Tyaktvā sva-dharmaṁ caraṇāmbujaṁ harer
bhajann apakvo ‘tha patet tato yadi
Yatra kva vābhadram abhūd amuṣya kiṁ
ko vārtha āpto ‘bhajatāṁ sva-dharmataḥ
The person, who forsakes his swadharma (one’s own dharma) to serve the lotus feet of Lord Srihari, even if he slips from the path or dies before attaining completeness in devotion, can never obtain inauspiciousness in his subsequent birth.
