I devoutly contemplate the lord Caitanya-candra, whose very nature is of the condensed essence of the ocean of compassion, and who, with the stout rope of his unreserved grace, raised me from the dried-up well of family life, so full of afflictions, and drew me to the proximity of his feet which deride the beauty of a pair of lotuses; and who kindly entrusted me into the care of his own Sri Damodara.
