Kon arup lokete chile is the 1944th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Kon arúp lokete chile
Rúpaloke niice[nb 2] neve ele
Patre puśpe mukule shyámale
Madhurimá dile d́hele

Tomár rúper ei je álok
Dharite páre ná bhúlok dyulok
Ucchaliyá hiyá upaciyá
E kii anubhúti ánile

Je jeneche tava námer mahimá
Se bujheche tava priitir garimá
Asti bháti ánandamer
Surabhi táháke dile

কোন্‌ অরূপ লোকেতে ছিলে
রূপলোকে নীচে নেবে’ এলে
পত্রে পুষ্পে মুকুলে শ্যামলে
মধুরিমা দিলে ঢেলে’

তোমার রূপের এই যে আলোক
ধরিতে পারে না ভূলোক দ্যুলোক
উছলিয়া হিয়া উপচিয়া
এ কী অনুভূতি আনিলে

যে জেনেছে তব নামের মহিমা
সে বুঝেছে তব প্রীতির গরিমা
সুরভি তাহাকে দিলে

In which formless realm had You been
Ere stooped You down to form-sphere?
With blooms and leaves, buds and greenery,
Sweetness You did lavish.

This, the splendor of Your shapes,
Not earth nor heaven can contain.
The swelling heart overflowing,
Oh what feelings You delivered!

Those who've known Your name's greatness,
They have understood the glory of Your love.
As for existence, development, and bliss,[nb 3]
To them their fragrance You furnished.

  3. ^ According to Sarkar, the individual and society both require three factors for healthy life. Asti (existence) comprises the physical and psycho-physical requisites of life (food, clothing, housing, medical care, and education). Bháti (development) comprises the six elements needed for psychic and psycho-spiritual advancement. Ánanda (bliss) is the ultimate goal of life.[3]
