Prārthanā

Though I am wicked or without wisdom, I think I am very wise. Though I am greedy and always desirous, I think I am desireless. Though I am greedy and colored with hypocrisy, I think I am deep in virtue. Though I am dull and engrossed in mundane existence (world), I think I am deep in devotion.[1—2]

Though I am resplendent by sinful fire, I think I am pure and wise. Though I am vile and fool, I think I am resplendent by virtuous fire. I am defeated by Your powers, and I am deceived by Your Māyā. Forgive me, forgive me, O Kṛṣṇa! Forgive me, the supreme Lord![3—4]

Having obtained average looks, I always mock ugly looking persons. Having obtained little treasure, I always mock virtuous paupers. Having called myself as one without desire, I am engrossed in all the desires. Having called myself as one without greed, I am deep in all the greedy activities.[5—6]

Alas, alas! O Kṛṣṇa, Who is Dhanañjaya’s charioteer! O noble One! When will You drive my unsupported chariot in this majestic ocean of metempsychosis? You cause to drive everything — to know thus, my age has ended. Now, without You, who is my support in this sorrowful world?[7—8]

O Lord, Who causes benevolence without any expectation! You know and bestow everything. O Kṛṣṇa! When You will wish, then I will indeed achieve salvation.[9]
