Phalguner agun laga is the 259th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Phálguner águn lágá
Palasha vane ke eseche
Dekhe jena hay go mane
Cini cini cená áche

Ná jániyá besechi bhálo
Tári rauṋe jvelechi álo
Tári bháve vibhor hiyá
Nece cale jáy tári káche

Dośa guń náhi bujhi
Parashmańi peye gechi
(Tái) Maneri maiṋjuśá mor
Madhumáse mete ut́heche

ফাল্গুনের আগুন-লাগা
পলাশ বনে কে এসেছে
দেখে যেন হয় গো মনে
চিনি চিনি চেনা আছে

না জানিয়া বেসেছি ভালো
তারই রঙে জ্বেলেছি আলো
তারই ভাবে বিভোর হিয়া
নেচে চলে যায় তারই কাছে

দোষ-গুণ নাহি বুঝি
পরশমণি পেয়ে গেছি
(তাই) মনেরই মঞ্জুষা মোর
মধুমাসে মেতে উঠেছে

Igniting a Springfire[nb 2]
Who has come into the palash grove?
Looking on, it seems that He
Is familiar.

Unconsciously, I have been in love—
In His color, a flame I ignited;
In His ideation, mind delighted,
Dancing ever closer to Him.

Realizing not virtue and vice,
I have attained the philosopher's stone.
So, my mental jewelbox[nb 3]
Revels upon this month of Spring.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ Phalgun is the month that typically occurs from mid-February to mid-March. The first day of Phalgun marks the beginning of Spring. This song was given on the first day of Phalgun in 1983. The fire referred to here seems to have broader symbolic meaning than the crimson color of the flowers of the palash tree, mentioned in the next line.
  3. ^ Jewel box of mind is a poetic way of describing the intellectual and intuitive self. In yogic terms, this would be the pure aham (I do) and mahat (I am) aspects of individual self that transcend mind.
