Brahmā ca lokādhipatī sahampati

Kat’añjalī andhivaraṁ ayācatha:

Santīdha sattāpparajakkha-jātikā

Desetu dhammaṁ anukampimaṁ pajaṁ.

The Brahmā Sahampati, Lord of the World,

with hands palm-to-palm before his heart, requested a blessing:

There are beings here with only a little dust in their eyes.

Please teach the Dhamma out of compassion for them.
