‘Nityam Swodara Poshanaya Sakalaanuddishya vitthaasaya /
vyartham paryatanam karomi bhavatassevaam na jane Vibho /
majjanmanthara punyapaakaphalathastvam Sarva! Sarvaantharas-
tishthasyeva hi thena vaa Pasupathey! tey rakshaneeyosmyaham ’
<(Sivanandalahari Stanza 57 by Adi Shankara)
I have contacted many and travelled a lot without aim just for filling my stomach and desirous of becoming prosperous. Little did I realise the significance of service to you, Oh Lord of all beings and all-pervasive! You do wipe away the sins of your devotees. May be, some good was done in my past birth that I feel confident as you are within all the beings and thus consider me too to be saved!
