May my mind be fixed in the speech.O self-manifested Atman, do Thou manifest Thyself unto me.O my mind & speech, may you be fit to reveal unto me the highest knowledge.May I not forget what I have heard.
Without forgetting what I have learnt, may I be able to study day & night.
The right will I speak.
The truth will I speak. May Brahman protect me, May Brahman protect the preceptor.
May Brahman protect me.
May Brahman pretect the perceptor.
