sata sandhi jara jara, tava ei kalevara,
patana haibe eka-dina
bhasma krmi vistha habe, sakalera ghrnya tabe,
ihate mamata arvacina
ore mana suna mora e satya vacana
e rogera mahausadhi, krsna-nama niravadhi,
niramaya krsna rasayana
1) A dancing puppet of a hundred joints, your mortal coil in its last moments: this physical form is doomed to destruction. Ashes to ashes, worm and dung, what was beautiful once is a horrible thing;
2) To adore it is the gravest misconception. My dear mind, hear the truth attentively: the panacea for this malady - chant Krsna's name constantly; Krsna is the life of immortality."
Bhaktivinoda Thakura uses this verse as a purport for Verse 3 for the Siksastakam.
