Re: New Life- Reply no. 2
Here are the translations for the songs used in this arrangement, and the links to the scores in srichinmoysongs.com.
The first song, Shikkha Guru Dikkha Guru, is a little bit hidden in the bass line, and played at a slower tempo. I've always enjoyed this idea, that I can make bass lines with Guru's songs played in a slower speed, and here it worked...
SHIKKHA GURU DIKKHA GURU
Shikkha guru dikkha guru Nutan jiban halo suru Shikkha guru dikkha guru Habona ar kabhu viru Paye dale agyanata Tomai dibo saphalata
O my teacher-Guru, O my initiation-Guru, A new life has dawned. O my teacher-Guru, O my initiation-Guru, I shall no longer make friends with cowardice. I shall kick off ignorance-night And offer you my success-life.
Bela Chale Jai [song #11]
PARAM PITA AGHAT KARO
Param pita aghat karo Aghat karo aghat Paran bhare jachi ami Nutan alor prabhat
O Father Supreme, strike me! Strike me hard, very hard. With all my heart I am begging You For the dawn of a new life.
Journey's Goal, Part 11a [song #34] Alo Divine Mother [song #92]
KOTHAI MARAN KOTHAI MARAN NITYA NABA DIBYA
Kothai maran kothai maran Nitya naba dibya jiban
400 BGWR Soul-Birds, Part 1 [song #121]
Where is death, where is death? Every day a new life.
400 BGWR Soul-Birds, Part 1 [song #122]
I forgot to mention one more song, the first melody that appears in the guitar...Bandhan Bandhan Tai Prane Krandan...I was not planning to use this song, but as I was preparing to record the songs with the meaning "New Life", this one knocked on my heart-door and begged to be included...
BANDHAN BANDHAN TAI PRANE KRANDAN
Bandhan bandhan Tai prane krandan Bandhan bandhan Mrityur
syandan Bandhan bandhan Habo sudha nandan
Therefore a ceaseless cry inside my heart.
I see the chariot of death right ahead of me.
Yet I shall become nectar's ecstasy-son."
My Green Adoration-Gifts, Part 2 [song #29]
