A Prayer to Aditi for help and protection

1  Aditi is sky, and air’s mid-region, Aditi is the father, son, and mother,

Aditi all the Gods and the Five Nations,  Aditi what is now and what is future.

2  We call for help the Queen of Law and Order, great mother of all those whose ways are righteous,

Far-spread, unwasting strong in her dominion, Aditi wisely leading, well protecting.

3  Sinless may we ascend, for weal, the vessel, rowed with good oars, divine, that never leaketh,

Earth, our strong guard, incomparable Heaven, Aditi wisely leading, well protecting.

4  Let us bring hither, in pursuit of riches, Aditi with our word, the mighty mother,

Her in whose lap the spacious air is lying: may she afford us triply-guarding shelter!aditi
