SARANAGATI (SURRENDER) | Sri Laghu-chandrika-bhasya
Bhajana-Lalasa: Hankering for Service
hari–Lord; he–oh!; prapanche (pancha-bhautika jagate)–in the material world (composed of the five gross elements, namely, earth, water, fire, air, and space); padiya–falling; agati (asatkrta)–helpless (a wrong-doer, one engaged in illusory activities); ha-iya–becoming; na–not; dekhi–I see; upaya–way; ara–another; agatira–of the shelterless; gati–the shelter (the Lord); charane–at the feet; sarana–refuge; tomaya–in You; karinu–I did; sara–the essence. 
(1) O Lord! Having fallen into this material world and become wicked, I see no other means of deliverance. Shelter at Your feet is the only help for the helpless. I have accepted You as my be-all and end-all.

(2) I perform no pious actions, I have no knowledge, I do not engage in any devotional practices, and I do not perform any devotional service. You are merciful, and I am most fallen. I pray for Your unconditional mercy.
