When I mature into my youth, the five serpents called sense objects
bite me in my vital organs. I lose all discrimination (viveka) and
become addicted to enjoying the (fleeting) pleasures of wealth, wife,
and children. Alas! Even then, my mind is devoid of thoughts of Shiva,
but filled with great pride and arrogance! O Shiva! O MahAdeva! O
Shambhu! Forgive my offense!

And in my old age, my organs lose their vitality and sharpness. I am
miserable, subjected to the three kinds of miseries (tApatraya -
AdhyAtmika, Adhibhautika, and Adhidaivika) from sins, diseases, and losses,
and my body is decayed due to lack of growth. Even in this sorry state,
my mind wanders about being distracted by unreal things, delusion, and
vain desires but is devoid of thoughts of (You) dhUrjaTi (One who wears
matted locks of hair on the head)! O Shiva! O MahAdeva! O Shambhu!
Forgive my offense!

I am unable to perform the smArta karmas (nitya karmas) even though
omission of even a single step of such karmas is extremely sinful.
(While I cannot even do the smArta karmas) how can I (defend my
non-performance of) the (obligatory) shrauta karmas that are enjoined for
the dvijas and are essential in the path to attain Brahman? I do not have
any respect for dharma, nor do I inquire into shravaNa (hearing the shruti)
and manana (reasoning about and reflection on the shruti texts). What can
I contemplate on (nididhyAsitavyam.h) ? O Shiva! O MahAdeva! O Shambhu!
Forgive my offense!
