Tagore Song posted and translated by Ranu

আজি প্রণমি তোমারে চলিব, নাথ, সংসারকাজে। তুমি আমার নয়নে নয়ন রেখো অন্তরমাঝে ॥ হৃদয়দেবতা রয়েছ প্রাণে মন যেন তাহা নিয়ত জানে, পাপের চিন্তা মরে যেন দহি দুঃসহ লাজে ॥ সব কলরবে সারা দিনমান শুনি অনাদি সঙ্গীতগান, সবার সঙ্গে যেন অবিরত তোমার সঙ্গ রাজে। নিমেষে নিমেষে নয়নে বচনে, সকল কর্মে, সকল মননে, সকল হৃদয়তন্ত্রে

 যেন মঙ্গল বাজে ॥
Today my Lord I salute you
 before I go for my worldly duties.
You watch me in your heart
I wish  to remember at all times 
that you are my object of deep reverence
I should burn the thought of sin.
I want to feel your presence even
when I'm in the company of others.

I know I have to give everything__

all my wealth,O Lord,   all my profit__

what my eyes have seen, ears have heard,

my skilful nursing,my visiting often.

My morning and evening in my mind’s vessel.

Will secretly unfold before you.

Right now it’s my lute,it is confined___

when you own it, it will perform your tune.

Your pleasure  delights me in my moment of sadness

make mine yours.

What I got as mine in an auspicious moment

I’ll make them yours  then they’ll be mine.

This is a song from Tagore’s collection,named ” Rabindra-Sangeet”

Oh Lord , my prayer to you is not to save me from danger __

but to strengthen my mind so I am not afraid of danger.

I do not expect you to console me when I am in pain or  suffering,

I need the courage to conquer sadness.

If I am unable to get a companion     make me able enough  to carry on alone_

If I suffer loss,    because of deceit,

give me the resilience to protect my mind.

I am not praying to save me___

I want help so that I do not give up.

DO not console me by lightening my burden,

but inspire me to carry the burden gracefully.

In days of happiness  humbly I will recognize you__

In my nights of sadness when the world deceives me

keep me from doubting you,my Lord!
