divine biessings sustain us



भद्रं कर्णभिःश्रुणुयामदेवाः भद्रं पश्येम अक्षभिर्यजत्राः।

स्थिरैरङगैः तुष्टुवाँसस्तनूभिः व्यशेम देवहितं यदायुः।।

bhadram karnebhih srunuyama devaah bhadram pashyeama askshabhir yajatraah

sthiraih angaaih thushtuvaamsa tanoobhih vyasema devahitam yadhaayuh

Oh Gods, we will only hear with our ears what is good and safe an propitious for us, we shall only see good things with our eyes you protectors of yajnas and with our limbs which are firm and with a happy and strong body we shall spend our lifetime which is determined by you, devas.

this manthra is found in all the four vedas and some upanishats and aranyakas also
