Puratan Smriti Mane Mor Jage

Puratan smriti mane mor jage
Bahu puratan smriti
E dharar lagi atmatyajiya
Chahi nai kabhu priti
Nahi jani hai dainya kemane
Hanila aghat shire
Bishal hriday jachi ami mago
Phirite shanti nire


Today my old reminiscences take shelter
in my mind.
I have offered myself to please this world,
Yet I have not asked for its love in return.
I do not know why I am in the poverty-world today.
I need world-appreciation.
O Mother of the Universe, I need a boundless heart.
What for? To enter into the nest,
Illumining and fulfilling, of Yours.
