सर्वे कालस्य वशगाः कालो तस्य वशे स्थितः ।।

ऋग्यजुः सामाधर्वाख्यान् वेदान् पूर्वादिभिर्मुरवैः। शास्त्रमिज्यां स्तुतिस्तोमं प्रायश्चित्तं व्यधात्क्रमात्।।
आयुर्वेदं धनुर्वेदं गान्धर्व वेदमात्मनः। स्थापत्यं चासृजद् वेदं क्रमात्पूर्वादिभिर्मुखैः ।।
इतिहास पुराणानि पञ्चमं वेदमीश्वरः। सर्वेभ्य एव वक्त्रेभ्यः ससृजे सर्वदर्शन्र्र्रः ।।

स्थपतिः स्थापनार्हः स्यात् सर्वशास्त्र विशारदः । न हीनाङ्गोऽतिरिक्ताङ्गो धार्मिकस्तु दयापरः ।।
अमात्सर्योऽनसूयश्च तन्द्रितस्त्वभिजातवान् । अगणितज्ञः पुराणज्ञः सत्यवादी जितेन्द्रियः ।।
चित्रज्ञस्सर्व देशज्ञश्रानन्दात्मा अलुब्धकः । अरोगी चाप्रमादीच सप्तम्पसनवर्जितः ।।
सुनामादृढबुद्धिश्च्र्र्र्र वास्तुविद्याब्धि पारगः ।।
