O Protector of Ve:da:s! Your Lotus-Feet are adorned by gem-studded anklets. The sounds emanating from them are melodious music to our ears. It is as if Ve:dic sounds arose out of them. In different ages, You assumed different forms like a fish or swan and rescued the Ve:da:s lost by Bramha. All great devotees consider that, service to You is of utmost importance and adorn their head and neck with divine ornaments obtained from You. They study the Ve:da:s and keep them as ornaments of the neck and keep Your Feet as ornaments of the head. From those Feet, the anklets give off melodious sounds. All those sounds are of the Ve:da:s themselves, we look upon the anklets as the jewel box of the Ve:da:s.

 

JAI SRIMANNARAYANA !
