Sudhmaalam drvayantim pibantim
sudhmrtime cidnandarpm.(1)

I bow to that embodiment of ambrosia which is Consciousness and Bliss incarnate. It melts the orb of the moon and drinks (the moon-light). It shines with its profuse lustre inside the suumn located in the lotus of adhra.

Suumn : a vein of the body supposed to be one of the passages for the breath.

adhra : one of the mystical circles in the body.

I worship that Goddess Bhavn who is seated on the triangle which shines in the midst of the filaments of the white lotus. She is extremely beautiful with lovely and charming grace. She has a shining red body similar to that of innumerable rising suns.
