Khelichho e Biswo loye

You are playing with this universe unmindfully
Like an immense, immeasurable child.
You keep playing a cosmic game of creation and destruction
In the heavenly solitude.

In the vast expanse of space above us
Your playful mood is manifest
Through your frequent cycles of creation and destruction
In the heavenly solitude.

The sun, the moon and the stars are mere toys
For you to play with, in your divine apathy.
They are strewn around your majestic feet.

Your supreme magnanimity is eternal
You are eternally unmoved by joy and woe
You keep smiling and playing with yourself
In the heavenly solitude.
