(From: Atharva Veda)
Lord! While engaged in sacrifices intently,
May we hear auspicious words with ears truly,
May we see auspicious things with eyes clearly,
While praising gods with steady limbs devotedly,
May we enjoy a life that beneficial to gods be,
May Indra of ancient fame, auspicious to us be,
May all-knowing earth god, propitious to us be,
May evil up rooter Garud, well minded to us be,
May Brihaspati ensure our welfare completely.
Om ! Peace ! Peace ! Peace !
