Bhadram karnebhih srunuyama devah Bhadram pasyemaksabhir yajatrah; Sthirair angais tustuvamsas tanubhih Vyaséma deva-hitam yad ayuh.


O Cosmic Gods, may we hear with our human ears all that is auspicious.
O Gods who are truly worthy of worship, may we see with our human eyes all that is auspicious.
May we enjoy our life given by You, offering constant praises with our sound body and earthly existence to You.


To hear an auspicious thing is to invoke God the Inspiration and God the Aspiration.
To see an auspicious thing is to feel God the Light and God the Delight.
