Purify my life

আগুনের পরশমণি
Aguner poroshmoni (audio)

Purify my life
with the purging touch of fire
Purify my life
With your blessings of searing pain
Make it pure like the gold
That passes the test of fire

Take unto you my mortal form
Make it a lamp of your divine abode
Let the flame of my song glow through night and day

The slightest of your touch on the dark frame of night
Let it spark a new star one after another
To illuminate the darkness

Let my vision be cleansed from all darkness
Whither alights my gaze may it see the light
Let my pain be ablaze and rise above despair


*Another version by Anandamayee Majumdar:
(audio rendition of the English version)

Your flaming touch, let it blaze my heart
Purify this life of mine
Clarify this life of mine
Simplify this life of mine
Glorify this life of mine; atoning, as I burn.

Lift my soul, lift my heart, a blazing torch of light
Glowing in the sky with stars that shimmer in the night
Melody, let it sear, forever, as I burn

Impel my layers of dark, let your hands alight
Kindling stars awake, evoking them with light.

May darkness disappear from all my soul and sight
Deluding senses with sanctifying light
Agony, let it sear, forever, as I burn.

( *an attempt has been made to restore the  original rhythm to be able to sing this song in English as well)

  2. "Aguner Poroshmoni" song is very heart touching specially for Rabindranath Tagore, cause he is one the most greatest writter of the world. I could self realize again when I listen the song and feel the lyrics.
