Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.23.29
so 'haḿ kālāvaśeṣeṇa
śoṣayiṣye 'ńgam ātmanaḥ
yadi syāt siddha ātmani
saḥ aham — I; kāla-avaśeṣeṇa — with whatever time remains; śoṣayiṣye — shall reduce to the minimum; ańgam — this body; ātmanaḥ — my; apramattaḥ — unbewildered; akhila — entire; sva-arthe — in the real self-interest; yadi — if; syāt — there remains any (time); siddhaḥ — satisfied; ātmani — within myself.
If there is any time remaining in my life, I will perform austerities and force my body to subsist on the bare necessities. Without further confusion I shall pursue that which constitutes my entire self-interest in life, and I shall remain satisfied within the self.
