Om, May the Guru and the disciple be paved on the path of Study together,
Together guru and disciple enjoy Studies,
Together, the Guru and the disciple should do the work of study with deep concentration,
Let what we study be full of genius;
May it not give rise to enmity because of ignorance,
Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.
