Tumi nikate thekeo dure acho is the 864th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tumi nikat́e thekeo dúre ácho
Nikat́e thekeo dúre (tumi)
Tiirthe tirthe pathe janapade
Vrithái marechi ghúre (ámi)

Shauṋkha bájáye árati karechi
D́hakkánináde dhvani tuliyáchi
Sab kichu kariyáo dekhiyáchi
Áso ni go hrdipure (tumi)

Agni jvaláye hom kariyáchi
Paiṋcapradiipe shikhá dhariyáchi
Kośákuśi d́hele snán karáyechi
Stuti karechi áṋkhiniire
Áro cale gecho sare (tumi)

তুমি নিকটে থেকেও দূরে আছো
নিকটে থেকেও দূরে (তুমি)
তীর্থে তীর্থে পথে জনপদে আমি
বৃথাই মরেছি ঘুরে (আমি)

শঙ্খ বাজায়ে আরতি করেছি
ঢক্কানিনাদে ধ্বনি তুলিয়াছি
সব কিছু করিয়াও দেখিয়াছি
আসো নি গো হৃদিপুরে (তুমি)

অগ্নি জ্বালায়ে হোম করিয়াছি
পঞ্চপ্রদীপে শিখা ধরিয়াছি
কোষাকুষি ঢেলে স্নান করায়েছি
স্তুতি করেছি আঁখিনীরে
আরও চলে গেছো সবে (তুমি)

Though I approach, You stay remote,
Keeping afar when I come close.
To many holy sites, at cities and wayside,
My onerous rambling, it has been futile.

Blowing a conch shell I've made arati;[nb 2]
Pounding a kettledrum, I've invoked Thee...
Everything I do, and yet I've seen
In my heartsphere You don't appear.

Lighting fire, the homa I have done;
Lamps with five wicks I've held forth;[nb 3]
Pouring with a special spoon;[nb 4] Your idol I have bathed;
And tearfully I've also prayed...
But You've just gone further away.
