Rajar Dulal Pather Kangal

Rajar dulal pather kangal

Phire pathe pathe

Khudar anna lagi

Kena he bidhata khide khide bale

Kandiya uthile jagi

Jagiya sakale dekhe purabasi

Raja dure dure ghure upabasi

Sakal ange bedanar dage dagi

Ogo narayan karuna plaban magi


You are the divine prince,

Yet you roam from door to door

Like a true beggar.

Constantly you are suffering from

Wild hunger.

Constantly you are tortured by

The buffets of life.


The King, too,

Has accepted and embraced

Your fate.

The immeasurable dole of

Human creation,


He embodies cheerfully

And faultlessly.

O Lord, I implore You and Your

Eternity’s Compassion-flood.
