Shanta Saral Hate Pari

Shanta saral hate pari jakhan labhi gyan
Dure thake pira dayi bhranta apaman
Saman bhebe man apaman
  Chalte habe jiban pathe
Thai pabo ma takhan ami
   Taba bijoy rathe


When knowledge dawns, I become sincere,
I become simple, I become pure.
I cast aside all failure, all defeats,
All the things that drag me down.
Success and failure, victory and defeat
I shall encounter while walking along
Eternity’s road.
But if I take them as one, not two,
Then You will offer me Your
Victory’s chariot.
