Prayer of Acarya Shrila Prabhodhananda Sarasvati
kalah kalir balina indriya-vairi-vargah
sri-bhakti-marga iha kantaka-koti-ruddhah
ha ha kva yami vikalah kim aham karomi
caitanya-candra yadi nadya krpam karosi
"Now it is the age of Kali. My enemies headed by the senses are very strong. The beautiful path of bhakti to the Supreme Lord is spiked with countless thorns like karma, jnana, and unregulated sense enjoyment. O Lord Chaitanyachandra, if You do not bestow Your mercy on me today, then, being confused, where will I go and what will I do?"
