Campaka vane dakhina pavane is the 40th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2][3]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Campaka vane dakhiná pavane
Jhauṋkrta gáne áji ele tumi
Jhauṋkrta gáne nije ele

Háránor vyathá ná páoyár kathá
Sakal diinatá bhuláile (tumi)

Smrtivijaŕita calára pathete
Áshá niráshár dodul doláte
Mamatár veńu bájáte bájáte
Sab madhurimá bhare chile (tumi)

Áloker oi jharańádháráte
Shata rúpe nije dhará dile (tumi)

চম্পক বনে দখিনা পবনে
ঝঙ্কৃত গানে আজি এলে তুমি
ঝঙ্কৃত গানে নিজে এলে

হারানোর ব্যথা না-পাওয়ার কথা
সকল দীনতা ভুলাইলে (তুমি)

স্মৃতিবিজড়িত চলার পথেতে
আশা-নিরাশার দোদুল দোলাতে
মমতার বেণু বাজাতে বাজাতে
সব মধুরিমা ভরে' ছিলে (তুমি)

আলোকের ওই ঝরণাধারাতে
শত রূপে নিজে ধরা দিলে (তুমি)

In the magnolia grove, on southern breeze,
With burst of song, today You appeared;
With burst of song, in person You appeared.

Vanquished are distress and disappointment;
You made me forget all deprivation.

On my journey intertwined with memories,
Twixt hope and desperation I'd been wavering.
Playing the flute of love constantly,
With all sweetness You've been filling me.

With that brilliant light's streaming cascade,
You granted Your embrace in a hundred ways.


This is how Sarkar himself described the meaning of the song—[4]

You have come into this world with the resonance of music in endless ways. You have manifested Yourself in innumerable styles and forms with rhythmic sweetness and beauty. And all pangs of loss, all disappointments and weaknesses, have been forgotten. According to Your wish, because of Your unfathomable kindness, we have been able to know You, hear You, and see You in these endless ways. If You had not wanted it, how could we have attained You? What else can I call it except Your grace?
