CC Madhya 5.47
- ‘mora dharma rakṣā pāya, nā mare nija-jana
- dui rakṣā kara, gopāla, lainu śaraṇa’
mora—my; dharma—religious principles; rakṣā pāya—spared; nā—not; mare—die; nija-jana—own kinsmen; dui—two; rakṣā kara—You kindly protect; gopāla—my Lord Gopāla; lainu—I have taken; śaraṇa—shelter under Your lotus feet.
The elderly brāhmaṇa prayed, “My dear Lord Gopāla, I have taken shelter of Your lotus feet, and therefore I request You to please protect my religious principles from disturbance and at the same time save my kinsmen from dying.”
