O! Goddess earth, I bow to thee, who is clothed by all the oceans and whose area of breasts are the mountains, who is the consort of Lord Visnu. Please pardon me for touching you with my feet.
Impart to us those vitalizing forces that come, O Earth, from deep within your body, your central point, your navel; purify us wholly. The Earth is mother; I am son of Earth. The Rain-giver is my father; may he shower on us blessings!
