The Poem – Nar Ho Na Nirash by Maithili Sharan Gupt

नर हो, न निराश करो मन को

कुछ काम करो, कुछ काम करो
जग में रह कर कुछ नाम करो
यह जन्म हुआ किस अर्थ अहो
समझो जिसमें यह व्यर्थ न हो
कुछ तो उपयुक्त करो तन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को


सँभलो कि सुयोग न जाए चला
कब व्यर्थ हुआ सदुपाय भला
समझो जग को न निरा सपना
पथ आप प्रशस्त करो अपना
अखिलेश्वर है अवलंबन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को


जब प्राप्त तुम्हें सब तत्त्व यहाँ
फिर जा सकता वह सत्त्व कहाँ
तुम स्वत्त्व सुधा रस पान करो
उठके अमरत्व विधान करो
दवरूप रहो भव कानन को
नर हो न निराश करो मन को


निज गौरव का नित ज्ञान रहे
हम भी कुछ हैं यह ध्यान रहे
मरणोत्तैर गुंजित गान रहे
सब जाए अभी पर मान रहे
कुछ हो न तजो निज साधन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को


प्रभु ने तुमको दान किए
सब वांछित वस्तु विधान किए
तुम प्राप्तस करो उनको न अहो
फिर है यह किसका दोष कहो
समझो न अलभ्य किसी धन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को


किस गौरव के तुम योग्य नहीं
कब कौन तुम्हें सुख भोग्य नहीं
जान हो तुम भी जगदीश्वर के
सब है जिसके अपने घर के
फिर दुर्लभ क्या उसके जन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को


करके विधि वाद न खेद करो
निज लक्ष्य निरंतर भेद करो
बनता बस उद्‌यम ही विधि है
मिलती जिससे सुख की निधि है
समझो धिक् निष्क्रिय जीवन को
नर हो, न निराश करो मन को
कुछ काम करो, कुछ काम करो

Nar Ho Na Nirash Karo Man Ko by Maithili Sharan Gupt

The Poem – Nar Ho Na Nirash by Maithili Sharan Gupt (English)

Nar ho, na niraash karo man ko

Kuchh kaam karo, kuchh kaam karo
jag mein rah kar kuchh naam karo
yah janm hua kis arth aho
samajho jisamen yah vyarth na ho
kuchh to upayukt karo tan ko
nar ho, na niraash karo man ko


sanbhalo ki suyog na jae chala
kab vyarth hua sadupaay bhala
samajho jag ko na nira sapana
path aap prashast karo apana
akhileshvar hai avalamban ko
nar ho, na niraash karo man ko


jab praapt tumhen sab tattv yahaan
phir ja sakata vah sattv kahaan
tum svattv sudha ras paan karo
uthake amaratv vidhaan karo
davaroop raho bhav kaanan ko
nar ho na niraash karo man ko


nij gaurav ka nit gyaan rahe
ham bhee kuchh hain yah dhyaan rahe
maranottair gunjit gaan rahe
sab jae abhee par maan rahe
kuchh ho na tajo nij saadhan ko
nar ho, na niraash karo man ko


prabhu ne tumako daan kie
sab vaanchhit vastu vidhaan kie
tum praaptas karo unako na aho
phir hai yah kisaka dosh kaho
samajho na alabhy kisee dhan ko
nar ho, na niraash karo man ko


kis gaurav ke tum yogya nahin
kab kaun tumhen sukh bhogy nahin
jaan ho tum bhee jagadeeshvar ke
sab hai jisake apane ghar ke
phir durlabh kya usake jan ko
nar ho, na niraash karo man ko


karake vidhi vaad na khed karo
nij lakshy nirantar bhed karo
banata bas ud‌yam hee vidhi hai
milatee jisase sukh kee nidhi hai
samajho dhik nishkriy jeevan ko


nar ho, na niraash karo man ko
kuchh kaam karo, kuchh kaam karo
