Urdhe Chhila Sakal Kichhu

Urdhe chhila sakal kichhu
Hethai ami niswa
Gyan jadi pai phire pabo
Mor puratan bishwa
Agyanata dhruva nahe
Gyani amar chaowa
Tomar kachhe rakho mago
Amar sakal paowa


When I was in Heaven
I had everything,
And now on earth I have nothing,
Absolutely nothing.
When wisdom-sun will dawn,
I shall regain my own old Friend eternal.
World-ignorance is not true existence;
Therefore, I long only for light.
O Mother, may I place all my longings
At Your Lotus-Feet.
