In the beginning, as a result of my own deeds in past lives, I arrive in the womb of my mother, and stay there in all helplessness and discomfort. Forgive me, O Lord. Forgive my sinful past deeds. In infancy, I do not even know how to express my hunger, thirst, pain, and suffering of other kinds. Even as some worms bite me and sickness torments me, I just suffer, bound as I am by an infant's limitations. Alas, I do not yet remember You! Please forgive me.
