maivaṁ mamādhamasyāpi
syād evācyuta-darśanam
hriyamāṇaḥ kāla-nadyā
kvacit tarati kaścana
Synonyms: 
— not; evam — thus; mama — of me; adhamasya — who is the most fallen; api — although; syāt — there may be; eva — certainly; acyuta-darśanam — seeing of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; hriyamāṇaḥ — being carried; kāla-nadyā — by the stream of time; kvacit — sometimes; tarati — crosses over; kaścana — someone.
Translation: 
“ ‘Because I am so fallen, I shall never get a chance to see the Supreme Personality of Godhead.” This was my false apprehension. Rather, by chance a person as fallen as I am may get to see the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Although one is being carried away by the waves of the river of time, one may eventually reach the shore.’
