Samyer Jug Aji

Samyer jug aji

Keha rahibena parer adhin

Utheche danka baji

Sukhi aj keha nai

Nahi raje alo thai

Samyer jug aji


Translation

This is the era of equality.

Nobody can dare

To subjugate

And lord it over others.

Equality’s trumpet must awaken

The somnolent human hearts.

Happiness is what we all

Want and need;

But where can we see

The face of happiness,

If not in the Haven-Light

Of the Absolute Supreme?
