If you wish to earn the affection of your master then always worship the man-lion (form of the lord). One who is keen on seeing an adorned image (in a mirror), (always) decorates the object (first). O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of mundane existence. Entertain yourself incessantly with the honey from the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakmnarasimha.

If the silver that appears in the shell could be made into articles like bracelet etc., then this sorrowful worldly life of yours could also confer eternal-bliss. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of life-circle. Entertain again and again with the honey from the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakm-nsarasomha.

You have mistaken the silk-cotton flower for a lotus grown on earth due to similarity in form. Are fragrance and sweetness present in it? You hover around this in vain, which is devoid of sweetness. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of mundane existence. Resort again and again to the honey from the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakmnarasimha.

Thinking that objects of enjoyment such as a garland of flowers, sandal and women as giving (permanent) happiness you amuse yourself in them. They are like the Ketaki flowers, causing grief after enjoyment. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the worthless desert of mundane existence. Resort again and again to the honey of the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakmnarasimha.

I shell tell you something beneficial. Listen! If you are desirous of eternal happiness. All things seen in a dream are untrue; you bear in mind that all things seen in the wakeful state are also alike. O mind-bee! you wander in vain in the fruitless desert of mundane existence. Entertain again and again with the honey of the pure lotus-feet of (lord) Lakmnarasimha.
