Meher Baba's Gujarati Arti ( devotional song )


 BUJAVE NAAR

O God, command that the fire of ignorance
be extinguished!
Bestow upon Your lovers the light of faith
for which they long.
 
O Master Meher Baba!
We lay our heads at Your feet.
O Meher Baba! You are the One who knows
the original state of God.
 
You are the Lord of Truth!
You are the lover and Beloved in one.
You are the torrent of Infinite Knowledge
and the Ocean of Oneness.
 
O Beloved, bestow upon us seekers
the knowledge of Ezad.
For You, Paramatma, are omniscient,
Divine Knowledge Itself!
 
Intoxicate us by making us
drink from the cup of love divine.
O Saki, promise us a cup of wine!
We offer our lives in sacrifice to You.
 
Our ship founders in mid-ocean;
only if You steer can we remain afloat.
O Meher Baba! You are our captain and protector!
