His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


aho imaṁ paśyata me vināśaṁ
tapasvinaḥ sac-carita-vratasya
antarjale vāri-cara-prasaṅgāt
pracyāvitaṁ brahma ciraṁ dhṛtaṁ yat


aho—alas; imam—this; paśyata—just see; me—of me; vināśam—falldown; tapasvinaḥ—who was such a great mystic performing austerity; sat-carita—of very good character, observing all necessary rules and regulations; vratasya—of one who has taken a vow strictly; antaḥ-jale—in the depths of the water; vāri-cara-prasaṅgāt—because of the affairs of the aquatics; pracyāvitam—fallen; brahma—from the activities of Brahman realization or austerity; ciram—for a long time; dhṛtam—executed; yat—which.


Alas! While practicing austerity, even within the depths of the water, and while observing all the rules and regulations practiced by saintly persons, I lost the results of my long austerities simply by association with the sexual affairs of fish. Everyone should observe this falldown and learn from it.
