I shall move in a hurry and proceed soon.
I shall see the countenance of the Dark One .


If by the guard I am restrained
At the gate where the lions stand ,


I won’t budge an inch or yield;
I shall, at once, push my way forward.


Dust of the twenty-two steps
Shall I rub all over my limbs.


I shall beg and receive a morsel
Of the holy food, Kaivalya .


The sacred banyan tree is truly blessed.
With an ability to grant every wish, it is endowed.


Blessed too is the dark doorway ;
I shall see him from behind the pillar


On which the Lord’s eagle-carrier
Garuda offers his prayer.
I shall see the countenance of the Dark One.


Inside the hall of audience
I shall join the saints with great rejoice;


Within my heart I shall chant your name in silence.
Says Salabega, the lowly one,


I am a Yavana, an outcaste and fallen;
At your lotus feet shall I seek solace.
I shall see the countenance of the Dark One.
