Vinayāvalī 103

O Rāma, the heroic descendant of Raghu, the master of senses, this is my humble request. Remove all (my) hope, faith and belief in others,1 which is the ignorance of this Jīva. I do not want anything — the ultimate state (of Mukti), discerning intellect, riches, Ṛddhi (abundance), the eight Siddhi,2 or extensive greatness. (All I want is) May my unconditional love in the feet of Rāma grow more and more, day by day.[1—2]

Wherever (in whichever body, yoni, or state) my crooked deeds (Karma) lead me by force, do not give up your compassion even for a second, just like a turtle never forgets its eggs (laid far away on ocean shore). Tulasidāsa says till wherever this material body has love, faith and relationships, may all that (love, faith and relationship) come together at one place with (my) all-powerful Lord.[3—4]

Footnotes:

1 Others stands for other Sādhana or Devatā

2 The eight Siddhis described in Patañjali𔃏s Yogasūtra are aṇimā, laghimā, prāpti, prākāmya, mahimā, īśitva, vaśitva and kāmāvasāyitā.
