Om paarthaaya pratibodhitaam
Vyaasena grathitaam puraanamuninaa
Amba twaam anusandadhaami
Om. O Bhagavad Gita, with which Partha was illumined by Lord Narayana Himself, and which was composed within the Mahabharata by the ancient sage, Vyasa, O Divine Mother, the destroyer of rebirth, the showerer of the nectar of Advaita, and consisting of eighteen discourses-upon Thee, O Gita, O affectionate Mother, I meditate!
