कुरु पुण्यमहोरत्रम् स्मर नित्यमनित्यतां
tyaja durjanasaṁsargaṁ bhaja sādhusamāgamaṁ|
kuru puṇyamahoratram smara nityamanitytāṁ|
Please cut off connections and camaraderie with evil people and always look out for and secure the company of the noble and wise ones. Do good without caring for day and night and always remember what we find as routine things happening daily can abruptly cease to happen.
The well meaning friends will always guide us in the right way but the timeservers would overload us with sweet homilies which may not be of any use at the crunch hour. As chanakya said elsewhere, the god of death is always having a hand on our hair ready to drag us to his world, hence we should never wait for day or night to do good. There are too many good things to be done in this life, and we may not be able to do everything… but can't we try to do our best before we depart? " Miles to go before I sleep " to quote Frost.
Have a nice and happy day
with profound respect and warm regards

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life is GOVINDA alone.
