Mane Prane Dehe Simar Bandhan

Mane prane dehe simar bandhan niyata amare dahe

Ami simahin asimer srote chalechi satata bahe

Mukti amar niyata sange shakti amar nai

Jibane amar tomar bijoy kebali niyata chai


The bondage of the finite binds me

And stifles my body, vital and mind.

Yet within my heart is the liberation-river

Flowing toward the endless and infinite Source.

Alas, power in the outer world —

I have none.

I desire nothing

But Your complete Victory

In my inner life and outer world.
