स्मरतो अवलोकितेश्वरं सूर्यभूतो व नभे प्रतिष्ठति ॥ ७ ॥

saci merutalātu pātayed ghatanārthāya praduṣṭamānasaḥ |
smarato avalokiteśvaraṃ sūryabhūto va nabhe pratiṣṭhati || 7 ||

If a man happens to be hurled down from the brink of the Meru, by some wicked person with the object of killing him, he has but to think of Avalokitesvara, and he shall, sunlike, stand firm in the sky.
