Punar dada-taagh-nataa jaana-taa sam-gamemahihi (Rig Veda 2:21:12) We call upon the Teacher of wisdom, surrounded by his eager students, to teach us our duty. May those men who are benefactors of all mankind help in achieving this elevated existence. May the indivisible one shower blessings upon us. May we ever unswervingly follow the path of duty as do the sun and the moon. May we move in the society of the learned and pious who are Charitably disposed and non-violent in their deeds.
