Lyrics

Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Ajáná pathik alakár kathá
Shońáo bárek káche ese
Niilábhrer niiháriká kańá
Kon ajánáy jáy bhese

Jáhá dekhe tháki táhái ki t́hik
Jáhá náhi dekhi sabi ki aliik
Kont́á satyi kont́á mithye
Ki chilo atiite geche khase[nb 2]

Shástre já áche apaoruśeya
Shástre já nái táhái ki heya
Múl prashner múl uttar
Diye jáo manete base

অজানা পথিক অলকার কথা
শোণাও বারেক কাছে এসে'
নীলাভ্রের নীহারিকা কণা
কোন্‌ অজানায় যায় ভেসে'

যাহা দেখে' থাকি তাহাই কি ঠিক
যাহা নাহি দেখি সবই কি অলীক
কোনটা সত্যি কোনটা মিথ্যে
কি ছিল অতীতে গেছে খসে'

শাস্ত্রে যা' আছে অপৌরুষেয়
শাস্ত্রে যা' নাই তাহাই কি হেয়
মূল প্রশ্নের মূল উত্তর
দিয়ে যাও মনেতে বসে'

Unknown Traveler, Heaven's dictates,
Once having come near, kindly explain.
From dark-cloudy nebula a tiny grain
Floats away to which strange place?

What I keep witnessing, is only that okay;
And what I do not see, is all of it vain?
Which one is truth, which one is sham...
What was in past, it has got scrapped.

What resides in scripture, is it not man-made;
And what's not in scripture, is the same thing base?
Root of questioning and root of reply,
Please do provide, seated in the mind.

Notes

  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ In all versions earlier than the latest Bengali edition,[2] the word bhese appears instead of khase. So we also hear bhese in the audio rendition. However, khase makes more sense and is hence preferred here.
