ARTI TO AVATAR MEHER BABA

 

 

Where imagination and word cannot reach
That Infinite One Thou art!
The Vedas say, "Thou art not this, not this!"
Boundless is Thy Glory.
   
O glorious Ancient One!
Eternally and infinitely compassionate!
Redeemer of mankind!
   
  I offer my mind to Thee.
  Accept it O Meher,
  as my Arti.
   
Burning incense, light and sandalwood,
Offering fruit, flowers and food,
Are but a returning of what is Thine.
How can I boast of them as mine?
   
  I offer my mind to Thee.
  Accept it O Meher, as my Arti.
   
The cause of creation Thou art.
The Saviour of the world Thou art.
Matchless Thou art. There is none
But Thee, O Truth-incarnate Avatar!
   
  I offer my mind to Thee.
  Accept it O Meher,
  as my Arti.
   
Pervading all creation is Thy Maya —
And what is Maya but Thy shadow!
None has fathomed the depth of Thee.
Verily, Thou art Infinity!
   
  I offer my mind to Thee.
  Accept it O Meher,
  as my Arti.
   
When man knows not himself,
How can he realize Thy glory?
And, what he utters in his ignorance
Is yet a singing of Thy praise.
   
  I offer my mind to Thee.
  Accept it O Meher,
  as my Arti.
   
There is no limit to Thy compassion.
Could anyone give Thee anything 0 lord!
Bestow on Thy lovers, we beg:
An abiding remembrance of Thee.
   
  I offer my mind to Thee.
  Accept it O Meher,
  as my Arti.
   
O glorious Ancient One!
Eternally and infinitely compassionate!
Redeemer of mankind!
 
       I offer my mind to Thee.
       Accept it O Meher,
       as my Arti.
