Bandhu tomay kii balibo is the 28th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2][3]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Bandhu tomáy kii balibo
Timirer ghum bháuṋgáye diyecho
Álor pathei calibo
Calibo calibo calibo

Anádare tháká kusumakaliti
Máláy gáṋthiyá rekhecho
Dhúlidhúsarita maner arghya
Kolete tuliyá niyecho

Sab vinimaye tomáke peyechi
Tomár kathái shuńibo
Shuńibo shuńibo shuńibo

বন্ধু তোমায় কী বলিবো
তিমিরের ঘুম ভাঙ্গায়ে দিয়েছো
আলোর পথেই চলিবো
চলিবো চলিবো চলিবো

অনাদরে থাকা কুসুমকলিটি
মালায় গাঁথিয়া রেখেছো
ধূলিধূসরিত মনের অর্ঘ্য
কোলেতে তুলিয়া নিয়েছো

সব বিনিময়ে তোমাকে পেয়েছি
তোমার কথাই শুণিবো
শুণিবো শুণিবো শুণিবো

Abiding Friend, what shall I say to Thee?
You broke my dark and gloomy sleep;
Now, only on light's path will I proceed...
I will proceed, I will proceed.

The budding flower lying slighted,
You have threaded on Your garland.
An offering of soiled psyche
You've accepted on Your lap.

In return for all, You I've received.
Now, Your words only will I heed;
I will pay heed, I will pay heed.


This is how Sarkar himself described the meaning of the song—[4]

Oh Lord, what shall I say to You? You have broken my dark slumber, and now I shall move on the path of light. My flower, which was long neglected, You have threaded into Your garland. Those offerings of my mind were soiled with the dust of pettiness. You have graciously taken them on Your lap. I have given away my all, and then only I have received You. Henceforward, I shall move along Your path. Only Your words I will hear. Only Your dictates I will follow. This is the proper path for me.
