1. My life

Is ever given to sin,

In it there is not a particle of good;

Torment to others

Much have I caused;

I have pained all jivas.

2. For my own pleasure

I was never afraid of sinning,

Selfish and devoid of pity as I am.

Dejected by happiness of others,

Always untruthful,

The misery of others has been my delight.

3. Endless are the selfish desires

That fill my breast

To anger and insolence I am so prone,

Ever drunk with vanity,

Bewitched by worldliness,

I wear malice and pride as cherished ornaments.

4. Ruined by sleep and idleness,

Abstaining from all good works,

I am ever most zealous in evil deeds.

For the sake of worldy fame.

An adept in the practice of duplicity,

I covetous victim of greed am I.

5. Even a sinner,

Shunned by all the good,

And a constant offender, I am.

Void of all good work,

Always evilly disposed,

And poisoned with various misery.


6. Now in old age,

Bereft of all help,

Humbled and hoping naught,


At the Feet of the Lord

Tells his grief.
