Verse 53: All seeds of devotion fail to sprout except...

ha hanta citta-bhuvi me paramosharayam
sad-bhakti-kalpa-latikankurita katham syat
hridy ekam eva param ashvasaniyamasti
chaitanya-nama kalayan na kadapi shocyah (53)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 53: "Alas! Alas! I am doomed. Since my heart is like a supremely unfertile and barren desert due to my heinous offenses, the seed of the desire-creeper of pure unalloyed devotional service fails to sprout in my heart in spite of repeated sowing. In this situation, there is one and only one supreme consolation and hope for me. It is the calling out the most auspicious Holy Name of Gauranga, which is the most principle name of God (mukhyatamam) in all the Vedic scriptures. I am most certain that as soon as I chant the merciful Holy Name of Gauranga with feeling, their will be no more lamentation in my heart."
