|Antya-līlā||Chapter 1: Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī's Second Meeting With the Lord|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 1.31
śivānanda kukkura dekhi' daṇḍavat kailā
dainya kari' nija aparādha kṣamāilā
śivānanda — Śivānanda Sena; kukkura — the dog; dekhi' — seeing there; daṇḍavat kailā — offered obeisances; dainya kari' — exhibiting humbleness; nija — personal; aparādha — offenses; kṣamāilā — asked to be forgiven.
When he saw the dog sitting in that way and chanting the name of Kṛṣṇa, Śivānanda, because of his natural humility, immediately offered his obeisances to the dog just to counteract his offenses to it.
