This universe is truly the divine person only.

Therefore it subsists on him, the self-effulgent divine being, who is the producer of joy for the universe, who exists in the form of the universe, who is the master and the cause of humanity, whose forms are the various gods, who is imperishable, who is the all-surpassing ruler and savior, who is superior to the world, who is endless and omniform, who is the goal of humanity, who is the destroyer of sin and ignorance, who is the protector of the universe and the ruler of individual souls, who is permanent, supremely auspicious and unchanging, who has embodied himself in man as his support, as the indwelling spirit, who is supremely worthy of being known by the creatures, who is embodied in the universe and who is the supreme goal.

Narayana is the highest self, the supreme light, the supreme reality designated as Brahman, the infinite self, the most excellent meditator and meditation.

Whatsoever there is in this world known through perception or through report, all that is pervaded by Narayana within and without.

He is Brahma, Shiva, Vishnu, Indra, the material and efficient cause of the universe and the supreme self-luminous pure consciousness.

Om peace, peace, peace.
