Tumi kache theke kata dur is the 2377th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tumi káche theke kata dúr
Jáni dekho more marma májháre
Tabe kena karo átur

Tomáre khuṋjite kata deshe gechi
Kata giri arańya ghurechi
Kata ná tiirthe snán kariyáchi
Dekhi ni antahpur

Mor sáthe tomár ei liilá
Anádikáler priiti bhará khelá
Kabhu káche áso kabhu dúre jáo
Bájiye smita núpur

তুমি কাছে থেকে কত দূর
জানি দেখ মোরে মর্ম মাঝারে
তবে কেন কর আতুর

তোমারে খুঁজিতে কত দেশে গেছি
কত গিরি-অরণ্য ঘুরেছি
কত না তীর্থে স্নান করিয়াছি
দেখি নি অন্তঃপুর

মোর সাথে তোমার এই লীলা
অনাদিকালের প্রীতি-ভরা খেলা
কভু কাছে আস কভু দূরে যাও
বাজিয়ে স্মিত নূপুর

From nearby how distant You dwell...
I know You see me inside soul,
So why then do You make distressed.

To find You I have gone to many lands;
I've wandered many jungles and mountains.
At many a sacred site, I've taken bath;
But I saw not the harem.[nb 2]

With me, this Your divine sport,
It is an age-old game filled with love,
Sometimes You come close, sometimes You go far,
Ringing smiling ankle-bells.

  2. ^ Strictly speaking, antahpur refers to the inner and typically secluded portion of a Muslim household reserved for its women, the zenana or harem. In this song the figurative implication is the inner realm, inside the mind.
