यथेच्छकं अरणसमाधि शान्तर + + + देवनरेषु अर्चित ।
निषेवसे काञ्चनदामप्रभः नमो ऽस्तु ते गौतम सत्यविक्रम ॥ २१ ॥

yathecchakaṃ araṇasamādhi śāntara + + + devanareṣu arcita |
niṣevase kāñcanadāmaprabhaḥ namo 'stu te gautama satyavikrama || 21 ||

Just as thy wish is, thou that art extolled of devas and men, thou dost ensue, with all thy heart, solitude and concentration; thou art resplendent as a garland of gold. Homage then, to thee, O truly valiant Gotama. (21)
