ये तुभ्य विघ्रकरा ते तु अपक्रमन्तु श्रेयावहा तु ति बलं विपुलं लभन्तु ।
यं च व्रतं समुपगच्छसि तस्य पारं गच्छासि मत्तवरवारणखेलगामि ॥ ८४ ॥

ye tubhya vighrakarā te tu apakramantu śreyāvahā tu ti balaṃ vipulaṃ labhantu |
yaṃ ca vrataṃ samupagacchasi tasya pāraṃ gacchāsi mattavaravāraṇakhelagāmi || 84 ||

“Let those who would impede you be gone. Let those who bring support win abundant strength. May you whose stride is stately like that of elephant in rut fully achieve the end you aim at.” (84)
