Bhajo re ishtho nam, mon amar,
Bhajo re ishtho nam,
Mon amar bhajo re ishtho nam
Srishthi sthiti tatei nihito
Tahatei shesh porinam,
Mon amar bhajo re ishtho nam.

Dilen je purush e amrito nam
Tini i janen er nabo dham
Dhorar dhulay ei obhiram
Shune jao obiram. Mon amar…

Je amrito loke achhen she srashtha
Anrito jogote bhangen she spardha
Shakol dharaker ekak she dhortta
She amar mohon shutham. Mon amar…

O my mind, Sing the name of Ishta (Ishta Mantra)
Creation, present form and final consequence,
All reside covertly within Him.

Only the supreme One, who bestowed on us this immortal name,
Knows its true resting place.
On this dusty earth, His name is truly beautiful
Constantly listen to His name.

He is the Creator, who remains in the world of immortality
(From there) He breaks all attachments of the transient world
He is the One (and only) controller of all vibrations
He is my ultimate and charming true home.

With your touch and joy, the earth is smiling.
In Your rhythms and bliss
The earth proclaims: “I love You, I love You alone”.

By Your ever flowing grace and blessings,
Darkness of the fog destroyed in the blink of an eye.
The epitome of evil that used to extinguish Your light
Oh! Where has that disappeared?

The feelings that were hidden (as if) behind the flowers of imagination
Have now emerged from the depth of the earth.
Lighting the lamps on the earth, merging in all universes,
All will play flutes in One note.

You visited me on the painful nights, but did not come to share my joys.
You could not be known by the trickery of intellect but by the tears of heart alone.

The spring brought the beauty of flowers; I prepared Items for your worship,
You could not be realized with any offerings,
but only with sincere surrender of the anguished heart.

In the frivolous playfulness and glittering, I did not seek You.
Yet I received Your grace, on the darkest night of the new moon.

Oh beloved, You came to my mind, with blessed loving spirit.
Surging waves of the Jomuna (river) of my mind, dancing away,
You guide them upstream.

You are always in the Brindaban of devotees mind.
You always listen to the stories of all.
All sentiments and actions are within Your mind.
You fill all hearts.

(While) In Your liila, You are beyond all liila,
You surround (witness) all individually and collectively.
You are eternally present in the deepest existence of all
You are beyond time, in movement of time, at all times.

Translation :


You are as severe as a thunder bolt,
And yet, as tender as a flower bud.
O Lord Shiva, holder of the pinaka (a small, hand held drum), I salute You.

You are like a silver mountain,
With a (crescent) moon on Your head.
I know that You have all the attributes.

You are controller of both the expressed
And the unexpressed worlds.
You are the shelter of all distressed people.

You are beginningless and beyond the scope of time,
And yet, You remain everpresent in all finite objects.
I salute You, O ever tranquil one.
O controlling Lord of animalistic tendencies!

You are the owner of all gems and jewels,
And yet, You have relinquished everything.
You are as effulgent as a bright emerald.

O Lord, you have come today to care for suffering people,
to destroy the darkness from all minds, to love all living beings.

The earth waited eagerly for Your arrival.
Signs of injury all over her body.
Traces of happiness all but lost,
Carrying on and on the burden of agony.

On the bosom of the earth, kindle more light.
Into the distressed heart, pour even more nectar.
Calling everyone in resolute voice,
to move forward with heads held high.

I call you, I desire you alone, I know none else.
My mind intoxicated in Your love, only understands You.

I have been swept in the floods of Your thoughts, dancing in Your desire.
You are the infinite ocean I am Your droplet, Your love binds me eternally.

In the showering of the fierce meteors and violent hailstorm
In the cool comforting winds of a full moon light
Your song and nectar of sweet voice, floats my heart away towards smiling horizon.

With the waves of music and charming colors,
How have you colored this universe?
(Oh Parampurusha) Please tell me.
With sweet formation and sweet non-compliance,
Doing liila with all. Please tell me, please tell me.

Intoxicating the creation, with moonlit night
And crimson hue in the golden morning
Offering the blossoms of champak flowers
Making all Your own, by gentle touch.
Please tell me, please tell me.

Making universe dance in your rhythms and patterns
Painting it with the rainbow colors
Hiding behind all creation with unfathomable mystery
Please tell me, please tell me.

Oh Parampurusha, I have prepared the garland for you,
With all the sweetness of my heart.
I have been swept away
In your ideation, eyes full with tears

I don’t have the force of sadhana (on my side)
Nor do I possess good virtues (samskaras)
So, I (can) only rely on, beg for your grace
Will you push me away helplessly?

I possess neither mundane nor spiritual knowledge
My love for you is not so devotional (also)
My eyes only possess the tears of agony.
What tricks are you trapping me with?
