Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Kon ajánáy chile bahukál
Áj jánár jagate esecho
Tumi dúr ákásher chile cáṋd
Áj maner májháre bhesecho

Kata janapade tiirtha sakáshe
Ghure beŕiyechi darshana áshe
Icchá met́eni dekháo dáoni
Dúre theke shudhu hesecho

Bujhilám sár tava karuńái
Tomáke pávár ár path nái
Vidyábuddhi hár máne tái
Ekathá bujhiye diyecho

কোন্‌ অজানায় ছিলে বহুকাল
আজ জানার জগতে এসেছ
তুমি দূর আকাশের ছিলে চাঁদ
আজ মনের মাঝারে ভেসেছ

কত জনপদে তীর্থ সকাশে
ঘুরে বেড়িয়েছি দর্শন আশে
ইচ্ছা মেটেনি দেখাও দাওনি
দূরে থেকে শুধু হেসেছ

বুঝিলাম সার তব করুণাই
তোমাকে পাবার আর পথ নাই
বিদ্যাবুদ্ধি হার মানে তাই
একথা বুঝিয়ে দিয়েছ

For a long while You'd been in some unknown realm;
Today, in the known world You have arrived.
You had been the moon of a remote firmament;
Today, You have risen amid the mind.

To many human habitations around holy places,
I've been roaming about in hope of observation.
Wish was not accomplished, not a glimpse did You give;
Staying afar, You have simply smiled.

I understood the essence is Your compassion only;
For getting You another path just is not there.
So learning and intellect accept defeat;
This fact You have made me realize.
