Pather shes kothay is the 2230th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Pather sheś kotháy
Tumi balo more
Ádio dekhi ná anta dekhi ná
Madhya pái kii kare

Patha raciyácho prerańá diyácho
Lakśya bujhiváre buddhi diyácho
Sabi diyácho bákii ná rekhecho
Krpá karo játe bujhi tomáre

Anádi kál dhare caliyá esecho
Jati virati bhuliyá giyácho
He mor iśt́a mor abhiiśt́a
Tomár jantra haye sájái e dharáre

পথের শেষ কোথায়
তুমি বলো মোরে
আদিও দেখি না অন্ত দেখি না
মধ্য পাই কী করে

পথ রচিয়াছ প্রেরণা দিয়াছ
লক্ষ্য বুঝিবারে বুদ্ধি দিয়াছ
সবই দিয়াছ বাকী না রেখেছ
কৃপা করো যাতে বুঝি তোমারে

অনাদি কাল ধরে’ চলিয়া এসেছ
যতি-বিরতি ভুলিয়া গিয়াছ
হে মোর ইষ্ট মোর অভীষ্ট
তোমার যন্ত্র হয়ে সাজাই এ ধরারে

O lord, where is the end of the path,
you tell me.
i do not see the beginning or end,
what for we get the middle?
you have created the path,
provided inspiration,
given intellect to understand the desideratum.
you have given all, leaving nothing
and even shower grace for understanding you.
from time immemorial, you come down,
forgetting pause and abstinence.
o my supreme goal, my ultimate cherished desire,
by becoming your instrument,
i shall decorate and beautify the world.
