Lord! Whose persuations have prevented you from coming to me and redeeming me? Or else, is it that you are nonexistent here? I have analyzed the words of sages and works of wise men to find the truth to no avail. In several incarnations, in the presence of devotees dear to you, you said you would ever be at their service.
I relied on this assurance and felt happy that nothing could deflect you from keeping your word. It is strange that instead of relying on your own judgment you have allowed yourself to be misdirected! That is my fate.
