Translation

Salutations Brhaspati! Lord of Tara, one who is born of Brahma.

Oh omnipresent one, Oh Lord of great strength, Lord of speech, Lord of lovely Dhanus and Mina, whose form is adored by Indra and the other Gods, and who is the great intellectual honored by divinities like Madhava.

Oh most esteemed teacher of the Gods, wielder of the thunderbolt, of auspicious markings, teacher of the three worlds, one who is not affected by old age and the like, unexcitable, father of Kaca, the divine Kalpataru for those who take refuge in Him, who is a delight to Shiva and Guruguha, and the bestower of offspring, kin to the distressed, the manifester of the four phases of speech, an ocean of compassion. Who is devoid of all illness, the author of smrti, uncontrolled, the Lord of the Universe, the untarnished one, who delights in the worlds and is the bestower of vigor.
