Ke Jane Deher Parinati

Ke jane deher parinati
Dudin pare ki habe tar gati
Dehir sathe hale parichoy
Deha gele ar karina bhoy
Deha chini dehi amar par
Shudhu deha niye taito kari ghar
Bhule thaki deher parinati
Taito amar hoina urdhagati


Who does not know the end of a human body,
What will happen to the body at long last?
When I become acquainted with the embodied soul,
I become aware of the body,
But not of what is inside the body.
Therefore, I always sport with the body
And I forget that the body will one day expire.
Therefore, I make no upward progress.
