Pray, forgive me for my offences and come to my rescue. It will add to your glory if you treat me with mercy and protect me. Infatuated with arrogance I have indulged in abusing good men, almost as a routine of life. Without true devotion to your holy feet, I have made a show to onlookers that I am a pious man doing 'Japa'. I have mingled with women and wasted my time in gossip with them but have not expatiated on stories of your glory which are beneficent to my life. I have taken refuge in thee. Have mercy on me. I can no longer bear this.
