Dharar Buke Esechile

Dharar buke esechile
Eksa sarat age
Tomar smriti smaran kari
Baroi anurage


Into the world you came
To be a member of the earth-family
For fifty fleeting years,
And your Heaven-return now completes
One hundred years — one long century.
Your sweetness-reminiscences tearfully gladden
And enlighten us — all your dear ones.
[Dedicated by Sri Chinmoy to his mother Yogamaya]
