Verse 78: The ultimate hope for the greatest sinners...

papiyan api hina-jatir api duhshilo’pi dushkarmanam
simapi shvapacadhamo’pi satatam durvasanadhyo’pi ca
durdesha-prabhavo’pi tatra vihitavaso’pi duhsangato
nashto’py uddhrita eva yena kripaya tam gauram eva stumah (78)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 78: "Even the most wretched of sinners, even those who take birth in an abominable family, even the men of the basest character, even those who are in the vanguard of sinful activity, even the most cruel dog-eaters, even the most evil-minded people, even those whose hearts are constantly overwhelmed by wicked and sinful desires, even those born in or residing in sinful countries and even those whose character has been destroyed by evil association, can be rescued, purified and delivered by the causeless mercy of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu attained through the chanting of His most auspicious Holy Name and Pastimes. Let me therefore take full shelter of my most munificent Lord Gauranga and the ceaseless chanting of His causelessly merciful Holy Names!"
