|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 5: The Activities of Sākṣi-gopāla|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 5.47
'mora dharma rakṣā pāya, nā mare nija-jana
dui rakṣā kara, gopāla, lainu śaraṇa'
mora — my; dharma — religious principles; rakṣā pāya — spared; nā — not; mare — die; nija-jana — own kinsmen; dui — two; rakṣā kara — You kindly protect; gopāla — my Lord Gopāla; lainu — I have taken; śaraṇa — shelter under Your lotus feet.
The elderly brāhmaṇa prayed, "My dear Lord Gopāla, I have taken shelter of Your lotus feet, and therefore I request You to please protect my religious principles from disturbance and at the same time save my kinsmen from dying."
