“I surrender with body, mind and soul to the great, beautiful Personality of Godhead, manifested as Agni, possessed of unlimited eyes and flashing teeth, whose resting place is under a palasha tree, whose golden abode flashes in the sky like lightening, who is accompanied by all the devatas, who are situated in the metal kumbha. Being full of strength, attentive and unblinking, You watch for demons. You are manifest in twelve forms, known as Your sons. Those aspirants who, throughout the years, worship You with sacrifices, achieve the spiritual status of Brahman.

 

You are the best amongst the devas. May I become the best amongst men by becoming Your devotee. He who is part of the Lord, follows after the Lord. May I thus seek after You. May I not offend by my faulty chanting, my faulty offerings, my faulty activities. I surrender to You; inspired by You, I perform this activity. May it bring me satisfaction. May it bring me spiritual prosperity. May I reach the ultimate goal.

 

You are the all-pervading Personality, unlimited ocean. Be merciful upon me. You are Tutha, Vishvadeva, and the son of Brahma. Be merciful upon me. You are the deliverer from fear, the wisest one, the sun and the moon. Please be merciful upon me.

 

To the many-eyed, smiling Lord, the all pervading ocean of mercy, to the all powerful, all wealthy, all strong, all knowing, all perceiving Personality, the son of Brahma, the Supreme Lord, possessor of all opulences, I pay my respects.”

 

He should throw the rice to the North East, and give the flowers and fruit to the brahma priest.

 

Then he should say:

 

om tapash ca tejas ca shraddha ca
hrish ca satyam ca akrodhash ca
tyagash ca dhritish ca dharmash ca sattvan ca
vak ca manash ca atma ca brahma ca

 

tani prapadye, tani mam avantu “I surrender to austerity, energy, faith, humility, truth, absence of anger, renunciation, patience, righteousness, goodness, words, mind, soul. May they be merciful upon me.”

 

Amantrika Homa (silent homa):

 

He should throw ghee-soaked wood of pradesha length with flowers and gandha into the fire silently.
