Rater kalo alo kare is the 1572nd song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Ráter kálo álo kare
Ke elo go ke elo
Máyá kájal cokhe eṋke
Vishvabhuvan mátálo

Man mátáno báṋshiir sure
Práń bharáno giiti bhare
Sab jaŕimá cúrńa kare
Diipak ráge bájálo

Vishve táhár nái tulaná
Saptaloke tár dyotaná
Sei satya sei sádhaná
E sár kathá jánálo

রাতের কালো আলো করে'
কে এল গো কে এল
মায়া-কাজল চোখে এঁকে'
বিশ্বভুবন মাতাল

মন-মাতানো বাঁশীর সুরে
প্রাণ-ভরানো গীতি ভরে'
সব জড়িমা চূর্ণ করে'
দীপক রাগে বাজাল

বিশ্বে তাহার নাই তুলনা
সপ্তলোকে তার দ্যোতনা
সে-ই সত্য সে-ই সাধনা
এ সার কথা জানাল

Dark of night making bright,
Who came, oh Who arrived?
Magic's kohl traced upon eyes,
The whole world He drove wild!

With notes of mind-thrilling flute,
Heart-filling song having diffused...
Pulverizing all that's crude,
A tune He played in Deepak Raag.[nb 2]

Throughout the universe He has no peer,
His impact in the seven spheres...[nb 3]
Only He is Truth, and He alone is effort holy;
This precious fact He made known.

  2. ^ According to legend, Tansen, a renowned bard in the imperial court of Akbar, could ignite oil lamps merely by singing his Diipak Raga. Hence, the Diipak Raga mentioned here is clearly not just a reference to the style of classical melody but also a metaphor for spiritual thirst or enlightenment.
  3. ^ As set out in the tantric cosmology of Ananda Marga, the seven lokas or layers of manifestation from crude matter to creative consciousness.
