Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Kata kál pare peyechi tomáre
Kata janamer pratiikśáy
Juga juga dhari ásá patha cáhi
Base chinu tava apekśáy

Bhule giye chile d́ákiche tomáre
Ekjan dhyáne jape báre báre
Manete jakhan paŕila takhan
(Tumi) Nece chut́e ele rátula páy

Sádhanár bale pái ni tomáre
Ahetukii krpá kariyácho more
Tomár krpáy tomáre peyechi
(Tumi) Púrńatá dile mor ásháy

কত কাল পরে পেয়েছি তোমারে
কত জনমের প্রতীক্ষায়
যুগ যুগ ধরি আসা পথ চাহি
বসে ছিনু তব অপেক্ষায়

ভুলে গিয়ে ছিলে ডাকিছে তোমারে
একজন ধ্যানে জপে বারে বারে
মনেতে যখন পড়িল তখন
(তুমি) নেচে ছুটে এলে রাতুল পায়

সাধনার বলে পাই নি তোমারে
অহেতুকী কৃপা করিয়াছো মোরে
তোমার কৃপায় তোমারে পেয়েছি
(তুমি) পূর্ণতা দিলে মোর আশায়

After so very long, I have found You,
Having waited many lifetimes.
For eons, I have watched Your path of arrival,
Lingering in anticipation of Thee.

You'd forgot that calling out to You is there
One person chanting Your name in dhyán[nb 2] repeatedly.
When that struck Your mind, then
You came prancing in on rosy feet.

By virtue of sádhaná,[nb 3] I cannot attain You;
On me You applied unmerited mercy.
By Your grace, I've found You;
You satisfied my yearning.

  2. ^ Dhyán is commonly translated as "meditation". More accurately, it is a process whereby the mind flows in a continuous stream toward the Supreme.
  3. ^ Sádhaná is commonly used to mean "meditation" or "dhyán". However, more accurately, it is the arduous effort for spiritual perfection.
