kamadinam kati na katidha palita durnidesas
tesam jata mayi na karuna na trapa nopasantih
utsrjyaitan atha yadu-pate sampratam labdha-buddhis
tvam ayatah saranam abhayam mam niyunksvatma-dasye
In how many ways have I sought to obey
The seductive demands of my wicked desires?
They've shown me no mercy, yet on I've gone, shamelessly
Trying to quench lust's unquenchable fires.
But now I'm rejecting those hellish desires, for my
Higher intelligence now has awoken;
O Krsna, O shelter of fearlessness, please let me
Serve You with faith that will never be broken.
(A poetic translation of Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 22.16)
