Vrajer kanu abar ki re is the 1251st song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Vrajer kánu ábár ki re
Phire ela vrndávane
Gopiir vyathá práńer kathá
Nútan kare paŕla mane

Jamuná áj ujáne bay
Práńocchváse se[nb 2] udvel hay
Sońár cikur siṋkhir mayúr
Kotháy gela kei bá jáne

Madhuvane átmahárá
Gopii bháver nayantárá
Kuiṋjavane priitipuiṋje
Chaŕiye gela maner końe

ব্রজের কানু আবার কি রে
ফিরে’ এল বৃন্দাবনে
গোপীর ব্যথা প্রাণের কথা
নূতন করে’ পড়ল মনে

যমুনা আজ উজানে বয়
প্রাণোচ্ছ্বাসে সে উদ্বেল হয়
সোণার চিকুর সিঁথির ময়ূর
কোথায় গেল কেই বা জানে

মধুবনে আত্মহারা
গোপী ভাবের নয়নতারা
কুঞ্জবনে প্রীতিপুঞ্জে
ছড়িয়ে গেল মনের কোণে

The Kanu[nb 3] of Braj, is He again
Come back to Vrndavan?
The milkmaids' pain, their inmost thoughts,
They did strike mind once more.

Today the Jamuna flows upstream;
With zest for life it's overflowing.
The peacock with its parted golden crest...
Does anyone know where it went?

In a pleasure-grove, ecstatic
Was the Darling of gopiis' devotion.
From that bower with love abounding,
He dispersed to crannies of the psyche.

  2. ^ The word se does not appear in either the Bangla or Roman script sources. But as it is sung in the audio rendition and it does not change the sense of the line, it is included here.
  3. ^ Kánu is a pet name of Krsna as a child. It means "beautiful" or "handsome".
