rāya kahe, āilā yadi pāmara śodhite
darśana-mātre śuddha nahe mora duṣṭa citte
dina pāńca-sāta rahi' karaha mārjana
tabe śuddha haya mora ei duṣṭa mana
rāya kahe — Rāmānanda Rāya replied; āilā — You have come; yadi — although; pāmara — a fallen soul; śodhite — to rectify; darśana-mātre — simply seeing You; śuddha nahe — not purified; mora — my; duṣṭa — polluted; citte — consciousness; dina — days; pāńca-sāta — five or seven; rahi' — staying; karaha — kindly do; mārjana — cleansing; tabe — then; śuddha — pure; haya — it is; mora — my; ei — this; duṣṭa — polluted; mana — mind.
Rāmānanda Rāya replied, "My Lord, although You have come to correct me, a fallen soul, my mind is not yet purified simply by seeing You. Please stay for five or seven days and kindly cleanse my polluted mind. After that much time, my mind will certainly be pure."
