Nga tip ia ki da kaba peit ha ka shyllangmat uno uno u briew, ha ki khmat jong u bad kumta ter ter. Te, iathuh ianga mynta, ka tnga jongphi ka long kaba kumno? Ka don kano kano ka jinglong bakynja mynsiem, ne ka don ha ka jingshah khring ha ki bor maian ka pyrthei?.
M: Ka shu biang hi. Hynrei nga tieng ban ong ba ka long ka briew kaba dang duna ha ka jingnang-jingstad U Kynrad (ha ka dak bym i hun mynsiem). Bad phi pat phi long u briew uba lanang-lastad!

Kat haduh kane ka khyllipmat ka jingsngewthuh jong u ka long ba uno uno uba la ioh jingnang-jingtip na ki kot pule bad ki skul. Hadien pat u la sngewthuh ia la ka jingsngewthuh bakla jong u. La pynsngewthuh ia u ban tip ia u Blei ka long ka jingnang-jingstad hynrei tang ban tip ia u ka long ka jingbieit. Haba u Ramakrishna u la pynpaw. “Bad phi long u briew uba lanang-lastad, ka jingsngew khyllew u M ka la nang ktah shuh shuh.
U Kynrad: Niuma, phi ngeit ha u Blei ba don dur ne M: Are u la nang lyngngoh shuh shuh halade: Kumno u briew u lah ban ngeit ha u Blei ba khlem dur haba man u briew u ngeit ha u Blei ba don dur? Bad lada u briew u ngeit ha u Blei ba khlem dur, kumno pat u briew u ngeit ba u Blei u don dur? Ka lah seh ban ong ba kine baroh ar ki jingmut ba ia takhuh-pakhuh kin long kiba shisha ha kajuh ka por? Ka lah mo ka kynja um kaba lieh kum ka dud kan long iong?.
M: Babu, nga kham sngewmon ban pyrkhat ia u Blei ba khlem dur.
Kynrad: Hooid, kaba bha. Ka biang hi ban don jingngeit ha kaba kumno kumno ruh. Phi ngeit ha u Blei ba khlem dur kata ruh ka long kaba shisha. Hynrei man ka khyllipmat wat ju pyrkhat ba tang kane ka long kaba shisha bad baroh kiwei pat kiba bakla. Kynmaw ba u Blei ba don dur ka long kajuh hi kum u Blei ba khlem dur. Hynrei skhem jingmut triang ha la ka jong ka jingngeit.
Ka jingpynshai ba baroh ar ki long shisha kumjuh ka pynlyngngoh ia u M. Um pat la ju ioh jinghikai kumta na ki kot. Ba kumta, ka jingsngew khyllew jong u ka la nang kham hiar shuh shuh, hynrei naba kam shym pat la pynduh-pyndam syndon ia ka jingsngew sarong jong u, u la ia pyn-i nia shuh shuh bad la u Kynrad.
M: Babu, tharai lada u briew u ngeit ha u Blei ba don dur. Ka tikna ba Um dei kum ka dur dewbyrtha!
Kynrad (da kaba knieh ktien). Hynrei, balei ka dur dewbyrtha? Ka dei ka dur jong u Mynsiem.
