ब्रह्बाण्डच्छत्रदण्डः शतधृतिभवनाम्भोरुहो नालदण्डः
क्षोणीनौकूपदण्डः क्षरदमरसरीद्पट्टिकाकेतुदण्डः ।
ज्योतिश्क्राक्षदण्डस्त्रिभुवनविजयस्तम्भदण्डोऽङ्घ्रिदण्डः
श्रेयस्त्रैविक्रमस्ते वितरतु विबुधद्वेषिणां कालदण्डः ॥

The middle shaft of the umbrella for the protective space, the stem of lotus of creator brahma, the conqueror of all worlds, the shaft of the earth-ship’s mast, the flag shaft of infinite starry worlds, the central axis of bright wheel of light, the foot of trivikrama – may you be blessed by that daNDaH raised on high; for those enemies of wisdom it is the punishment rod of time!
