Jatri

Jatri jatri jatri jatri jatri
Mora bidhatar asimer patha jatri
Badhar duar bhengechhi ebar
Ghor tamasar abachetanar
Chira durbar mrityu bhitir ratri
Dakichhe tarani alor bhorer
Bhaba kandari premer dorer
Mukti dishari maha ajanar sindhu
Pijush desher paran jiniya
Param prabhur pataka bahiya
Phiribo amara rupantarer bindu

Translation

We are the Pilgrims of the Lord Supreme
on the Path of Infinity.
At this time we have broken asunder
Obstruction’s door;
We have broken asunder the Night of
tenebrous darkness, inconscience
and the eternal, indomitable fear of death.
The Boat of the Supernal Light’s Dawn
is beckoning us
And the World-Pilot of the hallowed bond
of Love Divine is beckoning us.
The Liberator’s Hands are drawing us
to the Ocean of the Great Unknown.
Having conquered the Life-Breath of the
Land of Immortality,
And carrying aloft the Banner of the
Lord Supreme,
We shall return: we, the drops and flames
of Transformation-Light.
