Translation

I worship Ketu, the great demon who is foremost of the shadow planets.

Who wears a peculiar crown and auspicious dress. Who is happy in his part human-like body and is friendly in the group of nine planets.

Who is adored by the Ketum-krinvan mantra, who is exceedingly wrathful, a descendent of Jaimini, who savours his grain, and has his flag with the cut-out triangle. Who bears the fan of Guruguha, whose distinction lies in his discernment of good and bad, who causes eclipses and moves in a counterclockwise direction.
