Prayer for the new year

(128)  Vatsar nava vatsar tumi

Oh Year, you are the new year;
On every side bring welfare please...
In the beckoning of a new morning,
With the new dawn's new light-beams.

Creepers and trees, let them be replete with green;
Wild creatures, safe and secure let them be;
And the birds, with their throats full of nectar,
In every direction, let them take wing.

Let differences among humans disappear;
Let misuse of intellect be kept from happening;
And the prowess of corrupt persons in power,
Let that be suppressed everywhere.
