A prayer for preservation from mental sin and evil promptings
1 Sin of the Mind, avaunt! begone! Why sayest thou what none
Go hence away, I love thee not. Go to the forests and the trees.
My heart is in our homes and cows.
2 Whatever wrong we have committed, sleeping or waking, by
ill-wish, dislike, or slander,
All these offences, which deserve displeasure, may Agni take
from us and keep them distant.
3 Indra and Brāhmanaspati! whatever foolish deed we plan,
May provident Angirasa preserve us from the sin and woe.

In whatever way people surrender unto me, I reciprocate with them accordingly.
