Vakratunda Mahakaaya
Suryakoti Samaprabha
Nirvighnam Kuru Mey Deva
Sarva Kaaryeshu Sarvada
(The Lord who has the magnificance of a Million suns, I pray to you Oh Lord, to remove the obstacles from all the actions I intend to perform).

Om Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu :(May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all).

Guru brahma, guru vishnu
guru devo maheshwarah
guru sakshat parabrahma
thasme sri guruve namaha

Mathru devo bhava, pithru devo bhava, guru devo bhava, adththi devo bhavo

Om bhur bhuvahsvah
tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yonah prachodayat
(Through the coming, going and the balance of life the essential nature which illumes existence is the adorable one may all perceive through subtle intellect the brilliance of enlightenment)

Aum Trayambakam Yajamahe,
Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam;
Urva Rukamiva Bandhanaan,
Mrityor Mokshiye Maamritat
