Jagena jagena paran jagena Ghum ghor ar bhangena Kichuto janina shudhu na Shudhu kare mana nishedh kebal Pratiti aghat dei naba bal Mukti shanti labhibo achire Keha ajo taha janena
No awakening, no awakening! My heart is fast asleep — An endless sleep. Nothing do I know, nothing do I know. Someone constantly warns me And prevents me from doing the right thing. From each stroke of his I derive new strength. I shall soon be inundated With peace and liberation-light But nobody knows anything about it.
