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!
