svarthasyakovidam dhin mam
yo ’ham isvaratam prapya
stribhir go-khara-vaj jitah
To hell with me! I am such a fool that I didn’t even know what was good for me, although I arrogantly thought I was highly intelligent. Although I achieved the exalted position of a lord, I allowed myself to be conquered by women as if I were a bullock or a jackass.
All the fools of this world consider themselves very wise scholars even though, intoxicated by sense gratification and maddened by their lust for women’s association, they become just like bullocks and jackasses. By the mercy of a saintly spiritual master, this lusty propensity can gradually be removed and one can understand the terrible, contemptible nature of material sense gratification. In this verse King Pururava is coming to his senses in Krsna consciousness.
