apasyatas tvac-caranambujam prabho
drstih pranasta tamasi pravista
diso na jane na labhe ca santim
yatha nisayam udupe pranaste
Daruka said: Just as on a moonless night people are merged into darkness and cannot find their way, now that I have lost sight of Your lotus feet, my Lord, I have lost my vision and am wandering blindly in darkness. I cannot tell my direction, nor can I find any peace.
