Song of Lalan

As the man and woman in me
unites in love,
The brilliant beauty
Balanced on the two petalled lotus
Within me
Dazzles my eyes.
The rays
Outshine the moon
and the jewels.
Glowing on the hoods of snakes.


My skin and bone,
are turned to gold.
I am the reservoir of love
alive on the waves.
A single drop of water ,
has grown into a sea......
Unnavigable.


Lalan

sounds very esoteric and mystical.

the fusion of inner man and woman nature within one has always fascinated human mind and was the subject of gnosis. In the Gnostic Gospel we find even Jesus teaching this transformation of male and female quality, in a very deep level.

do u know what is the bangla verse of this particular song of Lalon?
