Let my salutations be to Vratpati (The master of the yogis). Let my salutations be to
Ganpati (The master of groups of gods). Let my salutations be to Pramathpati (The Master of the first group of
Lord Shankar's servants). Let my salutations be to Lamobodar-Ekdanta (The God with big belly and one tooth).
Also let my salutations be to Vighnanashin (the destroyer of disaster) and to Shivsut (Son of Shiva). Let my
salutations be over and over again to Shrivardamurti (The idol of the God who blesses us).
(Now Atharva Rushi wants to tell us about the results of this prayer.) The person who reads
this Atharvashirsha (This prayer as told by Atharva Rushi) he gets salvation. He gets pleasure all the time. He is
not affected by disasters. He is saved from the five biggest sins. His all the sinful activities done during the
day time are ended after he reads (this) in the evening. His all the sinful activities done during the night time
are ended after he reads (this) in the morning. And he is totally cleansed out of sins who reads (this) in the evening
and in the morning. He is out of all the troubles and also achieves everything from Dharma (Virtuousness), Artha (Wealth),
Kama (Love) and Moksha (Salvation) who reads (this) everywhere. This (Atharvashirsha) should not be given (taught)
to the unfaithful and disrespectful disciple. If anybody does give (teach) this (Atharvashirsha) due to temptation,
he will be the most sinful person. Whatever is wished (mentally) comes true when thousand cycles (readings) of this
(Atharvashrisha)are done. He becomes a (talented) speaker when he does Abhishek (praying with water) (Ganesh) with
this (Atahrvshirsha instead of water). He becomes wiser when he fasts on the forth day (after the New Moon day) and
repeats (like chanting) this Atharvashirsha. This is what Atharva Rushi has declared. (That is why it is unquestionable.)
He will be as wealthy as Kubera (The treasurer of Gods)
when he offers (with devotion) grass roots to Ganesh. He will be victorious and smarter when he offers (with devotion)
puffed rice to Ganesh. He will get whatever he desires when he offers (with devotion) thousand modaks (laddoos) to Ganesh.
He gets every thing again and again when he does the sacrifice with all the necessary (pooja) things.
He shines like the Sun when he teaches this (Atharvashirsha) to (at least) eight Brahmins. He becomes
Sidhhmantra (one who can achieve the results of the mantras instantly) when he recites this (Atharvashirsh) near the
banks of the great rivers during solar eclipse time. He (also) becomes free of the greatest dangers. He (also) becomes
free of the greatest impurities. He (also) becomes free of the greatest sins. He knows everything. He knows everything.
This is how this Atharvashirsh ends.
With Om as the beginning, this (teaching) may protect both of us (The
master and the disciple), may be
useful to both of us. Both of us will be victorious. Our knowledge will shine (with this
teaching.) (Both of us will shine with this teaching.). We will be never jealous. O Gods!
We will use our ears for good purposes (we will not listen foul language). We will use
our eyes for good purposes (we will not see dirty, ugly or unholy things). With our
strong bodies, we will spend rest of our life to serve you (God) and to praise you (God).
Lord Indra may take care of our welfare. Lord Pusha may take care of our welfare. Arishtanemi,
the mighty eagle may do all good things for us. The teacher sage Bruhaspati may give victory. Let there be peace!
Let there be peace! Let there be peace! This is the end of Atharvashirsha.
