Dharite Gele Jaina Dhara Hai

Dharite gele jaina dhara hai
Tabu praner katana kichu chai
Ja pele ar haina pete
Ja khele ar haina khete
Ta chere man dibas rate
Mara kiser pipasai


My vital wants to catch everything.
Alas, everything disappears before
It can catch anything
In God’s entire creation.
O mind, why do you hanker
After the fleeting and fruitless realities?
Long only for the realities
That eternally abide, eternally satisfy
Man’s eternal thirst.
