Adhyavochadadhi vakta prathamo daivyo bhishhakhAhishcha sarvajnjambhayantsarvashcha yatudhanyah
Let Him intercede on my behalf and speak in my favor, even Rudra, that foremost one,held high in honor by the gods, the physician. Let him annihilate the enemies of mine like scorpions, snakes, and tigers, and the unseenenemies like the Rakshasas, spirits and demons.
Asau yastamro aruna uta babhruh sumangalahYe chemarudra abhito dixu Shritah sahasrashoavaishhaheda imahe
This Sun who is copper-red when he arises, then golden-youllow, this highly auspiciousand beneficent one is truly Rudra.These other Rudras who are quartered round about in all directions of this earth, may I ward off their anger by my praise.
