SB 10.66.6
yani tvam asmac-cihnani
 maudhyad bibharsi satvata
tyaktvaihi mam tvam saranam
 no ced dehi mamahavam

O Satvata, give up my personal symbols, which out of foolishness You now carry, and come to me for shelter. If You do not, then You must give me battle.

Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti again interprets Paundraka’s words according to the inspiration of Sarasvati, the goddess of learning. Thus they may be understood to mean “Out of foolishness I have assumed an imitation conchshell, disc, lotus and club, and You are maintaining these by allowing me to use them. You have not yet subdued me and gotten rid of these imitation symbols. Therefore please mercifully come and liberate me by forcing me to give them up. Give me battle, and grant me liberation by killing me.”
