Ke Oi Abar Bajai Banshi

Ke oi abar bajai banshi
O udasi lau go asi
Praner kali dibo dhali
Alo jele kachhe ele
Dekhbe amar niloy khali
Mukhe shudhu achhe hasi


Yonder who plays once again his flute?
Who is that God-intoxicated mendicant?
I shall offer him my life’s ignorance-ink.
Ah, I now see him approaching me
With his inner light.
His smiling face will discover my heart’s emptiness.
