O Devi! One who meditates on you as the radiance of a bundle of rays of nectar and installs you in his heart as the effulgence of a form sculpted out of moonstone, conquers the pride of snakes as Garuda (counteracts the effects of snake poison) and , by his looks which shower nectar, relieves the illness of those who are scorched by high fever.
(to be repeated ೩೨ times a day)
(Sloka ೨೦ from Soundarya Lahari by Adi Shankaracharya)
