Is Partial to those who chant his name and meditate on him and blesses them,
He looks after those devas and sages who think about him,
He is the cause of death of the tribe of very bad poisonous elephants.

2.Wearing a golden crown and other garlands,
Who looks great and shines like the white mountain- greatly shines,
Who puts an end the dark aspects like passion , fear , arrogance and irrationality,
Who has fame , great fame , He who chats and chats with sages like,
Sanaka , Suka , Narada , Patanjali , Parachara and Mathanga
And who is the embodiment of ultimate truth and leads to salvation ,
And who is the form of Vedic saying that “You are that”
