Ei Jibaner Mahanander Halo Aji Puta

Ei jibaner mahanander halo aji puta bhor
Aloker sathe mitali karechhi nahi ar ama ghor
Asha sindhur parapare heri turiya dhamer tari
Hriday gabhire arun charane bandini sharbari


Today the hallowed hour of Highest Delight
has dawned in this life.
Today I have made friends with
the Light of the Supreme.
Darkness no more, darkness nowhere.
Beyond the river of hope I see the
Boat of the Transcendental Realm.
The night of aeons is captured
And its surrender is made in the deepest
depths of my heart,
At the feet of my inner sun.
