Meaning : Aum! O gods, may we hear auspicious words with the ears, while engaged in yagnas, may we see auspicious things with the eyes, while praising the gods with steady limbs, may we enjoy a life that is beneficial to the gods, may Indra of ancient fame be auspicious to us, may the supremely rich (or all-knowing) Pusa (god of the earth), be propitious to us.
