Ajana atithi janite narinu is the 291st song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Ajáná atithi jánite nárinu
(Tumi) Kena ele ár kena gele
Gandhamadir svapner ghore
Mamatámadhur liilá chale

Mohana hásye udvel kari
Madhura lásye sárá práń bhari
Ucát́ana hiyá tomáre páiyá
(Se je) Kon ajánáy bhese cale

Tomár liilár sheś náhi jáni
Liilámay tumi táháo to máni
Liilár ságare baháiyá dáo
Mor tanu man prati pale

অজানা অতিথি জানিতে নারিনু
(তুমি) কেন এলে আর কেন গেলে
গন্ধমদির স্বপ্নের ঘোরে
মমতামধুর লীলা ছলে

মোহন হাস্যে উদ্বেল করি
মধুর লাস্যে সারা প্রাণ ভরি
উচাটন হিয়া তোমারে পাইয়া
(সে যে) কোন্ অজানায় ভেসে চলে

তোমার লীলার শেষ নাহি জানি
লীলাময় তুমি তাহাও তো মানি
লীলার সাগরে বহাইয়া দাও
মোর তনু মন প্রতি পলে

Unknown Visitor,[nb 2] I could not understand
Why You came or why You went...
Enveloping my dreams with heady scent,
Beguiling with Your sweet and fond dalliance.

On Your alluring smile, I brim with emotion;
With Your sweet loveplay, my whole life I fill.
Eager is my heart to attain Thee,
The One Who floats in and out mysteriously.

I realize there’s no end to Your amorous games;
You have many enticing arts— that too I know.
On an ocean of liila You set adrift
My body and mind each and every minute.
