Listen here

Lyrics and translation thanks too Jayashree Tatavarti

मनसा सततम् स्मरणीयम्

वचसा सततम् वदनीयम्

लोकहितम् मम करणीयम् ॥धृ॥


न भोग भवने रमणीयम्

न च सुख शयने शयनीयम्

अहर्निशम् जागरणीयम्

लोकहितम् मम करणीयम् ॥१॥


न जातु दुःखम् गणनीयम्

न च निज सौख्यम् मननीयम्

कार्य क्षेत्रे त्वरणीयम्

लोकहितम् मम करणीयम् ॥२॥


दुःख सागरे तरणीयम्

कष्ट पर्वते चरणीयम्

विपत्ति विपिने भ्रमणीयम्

लोकहितम् मम करणीयम् ॥३॥


गहनारण्ये घनान्धकारे

बन्धु जना ये स्थिता गह्वरे

तत्र मया सन्चरणीयम्

लोकहितम् मम करणीयम् ॥४॥

Translation:


Let us always remember,

Let us repeatedly speak out:

Our duty is to do good to humanity.


Let us not focus on material pleasures

Nor lay in the lap of luxury;

Let us be awakened always that

Our duty is to do good to humanity.


Let us not enumerate our sorrows

Nor constantly reflect on our happiness

Let us step up to take action:

Our duty is to do good to humanity.


Let us sail over oceans of misery,

Let us scale mountains of difficulty.

While roaming through the jungle of adversity,

Our duty is to do good to humanity.


Be it a dense forest of extreme darkness

Or surrounded by kith and kin

When we travel these paths,

Our duty remains - to do good to humanity.
