Paoya na paoyay sukhe duhkhe hay is the 384th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Páoyá ná páoyáy sukhe duhkhe háy
Din cale jáy akáje
Phulera cáripáshe bhramará kii je áshe
Gunguniye áse kii láje

Sabára priyatama sabáre bhuláye
Marmamájháre tháko je lukáye
Bhitare náhi cái báhire tákái
Kasturiimrga sama je

Jáhárá thákibe ná táder áshepáshe
Ghúre mari miche kena je kii áshe
Moha bheuṋge dáo more t́ene náo
Ámáre rákho tava sakáshe

পাওয়া না-পাওয়ায় সুখে দুঃখে হায়
দিন চলে যায় অকাজে
ফূলের চারিপাশে ভ্রমরা কী যে আশে
গুনগুনিয়ে আসে কী লাজে

সবার প্রিয়তম সবারে ভুলায়ে
মর্মমাঝারে থাকো যে লুকায়ে
ভিতরে নাহি চাই বাহিরে তাকাই
কস্তুরীমৃগ সম যে

যাহারা থাকিবে না তাদের আশেপাশে
ঘুরে মরি মিছে কেন যে কী আশে
মোহ ভেঙ্গে দাও মোরে টেনে নাও
আমারে রাখো তব সকাশে

Alas, in getting or not getting pain or ease,
Days pass by with useless deeds.
All around flowers, with what hope do bees
Come and hum so bashfully?

Most beloved of all, duping everybody,
You remain hidden in the core of our being.
We look not internally but rather externally,
In the same manner as the musk deer.[nb 2]

Amid that which won't endure, here and there,
Expecting what, why do people roam uselessly?
Shatter my illusion, and draw me near;
Keep me in Your holy proximity.

  2. ^ In yogic scriptures and commentaries, there is an oft-told fable about a musk deer who searches the world over for the source of the intoxicating fragrance that is coming from the deer's own self. The moral of the story is that happiness is to be found within and not without.
