mādhava, bahuta minati kari toya
dei tulasī tila, deha samarpinu,
dayā jāni nā chāḍabi moya

gaṇaite doṣa, guṇaleśa nā pāobi,
yab tuhuñ karabi vicāra
tuhuñ jagannāth, jagate kahāosi
jag-bāhira nahi muñi chāra

kiye mānuṣa paśu pakhī ye janamiye,
athavā kīṭa patañge
karam vipāke, gatāgati punaḥ punaḥ
mati rahu tuyā parasañge

bhaṇaye vidyāpati, atiśaya kātara,
taraite iha bhava-sindhu
tuyā pada-pallava, kari avalamban,
tila eka deha dīna-bandhu

1) O Madhava, with this offering of a tulasi leaf and sesame seeds I beseech You and pledge my body in Your service. I know Your compassion is such that You will not reject me.

2) While considering this appeal, You will only be able to count my faults. You will not find even a trace of good qualities in me. You are known throughout the creation as Jagannatha (master of the universe). Therefore do I, a worthless soul living within this universe, not have the right to accept You as my master?

3) Birth after birth, as a result of my karma, I repeatedly come and go, sometimes as a human, sometimes as an animal and sometimes as a bird, worm or insect. But in whatever birth I take may my mind always remain fixed on Your narrations.

4) With great remorse, the poet Vidyapati humbly prays, “O Madhava, O friend of the fallen, please give this insignificant person shelter at the tender leaf of Your lotus feet. In this way, I may cross over this ocean of material existence.”
