Thakurer pran thakurer dhan
Thakurer jaya gan
Jagale Bharate jagale manabe
Phutale bishwa rup
Vir sannyasi dharar hiyai
[Dedicated to Swami Vivekananda]
O Swami Vivekananda!
Sri Ramakrishna’s life-breath!
Sri Ramakrishna’s supreme gift to mankind!
Sri Ramakrishna’s victory-song all-where!
The victory-world’s delight you were.
Lo, the cyclone-valour of the Absolute.
You awakened your slumbering India,
You awakened humanity’s sleep.
In you blossomed the Form Universal.
O hero-warrior sannyasi,
In the core of the creation sleeplessly shall burn
The incense of your self-offering.
