Amara Jivana Sada Pape Rata

Saranagati, Song 5

 

amara jivana sada pape rata
nahika punyera lesa
parere udvega diyachhi ye kata
diyachhi jivere klesa [1]

My life is always engrossed in sin. There is not a trace of piety within it. I have caused others so much anxiety and trouble.

nija sukha lagi' pape nahi dari
daya-hina svartha-para
para-sukhe duhkhi sada mithya-bhasi
para-duhkha sukha-kara [2]

I am never afraid to engage in sinful activities for the sake of my own happiness. I am merciless and selfish. I am a perpetual liar. I am saddened by the happiness of others and pleased by the sadness of others.

asesa kamana hrdi majhe mora
krodhi, dambha-parayana
mada-matta sada visaye mohita
himsa-garva vibhusana [3]

There are unlimited sinful desires within the core of my heart. I am angry and arrogant, always maddened with vanity, infatuated with mundanity, and malice and pride are my ornaments.

nidralasya hata sukarye virata
akarye udyogi ami
pratistha lagiya sathya-acharana
lobha-hata sada kami [4]

I am subdued by laziness and sleep, averse to performing good deeds, and eager to perform sinful deeds. I engage in deceitful behaviour in pursuit of prestige. I am ruined by greed and constantly covetous.

e hena durjana sajjana-varjita
aparadhi nirantara
subha-karya-sunya sadanartha-manah
nanaduhkhe jara jara [5]

Such a sinner as I is shunned by devotees, and is a constant offender. I am devoid of virtuous motives, always intent upon evil, and racked by various miseries.

vardhakye ekhana upaya-vihina
ta'te dina akinchana
bhakati-vinoda prabhura charane
kare duhkha nivedana [6]

Now aged, I am devoid of any means of deliverance and thus destitute and distressed. Bhakti Vinod submits this remorseful confession at the Lord's feet.
