ye nāma kechit iha naḥ prathayanti avajñām
jānanti te kim api tān prati na eṣa yatnaḥ
utpatsyate tu mama ko api samāna-dharmā
kālo hi ayaṁ niravadhiḥ vipulā cha pṛthvī
Mālatī-mādhava (play by Bhavabhūti)

śravaṇaṁ kīrtanaṁ viṣṇoḥ smaraṇaṁ pāda-sevanam
archanaṁ vandanaṁ dāsyaṁ sakhyam ātma-nivedanam
iti puṁsārpitā viṣṇau bhaktiś chen nava-lakṣaṇā
kriyeta bhagavaty addhā tan manye ‘dhītam uttamam
(SB: 7.5.23-24)

taṁ mopayātaṁ pratiyantu viprā
gaṅgā cha devī dhṛta-chittam īśe
dvijopasṛṣṭaḥ kuhakas takṣako vā
daśatv alaṁ gāyata viṣṇu-gāthāḥ
(SB: 1.19.15)

varīyān eṣa te praśnaḥ kṛto loka-hitaṁ nṛpa
ātmavit-sammataḥ puṁsāṁ śrotavyādiṣu yaḥ paraḥ
(SB: 2.1.1)

kiṁ pramattasya bahubhiḥ parokṣair hāyanair iha
varaṁ muhūrtaṁ viditaṁ ghaṭate śreyase yataḥ
(SB: 2.1.12)

mat-tulyo nāsti pāpātmā nāparādhī cha kaśchana
parihāre ’pi lajjā me kiṁ bruve puruṣottama
(CC: Madhya-līlā, 1.190, BRS: 1.2.154)

tṛṇād api sunīchena taror iva sahiṣṇunā
amāninā mānadena kīrtanīyaḥ sadā hariḥ
(Śikṣāṣṭakam: 3)
