Raj pathe pathe kato ghurilam Harainu tata jato labhilam He mor nayan bikashini Milila shudha mithilana khudha Ogo santap nashini Aji phirilam dhulai malin Hasi nai mukhe hayechhi srihin Basibe ki ei jiban anke Ogo pankajabasini
Far have I walked along the highway. The more I have lost the outer world, The more I have gained the inner world. O Queen of my life-illumining vision, I have discovered nectar-delight, Yet my hunger remains the same. O my heart’s consolation-queen,O remover of my life’s excruciating pangs,Today I am returning home in a beggar’s garbWith an unclean body and an unlit mind. The smiling world has left me. Utterly empty of beauty my life has now grown. O Goddess Lakshmi, Queen and Mother of my heart, Do grant me one solitary boon: Place Yourself once and for all Inside the crying pages of my life’s sorrowful and closing chapter.
