Bandhu amar nikata amar is the 525th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Bandhu ámár nikat́a ámár
Ámi kii gáibo tomár gán
Tumi bhálabásá madhumákhá áshá
Tumii ámár práńera práń

Jedin haite cinechi tomáy
Bujhiyáchi mor tumii saháy
Sedini bandhu tomára parashe
Karecho nútana jiivana dán

Sedini tomár komal karete
Kamalkorake puśpita práte
T́ániyá niyecho tomára álote
Karáyecho more muktisnán

বন্ধু আমার নিকট আমার
আমি কী গাইবো তোমার গান
তুমি ভালবাসা মধুমাখা আশা
তুমিই আমার প্রাণের প্রাণ

যেদিন হইতে চিনেছি তোমায়
বুঝিয়াছি মোর তুমিই সহায়
সেদিনই বন্ধু তোমার পরশে
করেছো নূতন জীবন দান

সেদিনই তোমার কোমল করেতে
কমলকোরকে পুষ্পিত প্রাতে
টানিয়া নিয়েছো তোমার আলোতে
করায়েছো মোরে মুক্তিস্নান

My friend, my confidant,
How will I sing Your song?
You are love and honey-coated hope;
You alone are the breath of my life.

Since the day that I recognized You,
I've understood You're my sole companion.
On that same day, my friend, with Your touch,
You made the gift of new existence.

On that very day with Your gentle hand
On this budding lotus at its inception,
You pulled me into Your effulgence;
You performed on me the muktisnán.[nb 2]

  2. ^ In the Hindu tradition, muktisnán (literally, "liberation bath") is a purifying or renewing ceremonial ablution, carried out at the conclusion of an eclipse. In this song, the concept is metaphorical, suggesting a rite of passage from a dark period to brighter times.
