tasmai namo bhagavate purusaya bhumne
visvaya visva-gurave para-daivataya
narayanaya rsaye ca narottamaya
hamsaya samyata-gire nigamesvaraya
I offer my humble obeisances to Him, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He is the all-pervading and all-inclusive form of the universe, as well as its spiritual master. I bow down to Lord Narayana, the supremely worshipable Deity appearing as a sage, and also to the saintly Nara, the best of human beings, who is fixed in perfect goodness, fully in control of his speech, and the propagator of the Vedic literatures.
