O Lord! Dear to men of wisdom. Out of greed to be recognized as your devotee, have I been wandering about uttering falsehood? Or have I associated myself with indiscrete men and indulged in nefarious activities?
Pray protect me. In weal or woe have I ever complained or given way to grief? Whether you drown me in milk or whater, whether you honor me or disgrace me, amidst my peers, I shall hold fast
to your divine feet as my sole refuge.
