The father of Budha is on His forehead
Around His neck there is someone
Who is eaten by someone else
That somone else gives the back-ride to Someone
The consort of that Somone is very unsteady
May your house be blessed
Being steady by this unsteady One.

O mA! I get it.
Somebody who wears the moon on his head
Around his neck is a serpant that is prey to Garuda,who
carries on his back Hari, whose consort Laksmi is fickle
May the house be blessed by her.

Is that it?

Your are surely blessed, Madanmohanji!

I think, I should mention here that this is called DrAviDa-prANAyAma, the indirect approach, since Dravidian people touch their noses by taking the hands behind their heads while doing prANAyAma.
