A Vishnu Sloka


वनमाली गदी शार्ङ्गी शङ्खी चक्री च नन्दकी
श्रीमान्नारायणो विष्णुर्-वासुदेवोऽभिरक्षतु ||

vanamAli gadI shArngI shankhI chakrI cha nandakI
shrImAn nArAyaNo vishNur vAsudevo'bhirakshatu

Sriman Narayana, who wears the garland of flowers (vanamali) and who has the mace (sharnga), conch, discus and the sword (nandaki)- may that all-pervasive Vasudeva protect us all.
