Ar Katokal Kandbo Mago

Ar katokal kandbo mago ar katokal kandbo
Andhar ghare ekla base tomai bhalobasbo
Tumi jano gopan katha
Amar hiyar byakulata
Nitya kena kalo shaman
Prane amar kare dahan
Ar karona deri mago ar karona deri
Tumi amar bishwa mata Jishur jeman Meri

Translation

How long more shall I cry, Mother?
How long shall I cry
In a dark room alone, loving You?
You know my secret thought.
You know my heart’s eagerness.
Why does dark death torture me every day?
How long will You delay, Mother?
How long will You delay?
As Jesus had Mary,
So are You my World-Mother.

I came into the world all alone,
But now I have become many.
Do You know why?
Precisely because I have seen You.
You are my eternal Friend.
You are the Light in my death.
I am Your liberation-child.
Like Jesus in the lap of Mary,
I always stay in Your Lap.

Janamila Debashishu Jishu Dharatale

Janamila debashishu Jishu dharatale
Debaloke jaya giti gahe dale dale
Meri mata ankhi bhase kritagyata jale
Andhiyar guha bhabe lakka mani jwale
Dharma niti aripriti
Jishu mahaprem bhati
Dharanite prasphutibe alo phule phale

Translation

Christ takes human incarnation.
Countless souls sing his victory-song.
Mother Mary’s eyes are flooded with gratitude-pride.
This world of darkness-cave
Enjoys the aspiration of diamond-light.
We are all friends. We see no foe,
For Jesus is a flame of the Light Supreme.
The Lord Supreme is smiling
Inside the flower and fruit-garden
Of humanity.

Jesus, Jesus, O Jesus!
You are Heaven’s dearest Child.
For the upliftment and enlightenment
Of the whole world,
You sleeplessly remain awake.

Translation

Jesus, Jesus!
Sleeplessly and breathlessly
I repeat the Name of Lord Jesus.
Deep I dive
In His Consciousness Universal.
He is the Father of the world.
For all He is.
The second version of translation:
We meditate on the Christ.
We repeat His Name countless times.
Without the Christ Consciousness,
Our life is totally lost.
Christ is for all.
He is our Divinity’s Son
And humanity's Father.

Jishur Swapna Sarga Rajya

Jishur swapna sarga rajya
Bastabe rup dite
Narayan aj murta holen
Dhulimoy dharanite
Bidhatar joy dharanir joy
Bishwa bashir joy
Suchita hateche sata jugar
Ajike abhyudoy

Translation

To manifest the reality-form of the
Kingdom of Heaven of Jesus,
Today the Lord Supreme
Has descended on earth,
The earth of sand and dust and ignorance.
Lord’s Victory, world’s victory
And the victory of humanity
Are giving birth to a new era
Of new illumination and new perfection.

Khama Karo Pita Agyan Jane

Khama karo pita agyan jane
Ei nibedan tomar charane
Kariche je era ghor kukarma
Janibena tara tahar marma

Translation

Father, forgive these ignorant souls.
This is my most soulful prayer
At Your Feet.
Alas, they will never know
Where their unlit and dark action
Will lead them.
They will never know what awaits them
For their most deplorable fate.

Kross Bedanai Pran Jai

Kross bedanai pran jai
Tumi o ki pita tyajile amai
Dekha deha bhase rudhir dharai
Pran jai jai jal pipasai
Kantar mukut parinu mathai

Translation

Father, the excruciating pain from
The cross-torture
Is about to end my life at this moment.
How is it possible, Father,
That You, too, have renounced me?
Look, my forehead is swimming
In the stream of blood,
My heart is dying of immediate thirst
And the thorn-crown that I am wearing
Is far beyond my capacity to bear.

Mukher Katha Jaina Prabhur Kane

Mukher katha jaina prabhur kane
Praner kanna tante kebal jane
Kanda kanda ore amar man
Jishur matan karogo krandan
Vishwa pitar lagi
Sarba tyaji haye anuragi

Translation

The words that flow from my mouth
Fail to reach the ears of my Lord Supreme.
My heart-cry draws my Beloved Supreme to me
Like a magnet.
O my mind, cry and cry,
The way Jesus cried for his eternal
Heavenly Father.
Renounce all that you have
And become all that you are:
God-Love.

Ogo Debashishu

Ogo debashishu meri kole jishu
Kiba aparup murati mohan
Nache nache nache paramanande
Medini gagan taraka tapan
Geye taba agamani
Swarge martye alo chhaya prane
Shuni taba jaya dhwani

Translation

O God-child, O Mary’s son Jesus,
You are dancing
So soulfully and beautifully
In ecstasy supreme.
Earth, sky, the stars and the sun
Sing your advent’s victory-song.
In Heaven and on earth,
In darkness-life and illumination-life,
I hear your victory-bell.

Ogo Debashishu Meri Kole Jishu Kiba

Ogo debashishu Meri kole Jishu
Kiba aparup murati mohan
Paramanande nartane rato
Akash abani taraka tapan

Prabhu Jishu Chira Mahiyan

Prabhu Jishu chira mahiyan
Krushe kare pran dan
Dite jibe paritran
Jani Jishur sandhan
Nahi pabe dharanir akritagya pran
Ghor jiban pashan

Translation

Lord Supreme,
Your son Christ has become eternally great
By offering His life to the Cross.
He has become great
By becoming humanity’s salvation-light.
I know that ungrateful humanity
Will never be able to realise the real Christ,
For what they have is a dark, stone-hearted life.

Sabai Amai Pagol Dake

Sabai amai pagol dake
Ami ki ma pagol tabe
Pagol ke noi tomar kache
Balo mago nikhil bhabe
Boka ami pagol ami
Ami tomar koler shishu
Bishwajayi habo ami
Param gyani Buddha Jishu

Translation

Everybody calls me mad.
Am I really mad then?
Tell me, Mother, is there anybody
Who is not mad
In Your eyes, in Your vast world?
I am ready to be known as
A foolish and mad fellow
As long as You will place me on Your Lap
And there I shall become another Christ
And another Buddha of
Compassion-Illumination.

Teman kare kand dekhire man
Jeman kare pita pita bale
Jishur karechen rodan

He Promised to Return

He promised to return
And He will:
Not with compassion
Like last time,
But
With a sword
For world-redemption.

O Saviour Dear

O Saviour dear,
You are so near.
O Lover kind,
Bind my heart, bind.
O Father pure,
I am all yours, sure.

I Like Joseph's Son

I like Joseph’s son
Because
He is humility’s flood.
I love Mary’s son
Because
He is Divinity’s sky.
I adore the Father’s son
Because
He is Immortality’s Love.

Father Joseph's Little Son

In his Humility
I saw Father Joseph’s little son.
In his Compassion
I saw Mother Mary’s big son.
In his Perfection
I saw his Heaven-Father’s Smile.
